  2. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Not sure if this is anything really to worry about but no harm in asking. First off the car is a 2002 9-5 Aero hot estate. Only when at idle and only with the auto gearbox in drive \ reverse there is a rattling noise. When on the move or in park the noise goes away. I had the gearbox oil...
  3. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    I was getting blue smoke under full load and thought my rebuild didn't break in my rings well. However I'm getting 200# across all cylinders and looking at the plugs seem clean on all Cylinders. I'm using about a quart every 300 miles and it really gets bad under load. Reeving in the...

  15. Saab News
    I’ll admit I’ve not been a huge fan of Left Lane News over the years, but perhaps I neet to take a second look. I’ll keep the reasons for my indifference to myself, but suffice to say that when Andrew Ganz from LLN emailed me to let me know he’d prepared a review of the 2008 Saab 9-3 2.0T, I...

    Hi everyone, I've just been offered an excellent deal on a car that I've always fancied and might have to sell the Saab depending upon what price I can get for it. The car isn't for sale presently but I'm just wondering what people think it'd be worth - ideally I'd like around £4k for it but...
  17. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Driving my MY97 2.0 LPT Auto Anniversary on the M6 last Friday when the engine suddenly became very noisy, as I was slowing down there was an almighty bang from the engine and the assoicated loss of power. After stopping and spotting the trail of oil and the growing pool under the car the worst...

Anyway it's done, and sitting outside my house waiting to be drained of the stuff. Question please: How do I go about draining out all the...
  20. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    I think the hood of my 9-3 does not sit properly on the rear nearside. At first I thought that the additional traffic noise in the car was because it was a convertible and the hood sort of pressure seals to the body work at the rear. But now I am sure it just doesnt sit right, there is...
