You don't. In its time, one of the competitive advantages of the Saturn S-Series was that it doesn't have a timing belt. It has a timing chain. It can last several hundred thousand miles, provided:
* you CHANGE the oil every 3000 miles (you can go up to 4000 miles if you use a QUALITY synthetic oil
* you CHECK the oil EVERY time you buy gas. These engines burn oil, so you should keep it topped up * you use a good quality oil, and don't use any of those funky oil additives.
The good thing is, unlike a timing belt, that just snaps when its time has come, the timing chain will give you plenty of audible warning as it's reaching the end of its service life. You'll hear a lot of noise, not unlike "rod knock" noise, around the area of the timing chain.
The Saturn sl2 does not have a timing belt, it has a timing chain. And under most conditions it does not need replacing.
The DOHC SL2 has a timing chain.
It does not work because it has a timing chain instead.
The 4 cylinder Saturn's all had timing chains.
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.
No, there is no timing belt on any of the the 4 cylinder Saturns, they all use an internal timing chain.
This proceedure is covered in the chiltons Saturn book available at auto zone and ect.
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.
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.
One can change the fuel pump in a 1998 Saturn SL2 by taking it to a local Saturn dealership for the original fuel pump part from the Saturn manufacturer.
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)
Get a service manual. Removal of the timing chain cover and head is needed first.
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.
1993 Saturn sl2
I am prettysure you can change the motor as long as the body structure is the same and you have skill in this sort of thing.
Are you asking how to??
u do not adjust belt tensioner if belt is loose, u need to replace belt as tensioner works automatically
4 quarts with filter change
....Suree. More information is needed
See link below
do a 99 Saturn sl2 have a transmission pan gasket
97 SL2 does not have a change oil light. Only the red oil indicator which means you have a serious problem
