Question about 1993 Saturn SL2
You have to take off the valve pan cover, upper motor mount suport, disconnect power steering pump...you don't need to take it out, just move it out of the way. You will need to take the wheel off of the passager side and take off the plastic covers, take the belt off and the tensioner pully all the way off. then you have access to the timing chain cover. You have 4 bolts on the bottom (oil pan) that are 10mm, 1 bolt in the middle that is 8mm and several on the side of the timing chain cover that is 10mm.You might want to take and support the motor with a hydraulic jack and take the bottom motor mount loose. You will need to take off the harmonic ballancer before you can gain access to the cover, it may require a pulley to get it off. The pump is on the cover, but it requires a torx wrench to get the screws out.You will need an impact driver tool that is hit with a hammer to get them loose; The seal will need to be replaced on that shaft. You will need to sand the surface with fine sand paper on the cover and the block to get a good seal. Use RTV and finger tighten the bolts and let it set about 30 minutes before tightening all the way for a better seal. While you are there you might want to consider the timing chain if it has never been done. If you decide to do that and need any more information for timing marks let me know. A note of importance that most oil pressure is lost due to wear on the main bearings, not a bad oil pump.

Yes, The oil ring goes between the timing cover and the engine block. There are two. You will need to remove the timing cover again and re insert the oil ring into the block.

The Saturn Fuel pump relay and fuse is located undar the panes on the passenger side of the center console near the passengers left foot there are two relays there that look identical one is fuel pump relay.

These engines have a timing chain, not a belt. They also have nylon coated guides under the cover that wear. If you change the chain yourself, or have it done, check the guides as well.
