Saturn Repair Problems? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello and thank you for your question,If you run a cooling system pressure test will the system hold pressure and are you seeing any external leaks?
I would start with performing a cooling system pressure test and see if the system will hold pressure. If you find it dose not and you net seeing any external leaks then the engine has to be burning the coolant. The next steps would be to perform a engine block test. This is a simple test to perform which will check the cooling system for any signs of Hydro-carbons (exhaust) in the cooling system . You can pick up a block test kit any any auto part store . You can have a seeping head gasket with out having an over heating issue as well. See the link below for running a block test. Check these things and post back with the results and we can work from there.http://www.blockchek.com/instructions.htm
