Here are some troubleshooting tips that may help with your problem, although at first glance I would say your cooling fan is not working. Bear in mind that on your model Saturn the needle is almost in the red before the fan starts to operate. It is a rather disconcerting part of the Saturn's original design.

Burping the cooling system


start the car let it run 4-5 minutes. shut it off , let it set 5 minutes check level, sometimes it takes 10 -15 time to get it to cycle all the air. even a short trip around the block a few times and always making sure to fill the reservoir. the new closed systems are a pain to get all the air out. also remember to have the heater on in full heat position to allow the system to circulate through the whole cooling system.

Is it normal on 94 grand prix 3.1 for the temp. gauge to NOT stay at a steady temp. all the time? mine seems to go up to 210 at a stop light then go back down after i start rollin again, i just had air...


Have you checked your cooling fan to see if it is working propely? Let the car idle and get warm and listen for the fan to kick in (if they are electric) or just watch to see if the fan starts to spin faster if it is the old school type with a clutch. Have you replaced the thermostat? A bad one will let the temp rise since it opens too late and then the temp will drop off. But it won't due this only at a light and it will do it infrequently.

1998 subaru forester overheating heater blows cold air


Any chance of a head gasket leak? Is the coolant level still full? These were known for head gasket issues. Coolant is a closed system and level will not drop unless there is a leak. Make sure there is no air in the system. Replace the radiator cap to make sure that it is operating properly.

I have a 1986 Corvette Coupe. It overheated today when I sat through 5 or 6 lights or 20 minutes.. Smoke came out of the hood. The coolant overflow sprayed out radiator fluid I think. The temp went to 291....


Let it run for about 10-15 minutes after it cools down. After the 10-15 minutes (but don't let it overheat) squeeze the top hose to see it it's hard. If it is, it's probably the thermostat, and the coolant isn't flowing through the engine to the radiator. It's just staying in the engine and getting hot.

Yesterday temp gauge began rising. Went to top. Stopped. Let it cool down. Repeated 4 times on 25 mile drive home. This morning put water in reservoir. Gauge rose quickly to normal & stayed. ...


Probably a cooling fan issue or maybe a stuck thermostat.. change thermostat and check that cooling fans engage..good luck...also when you fill up the resorvoir let it be for a while and check to see if level is down, sometimes it takes a while for water to seep into radiator, i assume you dont have a radiator cap?

Intermitant temperature


Check to make sure your thermostat works right by monitoring the warming up of your engine. With a completely cold engine, start and run the engine for a few minutes, then put your hand on the top radiator hose to monitor if and when it gets warm as the thermostat opens more and more and note the gauge reading( if it works) the top radiator hose should be unbearably hot within 5-8 minutes. If the therm. opens right it should close right aswell, staying open a little while eventhough the radiator may have cooled may be what you are experiencing causing the rapid cooling and is nothing to worry about. The Hose should not get warm very soon after starting the engine. Regarding you gauge, lets take one step at a time, verify proper op. or the therm.
