You'll have to drain the coolant by disconnecting the bottom radiator hose. try and catch the coolant and dispose of it by epa rules (do not pour down the drain or on the ground), then disconnect the top hose.
If it has electric fans remove them. If not remove the fan shroud and you may have to remove the fan depending on space to get radiator out.
Then there'll be a couple (usually 4) mounting bolts holding it in.
Once out replace in the reverse order of taking out and make sure you change the rubber grommets from the old radiator to the new one or replace them.
If you want to flush the block do it before reconnecting bottom hose.
After all together and radiator topped up, start vehicle with radiator cap off and top up as coolant goes through the system until it starts to overflow a little then put cap on.
If is a newer model it may have a coolant bleeder valve which is usually located near/on the thermostat housing which you crack of while vehicle is running till coolant is coming out and not air.
If doesn't have a bleeder valve just check coolant again after you've gone for a drive in it then let it cool down. DO NOT remove cap while the car is hot.

My saturn 1994 s12 is overheating even after i changed the water pump.


How hot is it getting in degrees F? Some electric fans won't even turn on, till around 220 degrees F. Does the fan turn on at all?
As far as overheating, does the coolant recovery reservoir fill up in a hurry?
Sometimes after opening up the cooling system, you get air in the system that may cause temp gage to react.
What about your thermostat? Did you check for coolant flow through the radiator? Another thought might be a head gasket issue, I'd check everything else first.

Removing gearbox


Here's your book info is below...
Most auto parts stores carry Haynes Manuals. You can order them from Haynes if needed. Or...often they are carried in your local library.

I have done Ford and Toyota clutches using these books. Clutch replacement is not hard, just time consuming...And easier if you have a lift.

Note: If like many vehicles, don't forget to replace the engine rear main seal while you have access with the fly wheel off.

You can call Haynes and ask specifically if the book covers the repair you are attempting. I have called them to get more specific wiring diagrams not always provided with the books. Very helpful in providing tech data... I have a Haynes manual for all my vehicles...makes maintenance and repair much easier than researching every I need to do something to my vehicles.

Best of luck finding the information you need...

Where is the thermostat located


Follow the upper radiator hose it will lead you to the thermostat housing which looks like a round steel half ball, remove that and the thermostat is underneath it.

No, the transmission can be removed without doing that. You will need to support the engine.

Transmission filter {spin on} keeps loosening off. Replaced filter twice now still keeps coming loose. Any ideas? 1993 Saturn Wagon 1.9L Engine code 7


First off an engine code 7 would mean it is a DOHC and an SW2, not SW1.

Do you have a dealer filter or aftermarket? The aftermarket have fitment issues (as well as flow issues) and it is best to use a dealer one.

Second, make sure the magnet is not on the filter area where it spins on. That can be removed during the first transmission fluid and filter change. It is only put on from the factory and removed afterward.

My 1997 Saturn SW1 will not shift into 2nd, 3rd,


The cables attach near the back of the transaxle. You may be able to see them under the brake lines. You will probably need to remove the air intake from the throttle body to get good access.
