"engine runs hot & engine oil mixed with coolant reservoir (replace cylinder head assembly)" that's what it states on service bulletin 96-T-65B. From what I've read this happens a lot on 91-97 Saturns. our Saturn started off by having chocolate milkshake colored foamy-ness in the coolant reservoir (it's had that since we got it 2 years ago so not sure how long it's had this), then it over heated, then the low coolant & coolant temp lights started flashing, then the 2nd spark plug blew out 3 times now! If Saturn knows about this why have they not recalled the cylinder head???
