Default 1995 Saturn SC1 Over Heating

I have a 1995 Saturn SC1 and it is over heating. I have replaced water pump, thermostat,coolant temp sensor,temp sender and it still overheats. The radiator fan is working. I do not know what else to do. Please help.

Pressure cap? They are cheap at the autoparts store.
Presumably by overheating, you have loss of coolant, and not just a gage reading in the red zone?
Or, have you checked to see if a steady stream of coolant is returning to the reservoir by looking at the small 'window' or cutout in the plastic reservoir?
Blockage would cause a major overheat situation.

Showing signs of a blown head gasket?

Could just be that it needs a new radiator, more so if it has never been replaced.

More details of when it gets hot, how long it runs before it does, etc might help

Check the line going into your expansion tank. If it is not a steady stream flowing continuously, you have likely cracked your cylinder head of head gasket.

Before throwing money at the car, run test it with the cap off. If it heats up and bubbles are continuously in the coolant, you have an expensive repair ahead of you.

Run a leakdown test as well as a compression test.

A similar thread ended badly for another user, on his 2nd Gen SOHC, which was a blown head gasket.
