  • Engine Rebuild or Gasket Kit?

    I'm pretty much looking for the gasket kit for the entire motor, block and head, if i have to get a whole rebuild kit i will. The problem is, even with the wonders of google I still can't come across one for my 01 DOHC. I came close and found one site with kits up to 98 but nothing else. any ideas? I know they are out there, but where is the question.

    Your local dealership will have them, or can order them.

      I would rather not pay dealer pricing if possible

        best place for it, beleive it or not. I got most of my rebuild kit at dealer and I did not spend that much. Plus it's actual GM Saturn parts so its good

              I just rebuilt mine. I picked up bearings, rings and a felpro headgasket from SDA. The prices were good (I did shop around) and shipped fast. I had to pick up a felpro rear main seal locally at vatozone, I think it was.

              I opted to go with the Saturn timing chain kit replacement though and pay the extra bucks. I have not heard many great things about the aftermarket timing stuff.

                Complete OEM Saturn timing chain kit for like, $141 something from saturnparts. It's not listed, you need to order via part number. Someone's got it somewhere.

                  oops, i just got an aftermarket timing chain... keeping the oem tensioner, which, as far as in know the AM tensioners are the problem...

                  but, on topic, I got my gasket kit from ebay, like 220 shipped. included rings that i didnt use tho. beware however, my intake manifold gasket was fucked up. i say go dealer, dont cheap out like me.

                    i paid about $100 for a 98 overhaul kit from the dealer, but that was with my discount, you can prolly get it for about the same on saturnparts if they have it listed or if you know the PN

                      Actually, for all the gaskets you get with the complete kit, it ias actually slightly cheaper to buy them that way than to get all of them aftermarket. You get new intake, exhaust man gaskets, valve seals, head gasket, rear seal, TB gasket, egr gasket, oil galley plugs, etc. buy them all seperately, even aftermarket, costs slightly more.
                      OMG. I own too many saturns. Help me RAWR.
