Dizzy Running HOT? Sticky Speedometer? Shift Lock Release?

Hey everyone I'm a NEW Saturn owner!! I just purcahsed a 1995 SL1 with only 40,000 miles!! Now I have a couple questions that HOPEFULLY someone will be able to assist me with.

1). Where on the temp gauge is "normal"? Every car I've owned has always stayed around the 1/4 mark...and this 95 SL1 runs around 1/2 way and then goes up to 3/4? Finally the fan comes on @ the 3/4 mark, but IS THIS NORMAL???

2). My Speedometer will not work if the car sits for a few hours or when I get in to go to work in the morning after sitting all night.
But after 10-15 minutes, it will slowly start to work.???


3). Most importantly, my Shift Lock Release button has a mind of its own! Sometimes I get in and it will go in & shift (AT) and other times it refuses to unlock!!???

PLEASE HELP SOMEONE!!! THANK YOU SO MUCH!!

God Bless America!

Thanks,
RichStep

1. The fan should kick on a lil after 1/2 mark

3.Make sure you press the brake pedal down almost all the way. it does that to me sometimes if i dont put enough pressure on the brake.

I tried pressing hard, soft, a little combination of the two, and still nothing....maybe the switch on the back of the footpeddle needs to be replaced?

for the temp issue, have you checked the ECTS?

if you have the original in there now, you might try replacing with redesigned brass tip type from Saturn.

Temperature gauage is working fine. EARLY saturns are like that.

the fan turns on at the 3/4 mark. and should turn off at 1/2.

make sure when you are testing this feature your ac is in the OFF positition because it controls fan cycling too.
...
remember that cars are built by robots built by human hands and are prone to failure.
