    Trying to get my Mitzibushi Te05-12b rebuilt for my 1992 900 fpt. Has anyone had theirs rebuilt recently. Midlands turbo told me they couldn't get the shaft for it, so couldn't do anything with it. Any help would be appreciated. Martyn

  4. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    I have a 2004 9-3 2.0turbo. Just replaced the head gasket and on start up it had a really rough idle. I'm sure the timing went back exactly the way it was. To be on the safe side I ordered a camshaft locking tool for a Z20NET engine as I was told this was the same engine. The tool turned up...
  5. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi There, I recently bought a 2005 9-3 1.9TiD 150 Linear manual. On my first motorway journey I got a temperature warning followed a second or two later with complete engine failure! From looking at it in situ and around the forum at common problems I think the water pump has failed and taken...
  6. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    I have a 1999 Saab 9-3 and just finished up rebuilding the motor, head and new turbo. All was well for the first 50 or so miles. I did a quick oil change to flush out the break in lube, but immediately after that I now get a cold start oil pump whine. It goes away after it's up to temp. I...

    Hi all Has anyone used Top Hydraulics Inc in Oregon to rebuild their convertible soft top leaking cylinders? Was the rebuild successful? And does anyone have detailed instructions on removal/refitting of the 5 cylinders? This would include cycling the soft top operation successfully. Thanks
  8. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Hi I've just rebuilt my turbo on a 9-3 SE (118K) and fitted a PCV kit (no.6) It seems to be pulling better than before ;) but the fuel economy has dropped noticeably. I used to get 29-33mpg driving to work (17m on mostly motorways) but since the rebuild I'm getting 23-25mpg on the same journey...

    Greetings all,..from Central Illinois where it is a balmy 73 degrees. I originally set into replace the turbo on my 95 9000 (of 7 years), however as I have dug deeper and removed more components, I have found the timing components to be in need of repair. The intake balance shaft sprocket had...
  10. Saab Recommendations
    For anyone who has had a failure of the master latch hyudraulic cylinder of their 9-3 Convertible, you may already be experiencing the problem of obtaining a new/used hydraulic cylinder as a replacement. As my mechanic said- "these seem to be on intergalactic backorder". And what odd Saab part...

  13. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    I've decided to go for a rebuild instead of an exchange engine on our 2.3t estate after the cambelt chewed through the end plate and the oil light came on. (It hasn't seized, but I've been told by a garage it needs fully rebuilding or exchanging to be safe.) Can anyone recommend somebody to do...

    Hi, I've nearly completed reassembly of a 9000 gearbox having fitted a new plastic speedo ring gear (p/n 8734964) and a compression spacer (p/n 90511220). The box is not yet in the car. Does anyone know the appropriate procedure for tightening the big 27mm nut under the 5th gear cover to...
  17. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Hi all, I'm new to the board as I'm picking up a Saab 9000 2.0T LPT on Sunday. I have purchased it to use as a project car, I wanted something quick for cheap and at 400 pounds for a reasonably sound car I thought the Saab was a good purchase. I have also always wanted a car as a project, to...

    Front nearside caliper on the OH's 9000 was sticking around 2 years ago. Manager to procure a second hand one off a very friendly gent off here including seal kit to rebuild it.

    Just in case I hit any unforeseen problems - how straightforward is it to get the clutch master cyl off, and rebuilt? It seems fairly tight down there - what have I got to remove to get access? I hear its difficult to bleed too - will an Eezibleed do the job?
