Question about Saturn SL1

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 WITHOUT ANY COMPLICATIONS?

    The 95 LS-2 HAS A AUTO TRANSMISSION. IS THERE GOING TO BE A COMPUTER DIFFERENCE OR CHANGE?

  • billgo61 Apr 24, 2010

    AND YES , I WANT TO SWAP OUT THE TWO MOTORS AND TRANNYS

  • billgo61 Apr 24, 2010

    THE TRANNY IS OUT ON THE LS-2 AND THE 96 LS-2 HAD MAJOR REAR END DAMAGE. SO WE PULLED THE MOTOR AND TRANNY. SO I THOUGHT I WOULD SWAP OUT THE MOTORS AND TRNNYS. I FIGURED SINCE THE MOTOR AND TRANNY ON THE 96 ARE IN ONE PIECE IT WOULD BE EASIEST TO JUST SWAP THE MOTOR AND TRANNYS. INSTEAD OF CHANGING TRANNYS WITH THE MOTORS.

    I WOULD ANYWAY IF I JUST SWAPPED OUT THE TRANSMISSIONS.

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?

    Yes there are computer differences. Anything can be done with enough time and effort, and this can be done. If you don't mind me asking, why do you want to do this? Is the 1995 blown up? Does the 96 run and move or is it wrecked?

    The problem is you will not only be switching the motor and trans, you will need to switch computers, wiring harness, shifter, dash panels, pedals, cables, clutch master, clutch slave, drive shafts and a few other parts. It's a lot of work, and it will take some time. I hope you still have the wrecked car for parts.

    It would be less work if you didn't change the engine and the dual cam engine will run better.

90 to 105 comression on my 95 saturn timing chain broke will it run if i put a new chain in


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.

take the console out and look under the shifter, if the shifter cables are disconnected from the shifter go to a parts store or ebay and get yourself a Saturn shifter bushing repair kit. happens all the time to S Saturns and maybe the Ls look on youtube for instructions to remove console and put on the bushing kit.

if the shifter cables are still connected you may have to be looking around for a lower mileage used transmission. 96-98 saturn will fit so long as the donor car has the same head, being DOHC or SOHC. so if you have an SL1 you can use a transmission out of another SL1, or an SC1, or an SW1. do not mix a 2 with a 1, bad mojo.

What kind of transmission fluid do you put in a manual 1996 saturn sl model?


You put gear oil in a manual transmission, not automatic transmission fluid. Look in your owners manual for the proper weight, or ask the guys behind the counter at a parts store.

I want to know if a 1996 and a 1998 saturn is interchangable body and motor wise


most all body and interior parts will interchange 96-99. engine however is different, you can put a SOHC engine into another car made for SOHC. you cannot put a DOHC engine into a saturn made for the SOHC engine or vice versa. the transmissions have different gear ratios. and the engines changed between 98 and 99 so you may have some problems swapping between those years.

1995 Saturn automatic trans. shifting hard enough to brake motor mounts. Any suggestions for fixing


you may need to change the modulator valve on transmission and also check the modulator valve to be sure it's getting the proper vacum to it. the modulator valve controls shifting in the transmission. also suggest lucas transmission treatment be added to transmission fluid, it frees up stuck valves in transmission. hope this helps!!!

You are going to need to purchase the computer that came with the transmission you are putting into the vehicle. A manual transmission computer is not programmed to monitor the same stuff as an automatic transmission. It would be the equivalent of using microsoft word the fix a digital photograph. The program is just not up to the job... I would just buy the whole wiring harness and computer. Then you know it will work. Good luck.

Yes, your owners manual will have a section on maintenance schedules. It will tell you how often you should change it. No owners manual? Let me know and I'll find out for you.
