What is a timing cover and gasket?
Typically, "timing cover and gasket" refers to timing chain (vice timing belt) equipped vehicles. Timing chains need oil from the engine for lubrication. To make this happen, there is an opening between the timing chain area and the valve camshaft area. The oil the flows into the timing chain area, then down into the oil pan. In order to keep the oil from spraying all over the rest of the engine (and having the engine break down from oil starvation), a metal 'timing cover' is installed over the timing chain and sprockets. Then, a 'gasket,' made of a soft, oil resistant material, goes between the timing chain cover and the engine block to prevent any leaks. The timing cover is bolted to the engine block and the bolts tightened to a specified torque.

How do you replace the oil pump on a 1996 Saturn SC1?
The oil pump is located in the timing chain cover. If you are going to replace the oil pump, it is strongly recommended that you purchase a new timing chain also. Saturn sells a kit which includes both the chain and the oil pump. Once you have removed the timing chain cover, the oil pump can be removed using a number 30 Torx driver.

Do you have to remove timing chain cover to replace head gasket?
Since the Saturn uses an overhead cam, not only do you need to remove the timing chain cover, you also need to remove the timing chain if you're planning to replace the head gasket. Note that head gaskets typically fail when the engine has overheated and the head warps slightly. ALWAYS verify that the head is flat and properly surfaced before replacing a head gasket. It's a relatively inexpensive procedure at most automotive machine shops. Note that they will probably want to do the valves "while you have the head off", and depending on the condition of the engine, that might not be a bad idea.
