Yes. Remove the housing (not the hose) and you'll find the thermostat.

My 1997 grand prix idiles high when you start it stays at 2to 3 grand on r.p.m

The most common causes of high idle speed is a faulty idle air control valve, a sticking throttle cable, or dirty throttle body.
It could also be a vac leak, but that usually does not come and go.

Have you ever cleaned the automatic idle speed control valve and threottle butterfly? It may be your problem. Try the following to clean these parts.
To correct this problem Buy a can of throttle valve cleaner (it is made by CRC) from the local auto parts store, NEVER USE CARB CLEANING SPRAY, IT DESTROYS THE ANTI-STICK TEFLON COATING, spray it into the air intake through the throttle body of the engine until you have used about half the can, you will need to hold the idle up while you do this, it will try to stall, after this shut the engine down and disconnect the Negative (-) battery cable for 5 minutes. The intake is now clean, if you continue to have the idle speed control problems you may need to seek the help of a professional.

    Where is the throttle control sensor located on a 1999 pontiac grand prix gtp

    The throttle control sensor is called a TPS which is mounted on the throttle body. You will see three wires that plug into it. The throttle body replaces the old carburetor since the engine is fuel injected as you may know

    How to replace throttle position sensor on a 1995 pontiac grand prix gtp

    Remove all parts to access the throttle-body, typically the sensor is on the side with 2 screws.  Remove the wired plug and then the two screws.  Assembly is the reverse being careful to fit the flat piece of the throttle-body into the groove of the sensor. Do not overtighten.
    Replace connector and other parts.
    Typically the sensor is on the drivers side of the throttle body. May be a torx screw, or phillips (star).
    Good luck.
    Canada Rocks!

    1995 Grand Prix idling high

    A verry large Vacumn leak .. check for a hose off somewhere..particularily the PCV hose..also were the O rings present or missaligned on the Injectors?? also the gaskets between the lower and upper Intake manifolds could cause this if they were not installed in the proper position.. If you have a scan tool Check Idle air controll motor...Under data stream IAC will read 0 counts this will confirm a vacumn leak

    Idle problem

    throttle position sensor is what I replaced on mine. Could also be a short in a wire that controls throttle. That was 6 years ago and it was $100. Took it to a shop, that's all I got.
