Having problems with your 1997 Saturn SL ?
My 1997 Saturn sl2 has no heat. Where do I start?
Assuming the rest of the car is operating normally either your heater core is bad or the little door operated by the temp control is stuck open. Both issues are in the heater box, just above the passenger foot well. You may want to take a search on youtube.com as pulling a dash assembly is a pain in the a** and you may want to just live with it as opposed to going through that problem. Alternatively you could call around to some repair shops which do car air conditioning and get a price to have them replace the core. When you pull 2 or 3 dash boards out every week you get good at it and know the tricks.
