Should be the DOHC. It will say Saturn 16v on the valve cover. Auto Zone can test the control module.

1992 geo storm replaced distributer have fire out of coil wire but no fire spark plug wire module in distributer checks out


storm is an ISUZU
and had 3engines,which one? below is off wiki on storm.
1.6 L SOHC 4XE1 I4
1.6 L DOHC 4XE1 I4
1.8 L DOHC 4XF1 I4


coil makes 50,000 volts (even 1kv makes fire, but is too weak spark
spark plugs dead , right? all 4 right?
ever do a 60k mile tune up ? if not why not, it gets new spark parts then..
also, if the cam timing is off. the dizzy sparks between towers
make the distributor useless, it cant distribute spark.
so the first tests are .
static ignition timing. (yes, a tool, called a timing light for $20)
if timing is good the the wires HV are bad.
if timing is bad, bingo..... this is the first test on any motor.
if the timing belt or chain on any SOHC or DOHC engine slips
the dizzy will be way to h3ll off.
learn to use a timing light, and works 100% cranking.

look at that distributor cap (replace it)
see the coil wire , center, that is at 50kv spark.
and see that rotor, if the spark is good at the cap pins 1 to 4
then the dizzy is timed.
if the spark dont reach the spark plugs that means
the wire are bad or the spark plugs are shorted, or both.
its that simple. using a real spark testing tools tells you the KV.
kv = kilovolts. the best tools $5 bucks have and adjustable gap
this car is not 100kv, like newer cars and must be set (tool) to 50kv or tad less to show full powerful spark.

take care not to get shocked, keep hands off the parts
as friend cranks (or remote start button tool)

How to change cam shaft sensor on 1998 saturn sl1


There is not a cam sensor on the 1.9 sohc or dohc engine. The ignition module looks at the collapsing magnetic field of the ignition coil to determine cam reference.

Did you mean crank sensor?

Are you coming up with a code for the cam sensor?

If so the fix is usually to remove the coils and ignition module from the transmission. Clean the area they mount to with a scotchbrite pad until all the corrosion is removed. Reinstall the ignition module and coils using new bolts available from saturn/GM. Clear the code.

In some cases the ignition module or the coil or the ignition wires can also cause this code if they are bad.

I replaced the tranny in my 96 sohc due to a cracked case. I used one from a dohc thinking it didnt matter since it was automatic. Well I found out that there are different trannys for the saturns. I know...


yes the sohc and the dohc have different transmissions. you can tell which is which by looking at the head of the engine and by checking the wheel size. the sohc had 14 inch wheels and the dohc had 15 inch wheels. that is why your speedo is off and your engine is laboring. also often there is DOHC on the rear bumper.
find one still in a car and have them pull the right one for you.
