    There is a bulletin for a new type of sealant for the engine cooler. Its purpose is to seal up any leaks in this component. It is a factory bulletin number 02-T-37 date of issue 4-16-2003 I would look in to this, as the sealant will only cost a few dollars as opposed to $300-400.
    As for the pattern failures, Saturn vehicles have new ones every 2-3 months, so it is hard to keep up with them.
    I work on the Powertrain and Emission Controls on Saturn vehicles and see new issues each week, sorry to say.

    Thank You! Could you please tell me where the engine oil cooler is located or is it just an engine cooler and is so what is the difference?
