I think you should call around to local scrap yards and look on your local craiglist for a DOHC saturn engine with much lower mileage. Perhaps even a used engine vendor on ebay could be local to you. In any event I think before you undertake a major engine repair on a 15 year old engine it might make sense to put another engine in there. I do not know if a 95 DOHC is the same as a 99 DOHC but no doubt there are a few years which are interchangeable.

Oil is leaking, how can I tell if engine main


You don't give make or model. Here goes , The engine has a rear maim seal behind the fly wheel if it leaks the leak will be from the clutch housing. It has a front seal behind the crank shaft timing cover.it can leak from there . it can leak from the oil filter and oil pressure switch . Can also leak from the top timing cover gasket and cam shaft seals.

Peugeot 207 1.4, small oil leak from underneath, added engine stop leak, how long before it stops leak?


oil leaks from underneath can come from front crank shaft seal --rear crank shaft seal --oil filter--sump gasket---power steering ---leaking rocker cover gaskets ---leaking oil pressure switch.--transmission seals. I suggest that you have the engine professionally cleaned and then put it on a hoist while running to see where the oil is from

Oil leak on driveway coming from front of engine


Dear Sir,
Here is the oil leaking Problem Identifying Technique

Engine oil leaks from the valve cover gasket are common.

  • The intake manifold plenum gasket may leak and cause increased oil consumption/burning and a spark knock during acceleration; the gasket should be replaced.
  • External oil leaks from valve cover gaskets, intake gaskets (front or rear), and the rear crankshaft (rear main) seal area are common. The rear main seal is an unlikely source. Normally, the bearing cap mating surfaces (as well as the sealing surface between the oil pan and bearing cap) are the source for the leaks.
  • Engine oil leaks at the distributor can be misdiagnosed as leaks from theintake manifold seal, oil pan gasket, or rear crankshaft (rear main) seal. A revised distributor is available if oil is found inside the distributor.
  • If the oil filter casing shows signs of distortion from excessive oil pressure, theoil pump should be replaced.
  • Often misdiagnosed as a leaking oil filter gasket, the oil filter adapter can seep from between the adapter and engine block.
  • Carbon buildup on the top of the piston is common. As the buildup increases with mileage and over time, symptoms may vary from light ticking, to ticking/hammering, to hammering/knocking noises. Fuel injector cleaner often solves the problem.

    I have oil leaking onto my crank sensor, can you help me know where it's coming from? my car is a 95, lincoln con


    could be from the intake manifold or cam seal behind the timing cover. It's also possible
    the valve cover gaskets are leaking or the front main seal is leaking. Might try cleaning engine with a good degreaser and see where the leaks originate. Good luck

    How to fix an oil leak on a 93 tsi i cant tell if the turbo or somewhere else how do you cheack if the headgasket is bad because it smokes


    there is only one way to track down an oil leak, you must pressure wash the engine top and bottom, then you drive it a day or so and look under the engine and on top for the source of the leak, common area's to leak are oil pressure sending units, valve covers, oil pans, rear main seal of crank shaft and front cover seal of engine.

    Oil leak


    check your pcv valve usually if it gets plugged it will blow oil out where it can.the pressure builds up in crank case thats the pcv valves job to relieve the pressure

    Our timing belt broke on our 95 honda accord and we got put another motor in. It runs but doesnt have power and oil is leaking bad when the car warms up.


    first of all do you know if your engine is a non-interference i would think a 95 would be non-interference ( another words the valves do not collide with the piston in the event of belt failure ) for the power loss issue i would suspect your cam to crank timing ( align timing marks )
    exactly. as far as your oil leaks, as mentioned by another comment,
    your seals, ie. rear main, front crank, and your cam seal would of been simple to do prior to stabbing the engine, except for the cam seal you now have quite a job, if you did the install. if you paid a shop
    take it back. this is not even close to good business
