If a 1996 Saturn SL motor was replaced because a head was blown and oil was leaking into the radiator why is oil still leaking into the radiator?

Sometomes it is hard to get all of the oil out of the cooling system. However the place that replaced the engine should flush the cooling system until it is clean.

Also if your car has an engine oil cooler , it could be the cooler in the radiator and not have been the engine in the first place.

I just replaced the radiator in my 97 SL2 today. What exactly are you asking? Step by step instructions?

The plastic tank on the side of the radiator can be replaced but it would be quicker and cheaper to just install a new radiator.

On my 1992 Saturn the radiator petcock is above the splash guard on the bottom of the radiator on the side closest to the belt. You may want to drain the radiator via the lower hose. The petcock on my Saturn came apart. The retaining clip came off of the back. I did not force it and according to the Saturn forums this happens. I am now trying to see if it can be repaired or replaced and much farther than I wanted to be from completing a quick water pump change.
