SOURCE: 2002 caravan, heater problems
That was a common complaint a few years back, due to the fact that the heater core is a little too much higher than the engine, which requires that extra push it gets when engine RPM's increase. One thing I did do on my Caravan was remove my hoses to the heater core, and use a small external pump with hoses to circulate C.L.R. through my core for a while, then let it sit with CLR in the core overnight.Next day I circulated it through again, both ways by reversing hoses, and then re-attached hoses, bled air out of system, and notice quite an improvement in heat at idle. Once cleaned out, the heater core allowed coolant flow through it better at idle. If your stumped by explanation, take it to an automotive shop, or a Rad shop, and get a quote on flushing that core out for you. I recommend the CLR, but it might be too time consuming for you , but a flush will probably show some noticeable improvement.

The radiator fan is not spinning. Car overheats when idling with no air flowing through the radiator fins.
When you are driving, there is enough air flowing through the radiator fins to keep the Saturn cool.
1. Check the radiator fan (cooling fan) fuse.
2. Check the radiator fan electrical connector. It may have vibrated loose.
3. *sigh* .. replace fan motor....
If you need instructions on how to replace fan motor , please comment.
Just don't let the fan scrape against the radiator when you are removing / rfeplacing the motor.
Hope this helps ... and it's just a fuse.
