You are in the Saturn S Series section. But beyond that I suspect you have a cracked head.

This link will take you to the L Series side. http://www.saturnfans.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=21

Welcome to the Board.

Most likely your oil cooler is leaking. It will need to be repalced along with every "rubber" component in the cooling system. IE hoses, waterpump, t-stat. Also the system will need a very good system flush or 5 to get the oil out.
