    I was wondering if somebody could give me some guidance, on the oil spec for the 6 speed manual gearbox fluid . And where abouts is the filler plug located for the above , Reason being I had a bit of an argument with the n/s driveshaft :crazy: Any input would be greatly appreciated.

    Bit odd this but I've noticed my fuel filler flap isn't closing and not dead locking when centrally locked. I think I must be missing a catch or something but I'm not sure what the mechanism looks like. I wondered if anyone could suggest anything or take a couple of close up pics of what it...
  3. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    :unsure:First post alert ... be gentle! This is a really wet question - I want to be able to open my fuel filler door when the central locking is out of action (1998 9000 saloon). I found advice on here about the location of the manual release (in the boot, next to the fuel filler, behind a...

    Hi There I have a 2004 9-3ss Aero which seems to have developed an oil leak from the power steering filler cap. It appears to be engine oil leaking out the top and apparently this is caused from a seal braking between the power steering pump and engine? Does anyone know where the seal can be...

    I wanted to change the manual gearbox oil in my 1992 c900 LPT but the filler plug is totally and utterly seized up and will not budge. All I have managed to do is to completely round off the thread on the plug with all the pulling and slipping so now I am totally stuffed. Why oh why was a...

    I have an 86 Turbo that is losing oil through the filler/dip stick tube breather cap under load. I thought it was back pressure but I've replaced the muffler, cat. converter and the crankcase pressure seems worse than ever. The car runs well, I've checked the vacuum lines and can't find...
  8. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    I recently had to top up the gearbox oil in my manual '03 Aero, and the filler plug (which was as tight as a pretty tight thing - 35K on the clock, so probably never been disturbed) had no sealing washer under it. Is this normal, or has a(nother) bodger been at it? BOF

    Has anyone ever replaced the oil filler neck on the 2.2 TiD engine which hopefully stops the slight oil leak around it. I have already replaced the 'o' ring on the filler cap itself with no improvement but I have no idea on how to remove the filler neck itself. All advice gratefully received...
  10. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Has anyone ever replaced the filler neck/oil trap on a 2.2 TiD engine? I need to replace it to cure the slight oil leak that is permanently round the filler neck. It looks to me as if all you need to do is wedge something in it and give it a half turn or so to remove it. I don't want to have it...

    Hi All I replaced the old air filter on my 92 9000 with a washable one awhile back. Removed it the other day and after cleaning went to replace it and couldn't remember if the open or the closed end went in first ( away from the motor) Checked the Haynes and it didn't help. Does it make a...

    Saab people, My early 03 Saab 9-5 2.2. TiD estate, has a small pool of oil around the filler cap on top of the cam cover. If I clean it up, then it has returned a few days later. It's not running down the block as far as I can see. Is this normal?? or is it 'just one of those things' associated...
  13. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    My fuel filler cap does not open on my MY03 Aero using the button on the drivers door, It seems coincidental that it stopped working after I caught the cap while it was open filling up with fuel. When the release button is pressed there is just a clicking sound. Its now a pain having to flip the...
  14. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Hi, I have just purchased my first Saab, a 98 9000 CSE 2.0 Auto Anniversary Edition. The car is fantastic apart from breaking down the day after I had it which resulted in a tow in and a new igntion coil pack (ouch!!). It has returned 30mpg on a 250 mile round trip to Wales without using any...
  15. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hi All, Just checking my oil levels and the gearbox oil is pink and clear. However, the oil filler neck underneath the filler cap is coated in a creamy biege coloured gunk. I have cleaned it all off and checked the oil and it's at the right level but this gunk is all the way down the...

    I was just glancing over the Piston Heads web site when I noticed an ad from Squire Furneaux Saab. Hirshed 9-5 Aeros going for 12K less than list, bargain! 300bhp and 400Nm for 25,950. Snag is there are only ten of these ultimate Q cars to sell, so I had better get pen to paper and send it off...

    Maybe its just me being cack handed but does anyone else find topping the oil up on the 93 and 95 a bit of a pain. The Filler pipe is narrow and I always manage to pour oil in faster than it can drain out. Also I find that if I put the dipstick back in too soon then the whole thing comes out...

    Thanks to Tedjs for sending this in. It’s been known for some time that the US governement was changing its fuel calculation methods for 2008. The comprehensive guide to this new system came out late last week and it’s got some bad news for everyone. How about a Prius that gets 12mpg less...
  19. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    I was doing a routine oil change at the weekend and noticed a little smoke wafting from the oil filler tube whilst the oil was draining. This was shortly after switching the (hot) engne off. It wasn't pouring out, more like the amount you get after you've blown out a candle. Is this normal or...
  20. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Is it "normal" for a 2.3t motor to develop a thin smear of yellowy cream deposit under the oil filler cap and in the upper tube area? Has this thing done a Head gasket? I am told they have a steel gasket and don't "do gaskets". No overheating, no water bottle level drop, no smell or smoke. Most...
