How do you know which valves should be open/ closed (BTDC/ATDC) on which cylinder in the head of a 4g64 sohc head to put the head in time with the crank

All of the valves in the number one cylinders should be closed when the engine marks line up at TDC (top dead center). BTDC= before top dead center, ATDC = after top dead center.

I replaced the tranny in my 96 sohc due to a cracked case. I used one from a dohc thinking it didnt matter since it was automatic. Well I found out that there are different trannys for the saturns. I know...

yes the sohc and the dohc have different transmissions. you can tell which is which by looking at the head of the engine and by checking the wheel size. the sohc had 14 inch wheels and the dohc had 15 inch wheels. that is why your speedo is off and your engine is laboring. also often there is DOHC on the rear bumper.
find one still in a car and have them pull the right one for you.

Looking for correct engine size to order parts

This year and make car came with 4 diffrent engines,the way to know which engine you have is to locate the decal under the hood or the easy way for you is get your vin# (id #) this number is on your reg, your insurance card and your title, if you look at that number and count from left to right to the 8th digit, this letter will tell you your engine size, here are the definitions for the digit, if the 8th digit is a X = 2.4 eng with DOHC (DOHC = dual overhead cams).
if its a G = 2.4 eng with SOHC (SOHC = single overhead cam)
if it a R or T = 2.7 engine
if its a H = 3.0 engine. this is easy with the vin #. remember count to the 8 th digit from left to right. For example 548gk36r t698 if this was your vin the 8th digit would be a R, so you would tell the parts place you have a 2.7 engine. hope this helps.

I just need to know what size engine comes in a saturn SL1, it's a 1997?

Unless it has been modified it is a 1.9L 4 cylinder, the same engine in all Saturns from 91-99. The only difference is whether or not it is a SOHC or DOHC, meaning single or double overhead cam. Double overhead cam has spark plug sockets in the center of the top of the head and is overall slightly larger than the SOHC engine which has spark plug sockets on the front of the engine. Usually there will be something on the rear bumper like DOHC as well. The engines are nearly identical in all other respects but the transmissions are not the same. If your car has 14 inch wheels most likely you have a SOHC while if your wheels are 15 inch you have a DOHC.
