Sometimes, to get an accurate status of the engine condition, you need to performed a cylinder leakage test for the engine.

Any reading higher than this can indicate a faulty cylinder valve which otherwise cannot be detected during routine engine check ups.
You can get a one on one online assistance on the above tests so you can do it properly. This is especially important when you need to know the various Saturn engine specifications which you need to conduct the test. Feel free to leave your other ATS questions on the comment box below.
