Pull the passenger side tire, and place a jack stand, remove the plastic apron from under the wheel well, and remove the belt, there's two bolts one's easy one is a pain the neck, once you get it loose, you can remove the bolts with the use of a socket and your fingers, take the altnator out through the bottom/wheel well, remove the alt plug and batter connector at that point, and hook up your wires and weather shield before you reinstall. takes about an hour or so to remove 30 mins to go to autozone and an hour to reinstal depending on your kids driving you nuts

The starter on a 2001 Saturn SL1 is located on the driver's side of the engine. It is just to the left and in front of the alternator/generator.

You replace the valve seals on a 1996 Saturn SL1 by removing all of the hardware to get to the valves, unseating them, cleaning them, and sliding the new valve gaskets on. In order to do this you should consider getting a good Chiltons or other repair manual for your make, model, year, and engine.

On the 1995 Saturn SL1 The oil pressure sending unit is the sensor closest to the alternator. The unit is on the back of the block.

I was able to watch a mechanic change the alternator on my 93 Saturn sl1 and it wasnt pretty. Unlike the easy to change alternators like the dodge stratus (alternator in FRONT, on TOP and in plain sight), the Saturn sl1's alternator is between the motor and the passenger cabin (hidden and underneath). What tools do you use??? A lift for starters. It took my mechanic about 2 hours to do the job and he was swearing and cussing the entire time. I sincerely suggest that you have a professional do the job.

It's like repairing any other vehicle; you must first figure out what's wrong, find out which component has failed and either repair or replace it.

When you here a rattling noise from the engine at idle.

The Neutral safety switch is located on the back of the automatic transmission. it is quite simple to replace. It is probably easier to replace from under the vehicle, but it is accessable from the top if your vehicle is not equipped with ABS.

Check behind the engine underneath, usually towards the right hand side. Below the alternator.
