    You need one of the following, engine block, short block or a complete engine. Never had any luck with repairing late model engine blocks that have froze and busted. Years ago, maybe!

    Thanks for the answer, I'm in Okla. and there are apparently few Saturn's available here. Where would I buy a block, and how do I know if its short block, or engine block? No book with it.
