The system may have an air pocket. Be sure that it has been bled properly and that there is enough coolant.

You never leave a car running, as it will
overheat the Exhaust Converter
When you run out of fuel, you sometimes
ruin the Fuel Pump
It depends on gas to lubricate it,as strange as it sounds
Check fuel pressure & volume at the motor with a gauge

Where does water come out,if at all?It probably is a water pump since you already changed thermostat.Probably takes 15-20 minutes of good running speed to overheat?Greg

My 1998 Saturn SL is not running as smoothly and


Wow, that's a tough one, if you've done all that and it still overheats, I would try replacing the temp sensor, maybe it's faulty. Plus they're pretty cheap( I like fixing things for cheap)
If that's not the problem you could try a lower temperature thermostat, and if that doesn't work I would suspect that something is preventing the coolant from moving through the block effeciently.
Where is the temp sensor?
I had a Buick that the temp sensor was on the top of the block and if the coolant level went down AT ALL it wouldn't cool the sensor and it registered as dangerously hot and give me a heart attack in the process.
As for a tune-up get anew distributor cap, rotor, spark plugs( and spark plug wires if you want it to REALLY be tuned up)
This will probably cost you in the range of 50-100
bucks, but a little preventive medicine goes a long ways.
I had a bad plug wire I thought was an ignition problem and spent 300$ in parts trying to fix.
One day I went "I wonder if it's the plug wire?"
I bought one for 8.88$ and now it runs like a brand new car.
Hopefully one of these things will work.

Just bought a 2000 saturn sl class. runs rough at start-up, runs great when warmed up. changed fuel pump and filter, plugs and wires. no difference. guessing throttle control (choke)


The problem here is the ECTS. Engine Coolant Temp. Sensor. It cost around $12 dollars and takes maybe 5 mins to fix with a 13mm socket. Saturn SL series built before november 2001 have a plastic ECTS. When you buy the new one make sure it has the brass tip as some parts stores still carry the cheap plastic one

1997 saturn sl did some errands, then wouldn't re-start


If it wouldn't start, you have to see if you are missing fuel or fire. Could be a bad sensor, or a bad fuel pump, or if the security light is blinking, a problem with the security system.

1998 Saturn sl 16 twin cam engine overheats.


It could be either the radator or the timeing is too far advanced. Did you put a 50/50 mixture of antifreeze? To much antifreeze vers water will also cause overheating. Non Exhaust.

Overheating


Hi,
If the car is overheating it could be due to a thermostat which is stuck in the closed position, a failed water pump or just a slack belt driving it. I think there will be a "little" tube carrying coolant from the engine to the coolant expansion tank, and if you run the engine with the filler cap removed you should see water coming through that pipe IF the rump is running. A failed water pump will not necessarily leak, it just won't pump the water round the engine.

Always take care when dealing with a pressurised cooling system on an overheating engine - the water may well be above boiling point.

If you run the engine without coolant the cylinder head may well warp and repair bill will be huge.

Hope this helps you a bit. D
