change your plugs and wires. That should do it.

saturn s series cars have no camshaft position sensor. this code is caused by corrosion on the ignition control module and coil packs which are located on the front of the engine, towards the bottom. Remove coils, plug wires, ignition control module, lightly sand any electrical contact points, inspect spark plugs(check gap .040") and wires as alex stated, then re assemble. problem should go away.

Start with the simple things first. I had this happen to my daughters 99 SL. It was caused by a single plug wire that had popped up 1/8". The car was running rough and had trouble at highway speed and hills Once the plug wires were snugged, the CEL went off, the car ran fine and that was the end of it.
