  2. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    I have just checked the engine oil in my 2002 Saab 95 Vector 2.0t and it had white scum on the dipstick. The oil and filter was changed just over two weeks ago so I was surprised to find any white scum. It generally does shorts trips but had done a few longer runs over Christmas and I would...

    Hi, was hoping someone could give some advise on this issue i am having. I have a Saab 2008 with an Infotainment Plus Sat Nav system but it is not working. When pressing Sat Nav it comes up with checking Disc and it never completes the check, it sounds like the unit and disc are spinning...

    '03 9-5 Aero. Is the oil level meant to be checked with the dipstick fully screwed home, or just resting against the spring? I've always done it with it just against the spring, which must be a fail-safe, but is it right? BOF

    Hi. I have a 53 plate 93 2.0T 210 BHP aero SS which has been great upto now. The radio has stopped working (can't turn it on) so I checked fuses and they all looked okay. Car was running ok still at this stage. After looking on the forum it looks likely that it may be the amp1 under the...

    I was giving my car its pre-winter "once over" yesterday and found that the upper door seals (ie the ones fitted to the car not the doors) were full of gunge. I thought it would be easier to clean them off the car so removed them. It was then that I noticed that the metal lip they attach to was...

    I want to check the front pads on my 2004 2.2tid for wear, but can't see if the inner pad is worn. The outer pad looks hardly worn. Is this an indication of the wear on the inner pad?

    Do you check the oil level on the SAAB engines (mine's a B235R) with the dipstick fully screwed/twisted down, or just resting on the top of the filler neck? I've forgotten........ BOF (Forty years of bodging, and getting too old for it now!)

    Is this supposed to be done with the engine running or stopped?

    Hi all, I have a 97 Saab 9000 FPT Turbo. Just found this site. Currently is at its standard 200 bhp (doesnt really feel that fast), but have a company called Saabflight near me that seems very good so hopefully will have it mildly modified (50bhp increase only) shortly. Great to see such an...
  12. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Hello, As you've guessed I have an "ABS light always on" problem on my '95 9000 CSE. I've cleaned them out without any noticeable event. All of them seems to be fine after the sanitary work on them. Even so, the damn ABS light stays on after that. Reading topics about ABS problems here and...
  13. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    I have a 2.3 Auto (2000/X), recently I've been getting a gearbox oil leak from the unions into the gearbox oil cooler up by the radiator. These unions have now been tightened up and I'm keeping an eye on the oil level (and any fresh oil around the cooler). Now the manual says check the oil when...

New drivebelt 2. New oil and oil filter (Castrol Edge 0w-40). 3) New DI Cartridge 4) New...

    My checking boings appear to have disappered, any ideas?
  16. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Hi all I've had a problem with blown APCs and overboost for some time that I suspect is down to dodgy ECU MOSFETs. Before I undertake the scary task of changing the MOSFETs in the ECU, I jsut wnated to check that this really sounds like it is the problem. I have the classic symptoms of blown...
  17. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Aircon had stopped working on one of my 9000s. The compressor clutch was not coming on, at first I thought I'd needed a regas. However, I thought I'd check the pressure switch first. I removed the drivers side headlight to get better access to the pressure switch wiring and found it has four...
