Step-by-Step DIY timing chain kit installation
Showing how I installed my timing chain kit on my engine. This can be done with the engine in the car by removing the accessories, mounts, valve cover, etc. Although this is for a Saturn S-Series much of the concepts will translate to other vehicles too. Even if you are conducting this repair in your car the visualizations shown here may help you better understand the project where filth and limited access may prevent you from seeing everything well in your car. This car is for my 1995 SW2 using a block from a 1997 SL2 and a rebuilt head. This is how I did it and what I learned. Information may or may not be accurate. Be sure to set engine to 90 degreest past #1 Top Dead Center prior to rotating your camshafts. Once your camshafts are in the correct position pin them in place to prevent movement, turn crank counter clockwise to number one TDC. Everything is now in the correct position to install the timing chain. After installing everything double check all marks and positions then unpin the timing sprockets and release the tensioner retainer. Verify the tensioner plunger extends. Be sure to lubricate everything prior to closing up. Here is a photo detailing all of the fasteners I had to remove when I first did a timing kit with the engine IN the car: http://www.mainejunker.com/dosumpthin/saturn/pics/95sw2_timing_fasteners.jp g 1991-1998 Cars use a different timing kit than 1999-2001 model years. The procedure is very similar though. I am using a PCI brand timing chain kit model TS13126 which includes... 1 Timing Chain 1 Tensioner 2 Chain Guides 2 Camshaft Sprokets 1 Crank Sprocket 1 Top Chain Guide While your timing cover is off you might consider checking the oil pump which is located in the timing cover. Be sure the oil seals on each side of the crank are still in place prior to installing the timing cover. When installing the timing cover clean all mating surfaces well and use a suitable RTV sealant or equivalent. I used the following torque specs: Top chain guide 14nm (8mm bolt x 2) Cam Sprockets 74 ft lbs (15mm bolt, 1 per Sprocket) Fixed chain guide 26nm (10mm bolt x 3) Pivoting chain guide 26nm (10mm bolt x 1) be sure under bolt head is clean Tensioner 14nm (10mm bolt x 2)

Saturn No Start Case Study (featuring Beau Danner)
Join me and my son Beau on a field trip to Latorres Auto. He is 8 years old, loves fixing things and has been begging to come with me on one of my jobs. Of course he wanted to be on camera too. This is the third car we worked on together. Cars one and two will be a combined video and I will upload that as soon as I finish some follow up video on the repair. Here is the video on VRS Bypass Testing http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fra26yyyc-I Visit my website, www.scannerdanner.com for more about my eBook and lectures.
