Saturn Repair Problems? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
is it running hot when this happens?
are the fans working? have you performed a pressure check?
is it pushing out the overflow drain?
it is...sounds like its boiling over..is it running normal?
how quick and often does it overheat?
I would have a combustion leak test performed you may have a failed head gasket.
is it leaking from the waterpump or the overflow bottle? a pressure check would confirm if it was water pump failure, or you can look at the water pump for signs of coolant or staining
here is a pic of the water pump on the 1.9 saturn
it pushes all the antifreeze out rapidly and overheats...most water pump leaks are slow...I would visually look at the water pump
usually one hour fee at a shop, or they can perform a block leak test, sometimes compression checks for head gaskets are inconclusive
