    Hi, Can anyone help? My wife's 2004, 54 plate, 9-5L 2.0lt auto has a couple of issues, 1) it keeps 'boiling' the water, so the level drops, when i top it up it starts to purge the air but then just bubbles up. The 'top hose' does not seem to have any water in it as when you squeeze it nothing...

    Hi last week i made a short journey home late and on arrival at home the car smelt warm and on stopping the car lifted the bonnet and it sounded like a kettle boiling. Called my at home response the next day who suggested it could be the water pump as it was making a screeching sound. Cam belt...
  3. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    I just bought a 2004 Saab 9-3. Bought it from a family member knowing that it had some sort of coolant leak. Yesterday I was driving to work and got a temperature warning on the dash, looked down and the temp gauge was all the way up so i pulled over and let it idle. Within 5 mins it was back...
  4. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    This morning on my usual run to work at the point where the engine is usually almost warm, the temperature gauge suddenly climbed pretty rapidly up to nearly the top until I lifted off, at which point it dropped back down to normal. Later in the same journey I was going quite fast having...

    The radiator fan does not continue to run to cool a hot engine when I turn the ignition switch off -- occasionally resulting in boiling of the coolant. NOT GOOD -- I don't want overheating to warp the heads or overpressure the system and burst hoses! The fan DOES run after the engine has...

    My engine is overheating as the ecm is not controlling the fans. I replaced the temperature sensor but that did not help. I suspect that the ecm is responsible for this issue as the ecm is also controlling the temperature gauge and the gauge needle is never reaching the "RED" area even though...

    Good evening I'm after a little help with a problem on my newly acquired Saab 1.8t cabriolet if possible. The problem I have is as follows from cold and even with ignition off the car temp gauge reads hot with the needle pointing virtually in red zone, as I drive the car it will go through the...
  8. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    I am having a persistent overheating problem with my 9-3. After about 15-20 minutes of idling or city driving, the coolant reservoir overflows rather violently under a lot of pressure. The temperature gauge is reading 0/cold and not moving at all. The CEL has been on but when I read the...

    So today i was doing 65 MPH on my way back from Leeds, and i got a overheating warning on dash telling me to pull over, anyway, i couldn't pull over so i banged the heating on MAX and put windows down as it was really hot :mad: This lowered the temp to just over half on the guage....so i drove...
  11. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Good day, Not that it's every been trouble-free, but things with my 95 9000 CSE have recently gone totally pear-shaped. A little background leading up to the issue: 1) This past winter, if the temperature was around 0C, the car would take ages to warm up. Temp needle stayed on cold and the...

    Hi all; I have a 1999 2.3 turbo Aero that has developed the following problem; About a year ago the temperature guage dropped and I stopped the car and turned it off. After finding no problems under the bonnet I started the car and it never happened again until about 6 weeks ago, I did the...
  13. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    My 9000 Turbo with 2.3 engine is overheating. I replaced the thermostat and the thermostatic switch in the radiator. All the relays and fuses are good. Can I drive the car without the thermostat or will that cause more damage?
  14. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi all, I hope someone can help. I have an 06 9-3 1.9TiD Vector Sport estate. The engine started overheating a couple of days ago and the heater was blowing cold :confused:. I came to the conclusion that it would be the thermostat. I bought a new one (£45.00 from Europarts:thumbsup:, £90 or £95...
  15. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hi, Yesterday I bought myself a beautiful, impeccable Saab 95 2.3 SE Turbo on a 1998 Plate (R Reg). I bought it at the auctions for a great price (Scrap price to be honest) thinking I had bought a bargain (typical!!!) but when driving back from the auctions it started to overheat, I had to...
  16. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Hello All, I have spent way to much time and $ trying to fix what stated as a "small" problem, leaking radiator. Replaced with a new radiator then had several over heating issues which lead me to believe I had a problem with "bleeding" the air out of the system. The upper hose not "flooded"...
  17. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Hi, my first post on these forums, nice to meet you all. I am experiencing major problems whilst driving my 1994 9000 CSE Turbo on hot days (above say 30 celcius / 86 farenheight). The engine will completely cut out without warning, after I have driven approx 50 + kms. It will then take between...
  18. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    My 2001 9-5 has been overheating when it is stationary. Steam pours out from under the bonnet, but the temperature guage is still at normal. Does the same sensor control the radiator fan and the temperature guage, or is there some other explanation for this problem?
  19. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    * The expansion tank is just under the full mark, and hasn't decreased in volume. * The main hoses seem to be carrying water. * No signs of leaks * Fan is operational. * Radiator is new and almost thoroughly clear of road debris/dead bugs. But in slow city traffic (and once or twice on the...

    Hello again, Been going well now for 5,000 miles or so but having some problems overheating - have found small leak on one of the water pipes but cannot identify part number - does anyone have a list or picture so I can try and source? Also problem started when alternator belts decided to...
