  1. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    I am having problems with a leak on my 9.3. I have just replaced one of the heater hoses after seeing a leak. Everything i have put back on is dry. So i top it all up... squeeze the hoses to help get any trapped air out of the system... then drive for circa 3 to 4 miles and the coolant warning...

    Hello all, I thought this question had been answered but can't find it in the search. Can anyone please say whether the pre-facelift 9-5 has an aluminium radiator and whether it's safe to use the latest pink-coloured "G30" type antifreeze after a flush-through or whether one must really stick...

    Hi folks, The other day I noticed an alert on my sid saying the coolant level was low... I thought this was very strange... luckily enought I had just parked the car up and wasnt stuck in traffic. Anyway after getting out I noticed a puddle under the car.. topped it up and made it back home...
  6. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Quick question - is it easy to do on a 9000? I have a '95 Aero, usually get the dealer to do it, but they will charge £35+vat. How easy is it to do yourself? Do I need a ramp? Any advice appreciated!
  7. Classic Saab 900 (1979 - 1993)
    Hi Lately I'm topping up the coolant expansion tank more than ever on my turbo. After just a quick burn I notice the level drops slightly from the Max marker to just below. After a another burn and leaving it for a while coolant pees out somewhere from the nearside. It gets to the MIN marker...

    Does anybody know any other vehicles that share the same fuel injection system as a none turbo saab so I can go to a breakers and pick up a Coolant Temperature Sensor. Saab will sell me one but the nearest saab dealers is about 20 miles from me so i have to take time off work to get one.

    I seem to be loosing some coolant via the header tank cap on my '89 Turbo. Is this likely to be just a cap problem or signs of another malady. The car doesn't overheat.

  12. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    A few weeks ago SID told me to Fill Coolant Level, so I dutifully checked and it was fine. Recently it's said it again a few times, becoming more frequent/insistent, but I initially dismissed it as a duff sensor (temp is always fine). Last night I did check and it needed about a pint to top...

    Engine coolant reservoir and bonnet struts. I am seeking to remove the engine coolant reservoir so that I can clean the coolant level sensor mechanism. However, I cannot work out how the reservoir is attached to the engine bay. My Haynes Manual refers to a bolt but does not show an...

    My recently purchased 1994 Saab 9000 has a faulty engine coolant level sensor which constantly advises that I should check the coolant level. This warning indicator is coming on even though there is sufficent coolant in the system. Has any member replaced the sensor switch or tried to repair...
  15. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Hiya all, Just spent an unpleasant journey to work inhaling steam/smoke from the foot wells! Last night the warning light came on to say Check Radiator Level. There was no coolant in the system (undid all the hoses and there wasn't a drop to be found! Even took off the fase bulk head cover...
  16. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    I'd appreciate suggestions, please. I've read as many old threads as possible. I've owned my '92 9000 Turbo since new and it is running way hot. Even hotter than it used to. Needle getting just about up to the red. So, I've replaced the thermostat (82 degree) and the thermocontact 2 speed...

    I'm looking to drain and replace the coolant on my 1991 900i 16v. Can anyone direct me to the drain plug, as Haynes is not terribly specific. Thanks.

    Hi! Today morning when I sat into my car and turned the key in the SID is appeared: "fill coolant level". I checked it and realised that the container is empty. I filled it up and went to the specialist. He checked everything (water pump hoses etc.) and found everything is OK. What can cause...
