Saturn S series engines seem to be very confusing to many folks. Even seasoned professional mechanics have trouble explaining the differences between an SL-1 and an SL-2 Saturn engine. It’s actually not that difficult to figure out, and we will have an easy solution for you in a second. However, if you are looking for a remanufactured Saturn S Engine for sale, you are definitely in the right place.
This does not have to be long or confusing post. As long as you know what year the car is and have your VIN (vehicle identification number) available, we can locate your engine in a snap. The VIN is on your registration. It is also on the drivers side door on the end, where the lock is, and on the left front dash near the windshield.
The difference between an SL-1 and an SL-2 is that the SL-1 is a SOHC (single overhead camshaft engine) and the SL-2 is a DOHC (double overhead camshaft engine). The three engines offered in that particular Saturn until discontinued in 2002 were the 1.9L: LKo l4 L24 l4, and the LLo l4. Which are all straight/inline-4 cylinder aluminum gasoline engines produced by General Motors. The engine was only used in the Saturn S-series line of vehicles (SL, SC, SW) from 1991 through 2002. It was available in chain-driven SOHC or DOHC variations.
With your new found information in mind, one of the most effective and affordable ways to solve a replacement engine problem is a fresh, remanufactured engine, prepared to meet and exceed the ARPA (American Remanufactured Parts Association) standards. These are standardized remanufacturing guidelines that any reputable remanufacturer should follow.
The importance of re-manufacturing to certain standards can not be overstated. A cheap poorly remanufactured engine is a poor value and will cost more in the long run. The quality of the parts and the machine work involved must be at least factory original or better, otherwise you may experience another failure right out of warranty.
