Im getting very small bubbles in my radiator when engine is running?
When the motor is off open the lid and slowly squeeze the top radiator hose and it will bubble the antifreeze at the radiator some may spill out but after u squeeze it simultaneously it shouldnt bubble anymore and then just refill what spilt out

You still might have air.do you see curculition through the radiator?,but here is what I want you to do,take the overflow hose frome the radiator,find you a clear pop bottle fill with water stick the hose in there and start the engine and see if you have bubbles( your rad cap have to be on and sealed) If you do your getting compresion in your coolant system,which means you have a blown head gasket,or a cracked head, also you must make sure temp is up to for this test,

Still sounds like a bad radiator...new or from scrapyard? If you can't add coolant faster than a really slow dribble that's a big clue.
You can run the engine with the heater on high and the engine should not air-lock. I'd also remove the thermostat just to make sure it is not defective. Run the engine without it and see if it still overheats. Last, it is possible that your head gasket has failed, and engine compression is causing the overheat. I tend to think not only because the hose stays soft.
While it's running, also make sure that the lower hose is not "sucking in" if it is, replace it. On 4.0 engines you can also get the serpentine belt on wrong and it will drive the pump backwards. if you replaced the belt check that too.

are you using a 190 degree thermostat..do you have a faulty sending unit,also check the heater control valve,make sure you are putting the thermostat in correctly,dont mean to make you sound bad,some of these thermostats are funny

well if the rad cap is damaged in any way the pressure in the rad drops its like a pressure cooker, if you open it fast it boils up on you,,,big time! so there may just be a small leak there,,its well worth having a good look at this part first pluss any other pipes and joints if all is good it could be the head gasket starting to go this can be tested for with a sniffer test
to find out if there are any hydrocarbons in the water in the rad,, its an easy test,, if there are any the head gasket is going or gone,

SATURN USED A PRESSURE COOLANT SURGE TANK AND A INLET SIDE THERMOSTAT.THEY DONT HAVE BLEEDER SCREWS.YOU NEED LET CAR SET A LITTLE AT A TIME CRANK ENGINE FOR FEW MINUTES TURN OFF ENGINE.CHECK COOLANT LEVEL WHEN ENGINE SET LONG ENOUGH NOT TO SCALD YOU REMOVE PRESSURE CAP.ADD COOLANT TO SURGE TANK UNTIL LEVEL STAYS AT HOT FULL.WHEN COOLANT LEVEL QUIT DROPPING YOU HAVE THE RIGHT AMOUNT COOLANT.YOUR PRESSURE CAP COULD CAUSE OVER HEATING AND THE THERMOSTAT COULD BE BAD ALSO.
