This engine is timed at t.d.c.. With the crank at 0 degrees you will start with your intake cam. this cam is hollow and advances( it actually moves to the right after 2500 rpm ) because it has a distributerless ign.. The timing marks for the cams are holes in the back of the gear flange where you can put a small 3 or 4mm. punch through the back of the flange resting the punch on the top of the head. the hole will be to your right on the intake and to your left on the exhaust( outside towards the manifold) When you get the intake cam timed hold the cam and turn the gear to the left as far as you can( if you look at the top of the advancer you can see the mechanism resting against the housing) If you do not the cam will over advance and hit a piston. Time the exhaust cam and put in your tensioner( I always reset the tensioner by knocking out the insert and starting it at the first detent( replace if possible). turn the engine around by hand and double check your marks you may have to move one of your cams a tooth to the left or right. Good luck

I recommend buying a Haynes manual (about $20) from automotive store; you'll need it for this task

Don't know for sure, but generally they are quite different on most engines.

Try leaving the dress up cover over the coil packs off. It may be engine heat. Also check alternator voltage is not over 14.6 volt when engine running at fast idle. You are not alone with this problem.

Firing order for a 4 cylinder Saturn 1998 Class AD model 4 door. I am not sure if it's an SL SL1, or SL2.


all Saturns for that year came out with a 1.9 liter engine. There was only one model that was different and had a single overhead cam. The rest had a duel overhead cam. The firing order is the same in both so you are in luck (see picture below). I hope this helps and good luck.

Hi Atsy,
I'd believe that the problem could be a bent distributor cam shaft (The center shaft inside the distributor.

HI, did you try checking the ignition coils. I had the same problem in my car I replace the one ignition coil where there was no power and that solve the problem. try not to buy cheap ones those will blow fast. you can find the Bosh original ones in the internet for a fare price. today at the dealer are about $212.00 each.

Trying to locate engine number to determine 16 0r 32 cam


Unfortunately, your question is very vague and hard to understand.

16 or 32 cam?
Usually your engine will have twin cams, or single cam.
Overhead cam(s) or not. You could determine if your engine
is a 4 or a 6 cylinder, and then you will generally find out how
many valves the engine has.

If you are in a 4 cylinder car, you probably have 16 valves if you have a twin cam engine.
If you have a single cam, 4 cylinder engine, then you will usually have only 8 valves.

The only way that you could end up with 32 valves, is if you have a dual overhead cam, v-6 engine.
Each head will have two cams, and each cylinder will have 4 valves then.

I hope that this is what you were trying to ask. :)
