SOURCE: coolant light 2004 saturn ion 4 cylinder

I had the same problem. My 2004 Ion had 85000 miles on it. It was a bad sensor. The whole coolant reservoir tank needs to be replaced to fix the problem. This was covered under the extended warranty that we had. If you are doing this repair yourself, a hose clamp tool is recommended for simplicity.

SOURCE: 2004 Saturn Ion oil change

Oil drain plug is its on the back passenger side of the engine out of sight unless you under the car itself .

It's a cartridge filter that goes into a canister.You'll need a 32mm oil filter canister socket to remove the cover to access the filter. You can find it at PepBoys for less than $10 by the other oil change supplies.

Overheating problems

First, you should have replaced the thermostat when the first signs of cooling problems..(the over flow reservoir is just that)..Its time to replace the thermostat, the hoses, and have the radiator flushed and the engine block reverse flushed..Check for coolant in your oil.. if there IS coolant in your oil..(light colored chocolate milky).. its time for a qualified professional... Good luck...

2005 Jeep Liberty 3.7L overheating

it's overheating, for sure,
is coolant levels dropping? cold checked at rad cap?
"pulled over and found a hose to cool the radiator and hose near the thermostat,"
i can not understand this statement"above"
if it overheat only parked, check fan for full ops.
if overheats moving too, wont stay cool moving fast
bad rad cap
bad thermostat , they have 7 year life says STANT. (and why)
belts slipping (to water pump)
rad cores blocked (IR thermo gun it) ask
water pump impellers rust 1/2 gone?

all this assumes no coolant loss, if you have loss, tell where.,
where it leans
passengers toes (foot well)
engine oil pan? milky oil
if A/T TRANS, check it for milky too.

    Oil and service lights

    you most likely need to take the cat to a saturn dealership to have the code reset for the oil change light. Saturn is notorious for designing their cars so that it is necessary to the dealership for repairs.

    Flashing Coolant light + 1

    Draining coolant is very very easy...........first you're going to want to let the car cool down for a few are going to need a plastic drain pan, pliers, flat head screw driver, probably some rags also.....and obviously coolant. First take off the coolant resevoir cap....There are two bolts that your going to want to loosen bolt is on the bottom end of the block and the other is on the bottom passenger side of the radiator. For the bolt on the radiator you way need pliers to loosen the wing nut...when you remove this it is going to come out pretty fast...slide the drain pan underneath the radiator and block and wait till it is done draining. Then put the bolt back on the block......get a garden hose and let it run water through your radiator until the water coming out of the bottom is clear.... after that put the bolt back in on the radiator and fill the system up with a 50/50 mix of coolant and water..... if this is still confusing go to your local auto parts store......and purchase a haynes will walk you through step by step..........since the coolant is milky i would be led to believe that the coolant wasnt changed after replacing the head gasket......or the head gasket wasnt really changed......a good way to tell is if you notice white smoke even after the engine is hot coming from the far as the light it could be that you are low on coolant and i have seen that sensors also went bad......but definately change the coolant.....also check your oil to make sure there is no coolant in the oil ......hope this helps
