Your fan moter is pulling to many amps.What this means is when your fan kicks on the power load is so high its burning the points in the relay. Replace the fan moter!

Is the motor in this 1993 Saturn slY going to overheat by using a radiator out of a Chevy Celebrity?

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.

On a 1994 Saturn SC2 why would the cooling fan not come on unless you hook it up direct if you just changed the coolant temperature sensor?

Have you checked the cooling fan relay? ? This is the child's wooden block size relay installed in the fuse/relay box in under the hood. If it is bad the fan will not come on even if all the other sensors and components of the system are functioning. Also, This cooling fan relay draws a lot of amperage which causes it to heat up. On my '92 SC2, I have learned that the contacts of the relay have become so hot from the high current they carry that the fuse box sockets overheat and deform. It became necessary for me to open up the upper and lower halves of the fuse box and install new conductors to restore good contact with the relay pins. If you find that your cooling fan relay pins are discolored and the plastic housing is slightly deformed around the pins, you are likely haveing a similar problem. For a while I was able to just slightly twist the pins of a new relay using a pair pliers so that they would make tighter contact in the deformed sockets of the relay box. Hope this helps, JB
