Thank you very much for the tip! I have the skill level to do the job but have not had the time. Thanks to the economic downturn time will be available! The labor costs at the Saturn dealership in Houston are horrendous and they have you by the short hairs as it's very crowded under the hood, requires special tools, etc. I had to have the tensioner for the timing belt replaced as well as the water pump. $1,500 up in thin air but for me to do it would have required missing work, renting tools, a tree and hoist as I think pulling the motor might have been about as pratical!
