The only thing would do for the stripped bolts is to retap them with a tap & die set using the next larger size. As for the one that's broken off you can use what's called an "Easyout". You drill a hole into the broken off part of the bolt and then insert the Easyout. The Easyout has left hand threads and as you turn it , it bites into the broken bolt and usually will take it right out.

Hope this helps.

Good luck Loringh

I have a saturn 2.2 ecotec 2003 i resurface my cylinder heads and now i need to install them but i dont know the sequence and the torque for each bolt


The head bolts are t.t.y.
that means Torque To Yield.
the bolts must be tightened down to a set point, then tightened to a set degree point.
You must find this specific number for your engine......don't put it on until you have these numbers !!!

How do I take the bolt out of my ecm the bolt is stripped and broke Im trying to change the ecm and bolt


I think you mean the head of a bolt that opens the ECU can is stripped. The only way is to use an angle grinder (or maybe a Dremel tool with grinder/cutting wheel) to remove the head. Once it off, the remaining bolt can usually be removed with long nose pliers.

Stripped Side Timing Cover


Too legal for me to get into - but I'm puzzled by the term "stripped".
The cover should be bolted to the side of the engine, and with several small bolts.
Unless the bolts that hold the motor mount to the block AROUND the cover were stripped for some reason.
It sounds like the motor mount bolts came loose and let the motor drop which would pull the axle out.
How they got loose is the question you can't answer.
They may have been "not tight" from the factory, or someone may have taken the mount off at some point in time to remove the cover.
The liability would fall on the person who caused the bolts to be loose which is another question you can't answer or prove.

How do you remove the valve cover from a 1997 saturn sohc


I have a 1997 SOHC (Single Overhead Cam) SL-1 and it is not difficult at all to remove the Valve Cover. There are 2 small "Star" indentations in the top of large round discs - these are actually screws.


Although the screws SHOULD screw out using a star driver - that hardly ever works. Over a period of time the screws "set" pretty solid and are hard to get off - you end up striping out the star head. I removed mine just a few days ago to replace the gasket and what I did was got a pair of PIPE vice grips (The jaws are round instead of flat) you have to carefully lock them onto each of the round disc screws so that the jaws are exactly left and right - the handles of the pliers should be pointing right in the middle of your chest as you're standing in front of the car.


With the pliers locked, very carefully wiggle them back and forth - RIGHT then left - very slowly and the screws will start to move, when they do then you should be able to screw them out with your fingers or at that point use the star driver.


The reply that mentioned the 10 bolts, and the spark plugs in the middle refer to a DOHC (Dual overhead Cam) Since you inquired about a SOHC there should only be the 2 large round "Disc" looking bolts - one to the left and one to the right.


Make sure you get ALL of the old gasket off of the head and cover so the new one will "Seat" good.

I have a 1998 saturn SL2 with a LL1.9LL4 engine, want to switch out with a 1998 saturn SW2SW wagon with a 16 valve twin cam will this work? SL2 engine blown, SW2SW ****** is going!


If you are replacing a DOHC 1998 engine with another DOHC 1998 engine yes it will work. Saturn only made two engines from 91-99 and they all had the same block, difference some were SOHC and others were DOHC. The number "1" after SL or SC or SW means SOHC while the number "2" after SC or SL or SW means a DOHC.

Note if one is an auto and the other manual you are going to have to swap the flywheel/ring gear stuff over.

Chainging tensioner...stripped top bolt...we need a tool that will tighten up onto the bolt in a very small space...


What you need is a mechanic who knows how to use an extractor.
tow it to a shop. one of those deals where it costs more if you worked on it first.

WANT TO PUT A 1996 LS -1 SATURN, MANUAL TRANSMISSION AND MOTOR INTO A 1995 LS-2 SATURN BODY AND CHASSIS. WILL I HAVE TO CHANGE THE COMPUTER? DOES THE DESIGN CHANGE FROM 95 TO 96 EVEN MAKE IT POSSIBLE...


There isn't much difference between them. The SL series didn't change between 95 and 96 except for the ecm is OBD2 on the 96. Are both cars stick shift? The difference in the SL1 and the SL2 are the cams. 1 for sohc and 2 for dohc. So what you are asking is can I take out my dohc motor and install a sohc motor right?

The bolt threads are stripped on my auto battery. How do I repair so the terminal bolt will stay tight?


If it is the bolt that is stripped you can buy a new bolt at any parts store, if the threads in the battery are stripped, well you can get one of those at the parts store as well. You can probably rethread the hole to a bigger size, or use a heli-coil thread insert, but I have never tried one of these on a battery and dont know how well it will work out.
