    Valve,cam or rocker...Not sure of the official name, but regardless, one is leaking. I can't find the fastening torque anywhere and I'm hoping someone can help here. On more modern vehicles the gaskets are normally fitted dry although there are some cars, like a BMW e39, I once owned, which...

    There is a vacuum feed (5mm approx - say 1/5 inch) from the inlet manifold connecting more or less immediately to a plastic Y piece. One arm heads towards the firewall and connects to a small red cylinder, and the other heads forwards over the top of the engine. It's all suffering from heat...

    I've had a browse through the forum but can't find anything on this. I have a MY2000 9-5 Aero estate with a dodgy catalyst; local garage has nursed it through last 3 MOTs to pass emissions test, but are saying that really need to get a replacement catalyst. However, the stinger has been that...

    This morning my 9-5 decided to chew the aux belt up due the idler pulley failing. After a trip to GSF to get the relevant parts I have ended up with the wrong idler pulley and I think the wrong size belt!!! Anyway - the pulley can be swapped over but I'm really confused what belt I need. - The...

    I am afraid to say I have just killed my My2000 Saab 95 2.0l lpt. This morning while traveling to Newcastle I was driving up the A66 when I felt a misfire, I disengaged the cruise control, and the car stalled. I tried to start the engine when I was on the hard shoulder, and the engine blew the...

    My turbo has just gone after 130 000 miles (I don't know if it was original) and my local independent is going to do the replacement. He hasn't replaced a 9-5 turbo before. Are there any pointers I can give him. Thanks in anticipation Dave Elsy

    I've been toying with the idea of a MY2000 Aero Estate circa 90k which I think should be around the £8k mark given glass top book price is £7k ? Quite like an auto, what model is the 4sp auto and is it as fragile as the 9000 one or will it take a little tuning? Any known problems or things to...

    Hoping for some advice before I call the dealer Monday a.m. Tonight I'm driving home from a movie, pull back on the stalk to activate the high beams - nothing... No change in output from the headlights, no blue indicator on the dash panel. Get home, and in the garage, shut off the car, wait...

    I have been helping a friend of mine to buy a 9-5 (he's going to be soon participating in SSC). I noticed a nice MY2000 cosmic blue aero - automatic. I asked for a testdrive and these are my finds: aero is quick but not that much quicker than my 2.3lpt auto (I expected it to be faster). The ride...
