You may first check to see if there is antifreeze in the radiator ,may want to check how stong the antifreeze is,you can purchase a antifreeze tester at a walmart or kmart or wherever you like to shop,depending on how cold your climate is the antifreeze should be good to -32 to+250 degrees around there. Can also check to see if your thermistat is functioning properly. You can take it out and run car to see if this cured the problem,if it did youneed a new thermistat,if not also check to see if you coolant fan works when air conditioning is on it should be ok,but you never know without proper tests, can also check water pump to see if it leaks or if the bearings are shot if all else fails take it to a trained person to find the cause.

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.

The track mechanism above the door must be properly and frequently lubricated. If the track is not maintained properly, the motor winding can overheat and the track mechanism will wear out. Once either has occurred, the only thing you can do is replace the mechanism.

The traction control was introduced in 1993. The new software is an optional add-on that was designed as a Saturn exclusive feature.

Saturn radiators don't have caps to check and add fluid to the radiator you open the overflow tank and add it there

I had this problem in my 1993 Saturn SL2. It is probably the fuel injectors. No matter how many cleaners you run through it, you need to take in and get the injectors flushed out. Probably about $70. My car went from dieing about 10 times a trip, to none.
