Question about 2002 Saturn Sl

1 Answer

Saturn SL2 My 2002 Saturn SL2 recently had the coolant light on. I got an oil change and they said the coolant levels were fine. It came back on and then the temperature light just came on as well. After I turn my car off the engine loudly takes its time to cool down, taking anywhere from 30 seconds to a few minutes. It made a screeching noise once today when I put my foot on the gas. What's wrong and how much is it going to cost to fix it?

It sounds like the car is over heating. Have the thermostat changed and go from there. If this doesn't help have your technician look at the radiator and coolant system. Hope this helps. Good luck.

Oil warning light keeps coming on


if you don`t hear any engine noise then its more than likely the oil pressure switch is acting up. this is likely a coincidence that it happened after the oil change. have the oil pressure switch replaced.

Does the trans cooler exist inside the radiator on this V6 engine/auto trans combo? I found a brown foam in my 2001 Saturn V6's coolant overflow tank. It was so thick, i could not read the coolant level. ...


hmmm..........there is a OiL COOLER tube for the transmission cooler in ur radiator, that to keep ur tranny fluid to cool down!

As u said, u checked the engine oil, and it has no decrease on oil level!

Ur right about that... better bring that to ur mechanic and evaluate the radiator, the tube inside might have been damage or corroded!

Hope the seals up ur probs!

The word "coolant' comes on on the odometer screen


Check the collant level in the coolant bottle. If low add coolant. If it is O.K, then you must have a bad coolant level sensor. It is located inside the bottle and is not serviceable, so you need another Coolant Bootle, and it cost about $60. Before replacing, I would try to remoce the coolant bottle and give it a good cleaning with hot water. You can replace it witha new one, or try the luck in a junk yard.

To clear the oil change light,turn the key to on,and press the accelerator pedal three times real slow within 5 seconds,this will clear the light,now on the coolant light sensor,low coolant,remove the sensor on the passengers side of the radiator,it has a wire clip,so use a small pick,with a slight hook on it,the sensor is square,and flat,You will see,it needs to be cleaned out,most likely with air pressure,then put the clip back on the sensor,and it will snap back on,refill the radiator.If this was at all helpful,please rate,I have a 2000 montana myself,

1999 Saturn SW2. High coolant temp and transaxle warning light comes on intermittant. Auto trans. Runs and sounds fine. Any idea of the cause/cure?


check the tranny fluid. if it's dark brown it and the filter should be changed. they can do this at most oil change places. but it could be as simple as some loose sensor wires. hope this helps.
don't forget to add 50% water and coolant to your resevoir tank of your coolant when it's low.
