I have the service manual. If you would like, I can either scan a few pages
You can order your own manual either from Saturn parts or www.helminc.com
Either way, it runs about $140 usd for the print copy (5 binders and 25
pounds) and $300 on CR rom (from helm only).
For that matter, I have the 6-cyl engine and don't need the manual for the
2000-2001 4-banger. make me an offer? I'm near NY city.

I thought the OP was referring to the timing belt?
Still, I would never attempt changing a major engine component without a
shop manual. Even with a manual there are so many places to go horribly

There is a procedure for lining everything up. The cam sprocket and
crank sprocket should have markings for being lined up. There may be
special tools involved. I dont have anything that covers Ecotecs though.
One still needs a service manual and a good torque wrench reguardless
which scares me if someone is asking about this. Sounds to me that the
engine originally starved for oil.
Probably was starved for oil. My bad. However, having the wrong oil filter
in the car for two minutes until I decided that the car was not going to
start pumping oil should not cause major engine problems. Yes I should have
realized that the oil filter was wrong even though the one I purchased was
for my make and model according to Auto Zone. Yes I should have the engine
manual but like everthing else about Saturn it was a rip off. I thought
somebody out there could give me the procedure for lining up the timing
chain. As it turned out it wasn't that hard. I didn't need to spend another
$140 for the engine manual, I didn't need to pay this guy oppie for some
scanned pages and I certainly didn't need to be told that a DIS ignition
doesn't need to be set.
Uh, Excuse me please but I was offering to scan a few pages for you for
free. Sorry if I didn't communicate that effectively. What I was offering
for sale was the 2000 or 2001 shop manual for the 4 cylinder engine only. As
I wrote, I have the V6 and have no need of the other manual. The service
manual comes in 5 binders with two model years per binder. One binder was
for the 4-banger, another for V6 (L81) and others for chassis...
In any event glad that things seem to have worked out OK. Please don't say
'farewell', Anybody that can change a cylinder head surely has something to
contribute to the group that can help others. It is mostly a good give and

You don't think running an engine without oil for 2 minutes won't
cause major engine problems? Think again....
You should have made your question more clear. Oppie as well as Mr.
Hancock are well respected, knowledgable posters here. In your
original post it was ambigous as to whether you were in fact looking
to set ignition timing or camshaft timing. We all know that you don't
set ignition timing on these engines, but some people may not know -
especially someone who put the wrong oil filter on his engine and
seized the cam. That is why Robert posted the way he did.
In all, I wouldn't get all pissed off and leave. These guys were
trying to help you.
