No, that's typical. Blueprinting the motor will fix it.. if you are driving that car you probably don't have that kind of money,so another thing you can do is use more expensive gas. ( higher octane gas)

Hi!!

Probably your coolant level is low. With motor off and cool, check coolant level. if low, fill it to the MAX COLD mark. DO NOT OVERFILL.

98 saturn SL2, P0172 and misfire dtc's, jerks when accelerating after warmed up. Coolant looked a little frothy but doesn't seem to need coolant added(not consuming coolant)Oil looks good. Problem started...


Possible blown head gasket. Big problem . Have that checked immediately by a engine coolant pressure leak-down test. You can lose your engine and pronto! Small amount of coolant possible passing into crankcase or/and the cylinders.

98 Saturn Sl2 overheat


If it overheated without being low on coolant the first time you may have a themostat sticking. But I would start with a check of all the hoses for cracks or loose clamps. Also check leakage at the front of the motor from the water pump. It's hidden behind the a/c compressor but you should see splash marks on the hood if it's leaking there. For good info on how to fix it yourself try www.saturnfans.com. There are a lot of good tech tip articles for the S series cars. I lost a water pump pulley at about 90,000 overheated five times getting home. The car now has 230,000 on it and still going strong.
