    Guys, Recently wrote this as an answer to a question on another Saab site and thought it might be of interest. Allthough directed at the 9-3 it is also applicable to the Classic 9-5. No need to touch the subframe to do the sump. Unplug the lambda sensors, take off the turbo/exhaust manifold...

    Hey SaabScene, I bought a 2005 9-5 Aero awhile back and I've gradually been getting it ready for regular driving. I know earlier models suffered from oil sludge but this was fixed by 2004-2005. My question is, should I drop the sump to check for sludge even though my Saab has the improved PCV...

    I discovered today that my engine sump is cracked right in the middle, presumably from some idiot jacking the car up using the sump, as there is no sign of any physical damage. There had been oil spots on my drive since I bought it, which I put down to a small bit of diesel escaping from...

    Howdy lads I'm going to look at two aeros in the following weeks, one manual, one auto, the auto has more extras and I've done a backround check on it and it's all good, I've yet to do one for the manual, but the manual has gotten a new clutch in the last month so that's the dmf issue sorted...

    Hi, could anyone tell me the correct size for the sump plug. I ve just attempted to do an oil change on the drive but managed to round off the nut. 13mm seemed right but rounded off.12 mm wouldn't go near it! Are they a funny size or is my spaniards duff? Thanks, Paul

    Hi I'm just carrying out a sump drop on my hot aero. After removing the sump I have noticed that there is a metal pipe (breather)? crossing the crankcase. It's quite loose and can be pulled out quite easily is this normal or are new seals required I'd hate it to rattle loose. any info would be great
