    I was on my way down the highway when my I started losing speed and gave it a little more gas and then the boost gauge read full boost but my rpms was still low. The engine was getting a little warm that day too. right after that I put the car in neutral and it stalled. I put it in gear to start...

    Hi. Apologies for my first post on here being a 'sale' thread! ;) I've basically inherited this 9000 and although I'm very impressed with it, two other cars (including one money pit project car) means that I cant realistically justify holding onto it. I'd prefer it to go to a Saab...

  14. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    I finally got my Haynes manual from Amazon after nearly two months - and two backorder notices. Directions to replace the timing and balance shaft chains are good but I was disappointed that there doesn't seem to be any definative inspection or wear decriptions such as pass/fail. I bought my...

A regular maintenance hopefully should help to extend the life of the auto box. So, I asked some Saab mechanics to change the auto box oil on my '93 9000, one said that...

  18. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    What are the differences between the 2.3L LPT and the 2.3L HOT engines, other than the turbo and the ECU? I still have to put in a drilled out oil trap in my 2.3L LPT to see if it'll stop the smoke-on-startup issue, but if it doesn't and I have to replace the turbo, I'm wondering what options I...
  19. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
