    I've got a 2001 9-3 SE with 106K on it. I recently pulled the spark plugs and the #3 plug tip was touching the electrode - there was no gap. The tip wasn't beaten up, it just looked like it was pressed down. I haven't pulled the oil pan yet to check the bearings, but I'm wondering if bad...

    Hello all, I recently acquired a 1999 95 2.3t for spares/repairs. It ran, just about. I had hoped that I could save it but sadly it seems not, not economically anyway, see the photos: pic1 pic2 It seems almost like the top surface of the piston has disintegrated. There is damage to all four of...

    I've finally got the head off the Saab so I can change the gasket. Two questions 1) There doesn't appear to be anything wrong with the existing gasket whatsoever. When a gasket has failed what are the signs? The only thing I can find wrong with the setup is #10 head bolt was barely finger...
