Question about 1998 Saturn SL
Could be a vacuum leak that is only apparent when the car is up to temperature. Or a sensor (O2, MAP/MAF etc.) that is only used after the engine control system goes into closed loop mode. Or a defective temperature sensor that makes the ECU believe the engine is still cold, and so supplies the wrong air/fuel ratio.

SOURCE: 2000 lincoln ls cracked head???
Previous to 2000 Ford had a cylinder head gasket problem with some of the v6 engines failing at two cylinders at opposite corners of engine (don't know what engineyou have) They supposedly corrected that, but I'm not sure how well the correction worked. I doubt if the cylinder head is cracked but if some amount of compression is getting into cooling system it's possible that it may give you strange sensor readings. When testing, it's also possible that some air escaped and returned everything to "normal" ('till it builds up again).
At this point, I would get a second opinion on this. As well as a comprehensive computer scan, have someone do a radiator hydrocarbon test...that will reveal any compression in cooling system from gasket or any other source. (Don't mention that it was checked before, just say what originally happened so objective testing will be done.)

I suspect the EGR got stuck closed, u will need to put around 30 miles on the car before the light will return if the problem is still present..
