Question about 2002 Saturn L-Series

1 Answer

There are two problems that exist with my saturn. One is the floor board is soaked from time to time with some type of liquid. The second is that it seems to be leaking coolant from underneath the engine/radiator somewhere...any ideas?

Well it sounds like your heater core is leaking coolant into the interior. If the carpet is slippery and stinky that is what it is. This would also explain the missing coolant in the radiator.

This is not an owner serviceable item, you will need someone familiar with removal and replacement of heater cores in general and saturns in particular. If you have an unlimited budget, try a dealer, otherwise call around to repair shops with radiator and/or airconditioner service on their sign or in their phone book ad. Also you will need to have the carpet removed, cleaned, and reinstalled when you are done. When this happened on my 01LW, I found a car radio install shop to be the cheapest for the carpet cleaning service.

My 2003 Saturn Ion driverside floor board stay soaking wet


Hi Linda , you mite have a windshield leak ! You could possibly look under the dash an see if there is a water stain coming down the metal body inside ! If it were the passenger side I'd say you had a heater core leak .You don't have any unusual odors do you ? Like anti freeze ? Or does the windshield fog up when on defroster ?

FLOOR MOUNTED SHIFTER STUCK IN PARK

Publication Date: January 13, 2006

LINCOLN: 2005-2006 Navigator

ISSUE: Some 2005-2006 Navigators may exhibit the floor shifter stuck in Park due to an electrical system concern or by damage from liquid intrusion.
ACTION: Follow the latest online Workshop Manual diagnostics in section 307-05. If diagnostics lead to an inoperative brake shift interlock circuit board which may have been damaged due to liquid intrusion. The brake shift interlock circuit board is located on the bezel. Replace only the bezel assembly, current service parts contain all liquid diverter design changes. Do not replace the entire shifter assembly.

NOTE: DAMAGED CAUSED BY LIQUID INTRUSION IS NOT COVERED UNDER THE NEW VEHICLE LIMITED WARRANTY.

What does a CO2 sensor look like on a 2003 4 Cylinder Saturn Vue and how do you replace it?


I think you are looking for an O2 (oxygen) sensor. It looks sort of like a spark plug, but it has a low voltage wire permanently attached to it, often with a latching-type connector with a few inches. It's mounted on the exhaust pipe between the manifold and the catalytic converter, or right on the exhaust manifold. Some models have another one at the outlet of the catalytic converter.

When I need to replace one, I soak the threads with Liquid Wrench the day before, and I take the car for a drive to heat up the Liquid Wrench (your regular commute or an errand run will do the trick). When I return, I add some more Liquid Wrench. The old sensor generally comes out without a lot of trouble with this treatment. The hardest part may be getting a wrench (metric) on it with enough space to turn. Before you remove the sensor, study the connector to see how the plastic latch unlocks. If you use an after-market replacement designed to splice into the original wire, be sure to use a crimp-type splice rated for high temperature environments. "Twist and tape" is not reliable enough for this task.

Water on Drivers side Saturn SC2


Is it antifreeeze from heater core or heater core hose leak?  Is the leak pure water, or maybe something else?
Put it in the garage again overnight with an old white towel in the drivers foot well, best if you can find a way to stretch it from drivers seat forwar to firewall and keep it off of floor mat.  Check it before you go to bed,  then in the morning if no leak found yet.  see if the color/location of the spot helps you identify the source.  I think the heater core is under the dash center.  Anti freeze is green/yellow or orange.
good luck
