Hello Saturntech and Wrenchtech, I need some quick and desperate help. I have a 2001 Saturn SL2 dohc that is about to throw a rod (if they still do that). Long story short, went to get an oil change, they knocked the pcv loose, oil went everywhere, my daughter was unaware and the rest is history. I have called around and a motor replacement is $1000, I know these cars are considered "throw aways" but I don't really have the kinda cash flow to either replace the motor OR throw it away. What else do "I" need to do to fix this myself besides change out the bearings? Or is there a good reference book that will tell me "exactly" what I need to do. I'm one of those females that knows just enough about motors to be dangerous but not enough to be Ms. Goodwrench. Thanks so much for your time!
