Re: on a saturn when pulling engine must i pull...
As long as you have the clearance the trans can stay in the vehicle but you will have to support it from the bottom or where ever it is best.Just make sure to support it while the engine is being pulled out so it does not fall down.Hope this helps.Good luck.

I'm 99% positive that compression should be more than 200psi. If the chain broke it bent valves. A used motor would be your better option. The 1.9 SOHC is a cheap and common engine. The 1.9 DOHC will be considerably more expensive.
If you have a manual transmission the engine and trans will need to be pulled together and separated out of the car. If you have an automatic transmission the engine can be removed without pulling the transmission.
The clutch come out with the engine since it is bolted to the fly wheel. If you had an automatic transmission then you would need to remove the torque converter bolts from the flywheel so that the torque converter would stay in the transmission.
If you pulled the manual transmission the clutch would stay attached to the flywheel. It's the same when pulling the engine.
To check your automatic transmission fluid, look for a dipstick handle sticking out of your transmission. This is located toward the rear of an in-line engine on vehicles with rear-wheel drive as shown here:
If your vehicle has front-wheel drive, the transmission fluid dipstick is sticking out of the transaxle, as shown here.
To check your automatic transmission fluid, follow these steps:
Pull out the dipstick.
With the gearshift in Neutral or Park and the parking brake on, let your engine run. Be sure the engine is warm when you pull out the dipstick. (Don't turn off the engine.)
Check the fluid.
Dip the tip of your index finger into the fluid on the dipstick and rub the fluid between your finger and the tip of your thumb. The transmission fluid on the dipstick should be pinkish and almost clear. If it looks or smells burnt or has particles in it, have a mechanic drain and change the fluid.
Wipe the dipstick with a clean, lint-free rag; then reinsert it and pull it out again.
If the transmission fluid is clear but doesn't reach the "Full" line on the dipstick, use a funnel to pour just enough transmission fluid down the dipstick tube to reach the line. Don't overfill!
you will check the oil with then engine off. Pull the oil dipstick (yellow one) and wipe clean. Reinsert the dipstick and pull out. The oil level should be in the hash marks. If the level is below the hash marks than start by adding one quart and recheck. One quart will change the oil level from the bottom of the hash marks to the top of the hash marks.
The transmission fluid needs to be checked with the engine running. Preferably warmed up to operating temperature. With your foot on the brake engage the transmission through all the gears and then back into park. With the engine still running remove the transmission dipstick (red one) and wipe clean. Reinsert the dipstick and pull out. The fluid level should be in btween the hot marks. If it is low start by adding 1/2 quart at a time through the transmission dipstick tube. You will need a funnel small enough to fit in the tube to do this. It will take a while for the fluid to drain out of the tube. Recheck check the fluid level and continue adding in 1/2 quart increments until the level is in between the hot marks.
Hi I'm litoshop if your going to pull out the transmission you don't have to pull it out with the engine using a cross rack over the towers of the shock you hang the engine so you can take out the tranny with out bring the engine out, some mega auto parts lend out these special tool if you want to do it yourself you can try pep boy or western auto good luck on your new project if this information has been helpful please let use know thank you
I'm sure you already pulled the wheel, caliper, disc brake, and wheel hub.
So now all you have to do is pull on the drive shaft for the driver side, it's not hard as long as you pull it straight.
As for the passenger side, it is actually in 2 parts, there is a bracket/bearing assembly towards the middle of the drive shaft, if you take all 3 bolts out of the bracket you could pull both shafts at the same time using a small pry bar between the transmission and drive shaft and having an assistant pull the drive shaft out.
