you will need approx. 5 quarts of Oil 10W 30
you will need an oil pan, rags an oil filter wrench(walmart--very cheap). New oil filter obviously. 14mm wrench or socket for the drain plug.
Procedure: let car warm up (this will help drain all oil out faster and more efficiently)
take drain plug out first,
let that drain while you place a little oil in the new filter (if it is a horizontal mounting filter then there is no need to put any in)
use your oil filter puller and take off the old filter. that may have a little residual drainage; after that place the new filter in and then replace the drain plug(once all the oil has stopped running out. a little bit left in there won't hurt) place at least three quarts in to the filler hole. then start the engine for aproxx 30 sec. This will allow the oil to fill the oil filter and also heat it up a bit. let it sit for a minute then check the level. It may take a little over 4 quarts, you will have to check the dip stick as you pour more in. take it for a test drive then park on the level, let it sit for a minute, then check it again. if it is way over then you must drain some back out. over filling can damage your engine.

SOURCE: Saturn SC2 Hot Start Problem
My 1997 SC1 would start fully charged after about 5 minutes of cooling off (same as my Busa). If the vehicle draws lots of bettery energy when the ignition switch is turned (the headlights dim as if the battery was week) and all you her is a "tlock" then more than likely the starter solenoid is sticking when the engine gets hot. Age, as well as wear and tear in the vehicle, would cause for the stater, and the starter solenoid, to weaken. When the engine is cool it will start as if the starter was new, but after driving the car for about 10 minutes the problem starts. The engine running hotter than normal (ie.cooling system problems, diferent muffler system, low oil level), no necesary due to overheating, will add to the problem. My solution was a new stater ($115) and a starter heat wrap ($20), and I never had that problem again :-)

SOURCE: Saturn L200 Passlock Problem
I have a very untechnical solution to this problem and I can't for the life of me remember where I heard it but it sure does work. Turn the igniton to ON so that the dash lights up. Eventually the others lights go out and the flashing "Securty" light stays. Keep the driver side door slightly ajar and sit and wait for that Security light to stop blink, usually 5-10 minutes. Once it stops blinking you can start your car. I can't promise that you won't have the starting problem again, but it will happen with decreasing frequency. Ultimately you need to have the passlock issue handled at a dealership. I say DEALERSHIP because it's a manufacturer flaw and they should be made aware of this issue everytime. They're also best equipped to handle it.
