On my daughters sl2 it is on the driver side. A note though, there are 2. Crazy i know, one above the other. One goes to the guage and one to the computer. When my son had the car it would not stay running at idol, had to rev the engine to keep it going. The engine would shake hard too, what through me was the guage in the care read fine but once i found the sensors the one looked fine the other looked like it split in half. Hope that helps

What kind of transmission fluid do you put in a manual 1996 saturn sl model?


You put gear oil in a manual transmission, not automatic transmission fluid. Look in your owners manual for the proper weight, or ask the guys behind the counter at a parts store.

Location of Thermostat


All Saturns 91-99 have a 1.9L 4 cylinder engine block, only the heads are different. Look at the radiator, it has two large black rubberlike hoses, one top and one bottom, which connect to the engine.
Where the top hose connects, it actually connects to the thermostat housing. Thus you have to drain the coolant, and remove the top hose from the housing end, then the housing from the engine and you will have the thermostat. Make sure you clean all surfaces well before you put the new thermostat in and reattach the housing. Might also be a good time to put new radiator hoses on, top and bottom.

The radiator fan is working fine but the temperature sensor i dont know its locationmy car start overheating sometimes i need help.


The best way to get the exact location for the Temp sensor would be the Haynes Repair manual. As far as your overheating issue goes I would replace the Thermostat and see if that resolves the issue. Make sure the radiator has the correct amount of antifreeze in it.

Where is the thermostat on 1999 Saturn SL and how is this done?


Thermostat is located on the passenger side of the engine. If you look where the two hoses are going from the radiator and the reservoir this part comes out and the thermostat is located underneath.
