SOURCE: my 1994 4 door saturn keeps overheating but still runs fine. .. .

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

SOURCE: temperature gauge fluctuating surges

That sounds like the classic symptoms of a cracked ECTS (temperature sensor). It is located on the head near the upper radiator hose and battery. You will see two wires (likely a yellow and a black) going to a small sensor hiding in a little cubby hole. If you pull off the connector (there are two points that if you squeeze it lets the connector come off) you will probably see that the connector is corroded because the plastic body of the original ECTS cracked and let a small amount of coolant into the connector. The ECTS is only about a $10-15 part, be sure to get the updated one with a brass body. Then the hard part is you will likely need to get a new connector, one of the best places for that is a junk yard, the temp sensor for the transmission and the air temperature sensor near the air filter use the same connector. When putting this in be sure to solder the connections and cover that with heat shrink tubing. There are video's from Richpin06A on youtube that will show you how if you have any doubts. The saturnfans forum is a great place for info too,

SOURCE: how do you replace low beam headlight on 2008

Access to change the headlamp bulbs is through the wheel well. The recommended method is to remove the front tire and then the plastic inner fender liner. Once removed, you'll have easy (more or less) access to the rear of the headlamp housing.

I will not laugh, this happens alot. There is small face plate around the radio and a/c panel with a small pick pull the panel out which will expose the screws that secure the radio. remember if you disconnect the power from the radio you will have to go to a GM dealer to have the radio reset so it will work

I have a 2008 Saturn Aura XE and the check engine light is on and the temperature gauge is not working.I checked the coolant bottle again, I filled it yesterday and it is still full.

Your problem is not with the coolant level but most likely the ect engine coolant temp sensor this will explain why the temperature gauge not working. Go to autozone or similar and have vehicle scanned for codes
