There is a web site called getsaturnparts.com, you can find about any NOS part there for saturns. they have never sent me a wrong part.

what you are needing is a good mechanic, not necessarily a dealer. if you google around however you will find a local GM dealer that has been saddled with the saturn warranty issues. they may or may not have an exsaturn mechanic on staff. they will however have access to tech support, recalls, and manuals from what is left of Saturn.

with the expense you are looking at, were I you i would think about a used engine with much lower mileage, they can be found at junkyards across the land. i think a saturn engine up to 98 will fit your car. you have to know whether you have a SOHC or DOHC engine and you must replace it with the same type used motor. you can swap your engine for a rebuilt engine as well, those run about 2 thousand dollars.

2008 f350 6.4 liter wrench light on reduced engine power on no codes water pump and housing replaced thermostats replaced coolant flushed twice oil coolers free flowing lights are still on any sugesti


Have the codes read. I haven't worked on any thing to date that reduce power because of the coolant system or the oil. I have done some that will kill the engine because of both, but not reduced power. This could be from an engine hard part, sensor or wiring. Most times it's caused from a transmission problem.

Where is the camshaft position sensor located on a 95.5 tacoma 2RZ-FE engine?


OBD1 -1983 thru 1995

OBD2 - 1996 thru 2013

Your Code Reader should not work without
OBD1 software

So I guess it is really a 1996 obd2 system

Lets educate

NO CODES--tell you what is wrong
NO CODES--tell you what to replace

Codes are used to diagnose the system & there are many,
with the fault or malfunction that does not meet federal
emission standards

You check for codes in a day or so of any problem
You then use the code to direct you to a system
The code is then used along with factory service &
diagnostic manuals to find out how to component test

Your up to the point of needing reference material
& system knowledge,& test equipment

Any Sensors job is to report back to the ecm/pcm
(computer module) usually powertrain module,
that something is out of range, as to how it was
designed & programmed on the assy line

So could the sensor be bad,maybe

Could what is looks at be bad,maybe

You need to go to You Tube & put in your
veh & engine & see what that is

You have VVT variable cam sprocket actuators
that may be worn if the former owner failed to
change the oil or used the wrong oil

So there can be other issues related to that code
& other thing that need work

Spark Plugs
Gas Filter
Check Fuel Pressure
New front O2 Sensors
Air Filter
and on & on

Why unless your the original owner
none of that was ever done

Basic Preventative Maintenance first
Diagnose Code related second

Keep me posted

Have oil in my radiator fluid reservoir tank (1996 v6 3.8)


Twice in two years now my Saab 9-5 has had a pin-hole in the oil cooler, which has caused oil to flow into the reservoir. A way to tell is if coolant/oil is coming out of the reservoir cap. The reservoir cap is rated for the pressure of the coolant system, which is significantly lower than the oil pressure. When there is a hole in the oil cooler, oil will be forced out at relatively high pressures, causing the reservoir to fill and then over pressurize and spill out of the cap.
