    Hi long time Saab fan here. I have a 9-5 3.0 tid. Even my local Saab specialist B&D Hythe warned against the 3.0 95s, consequently I have not spent a huge amount on servicing as I was expecting it to fail. But two years later with no faults I want to service it myself, the question is to flush...

    hi all I was just wondering if anyone uses a vacuum pump to drain off the fluid from the autobox rather than draining it. The reason I ask is that thetranny fluid on my newly aquired 9-5 auto is a very brown colour and will need the 3 cycle clean process leaving a day or 2 between...

    Since I had some difficulty finding how others have flushed their transmission fluid I thought I would post up how I've done mine. I have a 97 900S 2.3L that's just clocked up 152600km. Note : Ensure absolute cleanliness is maintained. 1. Transmission drained though 24mm plug on RHS of case...

    Hey folks, My camshaft is leaking oil through the power steering pump (according to my dealer), and I'll be switching out the power steering pump tonight and flushing the oil out of the power steering lines. I plan on rerouting the return line to an empty bottle, filling the reservoir with...

    Hi, I'm planning on renewing the coolant and doing an engine and radiator flush at the same time on my 2001 2.2 TiD. I was thinking of draining the existing coolant by removing the lower radiator hose and the expansion tank cap and then filling the system up with water and Holts Speedflush. I...

    I have a M98 9-5 2.0 LPT that has already eaten one turbo just after i bought it. That was replaced by the garage that sold it to me, but I don't know if they cleaned the sump or feed pipes etc. My current problem is i'm due an oil change but don't know whether to flush the engine or not as...

    Some of you might remember a previous post I posted about an 02 9-5 that I bought last may that had 78k as I thought, but in fact had considerably more. I was not too happy to say the least. Well I got a garage to drop the sump and have a look at the oil strainer etc, and just got her back today...

    whats a two part flush
  18. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    After doing a bit of research into the Saab 9000's automatic gearbox, I came across a relatively simple procedure for flushing the complete system. Question is, has any tried it? Or if I should? Drain the pan, and refill with fresh. Disconnect the line from the torque converter to the...

    Does flushing your engine oil out before filling with oil get rid of the gunk and [expletive deleted] associated with the crud in the oil sump and the oil strainer or do you have to take these off to clean them.(sorry if the terms are wrong but i don't know anything about cars.) The reason i...
