  1. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    I am working on a 2001 9-5; I have been reading up on engine removal, service manual say take out engine from bottom. There is a thread here that talks about taking the engine out the top. I decided on top removal, after removing all electrical and hanging from the wipers, removed fuel injection...
  2. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Well, I've noticed the noise of the turbo spooling up over the past few weeks, whereas before I hadn't noticed it at all. Now on the commute to work, I spotted some white/grey smoke out of the exhaust, which I last experienced on my MK1 9000. Thought it was the turbo and by the end of the...

    Following on from my first and only other question posted so far (about a humming/droning noise) I spent a most pleasurable afternoon on the M5 yesterday with my 9-5 2.0lpt caput with no oil. I was enjoying a sunday drive back from South Wales, cruising up the M5 in the direction of Leicester...

    In the 10 months I have had my 2003 9-3 SS I must have replaced the head light bulb on the N/S 3 times & once on the O/F. Always very cafeful when fitting & after 20 years think I should just about know the do's & don'ts about handling the bulbs. Question being: has anyone else had similar...

    Well, EnG took it in the shorts yesterday in Dallas with my “new” 1999 9-5 SE losing the belt during the morning commute. Again, thanks to French’s for getting me on track in about 5 hours with a clean bill of health and a new engine mount and a new belt. Again, I love the internet — I knew...
  14. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    I have just bought another project - a 1997 2.0LPT Anniversary. The car is in great condition but there is one problem - apparently the breather that goes from the camshaft cover to the inlet manifold blew off at the camshaft cover end and after that a knock started up in the engine. I haven't...

  16. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    I'm pretty sure my self-diagnosis is correct Went to give the Aero a bit of squirt tonight, and after a second or so was treated to not very much acceleration, no nasty noises or bangs and and almighty cloud of bluish smoke out of the back of the car. Stopped and there's a steady stream of the...

  18. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Yesterday I got the bad news, after only 10,000 miles of Saab motoring my beloved Aero is a non-runner. The gear box is shot, and recovered to the main dealer. A lovely bank holiday, but no car to pamper. It’s a miserable day for me. Now I am just waiting to see what Saab will do in relation to...
  19. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Well chaps lets hope this is the low spot of 2007 for me and my beloved MY96 9k cse! I had noticed the tell-tale dreaded white smoke on start-up just prior to christmas and fully intended to have it checked out asap. Unfortunately asap was not asap enough as coolant started forcing its way out...
