Question about 1997 Saturn SL
Oil in water
My guess is that the engine was having an overheating problem and one way to deal with that is to remove the thermostat to gain some extra cooling. The over heating could be caused by a clogged radiator or leaking head gasket which can allow exhaust to enter the cooling system and cause it to bubble and overflow. Also, oil can get into the coolant.
Solution: get a compression test on all the cylinders. Expect to need a head gasket replacement.
