09 Saturn outlook overheating
Okay here is my issue. I have an 09 Saturn Outlook. 2wd. XE. I had an issue with the car overheating. I found out a bad water pump. I changed out water pump and thermostat. New coolant. New oil. New thermostat which I bought from GM. New water pump.
My wife tell me it's overheating again yesterday. I find a severed high pressure hose coming from the housing for the thermostat. Replaced that last night. Now when you drive it, it hovers around 210 degrees. And then slowly creeps up. Then Drops back to 210. Fans work. And now I have no idea what's going on. The fan even keep running when I turn car off because it's running hot.
Mileage is 132250
Driving on side street with AC running and blowing cold. Nothing blocking the fans and the engine is very clean.

Please help

Re: 09 Saturn outlook overheating
Would a really dirty air filter cause overheating down there in Texas ? When was it last inspected/replaced ?

My temp goes to 100 and hovers there even when going cross-country at approx. 118kph, with air temps 27-32c

Or referencing, "... I find a severed high pressure hose coming from the housing for the thermostat..." after you replaced the thermostat. A time when ya would likely spot the damaged hose !?
Are you sure someone in your family does not want ya to buy another vehicle vs the outlook ;)

good luck

Re: 09 Saturn outlook overheating
Yea not the air filter. It's only 4 months old. I did however have to replace the high pressure hose coming off the thermostat which was easy. And then also changed out the engine coolent temp sensor. And ever since then it's been running like a champ.
