Question about 1998 Saturn SL

1 Answer

My 1998 Saturn SL2 is leaking coolant what is causing the problem? I have poured coolant into the compartment that the manual said to, this Saturn has 140,000 miles on it. The meter reads cool when I put the coolant in and when it gets low the meter starts to go to the middle and evenually the light will come on to put more coolant in the compartment. Has anyone experienced this situation please let me know. I have put coolant in it for two days and I do not like this situation since I do travel a lot.

It could be one of the hoses leaking. with your car running look under the front and see where it is coming from. The top/bottom hose coming off the radiator or MAYBE from the water pump

My 1998 Saturn sl2 is constantly leaking oil from the valve cover, what is the best fix.


You have to apply a dab of RTV sealant where the timing chain assembly meets the cylinder head. And you have to be very careful when tightening the valve cover bolts. Overtightening causes leaks.

1996 Saturn sl2 coolant problem I can't figure out how I'm losing coolant no leak engine runs hot but when I shut car off and let cool coolant gone just about thermostat replaced


Blown head gasket and/or cracked head, cracked or leaking intake manifold. Since the car has run hot, the headgasket is probably damaged either way. On a 4 cylinder engine you are looking at $900 to 1200 range...v6 add another $3 to 400. Possibly more depending on what caused the failure in the first place.

Coolant surge tank on my 93 saturn SL2 has a pine hole leak on the inside seam which is leaking out coolant and causing overheating. It is a plastic tank. Is the tank by itself replaceable? I have sealed...


The tank should be easily available at any auto wrecking/used auto parts locations.
Otherwise,do you have a soldering gun or soldering iron?
Clean off the epoxy and plastic weld the tank with your soldering gun.Just melt the plastic back together carefully.
Other plastic can be added into the weld if needed.

My 1998 saturn sl2 overheated temp gauge was only on half mark and its only 9 degrees outside heater never warmed up


Check your coolant level. Most causes of no heat are low coolant levels or blocked heater cores. If it overheated and has no heat I'll beat its a low coolant level. Check for leaks. Just because the gauge didn't go all the way up doesn't mean much. Those cars trap air in the cooling systems when the level gets low. That will cause those problems. Check for leaks and if a repair is made I also recommend a termistat.

Code reads number 3 cylinder misfire on my 98 saturn sl2. Changed the plugs and wires. Whats my next move?


I'm having a similar problem with my 2001 Saturn SL-2. My mechanic says this is due to a manufacturing defect in the cylinder casting. He says my cylinder looks like swiss cheese. If is affecting my fuel flow and, caused a small coolant leak into the head gasket. The only cure is to purchase a brand new head cylinder and replace. Estimated cost; $1,600.

1998 Saturn SL2 engine light


Possible Causes
The following are malfunctions that could cause a rich condition:
^ Fuel pressure too high. Perform fuel pressure test.
^ Leaking fuel injector(s). - Perform pressure leak down test.
^ Vacuum leak around the MAP sensor grommet.
^ Oxygen sensor contamination.
^ Restricted exhaust or air intake.
^ Fuel Vapor Canister saturated with fuel.

IMPORTANT:
If the front oxygen reading voltage is above 600 mV and the rear HO2S is above 600 mV all the time, the O2 sensors are probably not
at fault.

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.
