    Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hello! Has anyone tried an engine carbon cleaning using hydrogen? I've found different opinions and even my mechanic, which tested one an a few cars said it was rubbish. Could these hydrogen boxes vary in quality? I'd like to know your opinion, specially on diesels. Thanks!

  14. Help needed re engine & auto box oil (9-5 lpt auto

    Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Some info if someone would be so kind? Having read thro the threads I have some points I don’t understand. 1. Quite a few aficionados make some very persuasive comments about "dropping the sump to clean it and the strainer assembly". I am not a mechanic by any stretch of the imagination! But...

    The car has 66,000 Miles on it, runs like a ball off Cal Ripken's bat and doesn't burn oil or leak anything! At 65 K miles the check engine light came on. It was the evap code and was reset at the dealerJIP. Dealer stated that the gas cap was a little loose, so replaced. Now at 66k miles the...
  19. engine management light is on!!

    Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    The car stalled, it did start again but won't tick over. Being an auto, if you take your foot off the gas it will stall when doing 30mph needing you to turn it over in neutral. Any thoughts on the issue here? Thanks
  20. Saab 9000 Car Engine Design Book

    Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Hello all, I'm wondering if there's any book that explain in detail the Saab 9000 Car Design (especially the car engine). My purpose is for self-study about car engine design. I've looked at the Haynes series, but it's more of a repair manual, rather than explaining the design philosophy...
