Check the upper radiator house. When the engine is cool this hose is cool and soft to a squeeze pressure. If you check the same hose while the engine is hot "use caution as this hose might be very hot" this hose shoud be hot and stiff to the touch (louded under pressure). Lack of either is normally a sign of a bad thermostat or a failing water pump. Also check that the water reservoir cap is not leaking, is only a $5 fix.

As both hoses from the heater core are hot, there is no need to replace the heater core.
The problem will be in the heater control under the dash. I have no experience with Saturn, but I am responding to your problem so as not to remove the heater core.. That would be wasted time and money. The heater, A/C mixture control is the problem.
Someone else will need to guide you through the rest of the way.
Sorry i could not lead you all the way through.
