Found cause of problem.....trans 95-02 will work ...problem is that they make 2 models for each year one for single overhead cam one for double.Thats why when I used the pcm from the doner car that the trans shifted and worked but the engine ran rough because pcm was sending info for single overhead engine!Feel so stupid but learned valuable lesson for future.Also that the pcms for saturn still need to be flashed,when changing them.I thought that I would leave this info in case any one else encounters this problem....Cause it sure had me baffled.

My daughter's SC1 was over heating. After trouble shooting, I found it was a faulty temperature sending unit causing the problem. As it turns out the factory sending unit has the probe made of plastic which was cracked thus giving a false reading.

Or, you can get the free little Autozone booklet "What It Means When Your Check Engine Light Comes On" and the free "key" to insert in your diagnostic connector and do it yourself.

I am the proud owner of a 1997 4dr SL. I have replace the thermostate, radiator, water pump, and heater coil. Still, I overheat per the gauge 3 or 4 times in a 25 mile stretch. The gauge reads in the read a while and then theres some noise and it cools down. I also do not have heat. Yes, again I have change the thermostate twice. I am good on my antifreez. I am out of ideas.PLEASE HELP.

Water pump is easy...work on it through the pass front wheel well...comes off with 5 bolts...do not need to remove timing chain cover...just the belt & belt tensioner...no special techniques or tools...USE A TORQUE WRENCH...good Luck
#20 of 20 Saturn doesn't like the oil I'm feeding it. It comes back up.
Dec 20, 2009 (3:08 pm)
My son has a 1998 saturn sl. I went' to check the oil in it and it needed about 11/2 Qts. I poured the oil into the oil fill and it won't go down. It stays in top end. Can the oil ports be plugged? It has sat for a day and a half and hasn't changed. He has been having problems with the valve cover gasket leaking,could it be building up pressure because it won't drain to the oil pan. Duh!!!
I haven't seen this before but I'm no mechanic. Please help !!!! I would appreciate it very much. Thanks Tim
