Are you sure it's not a squeeze clamp? Most likely it is not leaking from the clamp. Either the hose has a whole right next to the clamped area or the heater core is leaking.

Disconnect both heater hoses going into the firer wall (heater core) you can go to auto parts and get a double end hose connector and two hose clamps, connect both hoses together and clamp then, that call by-passing heater core, easy to do.Good luck

As both hoses from the heater core are hot, there is no need to replace the heater core.
The problem will be in the heater control under the dash. I have no experience with Saturn, but I am responding to your problem so as not to remove the heater core.. That would be wasted time and money. The heater, A/C mixture control is the problem.
Someone else will need to guide you through the rest of the way.
Sorry i could not lead you all the way through.

What fuse is for the Air conditioning? I have a 96 Saturn SL1. My AC is blowing hot air. My husband charged it, but to no avail. The pressure increased a little.

It sounds like vacuum is not getting to the vent, heat and A/C controls. Find the vacuum can. It may be under the hood on one of the inner fenders. The "one-way" check valve is usually located in the line and close to the can, make sure it works properly. The valve could be the very thing that's causing the problem. Trace the lines back to the vacuum block at the intake manifold or fire-wall, and also back to where the line goes thru the fire-wall. Check the can for leaks or obvious holes. They used to be just a plain metal can, but it could be a plastic ball. Check the lines as you go, for breaks and rub-thru's. Move the controls thru all settings and listen for vent door movement. Worst case is a bad vacuum motor or air flow position selector switch, and/or a faulty Blend Door Actuator. If you have been driving around with the Temperature knob or control set at the same spot for months, move it from fully cold to fully hot several times and wait for the air temperature to change each time. This will help reset the blend door and vacuum control system. Hope this helps... Let me know what you find.

How to fix the heat system in a 97 Saturn is only giving cool-cold air and i just replaced the thermostat and flushed the radiator. What do you think the problem may be?

Maybe the heater core is plugged or perhaps you have an air pocket in the cooling system. Try and bleed the cooling system once more.
