Your internal pressures are too high!!!!!!!

change the pcv valve and get the oil filter checked. Sometimes the oil filter will block and the oil pump will over pressurize the engine. See a mechanic Soon!!!

Where is the valve gasket located on a 1996 Saturn CR

Around the edge of the value cover. The value cover bolts to the engine head (top) and the gasket fastens between the cover and the heads, All the cover and gasket do is direct the oil on top the engine values to flow back down into the engine block after this been pumped on top of the value stems. Gasket breaks and you have oil around the engine an on the ground. Also smoke when your driving around.

Sounds like the engine can't breath,
make sure pcv valve is good,or oil cap is vented.
your engine is building up pressure and has no where to vent,so it blows the easiest thing,the dip stick

White smoke from motor

Checking oil when it's HOT with mask the coolant oil mix formation.
Check the oil when the engine is COLD. If it has creamy/milkshake like oil in the engine crack case then it's a real bad sign.
Check the oil cap when it's COLD. Like for the creamy/milkshake non-oil like cream.
Are you loosing coolant?
Keep a log book on the coolant lost.
Does it over heat or does it the engine ran hotter compare to few months ago?

To pin point a blowing headgasket you will need
1)coolant system compression tester
2)chemical reaction test for combustion test gas
If it's the org. engine from 1986,with over 86,000 then blown headgasket is a good possiblity.
Tow it to the shop and let the pro to do the coolant pressure test and combustion gas test.
A full head gasket job with head re-surface (if it can be re-use) is worth it.
Shop around on well estiblished independent shops.
Fix the blown head gasket at the first stage of failure can safe you thousand on a head replacement.
