    Hi guys. My Tid was leaking about 0,1L of coolant for every 5000km. Even though it was not that problematic, but I had to get it fixed. During last maintenance, a few days ago, I've asked to check it and the problem was the thermostat, which was replaced. Somehow even before driving the car I...

    Hey guys, I am hoping you can tell me if I can replace the thermostat without replacing the entire thermostat housing??? I will replace the coolant temperature sensor (the one with a blue plug thats next to the thermostat housing but is actually mounted to the engine block) but thinking of...

    Hi All :D, New to the forum and just picked up my 2005 9-3 1.9 Tid 120bhp. I noticed that the temp gauge is only getting to a quarter (max) and down again when I turn the heating up inside the car. I presume that that Stat needs changing and was wondering if there is a comprehensive How To...

  7. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    just thought I would share my experience and hope this might help someone. the termperature needle in my Saab would never reach middle unless you drive aggresively and even then it would fluctuate. so if you're cruising in the motorway it would be below the middle mark. if you accelerated hard...
  8. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    So spoke with ECP who gave me the choice of a new thermostat and housing for £30ish notes or just the stat itself for £8, given my last motors haven't been that difficult to swap just the stat, I bought the stat alone. However, I can see the stat, I just can't figure out how to disengage both...
  9. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Does anyone know the purpose of part #12789738 (small black part/cover that bolts to the thermostat housing itself). Is this just a drain for the thermostat housing? Also, I was wondering what the purpose of the small pointed tip on the inside of the black cover? It was leaking on my 2011 so...
  10. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi there, new to the forum, and saab ownership! Looking for a bit of advise regarding the thermostat on a 2005 saab tid 120. Can I use a vauxhall part? And is a straight forward fit? I've had a search around, but don't seem to be able to find much info on the 120 engine. Any help would be...
  11. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    First time I have had a thermostat fail for many years, but behaviour is very odd...... In the morning, I drive about 8 miles (7 of those on a dual carriageway at speed) before the gauge shows normal. After it gets there, it stays there (bang in the middle) On the way home, I travel about 2...

    Hi there guys. 55 plate 1.9 Tid 120 8v. Next on my list is to replace the thermostat as it is taking a long time to warm up. In fact I've only seen the gauge hit 1/2 a couple of times. So my question is are the aftermarket ones like the Gates one any good or am I better off paying a little...
  14. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    The check engine light came on this morning and with my OBD2 reader it came up as coolant temperature sensor fault. Googled it and quite a few of the guides are saying change the thermostat or the sensor. Which part do i require? Looked at neobros etc but im none the wiser. Thanks in advance...
  15. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    I have a 1999 Saab 9-3 and my temperature gauge is not moving at all but my check engine light is not on. I took it to advance auto and had them check for codes (The only one it's throwing is P0442 which is a small emissions leak, replacing the gas cap tomorrow, hopefully that fixes the problem...

    Hello folks. I hope some of you wise heads may be able to help. I have a 1991 900 SE, generally in sound condition apart from a sagging headlining and the occasional whiff of petrol and the following problems I would like to deal with: The heater doesn't appear to work, but I suspect this is...
  17. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hi- the coolant thermostat doesn't seem to be working on my X-reg 2lt 95 so I'm going to replace it. It seems that I can get one from Euro Car Parts that comes with a rubber sealing ring. I was wondering whether I need to buy any sort of replacement gasket for the thermostat housing? Thanks, James

    Hello everybody, I'm about to replace my thermostat on a 1998 saab 93 convertible 2.3i non turbo engine . It seems the only information i can gather is on turbo engines, and since mine is non turbo its a bit confusing. I have located the thermostat housing, and there seems to be a bracket...
