Saturn LW300 Timing Belt

Discussion in 'Saturn L-series' started by Robert Rolleston, Feb 1, 2009.

  1. I was wondering if anyone had anything that they could send me showing me
    how to change the timing belt. I'm a heavy equipment mechanic and have
    many tools plus access to more. Any help would be appreciated.

    I admire your moxie for wanting to undertake this yourself. I've changed
    timing belts before but when I read what was required to do this one (mine
    is an '01 lw300), I gladly paid a shop to do it. I have a buddy with an
    independent shop who charged me $600 to do the water pump and timing belt.

    You need tools to clamp the two dohc in position before the belt is
    loosened. Another tool goes on the crank (iirc) for angle setting. There are
    two tensioners and the relation between them sets the cam timing.

    If you really want to read about it, give me your email or a binaries group
    to post on. I can scan the ten or so pages later this week. It's a pain
    getting the engine book on the flatbed scanner but not as big a pain as
    working on this motor.

    Do you have access to ? Some
    providers carry it. It's a binaries group and would be a good place to post

  4. Yes I do have access.  If you wouldn't mind sending me the copies so I can
    check them out.

    Thank you,

    Will probably scan my 2000/2001 manual section on the timing belt on
    Thursday. What year is your car? This is the L81 engine?
    Any scans I do, I prefer to post to a binaries group where they can be
    widely utilized. Heck, I made a post some years ago about the "on board
    radio diagnostic". You can still google for it. As I approach 60, I'll take
    any degree of immortality that I can get <G>
