An oil leak there is probably a valve cover gasket leaking. it would not require head gasket replacment. Try tightning the bolts on the valve cover. If that does not work then replace the valve cover gasket.

Yes it could be the head gasket as there are oil passages in the head and i have heard that head gasket on saturns are prone to failure,look around the valve cover for sings of a leak hopfully that's all it is because replacing the head gasket is costly on th 1.9 sohc

There are many ways that you could change the front grill of a vehicle. You could replace it or decorate it.

No. I had a Saturn of that year and the handbook warns against it. no front wheel drive vehicle should be flat towed (using a chain or strap). It will damage the transmission, much as towing an AWD or rear wheel drive vehicle without disconnecting the linkage. The best option if towing a front wheel drive vehicle is to use a car dolly, or call for a wrecker or rollback truck.

The vehicle speed sensor is between the transmission and the engine from the front of the the engine bay, there is also a vehicle wheel speed sensors in in each tire

Take it to a transmission shop. Depending on what you mean by front gasket, it will probably involve removing the transmission. Again depending on what you mean, it is most likely an indicator of a bigger problem.

Where is it leaking from? Could be front or rear seal or coolant lines Did you change gasket when you changed fluid?

Repairing a car can be costly. The cost to repair a Front Valve cover Gasket can range from $15 to $150 or more.

you could have a bad transmission pan gasket which is cheap and easy to fix yourself, or you need a new one. Besides the transmission pan gasket, there are other places the transmission could be leaking from: INPUT SHAFT: fluid would be coming out form the front of the tranny close to the engine. OUTPUT SHAFTS: fluid would be noticed directly below the driveshaft where it connects to the tranny or a rear-wheel-drive vehicle or the left and right axleshaft of front-wheel-drive vehicles. OTHER: tailhousing gasket, speedometer gear input seal, shifter housing seal/gasket, and any other mating surface which has a gasket or seal in it depending on particular vehicle.

It is very easy. The pump is located on the drivers side front of the engine. PROPERLY raise and support the vehicle on jack stands. From below the vehicle, first remove the two rubber lines that run to the gas tank, and the single steel line that goes to the carburetor. Then remove the two bolts that attach the fuel pump to the timing cover. Remove any old gasket left on the timing cover, bolt the new fuel pump and gasket on, then reattach the lines. Start vehicle, check for any fuel and oil leaks, correct if needed. Lower vehicle, you are done
