Re: 2001 Saturn L300 (L81/3.0L V6) - Pre-Question for Head Gasket DIY Replacement

If you have no coolant contamination in your oil, you have NO blown head gasket causing coolant leak.

If you had a leak in your water pump, it would progress quickly. They don't leak for long...

Re: 2001 Saturn L300 (L81/3.0L V6) - Pre-Question for Head Gasket DIY Replacement

What evidence do you have to determines you need to replace your head gaskets? Is there a symptom... is there foam in your oil? Are you blowing blue clouds out the exhaust? Why do you believe you...

Re: 2001 Saturn L300 (L81/3.0L V6) - Pre-Question for Head Gasket DIY Replacement

Cam Covers or Valve Covers... same thing and NO, I didn't replace any cam seals because they are not where you are looking in the photo. I already told you numerous times your spark plugs were...

Re: 2001 Saturn L300 (L81/3.0L V6) - Pre-Question for Head Gasket DIY Replacement

OMFG

The Valve Covers are a common term for the upper end "covers" that cover and seal the top of the engine above each bank of valves. They are a common place for oil to leak from. See photo...

Re: 2001 Saturn L300 (L81/3.0L V6) - Pre-Question for Head Gasket DIY Replacement

I don't know how, but you really need to "measure" the crankcase pressure to determine if you really can stop oil from leaking! New gaskets will not prevent oil leaks from returning in a few months...

Re: 2001 Saturn L300 (L81/3.0L V6) - Pre-Question for Head Gasket DIY Replacement

I tried editing my response, but the site locked up. So I am pasting it over again so ignore the redundant parts.

You need to remove upper intake, the middle intake and the lower intake. The...

Re: 2001 Saturn L300 (L81/3.0L V6) - Pre-Question for Head Gasket DIY Replacement

You need to remove upper intake, the middle intake and the lower intake. The valve covers will come off with the timing belt completely installed. Just be careful to not drop debris inside the...

Re: 2001 Saturn L300 (L81/3.0L V6) - Pre-Question for Head Gasket DIY Replacement

I believe the cams can literally only be installed in a certain position. They are keyed or something like that. But, if you watch the guy install the new timing belt, none of the cams are resting...

Re: 2001 Saturn L300 (L81/3.0L V6) - Pre-Question for Head Gasket DIY Replacement

I changed the timing belt, put it back together and the water pump went out, so I had to redo everything on the front of the engine again, then the car started puking oil out of every gasket. I then...

Re: 2001 Saturn L300 (L81/3.0L V6) - Pre-Question for Head Gasket DIY Replacement

There are likely dozens of degrees the cam locks will fit. Don't get fixated on the 60 degree mark. T.D.C. is the only meaningful location when changing the belt.

I would NOT remove any locks...

Re: 2001 Saturn L300 (L81/3.0L V6) - Pre-Question for Head Gasket DIY Replacement

In your photo, it shows the plastic wiring enclosure is still in place. Disconnect that and move it out of the way.
