    I'm doing a Vectra...... Same poo as a 9-3 ...... Just a diff badge (& Cheaper) .......... If I flush thro the transmission system, utilising the internal pump in the gearbox...... Then decide to flush it again..... Say three weeks later, the fluids are likely to be a very similar colour ...

    After reading & going through the postings of the majority here I've come to the conclusion that the major hangup of ownership of these cars is screen blockages, turbo break down due to general debris deposition because of the weird nature of these cars - extreme heat generation as the norm. And...

    Hello want to flush system and refill. I know to loosen the hex at the bottom of the radiator and drain, but don't know which hose to disconnect (or can I just put the garden hose in the expansion tank?) to stick a garden hose in. Please be quite specific! Thanks Ez

    I'm about to do my first oil change on the mota since getting it six months ago. The service record is incomplete so I'd like to give it a flush first to remove any deposits from any low grade oil and infrequent oil changes. Also, it sounds like there is a tappet knocking and I'm hoping that...
  9. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    My local specialist has started flushing out my system between oil changes. I'm not sure this is a good idea on a regular basis - has anyone any thoughts, or even hard facts, on the desirability of this? If it is deemed a good thing, how often do you reckon it is needed? I'm on a 6000 regime...

    I started a thread on an Auto transmission flushing machine. I now have had the job done and noted the (Ford) dealership also has a machine for completely changing power steering fluid. Just in case anyone's interested.
