Heater core? do you have heat? is there coolant inside on the passenger floor? this 'seam' you are referring to, is it on the engine or on the firewall?

The low coolant sensor uses the coolant to close the circuit, if the coolant if full you could have a problem in the wiring.
Some cars will cut power to the A/C if the coolant is low, the A/C system add heat to the system. Repair the coolant sensor problem and the A/C problem should go away.

A very common problem with this year of Saturn's is a bad engine coolant temp sensor. The good news is that this part only cost about 20 dollars. It's located on the top right of the head. I would take your car to Schuck's or Autozone or somewhere like that and scan you car, see if cam circuit fault comes up, if it does it is the engine coolant temp sensor.

From the looks of it this is a very common problem with the 2002-2003 saturn vue. There was a Technical Service Bulletin from saturn about the problem, which means it happens alot but not quite enough to warrant a recall.

You need to replace your thermostat and it is a pain to do, the dealership will charge you about 2 hours flat rate to put it in.

Its not a huge deal to get it replaced right away, but the computer depends on the vehicle being a certain temperature and if it isn't then your performance/emissions will suffer.
