Re: Where to start with trying to make a 2002 Saturn L200 faster

Honestly your best bet is to sell it and buy something else that has potential for upgrades.

Re: 2001 Saturn L300 - v6 3.0 Liter - Timing Belt Kit + Camshaft + Crankshaft Seals

From my experience the " keys" only insure you are close.
In you timing belt tool kit should be an aluminum plate that will fit inside the 2 cam sprockets.
It will have a couple of scribed lines...

Re: 4 Cyl. Ecotec Oil Pan Gasket.

Thank you for the input.
Do you put a small bead on the inside edge of the pan as i have read ?
Or do you apply it down the middle?

4 Cyl. Ecotec Oil Pan Gasket.

What is the recommended way to seal the oil pan when reinstalling?
After removing the pan I see little or no sign of sealant.

Re: 2001 Saturn L300 - v6 3.0 Liter - Timing Belt Kit + Camshaft + Crankshaft Seals

If you are still planning on replacing the crankshaft seal you should do that before spending any more time on the timing belt.
The belt will need to be removed to replace the seal.
I believe you...

Re: 2001 Saturn L300 - v6 3.0 Liter - Timing Belt Kit + Camshaft + Crankshaft Seals

You are correct about the pulleys.
I am concerned you mentioned the Kent Moore tool.
It has nothing to do with the timing belt installation. Use the locking toll that came in your kit.
You call it...

Re: 2001 Saturn L300 - v6 3.0 Liter - Timing Belt Kit + Camshaft + Crankshaft Seals

To adjust the idler pulleys, you loosen the retaining bolt slightly.
Then you rotate the eccentric center of the pulley.
It is a hex shape.
Your Camshaft Tool kit probably has an offset box end...

Re: 2001 Saturn L300 - v6 3.0 Liter - Timing Belt Kit + Camshaft + Crankshaft Seals

Read my description of where the pulleys are located,
What you are describing sounds like the spring loaded tensioner pulley.

Re: 2001 Saturn L300 - v6 3.0 Liter - Timing Belt Kit + Camshaft + Crankshaft Seals

The eccentric pulleys are the idler pulleys that came with your timing belt kit.
The timing belt rides on these.
One is located between crankshaft and cam sprockets 3&4.
The other is located...

Re: 2001 Saturn L300 - v6 3.0 Liter - Timing Belt Kit + Camshaft + Crankshaft Seals

From what I can tell from your photos, when the crankshaft is at TDC your cam sprocket timing marks are not aligned with the timing cover marks. They appear to be off a slight amount. If I am correct...

Re: 2001 Saturn L300 - v6 3.0 Liter - Timing Belt Kit + Camshaft + Crankshaft Seals

At this point I would rotate the engine CCW about 90 degrees. Then rotate it CW to engage the crankshaft lock against the water pump.
As a precaution...
