Saturn Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello and thank you for using Just Answer
I am attaching the full procedure for removing and replacing the timing belt
click here to view the procedure
let me know if you need more help
the camshaft and crankshaft alignment is shown in the procedure
you do not need a timing belt on the vehicle to align the marks
follow the procedure and you can align the crank and cams
you need to use the numbers on the cams to align the marks exhaust cam is #1 intake cam is #2
That is correct it should be 1 , 2 , 3 , 4
the belt can be installed without the special tools but is just more difficult.
I have seen some tech reports saying the crank should be at TDC and not 60 Degrees I am not sure why there is conflicting information in mitchell
are you guys setting the crank to TDC or 60?
yes the camshaft gears should line up 1 2 3 4 the corosponding marks yes
align the crank to the 60 using the 2 marks shown in the procedure I attached
please tell me the wire colors that go to the connector you are looking at
it has a weather shield, i havent seen the actual colors of the wires.. its a black plug with an orange rubber seal, it was ziptied to the fuel injectors cord. it hangs right in between the two heads, on the battery side. i wont be able to find out the colors till monday, once the shop reopens. it has slots for 2 prongs.
also, are there any indicators on the harmonic balancer to where 60 btdc is? or do i need to take that back off?
I won't be able to help you identify what it plugs into without the wire colors
I need to look at an engine performance schematic to identify what it plugs into
I am going to attach 3 diagrams for engine performance you will need to cut back the cover and get the wire colors so you can identify which sensor it plugs into

remember to click accept so I get credit for my answer
we can continue to communicate on monday if you have any more questions
i appreciate your help. i will probably be in touch next week.
checking into it now
I checked the entire engine performace schematic and there are no 2 wire sensors with green and blue wires
is the engine light on?
are all the gauges working?
it is not uncommon for the harness to have unused connectors depending on the options in the car
but I can tell you it is not for a computer control
are the wires solid green and blue? or is there other color striped on them?
does the connector look dusty? it is possible it was not being used
ok let me know what you have for a code and if you can find any striped on the wires or not
they are not part of the computerized engine controls.
as long as your charging system and AC and gauges are working I would not be very concerned about this connector
