1998 SL
Default Is an EFI/OHC a SOHC or DOHC?

Pardon my ignorance guys, but I went to see if my 98 Saturn SL had a twin cam engine and I looked in my manual but couldn't find any info on it. The inside of my hood says the engine is an EFI/OHC.

However, my engine was rebuilt with some engine with 50,000 miles on it (compared to hte old one with 90,000). So I suppose that nullifies my question, but for the sake of my knowledge, could anyone fill my noob-ness in?

Much appreciated,

-Russell98SL

You can tell by lookin at it.

SOHC has the spark plugs and ignition wires going into the front side of the engine above the exhaust mainfold. Spark plugs are on an angle.

DOHC has the spark plugs and ignition wires going into the top of the valve cover(between the two cams). Spark plugs are vertical.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
