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

Can you flat tow a 1998 sw1 Saturn?

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.

You changed the transmission fluid but it still leaks?

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

Why would your car leak transmission fluid?

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.

Can you use sealant instead of gasket for oil pan?

Some vehicles use just a sealant gasket at the front and back of the pan and a gasket along the sides. If your vehicle calls for a gasket your are better off getting one because it is a pretty minor expense. The whole reason for the gasket is that the manufacturer expects some pan flexing as the engine warms up. So...If you don't plan to keep the car very long maybe you can get away with it for awhile but it's really not worth it. I'd recommend you get the correct gasket. Good luck.

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
