It didn't come with the chain kit, it was in the Mahle timing cover gasket kit from Rock Auto. I'm leaning towards the Grey, the Mahle tube is hard at the bottom, I think it's got a hole in it. Or,...

Oil pan seal.

It's time to put the oil pan back on the engine now. What sealant to use, the Permatex Ultra Grey, or the sealant that came with the timing cover kit?

Re: Help! Timing Chain Cover

Well, this took way too long to accomplish, but the timing chain and cover are now installed correctly. Stepping back and reviewing the process, I had the pivoting guide in the wrong hole. It turns...

Re: Rear Disc Brakes?

I personally did that same swap years ago. I found the parts at a local pick and pull, everything bolted right up on my 2001. I'm sure you could buy all new parts and just get the caliper brackets....

Re: Help! Timing Chain Cover

Re: Help! Timing Chain Cover

Thanks for the replies, after stepping away from my frustration, I took the old crank gear and put it through the front side, like I had when trying to get the cover installed, it fit just fine, then...

Still in time?

In the interest of making my life easier, and the replacement engine last as long as possible, I am replacing the timing chain before I put the newer engine in the older car. I have a factory manual,...

Re: Is it time to move on?

After thinking about it for a couple of days now, I'm going to check out the $400 engine, swap it out, and do a rebuild on the original, depending on any block damage. I have been keeping an eye out...

Re: Seized A/C compressor?

Fdryer , thanks for the reply.

Seized A/C compressor?

So, my trusty old SC2 decided I don't want air conditioning any more. The car is mistaken, I am fond of not arriving to work in need of a shower. After sharing that, I am interested to see if anyone...

Re: change your fuel filters people

Currently I have 212k on my 01 SC2 with the factory filter and my gas mileage has just recently started to decline. Maybe it is time to replace mine.

Re: POLL: How many miles does your saturn have?

As of today, my 01 SC2 has 207,212 on the odometer. I just did the CarSaturn intake manifold repair last week. Happy to say not a drop of coolant has leaked since then. Over it's life it's needed a...

Re: Intake Manifold 2001 SL2
