    Why are you wanting to replace? I see the "Got hot" title. It is blown?

Water in dipstick and check engine light comes on

usually whhen there is water or antifreeze showing up on your dipstick, most commonly the head is leaking, this is very bad. it could be a cylinder head gasket leak or worse a cracked or warped block or head. i would get it checked as soon as possible. if it is just a bad gasket then the cost is less(still expensive but less than the other two)
if you let it go too far it could get too hot and cause the head or block to crack or warp.

I have a 2000 grand am I replaced the head baskets car runs great but it still runs hot heater want work and it leaks water from tail pipe help

If you're getting water out of the tail pipe, you could have a head gasket that is leaking coolant into an exhaust port. When you replaced the head gaskets, did you properly clean the gasket mating surfaces of both the heads and the engine block? Did you check the heads for warpage? Did you check the block deck surface for any unevenness? Any of these areas could prevent a new gasket from properly sealing. Are you having to add coolant? Did you replace the thermostat? Did you make sure that the thermostat was properly positioned in the housing? It should go in with the coil spring side to the engine. Did you flush the cooling system and install fresh antifreeze?

I have a 2000 grand am gt i have put on intake gasket, water pump thermastat,tempertaure sensor.and it still running hot so im askin u do you have any advice to help me solve my problem hope to here from...

it sounds as if the car is air locked. Perhaps there was a problem before all of these parts were change. I'd be concerned with the head gasket, or an external leak from some where else. Keep looking. If there is not physical evidence of any leak. Then try to re bleed the cooling system. If that still does not work, then i would be suspect of the head gasket. Unfortunately, you will need to replace both head gaskets on the car. good luck!

I need to know where the thermostat is located in a 2000 pontiac grand am. 6 cyl. my heater no longer works and the car registers hot

I am not familar with your engine but follow your upper radiator hose to where it connects to the engine block. This is usually the thermostat housing. Another option is to buy a Haynes manual for your vehicle. cost about $20 at autozone

99 Grand Am was leaking coolant from the over flow?

could be that it was hot or could be that you have a blown head gasket. If the engine got hot once it could have been enough to blow the head gasket. Does it blow it out after it warms up every time?

I just changed the thermostat on 3.4 L 1999 Pontiac Gr Am GT THINKING IT WOULD FIX THE OVER HEATING. But there is white steam coming out the exhaust! The oil is not milky so it's not a head gasket. There's...

Are you adding coolant?
Yes ......means it's going somewhere.
Fill the coolant tank to the top...right to the top....leave the cap off and run the engine.
If you see bubbles you need a head gasket.
The intake gasket is another source of coolant leaks and at this area the coolant can be sucked into the engine and produce a white smoke.
Does the car run rough at the first start in the morning....could be antifreeze burning off in the cylinder or area that was leaking overnight meaning cyl gasket or intake gasket.
Look at the rear head to block area below the exhaust manifold.
Is there any trace of coolant or stains of coolant......yes means head gasket time.
Pressurizing each cyl at a time with air with the valves closed in that cyl will quickly show the location of the bad head gasket with bubbles coming out of the fill tank on the bad cyl (s).
Head gasket leaks don't always mean milky oil.
