  1. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    I bought a '92 9000S 2.3L non turbo that supposedly had a new or rebuilt 5spd fitted to it. I was told that it was out of a Turbo '93 that had some other problem..... so the box was used to put the one I own on the road. Laundry list: 1.) 1st gear must be engaged at slight movement forward ...

    Hi all, has anybody just bought, in the last few weeks, a 1992 Gold coloured 9000 auto, 2.3 S, from an OAP in Emma Green, Reading ? Car had been standing for a time. Just curious...

    Re: MY92 2.3 engine mounts The bottom engine mounts are both hydraulic - and both around £60. Fairly easy to replace - one bolt on each securing mount to engine, then 2 bolts securing mount to chassis. Engine needs lifting slightly to get mount out of recess in chassis - I think BillJ has...

    Afternoon everyone. Picked the Red Dragon up from my indie garage yesterday [service, MOT] , minus the air con compressor [Sanden SD-709] as the old one was u/s and the replacement I'd got from Simply SAAB appears to have a buckled front pulley so it's got to be replaced ...

  8. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Well after the success of the idle valve clean on my 2.0ltp MY96 I decided to do the same on the K reg. Only one slight problem is that it doesn't have one. I've done a quick search for symptoms on the board but not found a definite answer. Car starts fine, idles fine when cold, actually...
