The Saturn L-Series was only produced from 2000 to 2005. Being sold under the General motors name. The L-Series was available with straight-4 and V6 engines with either 5-speed manual or 4-speed automatic transmissions. The replacement for the L-Series, the Saturn Aura, arrived in August 2006 for the 2007 model year. Having only 2 engine options makes it easy to stock new Saturn L-Series engines for sale.
The two engines offered were; 2.2 L L61 Ecotec Inline 4 cylinder engine, referred to as the L61. First appearing in the 2000 Saturn LS1, the L61 spread throughout North American GM products, replacing the Quad 4 and its descendants.
And the 3.0 L L81 V6, designated the L81 was used longitudinally [front to back, rear wheel drive] in the Cadillac Catera and transversely [front wheel drive; east to west mounting] in the Saturn L-Series, Saturn Vue and Saab 9000.

When I’m asked about replacement engines for L-Series Saturn’s, my immediate answer surprises people. Buy a new engine for sale. Why, the price, the pricing on new crated engines is remarkably low, thus making this an option worth talking about. I don’t have anything to do with the pricing or remanufacturing side. I am a hands on guy though, and for a bit more than a used engine one can own a new engine.
Since the L-Series was only produced for five full years, we get requests for new remanufactured engines more than the other options. My theory on this matter is that a car that is at the most 10 years old and in good shape deserves a new crate engine. Why compromise when the cost makes this so desirable. Not only that, Saturn owners want the best replacement parts for their cars.
With the above thoughts in mind, make a point out of calling and speaking with a team representative on all of the benefits of a new engine. We have new remanufactured engines already in crates ready for immediate shipment. Call now and find out if your new engine ships for free.
