  3. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Had the timing chain changed 1.5 year ago after having dealt with the sludge issue. The chain has been quiet since, but is now rattling again when cold. I dropped the sump, which was completely clean, and took out the timing chain tensioner, which was only extended to 9 mm. I am kind of...

    Hi, My balancer chain (and timinng chain) has stretched too much. Balancer chain stretched so much that it ate into the timing cover and made a hole in the oil passageway in the timing cover to the oil pump :eek:. I was getting a low oil pressure warning at low revs and when turning right. Am...
  6. Saab 99, 90 (1969 - 1984)
    I have saab 99 1773 model with 2 litre engine. I replaced the head gasket because it was leaking. It runs fine but when it is cold the timing chain is noisy. Once the car warms up the slack noise from the timing chain disappears. Why is this? What can we do?
  7. New Saab 9-5 (2010 - on)
    Just had service done at 78k, and just wondered if there is any work I should have done to ensure the car will run great for the coming years. Does the Saab have a timing chain or belt? And what is the recommended mileage to have replaced?
  8. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Just an fyi post really folks in case someone is interested. When I was renewing the timing chain and guides ( engine in car) bit of a job but thats another story, I decided that I would remove the balance system due to a fear of failure. I left the shafts in bored and tapped a grub screw just...

  15. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    After taking a 250-mile trip back to Blacksburg, Virginia, my car sounded a little exhausted. There was very loud rattling from the timing cover, so I investigated. I whipped out the timing chain tensioner (after taking out the plug), and with no surprise, it was one or two notches away from...

  17. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Hi Just when I thought things settled down, the Carlson has an issue! Its been driving fine but I noticed, out of the blue, that the engine was noisy. On further investigation, it sounded like timing chain. I've had a closer look and it looks to be the case. The car has done 114,000 and had a...
  18. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hi guys, I am looking at a very nice clean 2006 9-5 with 116k. Guy is asking $4500, it has a headlight and brakelight out, and drivers seat adjustment panel is loose-but that seems to be about it. It drives solid, shifts smoothly (automatic)-I'm really loving it. Only unnerving thing was a...
  19. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hello, What does timing chain rattle sound like ? Does it make the engine sound a little like a diesel ? How likely is it that a 2001 Aero that's done 139,00 miles with 10,000 mile oil change intervals would have it ? Thanks for any advice you may offer.
  20. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Hi, Positioned crankshaft (cyl 1) and camshafts at timing positions, but engine doesn't start. Could be 180 degr out? Wondering how the ECU knows when to ignite, given that that are two revolutions per full cycle. The crank sensor will tell when getting to TDC, but one is the compression, the...
