I am assuming you already have the timing chain off the vehicle, and you are looking for the timing marks. if not, please note, there is no manual adjustment on the timing chain. I have included a picture of the correct timing placement on my website under Timing Chain. I hope this helps you.

Does a 2002 Saturn sl2 have a timing chain or belt?

The DOHC SL2 has a timing chain.

Does your Saturn sl2 have a timing belt or a timing chain?

Timing chain

When do you need to change the timing chain of your 2001 Saturn sl2?

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.

Dose the 1999 Saturn sl2 have a timing belt or timing chain?

Timing chain

How do you change the timing belt on a Saturn sl2?

The Saturn sl2 does not have a timing belt, it has a timing chain. And under most conditions it does not need replacing.

How does the timing belt work on a Saturn SL2?

It does not work because it has a timing chain instead.

Does a 1994 Saturn SL2 have a timing belt or timing chain?

The 4 cylinder Saturn's all had timing chains.

When does your Saturn sl2 timing chain need to be replaced?

Timing BELTS are outside the engine, run dry, and have no external lubrication. Timing BELTS should be replaced according to the manufacturers schedule. But the SL2 is not equipped with a timing belt, it uses a timing chain. Timing chains are internal, well lubricated, and designed to last as long as the rest of the engine. You shouldn't need to replace the timing chain until you rebuild the engine.

Where is the timing chain located on a 1998 Saturn sl2?

It's under the front housing. You need to take the front pulley and everything that's in the way, THEN you can get to the timing chain.

Is there an adjustment that can be made easily if the timing chain is rubbing on the upper chain guard of a 1998 Saturn SL2 1.9L?

No. There is no adjustment. The timing chain tensioner is an oil pressure driven device that adjusts the chain tension as needed. It is located on the pivot guide behind the timing chain cover.

How do you fix a timing chain belt on a 92 Saturn SL2 and how do you know if you have a bent valve?

No such thing as a timing chain belt. It is either a belt or chain. Replace the belt according to the schedule in your owner's manual. If it breaks and your engine is an interference engine, you will 95% of the time have damage. You will know the extent of the damage when the engine is torn down. The 1992 SL2 has a timing chain. Mine has 240,000 miles on it and is still running fine.

What is the function of the timing chain in a Saturn Sl2?

the chain keeps the camshaft/valves in time with the crankshaft in order for combustion to take place

Removing the timing chain on a Saturn sl2?

you have to remove the valve cover , the oil pan and the front timing cover. Then line up all the timing marks and remove the tensioners and guides then remove the cam gears and the chain

How do you set cam timing on a SL2 dohc Saturn?

timing cannot be altered. It is done by the PCM I think he/she meant the timing marks for the chain. No car today can have the time adjusted mechanically. You need a book for that. Go to the library if you don't find it here. in the internet

Is water pump connected to timing belt on 1997 Saturn sl2 1.9 dohc?

No, there is no timing belt on any of the the 4 cylinder Saturns, they all use an internal timing chain.

When does timing chain on a 2001 Saturn SL2 need to be changed?

Unless you have other problems, you should only need to change the timing chain whenever you rebuild the engine or remove the head or have other needs to take the front off the engine.

How do you change a timing chain in a 1997 Saturn SL2?

This proceedure is covered in the chiltons Saturn book available at auto zone and ect.

How do you change head on motor for 93' Saturn Sl2?

Get a service manual. Removal of the timing chain cover and head is needed first.

When should a timing belt on a 2002 Saturn SL2 be replaced?

That would be never. All s-series have timing chains. (chain will stretch and get noisy if car oil not checked and changed on regular basis)

When do you replace a timing chain on a 2002 Saturn SL2?

A timing chain typically doesn't need to be replaced until you tear down the engine for a rebuild. Unlike a timing belt, which is operated dry, the timing belt is in an oil bath and will last much longer. If your engine needs a valve job, rings, oil pump or any other components that require a "tear-down", that would be the right time to replace the timing chain, sprockets and chain tensioning rails.

Does a timing chain ever need replacement on a 95 Saturn SL2?

I've never heard of a timing chain that needed replacing unless there was a serious problem with the engine... I could be wrong. Timing chains do on occasion need replacement. But the difference in a chain and a belt, is that the chain will give you warning of it's immanent failure. The will become noisy, and the engine may become hard to time. Normally a chain will last 150,000-200,000 miles, or even more.

When should you change the timing chain on your 1993 sl2?

There is no scheduled maintenance on replacing the chain. It will normally last until the engine needs an overhaul. However if it starts making noise, and you cannot keep the engine timed, the chain may need replacing.

When to change timing belts in Saturn sl2?

The SL2 series used a 4 cylinder, dual overhead cam engine with a timing CHAIN that did not need replacing until the head was removed. You DO, however, need to properly maintain the serpentine belt, which drives the alternator, power steering, AC, and water pump. Don't let THAT belt break, since the engine will overheat quickly and can damage the head gasket. But... you don't need to worry about the timing belt, since there isn't one. The timing chain is INTERNAL, and is constantly lubricated, making it last much longer than a timing belt.

How do you adjust the timing chain tension on a 1998 Saturn SL2?

you can't : On the '97 Twin cam engine the cam chain tensioner depends on oil pressure. I had a problem that with 200,000 miles the chain had stretched farther than the tensioner could handle and had to replace the cam chain.

At how many miles should you change a 2002 Saturn timing chain?

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."
