NEED SOMETHING CALLED A FUEL INJECTOR DRIVER MODULE?

Hi yes can someone tell me what this part may be and where it is located on a 1993 SC-Series 2dr Coupe 1.9 Liter engine with just OHC-Over Head Cam or what is know as SOHC-Single Over Head Cam.
This Saturn SC 1 2dr Coupe has 158,000 miles on it to date 05/08/2007. And is an automatic 4 cyc transmission
Ok first we encountered the " Service Engine Soon light coming on after 40mph only? Then when went to check the oil level we had smelled fuel on the oil dipstick. So decided we should take it in for a oil change and then they did a diagnostic test using codes. In which the codes came up the only thing being bad is something called a " Fuel Injector Driver Module" is what the mechanic is calling it. This is not to be confused with a pressure regulator. This module is control when the fuel injectors are to open and close.
And at this time they are stuck all the way open, which is supposed to be allowing the fuel to go into oil crankcase possibly?
So other than straight through a Saturn Dealer, I have been unable to find information on where this part is located, what it looks like, and if we can indeed find either a good used module at a local auto salvage yard, or maybe a aftermarket, or remanufactured replacement.
Since this test, we have not continued to drive the car, because I know that if you fuel-gas gets in with oil it can break down the velocity of the oil which in return can cause oil to not be able to lubricate engine and may cause the engine to lock up.
So if someone can please tell me what it is we are looking for i.E. Photo of part and where it goes.
They also said anything can put this part on in about 45 minutes?
Well sorry so long here, but tried to explain the best I could : roll:
Thanks and hope to hear back from someone real soon. Especially before we go shell out close to $500 for this module, if we indeed dont have too.
Run from that shop. Never heard of such a thing. Not listed in my manual or available from saturn.
Have the codes read for free from an autozone or such and let us know. I'd bet either a sticky injector (try fuel injector cleaner(chevron with techron) in a tank of gas) or a leaky o-ring (replace o-ring) at the injector.
