    Had a Chevy dealer (Still does Saab work) in Springfield MO USA diagnose a metal clunking sound as a broken spring. Quoted 800.00 US dollars to do the work for both side of the front. It seems as all the threads on this were pre-2012. I am sure they won't do the work for free now. Is there a...

    I have removed the DIC from my engine following the non-starting of the engine (See my other thread), I have found that one of the four prongs that the spark plugs fit to has come away from the DIC assembly, it actually was still fitted to the one spark plug when I removed the DIC from the...

    heard a bit of knocking from front, had a look on here, seems quite a common issue and I thought it was a bush or something similar. Turns out front drivers side spring is broken. Question is where is the best place (uk) to find them quickly, my usual parts supplier cannot get them for four to...

    While replacing some tubing on the top left of the direct ignition I broke the plastic piece which receives two separate rubber tubes. I am trying to figure out what this part is and if I need to replace it, or possibly use some sort of sealing tape. Any help would be huge on this. Its a 1995...

    Well removed cd player today and attempted to remove CD. The mechanism was broken as descibed in some of the threads Ive read and I wasnt able to remove the CD, so Ive given up on that and think I will go down the AUX cable installation instead. This process looks fairly straightfoward but...

    Hi, Positioned crankshaft (cyl 1) and camshafts at timing positions, but engine doesn't start. Could be 180 degr out?
