  1. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hello All A Newbie to this forum but not to Saabs. Over the years I've had a 99, a 900 Turbo & a 9000 both in 2.0 turbo & 2.3 High pressure Turbo. My current car is a 2008 93-TTid Vector Sportwagon. I have had it about 4 years. It had 175,000 on the clock when I bought it, & now it has over...
  2. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    So, as part of my preventative maintenance routine, this weekend, I replaced the track rod ends on my Saabillac. My car is now 9 years old and has only done 53k miles, but I noticed during routine checks, that the rubber boots were pretty much flat as pancakes. I knew there was no way in this...
  3. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    After a nice meet up with a friend's newly acquired 95 9000CSE Saturday I hit a guard rail on the drive home. Ironic that the day previous I took this photo and spoke of how elegant and perfect I thought my 9000 was. After months of full-time maintenance and money investment that was...
  4. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    I guess I know the answer to this but 2 plugs were coated, literally running, with oil when I took them out to change today. I had just started the car to move it five feet along so I suppose there was no time for the oil to burn off At 154K miles I'm assuming piston rings have finally gone, in...
  5. New Saab 9-5 (2010 - on)
    Just re-visiting looking for anyone who is satisfactorily repaired the clunk in the rear end, have changed the fluid twice and it helps but doesn't get rid of it. Clunk started at 60 K, car has 80 now.
  6. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    I've go this car I am trying to get started 155k mile that has a damaged radiator. I was told it would start and then shut off because of a low coolant warning. Now it won't start and I'm wondering if it is a fuel issue. I am getting spark at each plug and they are dry. Is there a fuel cutoff...
  7. Help, Advice, Saabs and Motoring
    Looks like the time has come to say bye to my 04 93 2.2tid. Had the car 9 years, mostly pleasurable but now sat outside house and wont start! Have posted about the problem previously and would like to thank those who offered advice. Brief rundown, about 10 months ago after a short journey when...

  8. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Been doing a few more jobs on the old bus, and think I've finally nailed down the noisy back end, simplest thing, rear roll bar bushes. Intercooler replaced as well, turned out to be relatively simple once I popped headlights out. Still looking for a hose though, don't know how long a puncture...

  10. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    It seems to be when you go over a bump or small pot hole. I'm getting a creaking metallic sound!!! I've replaced lower suspension arms and rubber bushes, also track rod ends. The steering seems fine now and goes in a Straight line. The noise was there before I carried out this work, so I now...
  11. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Hello Everyone, I am going to replace the head bolts this week-end and correct me on this. 1. loosen the radiator cap before I start. 2. do one bolt at a time 40 nm, 90nm and 1/4 turn. Seems easy enough, I'll also be replacing the valve cover gasket and sparkplugs as well. It's a '95 9k CS with...
  12. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Entry level 1.8i owner here :) but keen DIYer and enthusiast for the marque (even a base level car is superior to a lot of comparable cars) Anyway, the MOTis approaching early next month - I've started to hear a creaking coming from the front nearside corner, only audible at low speeds, but...

  15. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Hi, I'm about to replace the gearbox mount bushing but I didn't manage to press the bushing out of the mounting in the end plate.I tried this with the end plate not removed from the gearbox. I thought that a workshop could do it but I got to know that it would cost a smaller fortune(US$ 305)...
  16. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Well a new problem (maybe) has emerged. I was backing into a parking spot today, and heard a clunk from my rear end. It could be described as a classic clunking sound, short and dull, not metallic or clangy sounding, if that makes sense. There were no bumps here, and I was going maybe 2mph. I...
