Well then you need to get a new timing chain kit, and think about that water pump too, while you are in there. Kits are pretty cheap on ebay, and if you can pull a head you can replace the chain.

How do you replace the water pump on a 1995 Saturn sl1


it is under the timing chain cover. the serpentine belt and all that accompanying stuff has to be removed and/or disconnected. while you are doing this you may want to do the timing chain and sprockets too to avoid duplicating labor next year. The oil pump is also in there. This is a lot of work and not for the neophyte, the timing chain has to be put in maintaining proper relationship between the crank and cam shafts.

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.

Does saturn sl1 1995 have a timing belt


No the Saturn S-series all use a timing chain. The chain is expected to outlive the car given the proper maintenance of oil changes and the proper level is maintained.

Turns over but won't fire


well the plastic piece are from the timing chain guides are either broken or ripped off,and the metal rattling was probably the timing chain,,i think the timing chain jmped or broke and broke the guides,if thats the car you most likely bent the valves in the head,,,i would remove the cam cover and the timing chain cover and see what you got,you may need a engine

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.

The 2001 Saturn SL1 has a timing chain which shouldn't need maintenance for the life of the engine or 200,000 miles typically. hope this helps
