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?
Make sure nothing is clogged in the block
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.
I had a similar problem and ended up replacing both the lines and the 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.
The lower radiator hose goes from the bottom of the radiator to the engine block. On the engine side there will be a neck that comes off the block and the radiator hose is attached too it. Inside that neck is the thermostat and it can be replaced as a whole unit (the housing neck) or just the thermostat can be removed and replaced.

If the Chevy Celebrity radiator is smaller that the Saturn radiator it might well overheat from not enough cooling capacity. If the Chevy Celebrity radiator is the same size or larger than the Saturn radiator I would think it would not over heat.
Gas is not getting into the carburetor because no Saturn made ever had one.
Saturn radiators don't have caps to check and add fluid to the radiator you open the overflow tank and add it there
It's only radiator cap is on the coolant reservoir.
It's an aluminum radiator with plastic tanks.
The location will more than likely depend on the model of Saturn
radiators are in the front
Stop leak is a temporary fix. I don't recommend it. Tighten the clamps on the hoses going into the raditor.
A 1994 Saturn SC may not even have a radiator drainplug. In order to find out if the 94 Saturn does have a radiator drainplug, a person can take off the lower hose to see, or look in the car's manuel.
my power steering fluid on my 2002 Saturn lw300 started leaking off and on but now i have to put put fluid in everytime i want to drive it.
Between the front bumber and engine
The radiator on a 1995 Saturn is flushed by draining the coolant, refilling the engine with water, and adding a flush. It is allowed to circulate and drain before refilling with coolant.
The radiator is located right behind the grill in the front of the car.
Yes. My 2000 Saturn had a leaking intake gasket, idle about 1900. Also caused misfire in idle and extreme acceleration. Test for leak using brake cleaner on suspected leak. I replaced gasket and all problems fixed.
your heater core is probably made of plastic and has finally cracked like they all do. See the dealer or a professional like myself.
on the inside bottom corner of the radiator, looks like a wing nut.
A 1997 sadder and station wagon radiator is $900. The radiator cost approximately $700. The labor to install the radiator will be approximately $200.
