  2. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hello I am a new member of this forum and I am looking for some advice related to preventive maintenance on a 'new to me vehicle'. The car is a 2007 9-3 1.9 TID Automatic Convertible with 94k on the clock. I plan to do the usual oil change, cam belt/water pump and gearbox fluid change but...
  3. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    In addition to getting a TD04 on my 9-5 2.3t vector, I decided to replace the breathers while I was at it and bought the full kit including the oil trap. However... having just been out to do it, I realise my car is a 2004 (MY2005) and hence the PCV system is actually completely different, as...

  5. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hello, Summer is here, which draws my attention to my old 04 vert (1.8t). Now approaching 160,000. It will soon be tunes beyond 200 bhp, im a tad concerned the handling will shows its limitations when i approach the 225 mark. I think this thread would be great for any other random pieces of...
  6. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    She's up to 165k miles and I better start taking real good care of her. This weekend I am replacing with full synthetic oil along with replacing the plugs. Right now have check engine on for what i believe is O2 sensor or maybe hose leak (code P0420). Thinking about getting new sensors on bank 1...

    My 2003 93 2.0t is due for Major Service since it's at 90k miles. The dealership has a coupon to inspect the wipers, breaks and rotors, tires, exhaust, suspension, belts, hoses, fluids ( and top them off ), heating system and battery for free. ( awesome, right? ):thumbsup: I recently changed...

    Hello to all, I am about to buy 9-5 2007 Aero auto wagon with 160k km and I would like find out, what are my options concerning yearly maintenance works. I checked out three local "official" SAAB services for yearly regular maintenance checks and they all say will cost around 120Gbp every...
  10. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    I've noticed this problem cropping up fairly regular across the forums. Does anyone know which part actually breaks? Or bends? Is there any simple preventative maintenance that can stop this happening in the future? Just simple stuff like greasing the mechanism?

    Hello Saab Scene Members! I'm 17 years old, and I am currently in the process of purchasing a 2003 Saab 9-5 Linear 2.3T 4 CYCL- Sedan. I am purchasing it from my work. We got it as a trade in car, and is in pretty good condition. Now this is going to be a long story, so I hope you will be...
  12. Help, Advice, Saabs and Motoring
    I'm sure I've read somewhere, possibly on this forum, that it is possible to find out what work has bene done on my car by SAAB dealers. My car was dealer serviced up to 83k (maybe even 103k but I can't remember off the top of my head) and I'm interested to see if any of the major components...

  14. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    I'm the new owner of a '03 9-5 linear sedan. the car has 36k miles on it and appears to be fairly well taken care of. I ran the vin past the local saab dealer and found that only pre-paid maintenance items were performed throughout the last 5 years. This is my first Saab and I'm curious as to...
  15. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    My 900 XS Auto has done about 140k - the last 40k being with me. It seems like the gear change is getting less smooth and I'm looking to have it looked at. What should I be asking them to do for me and will they be able to cure the hesitancy when changing gear? Thanks, Mike
  16. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    I have read many posts that talk about cleaning the APC Valve. As far as I can work out from the history, the APC valve is 2.5 years old and covered about 35k on a '95 standard Aero. As the car is being serviced next week, should I take the valve out and clean it (with carb cleaner and...
  17. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Does anybody on the forum know of any links to a manufacturer/dealer SAAB 9000 Maintenance Manual (rather than a Haynes manual). I've seen some CD's advertised on E-Bay, has anybody on the forum bought any of these CD manuals and if so are they any good? Cheers, Ian P.
