SOURCE: Car won't start
Check the lever for putting the car in park/drive.
If the switch/sensor that detects where it is at (i.e. P, R, N, D, 2, 1) is broken or loose, it may think the car is not in Park and cars with automatic transmissions will not start unless they are in Park.
It might also be the starter is bad.

There is a coolant level sensor located in the radiator on the engine side of the radiator. It has (1) single wire connecting to the sensor. There is a very high possibility the sensor has lost its calibration. The sensor is not very expensive. Allow the engine to go cold, don't want you to get burned. You will have to drain a small amount of fluid when you change the sensor It sounds like you have verified the fluid level in the radiator and it is good.
Oh, and make sure it is connected before you change it.
Good luck and let me know.

SOURCE: Low Pressure Valve 97 Grand Am
The low pressure valve is down by the AC Compressor. It is part of the aluminum manifold that connects directly to the AC compressor. It is accessible from above, but easier to reach from under the car.
By the way, is there any particular reason why you want to recharge your AC system? If it isn't working, adding refrigerant will not necessarily fix the problem. If the refrigerant has all leaked out, you probably need to evacuate the system first.

Sounds like air in fuel line. Purge fuel line. By "crank", do you mean engine spins but won't catch? Try starter fluid in intake.

9 QUARTS??? Dude! that transmission barely holds 9 quarts when it is totally empty! You are going to destroy some stuff and have fluid everywhere!
The transmission fluid level must be checked from under the vehicle. It is easiest on a lift, but if you can get the car up on jack stands or something, that will work, as long as the car is LEVEL. To check the fluid level, start and run the engine for several minutes to get the oil hot. Then remove the check plug located just below and forward of the right drive axle. (See picture below) The fluid should be level with the edge of the hole (or just barely running out) when it is full. (This is checked with the engine RUNNING)
For the harsh engagement problem, I would recommend checking your motor mounts, NOT adding fluid.
