Rather than take any chances the temp gage cost $10.00 at the parts store, and is relitively easy to replace. If you have not changed the fluid lately, I would do this as well. I just recently did this in my garage with a 10mm box wrench and ratchet using a flashlight to help see. The 6mm bolts may be a little tough to get at,but it is doable. I replaced the thermostate and fluid for around $20.00. Also, if it is a DOHC look on the drivers side on the head, you should see a temp sensor, if you replace that as well, you will have taken care of all the possible heat related parts on the vehicle. MAke sure to partially drain the system if you want to check the sensor, as fluid will run out if you dont. I also think that there is a resistance reading which you can check to see if the sensor is good, butunfortanuately I do not recall what the ohm reisitance is that can be read with an Ohm meter if you have one. Check out u-tube for additional information as well, they may have a hands on video to follow and explain. Good luck, I have 220000 mi on my car, running strong

Possible that the ECT (engine coolant temperature sensor) is faulty, or the wiring to it has been compromised. Try looking the wiring over. If nothing jumps out at you, replace the sensor. Keep in mind, it's the season for critters to seek warmth from engine heat.

In my 1998 saturn the idiot light keeps coming on for the temperature gauge. The temperature gauge stays normal, the car runs fine. No visible leaking. Do I have a bad head gasket? Its has 170 k miles

Even though my truck is not overheating, the temperature gauge will shoot up to hot and the oil light will come on. After a few minutes, the truck will not let me accelerate anymore. If I shut the truck off, it will reset the oil light and the temp gauge and run fine for a while. But eventually, it will do the same thing again. Is it a sensor or computer problem

97 saturn sl2 temp light flashing and low coolant light flashing what could be the problem ? coolant is full and the heat works.


If the temp gauge is reading normal, the lights are flashing, and the coolant level is full, the level sensor in the coolant bottle is the problem. I'm a service consultant for a Saturn dealer and I've run across this many times.

As a safety measure, fit a new thermostat and senser. Then top up with antifreeze and water pertaining to where you are.
