Saturn Repair Problems? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
As far as the P1101 code goes it sounds to me like the intake camshaft actuator solenoid. Here are the steps to diagnose this part:
1. Remove the intake camshaft actuator solenoid.2. Inspect screen and plastic retainer for damage.3. If so, replace, clear codes, road test.4. If the screen is "blown out", replace the intake camshaft actuator solenoid, run engine with a cleaner in the crankcase, such as Automatic Transmission Fluid (ATF), in an attempt to clear out sludge that may be present within the engine oil passages.
The oil passage on this part can be easily clogged with debris (once I saw a piece of the plastic oil filter make its way in there somehow). If it becomes restricted it will not change the timing like it should and will cause the P1101 code to set.
The second code could be related, but I would need to know the actual code # ***** than the description if that it possible, please.
