Saturn Repair Problems? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello, my name is ***** ***** I'm here to help get your problem solved.
Sounds like a possible timing chain issue, what engine do you have?
These engines are common for timing chain problems but it is fairly easy to replace yourself. I'd recommend a compression test, if compression is below 100 psi on any cylinder then replacing chain chain, tensioners, and guides. The kit is available on ebay for around $70. Let me know if you have more questions, thanks.
All you need is a compression tester which you can buy from parts store for around $20. Then it screws into spark plug hole, you crank engine for about 3-5 seconds, and then look at reading on gauge. Let me know if you have questions, thanks.
No problem, you can reply to this answer at any time without additional fees so make sure to let me know if you need anything. Thanks again and have a good night!
Good to hear, let me know how it goes. Thanks.
That would probably work, anything at this point is going to be a bit of a rig job but should still be fine. I think they have something at parts store specifically to help restore worn threads.
As long as all the timing marks are lining up there shouldn't be a issue. Did you buy new chain and sprockets?
