Just to add to that one the only bcm that will work on your 2001 L model V6 is a 2001 L model V6 engine. On the L model saturns it has to be the same year and has to be the same engine size as well. Also you need to be aware that the bcm has the mileage in it so changing the bcm will change the mileage. What ever mileage the donor car has on it your car will then have the same mileage. Your best bet is to get a new one and have the dealer replace it and program in the correct mileage and calibrations options etc. If you want I know of a good place to get a new bcm.

Thats good just make sure you report the mileage change to the dmv and tell them why there was a mileage change.

The car seems to idle low and want to stall, there is a piece missing that attaches from the exhaust manifold to the intake manifold and I would like to know what its called. I went to Auto zone and they had no idea.

Thats what I thought its the egr tube that runs from the exhaust manifold to the egr valve. Pick a part www. Parts. Com I would go to that site and get the phone number call them and tell them you want the egr tube like I said. Also the dealer or ebay.

Thanks for all your help. The part was there, I didn't see it. The tube moved up to screw it in, I didn't realize it. However, I took the battery out to charge it over night and now the car won't start so I don't know if that has something to do with it. I'm frustrated now so I'm getting it towed to the dealership. I'm thinking the new bcm does need to be programmed.
