When you get the timeing cover off there is a mark on both gears the one on the crank needs to be at 6 o clock and the one on the cam needs to be at 12 there is also a hole at 8 o clock on the top gear were you need to put a timing pin while you put everything back to geather the marks on both gears need to be cnetered in a link on the chain

Some codes are HARD codes & some SOFT codes. The hard code are stored in the computer memory because "something was wrong and is wrong." A soft code is when an issue happened but vanishes.Sounds like you might have something soft.You'll need that scanner hooked up when that light comes on to check the specs of the car.

SOURCE: Broken belt tensioner on 1999 Saturn SL1

I replaced the tensioner on my 91 and my 94 as they were bad. The same part fits the 99, though I have yet to replace the one on my 99, so I assume it has two bolts as well. If you have high speed access go to youtube and search saturn tensioner. Some guy has a video on there showing it being done lickety split with an air ratchet. While you most likely do not have air tools, at least that will show you where the two bolts are located if you cannot find them. You back out the bolts, pull out the tensioner, put the new one in and replace the bolts, tighten firmly. You have to have the plastic access panel behind the right front wheel removed to get at the bolts and to put the belt back on. Hey while you are in there you may want to replace the right side motor mount which is right in front of you. The one on the other side is under the battery box, your car may run a bit smoother with both of them replaced as the rubber grommets tend to wear out. These two keep the motor from yawing back and forth in the engine compartment. There are another two mounts which take a bit more skill to replace.

SOURCE: The shifter/transmission on my manual 5 spd 1999 Saturn SL1

This just happen to me a few weeks ago. If you take out the center piece in the car you should be able to see that the actual shifter is no longer connected to the rod which goes into the transmission. It is an easy problem to fix, however it is not cheap. I was told that you have to buy a complete new kit($250.00) for the shifter, however my dad gave me a different solution. He took some wire, and made a spider web type thing to keep it connected. On my car it was a small round plastic piece that broke, but I cannot remember what it was actually called. This little piece is not available through Saturn by itself, only through a complete kit. Please ask questions if this is not clear enough. Thanks :)

I think that my timing chain may be missaligned on a 99 saturn sl1 how do i check that and fixt it with out removing the timeing chain cover


I do not think that is possible, you must remove the cover to see and align the marks. I just replaced timing chain on a 99 SL1 I sold to a friend, and it was off one tooth from the factory. That assumes that no one ever changed it before, has 175,000 miles.

My 1999 saturn SL1 would not start w/o a jump. Then it began to start rather roughly now when i turn the ignition all i hear is 'electricity'. i have to get a jump to get it going


Sounds like you need to replace the battery. However you may have another issue and that could be your alternator. If the alternator is not recharging your battery while the car is running, then a new battery is going to die as well.

What would cause my1999 Saturn sl1 not to start after a new head gasket was put on? Ok so today we replaced the head gasket on my 1999 Saturn Sl1 single cam. We made sure the timing chain was put back on...


Check the cam/crank sensors. Also, if the car happens to have a distributor, make sure it is not 180 degrees off. If this does not help, then do a compression check. Remember, and engine only needs three things to run. Fuel, Spark, and Compression. (in order of course.) The firing order for your engine is 1,4,3,2.
