Saturn does not recommend changing the timing chain at any mileage. If fact I owned a 96 SL2 that went 240,000 miles and never had the timing chain changed. When I later pulled the engine apart I found the timing chain to still be very tight and it showed no signs of ware. Also read this... "It needs to be changed if it has excessive slack in it. Usually this is indicated by a noise that can be heard at idle and felt in the valve cover. It usually doesn't go away with increased speed. If you replace the chain, I'd also recommend changing the tensioner."
Never. The Saturn S series vehicles used a timing chain instead of a timing belt. And the chain is inside the engine, bathed in oil to keep it lubricated. The timing chain should be replaced whenever you rebuild the engine.
You are correct that the SL2 uses a timing chain. However, since it uses a timing chain it does not need to be replaced as does the timing BELT. In general, a timing chain should last the life of the engine.
Depends on miles on the engine - I traded in a 95 SL1 with 206,000 miles with the original timing chain still on the engine. My impression is that under normal circumstances, you should get at least 175,000 miles on a Saturn timing chain.
The Saturn sl2 does not have a timing belt, it has a timing chain. And under most conditions it does not need replacing.
A timing chain should last the life of the engine. Timing chains are INSIDE the engine and as such are constantly oiled. By the time the timing chain and/or tensioning mechanism is worn out, it's about time to rebuild the engine.
Removal of the timing chain cover, timing chain, and head are needed
chain97 Saturn sc2 has a timing chain,its a pain to change though because there is not much clearance....but it can be done!
When you here a rattling noise from the engine at idle.
It has a chain that should last the life of the engine.

The timing chain does not have a recommended change interval and should last for the life of the engine.The timing chain does not have a recommended change interval and should last for the life of the engine.
how do i change timing chain on 95 saturnsc1 1.9 sohc
The V6 Saturn used a timing belt. The 4 cylinder's used a timing chain.
It has a timing chain
It has a timing chain.
All Saturn 4 cylinder engines have an internal timing chain. All Saturn V6 engines have a timing belt.
it has a timing chain, which should be towards the bottom of the engine, and it has a drive belt, which is external and in the front.
You should always replace the timing chain, tensioners and sprockets whenever you rebuild the engine.
The S series Saturn does not use a timing belt; all four cylinder Saturn's use a timing chain.
Yes, it uses an internal timing "CHAIN", not a belt. The timing chain should last until the engine needs to be rebuilt.
Always replace the timing chain, sprockets and tensioner rails whenever you remove the head.
It has a timing chain.
