  1. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    I have a 1998 SAAB 9-5, petrol, sedan. It has a crack on top of the petrol tank. I tried to fix it with some petrol tank plastic filler. But it didn't last long. My mechanic here has a tank from a 95 '06. So can he put that on my old car? Some people say yes, and some say no. So I am a bit...
  2. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Evening all. Did my cambelt and pump a number of weeks ago, after driving down to southern Spain the coolant warning light came on, thought there may have been some air in the system and was just settling down. Drove around for a few weeks and it was fine, driving back up the warning came up...

    I have a 99 saab 9-3 and my overflow tank is leaking right where the nipple and the hose go together. Is there anything I can use to seal this?

    Morning all, I have a coolant leak bad enough to drain the tank on a short traffic journey or a long early morning run say Surrey to leeds will hardly make a dent so I know the leak is pressure based. During my annual service the garage informed me the repair will be £415 + fitting so I managed...

  9. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    So what do you get? My remapped TiD 150 usually gets between 500-575 miles to a tank (54-56 litres to fill). My rough MPG figures give me around 41-46 mpg for a mix of motorway and town driving. Is this decent? Got a 600 mile round trip to Brighton soon. Fingers crossed I can make it there and...

    Has anyone removed the fuel filter mounting from the tank ? The fuel filter is v.tight & I'm considering taking the mounting off the car - is this easily done ? The filter has been overtightened, not by me, and the mounting is twisting as I try to remove the filter.

    Hi all, so I just had to fill up the gas for the first time in my new to me 2003 9-5 Arc 3.0t wagon. I wanted to see if this is just me or if others have this issue. I searched fruitlessly on this topic, so I started a new thread. I gas up at the local Costco. Simple enough procedure we all do...

    Hi, I have just bought a 2.8T Convertible 2006. I know that there is a modification nomber 260-2722 to repalce two coolant pipes and the header tank. Spoke to my local dealer and after a sharp intake of breath (although they still service and sell parts) said that they are no longer a dealer...

  16. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    As my '97 9000 is now dead, and the fuel tank was brimmed the day before. I'd like to empty the fuel tank to use in the other cars. Has anyone ever taken the fuel rail etc apart? Which of the two fuel lines attached to the rail is the best to use? Thanks Skiddins

  18. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hello, I was topping up the coolant the other day and was wodering if there was circulation through the header tank, i.e. does the new stuff get drawn into the old stuff and mixxed :confused: . Just a thought when it comes to measuring the strength of the coolant, are you measuring just what's...
  19. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi. Just bought a 2005 2.8 V6 Auto Convertible. The day I viewed it the left hand inlet hose nossel snapped off the top of the expansion tank inside the hose (the hoses had already been swapped from one side to the other). Satisfied that it was just bad luck, hadn't happened before and there...
  20. Classic Saab 900 (1979 - 1993)
    Some @*%$+ drilled the fuel tank last week (my 9000 was done last year) - fortunately I have located a replacement this time, but I was thinking to hang on to the old one and repair the hole, in case it happens again. Versachem make a plastic tank repair kit to repair holes up to 1/2" diameter...
