Timing chain should last the life of the engine. That motor has been operated with less than high quality oil though.

I'm pretty sure the rear seat covers can be removed and laundered in a washing machine (gentle cycle, probably). For sure, the fronts on a DOHC can be removed.

Not positive, as on the SOHC cars, folks have reported that the front seat cover is glued onto the foam. So not sure if Saturn did the same to the rears. It's been about 5 years since I removed a rear seat bottom

My knock sensor and oil sensor had the wires broken. I took off the sensors wires added so wire soldered and added heat shrink. The knock sensor had very little wire sticking out maybe 1/8 inch at the wire loom.

In the end I got both of them soldered up and heat shrink on it.
I put new valve body in the transmission. Still not much reverse but I did not expect it to fix reverse without tightening and torquing the input nut.

I drove the car around the yard and when it shifted to second there was no more codes. Actually it has no codes at all right now.

Only one starter bolt was tightened down it looked like the top bolt was to long I put a shorter on in there and tighten it down.

I replaced the air filter. Rebuilt the transmission dog bone.

I ordered two Dorman replacement mirrors. They are black and my son is ok with that.
Hopefully they are decent if not they will go back. They were a better price than a Junk Yard version.

I have multiple examples. The true epoxy JB Weld is an effective repair - reinforcement before broke.

The driverís manual window is stuck up. I took it apart today and the windows regulator is bad.
I scouted out a replacement on Saturday when I was getting other parts. I did not get it because I had not taken the door apart to make sure what was bad.

I was going to pick it up today but they crushed the car yesterday.
I just ordered a new one ho well. At least the new one has a LT warranty.

I installed the injectors I got from the upick it JY the other day.
The other dog bone needs rebuilt and the top motor needs replaced. They are all not to good.

Bad valve seals are just lived with. That may clear up with an oil brand change.

Some people would never feel a thing until the engine falls out on the ground.

Both trans mount and motor mount are the worst I have ever seen. I am sure that was a major reason they sold the car.

We have the door apart and the striped windows regulator out. When we put it all back together we we put on his new mirror.

My son got a Deadpool seat cover he was installing.

You are likely correct, failed mounts forced sale of car as local "mechanic" could not solve clunking and vibration.

The windows regular is installed. We still need to install inner door panel.
I got lucky and got this mirror off Amazon for $6.17 both mirrors total was $27.26 shipped.

Before and after


I think it looks good and we are going to leave in black.

I drove the car about ten miles yesterday. No codes it did shift a little hard I need to reset the adaptive learning.
It handled good pretty darn tight and It ran good.
