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.
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.
In the alternator Needs new Alternator if it's bad
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.
timing for spark plug wires for saturn sl1 1996
How can I replace the headlamp on a 2000 Saturn SL1
sounds like you need a new alternator or have a grounding issue somewhere
Remove transmission oil pan
Check behind the engine underneath, usually towards the right hand side. Below the alternator.
The oil pressure sending unit is located on the back of the block. it is the sensor located closest to the alternator.
exact fit fir the sohc engine is 93 or 94 only
The speed sensor on a 1999 Saturn SL1 is under the transmission. It is below the fittings for the transmission cooler lines.
When you here a rattling noise from the engine at idle.
Saturns have optional 15" tires; so, as long as they are both the same diameter, yes.
yes that is my question
On or the other not both
they are located behind radiator and intake muffler. there are a couple of bolts and they come out in sets of 2
My son's 1999 Salvaged/total Saturn SL1 was rebuilt using many engine and body parts from 1995-1999 Saturn SL1 and SL2 cars, I believe it will work fine. I do not recommend before 1995 or 2000 or later models. I do not recommend SL2 either. I am not the expert but most of my son's engine is not 1999 SL1. Good luck!
What Year is it?
