You can check your coolant level when it is cold pop radiator cap off and add fluid and make sure your overflow is up to a good level. if the light comes back on after that than you need to take to mechanic.

Pontiac gp 02 overheating


thermostat should be replace on over heated engine, the spring loses tension, probaly not problem, most like head gasket if over heated severly, if you have a air pocket & wornt purge thats one sign,press test on cold engine let sit at start up run slightly rough may see & smell coolant at tail pipe, could also pull plugs may have one wet all crude checks, there is also chemical you put in coolant & use a a stripe for combustion I think napa or snap on sells, alsoyou could do tear down & inspection wish you luck not sure what engine or car you have grand am or grand prix my guess a GP with poss 3.4 more likely then 3800 engine

2001 Pontiac GP (3.8l l36) oil getting into


Remove timing cover and replace gasket. The pump is in the cover and I have seen gasket failure there that will cause oil in coolant. Your motor is a 3800.

1996 Pontiac Grand prix Coolant problem.


The car came with GM dexcool in it and was mixed with a noncompatable antifreeze. You need to flush to entire cooling system including the heater core. Any Certified shop can handle this job and recycle the used fluid. As for the Ck engine light only a scan can tell you if it is related or not.

Engine overheats on Pontiac 2002 GP


Check the catalytic converter. If it is clogged, it will reduce your your power and increase the temp of the car, especially on steep inclines.

Overheating, no coolant loss


I have a 1996 Pontiac Firebird with the 3.8 L V6, and have had problems until I replaced the DexCool (it's never ran so good!) However relating to your problem, there was a class action lawsuit regaurding the 1996 GMC/BUICK/PONTIAC 3.1 L engine, due to DexCool destroying the engine/heads/etc. Follow the link - I do not know all of the details, but it may be worth checking out. 1996 was the first year that DexCool was used at GM.
Hope it helps.
