96 saturn getting hot but has water then doesnt start back up

It's possible that either your crank position sensor is cracked from the heat and won't allow the car to restart and/or your thermostat has failed in the closed or partially closed position. Also the Engine Coolant Temp sensor is likely cracked because it is plastic. It's a $10 part and easily replaceable. Replacement of the ECTS first, then thermostat, and then CPS in that order should have you running again.

98 Saturn SL overheating

Change the thermostat for the heating problems. As for the hard to start when hot, check your air filter. Change your fuel filter and check the fuel pressure. Check your engine ground connection. Check the connections in your ignition system. Change your idle control sensor. Could be any one or combination of the above.

1996 sl1 water pump went out...replaced then it super overheated....thermostat must have stuck....then it worked fine except now it won't start cold I have to push start it. Then it is hard to start on...

Be sure your coolant level is OK first. When a water pump or other cooling system part is replaced air blocks in the system are not uncommon. If the engine overheated, this could have fried the coolant temp. sensor (ECT) causing the hard starting. (It might think the  engines always hot) ECT are pretty cheap. Just replace it and see what happens.
