There could be air in the system and a leak that will eventually cause an overheat condition.

The recovery tank for the antifreeze has a sensor in it to tell when the fluid is low.

Temp lights coming on but temperature control is fine


Is the temp gauge not moving at all even after driving the car ?
And have you checked the coolant level in the radiator and the overflow tank ?

The 'High Engine Coolant Temperature/Automatic Transaxle Fluid Temperature and Low Coolant Level' Warning light is FLASHING. According to owner handbook the coolant is low. I added coolant. Fluids...


Look on the back of the engine for antifreeze-either by number 1-2 cylinder or back by the brake booster. It is a know problem with Saturn engines, leaking by the rear intake. Check under the surge tank, they crack and leak too-check the bottom of the water pump for leaks, it has a weep hole that, if the seal inside is broken, will leak. you need to look for symptoms and evidence of leaks-if there is no obvious leaks from hoses, or outside the engine anywhere, it may be a head gasket-check your oil for a milky texture, or greyish color. check the bottom of the surge tank for oily residue, and look for smoke coming from the tailpipe.

Runnin thru antifreeze. is there a certain kind of antifreezze to use on yhe saturn sl


The 2000 Saturn SL came from the factory with Dex-Cool antifreeze (The Pink stuff) I don't know what your engine has in it now...it may have been changed.

If your car is "runnin thru antifreeze", the thing you should be concerned the most with is WHERE is the antifreeze going? If your engine and cooling system is working properly, you should not have to add any antifreeze at all. Adding antifreeze and not finding out and repairing the reason it was low, is a good way to totally destroy an engine.

Engine Coolant Light blinks constantly.


you put transmission fluid in your radiator? You should have antifreeze in your radiator. You could have a bad thermostat that's causing the car to over heat. Does your temp gauge read a high temperature?

Replaced water pump, alternator, radiator, crank sensor and no coolant leaks and car has antifreeze, but why is low coolant dashboard indicator light keep flashing on 97 saturn sl2


Inside the coolant reserve tank there is a sensor for coolant level.


Over time,this sensor can get stick.


Inspect the coolant reserve tank for crack or leak.

Locate the coolant level switch/sensor and soak it in clean warm water.

Make sure it's free to move up and down the float path.

Top off the coolant tank with coolant only.

97 saturn sl2 temp light flashing and low coolant light flashing what could be the problem ? coolant is full and the heat works.


If the temp gauge is reading normal, the lights are flashing, and the coolant level is full, the level sensor in the coolant bottle is the problem. I'm a service consultant for a Saturn dealer and I've run across this many times.
