A timing belt will cause other damage if it broke. Do a compression check to see if any valves were bent and are now open if the valves do not have any compression. If all cylinders have compression, then the timing chain did not break. Note, my 2002 Saturn L100 had a broken timing chain and 3 of 4 cylinders did not have compression. My solution was to have someone install a used engine.

Steve, You can find information at several web sites. One is All Data but they will charge you for each individual vehicle but Auto Zone will provide most vehicles for free.
Good luck.

Code P1632 on a 2002 Saturn how to reset

this is a anti-theft code....

try unlocking the door on the driver's side with the factory key. hold it towards the unlock for a moment or two...

it is also important that you not be using the valet key and that it is a normal factory key...

also try the key fob with the same process if the key fails...

good luck

Car dies going down the highway after about 20 miles then starts back and dies again some times it starts right away sometimes after 5/6 tries always restarts???? no code some times when it starts dieing...

Had this happen with a Honda Accord: carb icing.
You do not have a carb.
Had this happen with a newer Honda, bad ignition switch. It was intermittent. $24 and one hour fixed it.
Good luck

Trouble starting, engine won't catch

Try pulling the engine coolant temp sensor, They often crack not sure why but the ceramic tip cracks makes the car hard to start, the car's idle may race while shifting gears, and often smokes. The sensor is on the right side of the engine when looking at it on the head. Easy to change and get too
