    Hello, I have bought diesel-based, MY01 9-3. Unfortunately, it seems like the previous owner have broken and welded the oil engine dipstick. So now I have two min/max scales and I don't know which to follow :confused: Could somebody, please check their "working length" of the oil dipstick? I am...

    I've been doing a few long trips recently so i thought i would check the oil. The oil is way up the dipstick.I know there is a software update i can have but i have had a DPF and EGR delete and don't know if these will be affected if i have an update. The car is running really well and no...

    Hi- I have an x-reg 95 2.0t - there are some blobs of 'mayonnaise' on my dipstick and a little on the end. Also- my dipstick is going rusty. Coolant level has not changed so think I can rule out head gasket. Am thinking that it is perhaps moisture building up in the dipstick tube- have had it a...

    A friend wants to change the thermostat on his 9-5 Griffin V6 petrol . According to WIS amongst the many things that need removing first are the dipstick tube, turbo charge cooler pipe and another turbo pipe. Does the dipstick usually just pull out? Also are the turbo pipes easy to remove (I...

    Morning all... Well as the title says, my 2001 2.2 Tid says check oil level when going through it's pre-start checks, I've checked the level when cold and it's fine. Is it time to look at the oil pressure sensor? Is it safe to drive if the oil pressure sensors duff? Surely that just misreports...

    To cut a long story short I started with a spluttering of the engine and Particle Filter Full warning coming on all the time. The Saab main dealer told me I had bought the wrong car as I only do 10,000 miles per year. They took it in and did a tech 2 full upgrade on the engine and told me this...

    This is a bit embarrassing really, but try as I might, I cannot find an easy way to read the oil level. It is never clear to me what the level of the oil is on the dipstick. My usual technique is to wait until the engine is hot, letting the oil drain back down the tube for 15 minutes or so, then...

    Hi guys, I think I have a typical leak in the pipework/radiator area and so have been losing transmission fluid. Anyway I can't get to find/fix that this week so I'm trying to get it and keep it topped up. PS: 1999 4 speed Auto + Dexron III (equivalent). Anyway I'm having trouble seeing the...

  15. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Just a simple one - but having owned my 1998 2.3ltr - 93 Conv (B234 engine) for a few months now - I am not sure of the proper way to check the oil ? The dipstick is in the centre of the engine attached to the filler cap - and i find it really difficult to actually see the oil line on the...

    I have acquired an early-ish (about 1990) 4HP18 autobox dipstick, which has a flexible rubbery black measuring section and a yellow plastic top. Coincidentally, the broken-off nylon measuring end (now very brittle) of the original dipstick on my '95 V6 CSE came out with the fluid this time, so I...

    It's an automatic transmission, but I can't see the dipstick anywhere under the hood. I'm hating to ask such a noob question, but I'm super stumped! I just want to take a peek at the level before I go into flushing the transmission oil. This won't change my plan of doing the flush, I don't...

  19. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    As the title states, should the automatic dipstick be curved where the level indicators are? When I replace the dipstick it doesn't feel like it's turning to adjust to the shape of the transmission. Should it be straight? Has it bent over time? I just want to make sure I'm getting the right...

    Hi can anyone help with some advice please? I bought a second hand 9 5 Aero today - MY02 43kmiles. Just had the 42k service this week prior to me collecting it. On the way home all was going well then after about 20 miles (so fully warmed up) I accelerated hard and got black smoke plus...
