Coolant Leak in 1997 Saturn SL1

I have a 1997 Saturn Sl1 that has just recently had a new engine put in. The car started to over heat and check engine lights came on, and the heater went out. I was told that it is probably leaking coolant. I had "fix-a-leak" put in and then refilled with new coolant. It is still overheating and heat will not work. What could the problem be without paying for a diagnosis?
Thank you

If there is no heat coming from the vents i would bleed the coolant system for air, usually trapped air in the system will cause this lack of heat.

That makes no sense at all. Coolant will cool better than water.

How to fix the heat system in a 97 Saturn sl1...it is only giving cool-cold air and i just replaced the thermostat and flushed the radiator. What do you think the problem may be?


Maybe the heater core is plugged or perhaps you have an air pocket in the cooling system. Try and bleed the cooling system once more.

Hard to start


warriorangel
have a 97 sl1 which was very hard to start and when it would it ran rough and stalled out easily. sometimes no start. It turned out to be the heater sensor on the engine block (right side as you face the hood. just under the heater hose. the part was 17.00 or 27.00
I don't remember which but it ultimately was sending misinformation to the computer module and it always "thought" it was too hot and would adjust incorrectly. the major clue was therm
indicator read hot even when cold and just started. took me 2 days
to figure it out before spending money. good luck.
