There are a few companies that claim to have a procedure to turn a crank while it's still in the engine. In general, they don't work.

What is a function of the clutch in the vehicle?

The purpose of a clutch on a vehicle is to disconnect the drive of the engine from the gearbox (this would be required when the vehicle is stationary or to change gear). While the engine is running the crankshaft is continually turning, It is the crankshaft that turns the gearbox and via the gearbox the road wheels. Obviously there are times when the engine is running but drive is not required, The clutch is the mechanism by which this is achieved.

What do you do when you get engine code340 and 341 for camshaft position sensor when there is no such thing on a 1998 Saturn SL2?

The 1998 Saturn SL2 will show a code 340 and 341 for a camshaft position sensor because this part is also considered the crankshaft position sensor on the Saturn. The location of the crankshaft position sensor is behind the alternator on a 1998 Saturn SL2. Both crankshaft and camshaft are the same thing This vehicle is not equipped with a camshaft position sensor. Saturn is the only manufacture that uses a auto pulse generated inside the ignition control module in conjunction with the pulse received from the crankshaft position sensor to determine ignition and injection timing. If you have a code for camshaft position sensor the issue is with the pulse generator in the ignition control module.

Saturn engine interchangibility.yes, by all means you can, the only thing is have to match the ignition modules to the crankshaft. i.e. use a 93 module for the 93 crank and a 91-92 module for a 91-92 crank. there is a timing difference built in to the module for the crankshaft notches. that's about it. everything else will work.

Can a car accident cause crankshaft problems?

CRANKSHAFT? Very unlikely. The crankshaft is an integral part of, and contained entirely within, the engine. The engine would have to have been virtually destroyed in order to damage it.However - If you mean to ask about the DRIVESHAFT - the rotating shaft under the vehicle that transfers power from the transmission to the rear wheels - yes it is entirely possible that a driveshaft or its component parts could be damaged in a severe accident.

How do you replace crankshaft bearings?

In general, this job would be best done with the engine removed from vehicle. Once the engine is removed, mount the engine on an engine stand and diassemble the front and lower half of engine until the crankshaft is exposed. Once the crankshaft is removed, have it inspected at a qualified machine shop to determine if it needs to be reground or just polished. Replace crankshaft with new bearings of correct dimensions. Going this deep into the engine, you may want to consider rebuilding the complete engine. A shop manual for that vehicle would be a must if you intend on tackling this job your self. A complete set of tools and at least some knowledge about rebuilding an engine would be necessary otherwise your time and money would be wasted.
