  3. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hi all, i picked up what at the time seemed a bargain at my nearest tesco - 6 L of Castrol Magnatec semi synthetic oil 10W/40 for £12. I checked the book alongside the oil, and it sadi this was the correct one for my engine. Lo and behold on checking my manual, it doesnt appear to be...

    What sort of and grade of oil should i be using in my saab then?? Its a 2004 2.2 tid with 123k on it. Also how much does it hold??? Are they are any posts on here about cleaning the egr valve on the 2.2 as the search thing on here never seems to bring up much of what im actually looking for...
  5. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Just wondering what fuel grade all the Aero drivers out there use? I have just got mine and imagine it's been on 95 RON. Handbook states that 95 is okay, but performance may be impaired in high temperatures (no worries there then!!) Should I get better MPG running on 98? Mr Linear.

  7. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Hi, The oil in my car has been in for a year / 6000 miles so is due for a change. I am aware it needs Fully Synthetic, So I was looking around and know Mobil 1 to be decent. But what grade should I use in my car with relatively high mileage at 125k? Halfords are doing 5L for £39.99 at the...
  8. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hi All, The manual is saying it needs 98 RON, but the dealership salesman said that it ran on ordinary unleaded, which I took to mean 95 RON (I did'nt know about RON at the time though!!). I'm sure I have read here also that it will run on 95 RON. Obviously the manual will prevail until I know...

    I urgently need to fill up the power steering fluid (from virtually empty) on my 2004 9-5 Aero Hot. Local Halfords book says - consult owners manual. Owners manual says - consult your Saab dealer for information. Oh yeh at 5:30 on a Saturday afternoon? Anyone know the best Halfords grade? They...
  10. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Sorry if this has been covered before but my searches are not turning anything up definitive. Probably me not reading them right or not asking the right question. Manual says 0w-30 Mobil 1. The shelves at the normal outlets do not have it. Is there an issue with using something else in the Mobil...
  11. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Does any one no when the major upgrade took place on the 9-5 aeros in 2002, as i was looking at a really nice aero yesterday it was registered on march 2002 but had no park assist no electric seats or memory no rear heated seats etc and thought this unusualas the car had only done 28k and was...
  12. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Sorry to bring this old issue of oil (but don't we love to talk about it - I think it gives us a good feeling about doing the best for our beloved engines). My local motor factor is selling the new Vauxhall fully synth 5/30 for £18. I have been using 5/40 Halfords for a while. I note that 5/30...

    Hi there, My manual recomends I run my MY04 9-5 Aero (with 5.5K on the clock) on 97 Octane Fuel, however when i collected my car from the dealer, he said dont bother, they run all their cars on 95RON fuel and it works perfectly. He did however say not to go lower than 95RON. Does anyone know...
  15. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hi, Am about to buy some mobil 1 to change the oil in my 2.3lpt (2001Y). What grade should I buy? I've searched old posts and seen 5W/30, 5W/40 and 0W/40 all recommended. Should I go for one over the other? Saabs.info recommends one of the first two. Haynes manual states 0W/30. Confused...
  16. Saabscene: Performance
    Hi, 97' 2.3FPT 9000CSE I think of replacing the stock pressure hoses connecting Turbo-Intercooler-Intake tube-Throttle body with Silicone ones. Do you have experience with aftermarket Silicone pressure hoses? Any suggestion? I look for a supplier who can mail-order since I live in Turkey...
  17. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Hi Bought some Halford semi synth 10-40 at the weekend. I noticed that the API 'requirement stated in my Saab manual (1996) is API SG or SF/CC and that the oil I bought is API SL CF blah blah. My dad just bought some Castrol 10-40 and that was different again. So, does the fact that it is SG or...
  18. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Just bought my first 95 aero (my2001)and I am delighted with it. The manual recommends using 98 octane petrol, which is often hard to find and more expensive (84p per litre at Shell) Will I incurr any damage running at 95 grade other than performance or mpg? Incidentally what is a good mpg for...
