I assume you mean the DOHC off of an sc2.......and yes it is but at the same time you will have to get a 97 DOHC SC2 engine computer. Best bet is a used parts dealer and or junkyard. However if you do not mean an entire engine swap and just want specific parts then no.

How do i know if my 1999 saturn is a SL OR A SC SC OR S1 SO ON


The SL is the small 4 door
The SC is the 2 door Sport Coupe
The numbers refer to the engine. The all have a 1.9 liter. "1" is a Single Over Head Cam, 8th VIN will be an "8". "2" is the Dual Over Head Cam, 8th VIN will be a "7"

So a Saturn SL2 with be a 4 door with a DOHC 1.9 liter. SL1 will be a 4 door with a SOHC 1.9 liter. SC2 will be a 2 door with a 1.9 liter DOHC. SC1 will be a 2 door with a 1.9 liter SOHC.

Can i put a bigger engine in my 1997 Saturn SC1 and go from SOHC to DOHC


Anything is possible. Do you really want to open that can of worms??? You will need to also change all of the wiring harnesses, all the emission controlls and the engine control computer to go with it. If you have OBD emissions testing in your area, it will be very difficult to pass inspection unless you transfer EVERYTHING. If you just want more power, it would be a whole lot easier to just buy another car with a bigger engine.

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.

Cna you use a transmission from an s model car to put in a sl edition


Probably possible. The tranny in my '95 Saturn SL2 failed at 30k and the engine blew at 57k while starting. Hope you have better luck; no more GM for me.

Is it possible to use the transmission from a SOHC in a DOHC vehicle? can i change the computer or is there any way to make this combination work .i purchased this vehicle and discovered afterwards someone...


They have different gear ratios, that is why the SOHC uses 14 inch wheels and the DOHC uses 15 inch wheels. Your instrument cluster will be wrong in speed and miles, and your clutch or transmission will prematurely wear.

Chaged transmission on 1997 saturn now it will not


It sounds like you have the wrong transmission. If your car is a DOHC aka an SL2, SC2, or SW2 then you have an MP7 transmission. If you have a SOHC, aka a SL1, SC1, or SW1 then you have an MP6. You need the right transmission for the right motor...DOHC needs the MP7 while the SOHC needs the MP6.

On top of that, you need the correct gear ratios which changed over the years. Your '97 CANNOT use a '98-'02 transmission. It must be 1991-1997 if it is an MP7 or 1993-1997 if it is an MP6.

Otherwise the PCM will not shift the wrong transmission.

I just need to know what size engine comes in a saturn SL1, it's a 1997?


Unless it has been modified it is a 1.9L 4 cylinder, the same engine in all Saturns from 91-99. The only difference is whether or not it is a SOHC or DOHC, meaning single or double overhead cam. Double overhead cam has spark plug sockets in the center of the top of the head and is overall slightly larger than the SOHC engine which has spark plug sockets on the front of the engine. Usually there will be something on the rear bumper like DOHC as well. The engines are nearly identical in all other respects but the transmissions are not the same. If your car has 14 inch wheels most likely you have a SOHC while if your wheels are 15 inch you have a DOHC.
