    http://www.parts.com/schematics/mechanical/V2P040.gif image # 38 your saturn has a oil cooler but I cant see where it goes possible to the radiator and if it does it could leak into the radiator and you can find a repair shop to check this here http://repairpal.com/directory?address=43560&car_brand_names=Saturn
