Check the operation of the heater control valve. It will be conected to one of the smaller hoses leading to the heater core from the engine.

Where is the thermostat in my 1997 pontiac grand am se?

On most engines, if you follow the top radiator hose from the radiator to the engine...usually, where the hose connects to the engine looks like an elbow with 2 bolt holding it on.
In this housing is where the thermostat is.

Hope this helps...

Low coolant and service engine soon lights are on. Is this a sensor problem I had to replace the thermostat as it stuck closed and the engine overheated.

Your coolant could indeed be low. Double check the level. Often when the cooling system appears to be full, it drops when the thermostat opens and the coolant flows into the engine.
