My son has a 96 Saturn SC1 with 80,000 miles. It started drinking lots of oil and leaking it out of the radiator overflow tank. No coolant was in the engine oil. I have read that Saturn had a defect in the manufacture of these heads and this problem is common. We have replaced the cracked cylinder head and flushed the cooling system several times. The car never ran hot and it should run good now but it has a bad misfire. The trouble code is P0300, multicylinder misfire. My question is. Did we get the timing chain back on right? I thought we did but I can't seem to find any other reason for it to misfire. Would the car run at all if I was one tooth off on the chain? Is there any way to check it without taking it back apart? OK that was several questions but I need a little help with this one. Any suggestions? Thanks.
