Early Saturn VUE's use a Opel designed V6 engine. This engine is also used in the Cadillac Catera, Saturn L series, and Saab vehicles. This engine does use a rubber timing belt that does have to be replaced every 90-100k miles. It should be noted this engine requires some very special tools to replace the timing belt. Pretty $$ tools. The tools can be rented here for 30 days: http://www.ledfix.com/timingbelttoolrental.html

Im looking to buy a 2002 Saturn 4 door sl 4 cylinder Saturn had problems with the timing chain breakinat how many miles should the timing chain be changed?

The 6 cylinder Saturns were equipped with the "Ecotec" engine, which used a timing belt. Timing belts fail over time, and Saturn recommends that the belt be replaced every 100,000 miles. The 4 cylinder Saturns all used timing chains. With recommended service and normal use, the timing chain should not fail. It is recommended that you replace the timing chain and sprockets whenever the engine is rebuilt, but otherwise, the timing chain is considered to be quite reliable.


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.
