Not something for the inexperienced or Saturday afternoon, shade tree, mechanic to tackle. It's a big job. Honestly, for what the job will cost you can get another, newer, car. HTH. -Jim

You can purchase a chiltons manual which will have the long procedure spelled out, removing almost the whole top end of the car and pulleys. The book also has all torque values for the bolts listed. Have you done work on your car before, have all the necessary tools? Here is are some videos describing the process....https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yH0gHdnM1cE.....https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UHj4iHThY2k

If you do plan on replacing it, make sure that you get the correct head gasket as the early Saturn blocks had an oil restrictor in the block and eventually changed the headgasket to include the restrictor. If you use the wrong HG or don't remove the restrictor from the block, you'll end up starving the head of oil.
