If you have to ask, it is probably better to replace with same engine from junk yard, make sure low miles and warranty...

With regrets, Not likely, pull the vlave cover and observe the height of the valves, if it is bent it should be not quite as tall as the rest.

SOURCE: The belt broke so I need to know where the timing

First you need to find out if this is a "safe" engine, a few are but most bend some valve when the belt goes (you could try turning gently by hand using the alternator belt) proceed as follows:-remove the drive belts, water pump pulleys, crank pulley, and the upper and lower timing covers.  You'll also need to remove the motor mount if 
You'll need to move the tensioner for installation of the new belt.  Loosen both the pivot and clamp bolts on the tensioner.  Pry the tensioner up and toward the back of the car, and when at the rearmost position, tighten the clamping bolt.

You'll also need to line up the camshaft and crankshaft to TDC.  There's a small hole in the camshaft sprocket that lines up with a notch in the front camshaft bearing cap.  The hole should be pretty much straight up when aligned.  There's a notch in the crankshaft sprocket that lines up with a *** on the front case of the engine.  If I recall correctly, this puts the Woodruff key at about 3:00 when aligned.  

Then install the timing belt with all the slack on the tensioner side.  Loosen the tensioner clamping bolt to release the tensioner, let it self-tension with the spring force, and retighten the clamping bolt.  Turn the engine clockwise with the crankshaft two crankshaft revolutions (1 cam revolution).  This will make sure you have the proper amount of slack on the tensioner side.  Recheck to make sure your marks are still aligned.  Then loosen the tensioner clamping bolt once again to let it self-adjust, and tighten the clamping and pivot bolts.  

After that, it's just a matter of putting everything back that you took off, but before doing anything, you may wish to consider that it's likely engine damage was done when the timing belt broke.  You may wish to pull the plugs and examine before you start anything mentioned above.  Evidence of anything hitting the plug is a sign of a valve broken off and probably a need for an entire engine.  You may also, after installing the timing belt, wish to bolt the crank pulley back on and see if the engine starts.  If the engine cranks quickly (lack of compression) and won't start, you've at least bent some valves and will need to remove the cylinder head.

99 pontiac grand am se series 3400 liter motor i need to replace the water pump do you have to take the timing chain cover off to it looks like its all connected together


go to the library and get a book for your car with the motor you have in it.this should be a (sohc)single overhead cam motor and not the (dohc)dual overhead cam motor.the sohc motor the pump is located at the rad side of the motor and doesn`t need to have the timing cover removed.if it happens to be the dohc motor then your best to have a shop do the job as its not an easy job to do








this should be a (sohc)single overhead cam motor.this pump is located at the front of the motor towards the rad.thus you don`t remove the timing cover and easy to replace,once you remove the serpintine belt then the pulley on the pump then there are about 6 bolts that you remove to change the pump.if its the (dohc)motor i strongly suggest you have a shop do the job as its not an easy job to do and if you don`t get the timing belts timed exactly you will be sending the heads to the machine shop to repair.

What short block will fit in my 99 sl2 i need to know what years if any that have the same block as my 1.9l dohc engine


Whatever year has the 1.9l dohc engine, but there always different changes to the motor, like intake manifold or the fuel rail. Make sure if you get a different 1.9l it is the dohc not sohc or you have to get the ecm for sohc. From what I know the 95-'00 SL2 have the 1.9l dohc.

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?

I have a 96 saturn that i replaced the tranny in with a 95 tranny. when i drive it it will go through the gears. when it goes to shift into 3rd it downshifts. what is causing that to happen


You have to make sure that you are using the correct transmission. If you have a SOHC then you need the SOHC transmission. A DOHC transmission will bolt up but it has the wrong gear ratios for your SOHC and its computer. You will get all kinds of funky shifting if you use a SOHC car with a DOHC transmission or vise versa. Check the stamping on the bell housing of the transmission you put in and see if it has an MP7 or MP6. MP6 trannys are the SOHC transmission, the MP7 is the DOHC transmission.

How can i put a DOHC into a SOHC 2001 Ford Focus? or would it be possible/easier to rebuild my SOHC? thanks!! ; )


Easier to rebuilt the SOHC since your going to have to replace the ECM and wire harness to accommodate the DOHC engine. Good luck and keep it simple.
