Question about 1999 Saturn SL

1 Answer

Hi, i have a 99 saturn sl and it is having an over heating problem. the water will not stay in the reservoir and it does not have any leaks. the water is not circulating and the car is getting very very hot. the fan also does not turn on and i put a new fan motor in the car. the fuse box is not turning the fan on. so im thinking it is electrical..what do you believe it is?

99 saturn loud revving sound in engine


Start the car and use a spray bottle to spray a bunch of water mist around the top back of the engine where the intake meets the head. If it starts to die you have an intake manifold leak. It\'s kind of a pain to change, but not really technical. Also, clean your throttle body and clean the idle air controller (IAC). Alos consider replacing the Throttle position sensor (TPS). Both are located on the back of the throttle body.

Water temp red light on seems like gettting water


Probably have a coolant leak somewhere. That light means the coolant reservoir is empty/low. Have your cooling system pressure tested to find the leak.

I have a 1998 Saturn. The reservoir often leaks water/antifreeze and light comes on to indicate. I have had water pump as well as reservoir replaced. Doesn't leak everday but still leaks. WHat is this?...


you need to find that leak, is the leak visible? if its not from radiator or the reservoir, the only other place I could think you can lose water is the head gasket. It happens to high miles and hard driver. 100k miles would likely be a head gasket. Leaking head gasket will also cause the engine temperature to rise and run super hot. antifreeze will leak through the head gasket down to your oil pan mixing oil and water. Check your oil by pulling the dip stick and see if you have oil mix with water; it will have a slimy looking colors, oil is light color and it should never be black. if it black than change your oil and inspect it afterward when the car has been running for while. when engine really hot cause the heat to effect the starter not to engage or start or engine is too hot to run. repairing head gasket could run anywere from 500-800 bucks.

1999 saturn sl1 wagon has overheating problem. Had a leak in the reservoir so I replaced that. During that time had added stop leak several times. Reservoir is now new, but still losing water at speeds...


If you cant see any water coming out anywhere then the only choice is a blown head gasket.

The reason the resorvior had a leak was the pressure from the engine got into the coolant and blew up the reservior bottle. This is a real common problem with saturns.

Get the car inspected. A simple test a a reapir shop will confirm this.

Be sure to flush all the stop leak out or it will clog the heater core up and the heater will not work.
