    Hi Guys, I'm after a little help picking a new coil pack and I’m wondering if someone could have a quick look at their coils for me? I'm currently out in Florida for my wedding / honeymoon and while the coils are so cheap out here and I suspect I have one which is breaking down I thought I’d...

    Hi all Yesterday I was driving down the third lane of the M56 in criuse control when the engine lost all power , I just about managed to coast onto the hard shoulder. I opened the bonnet to check the engine had not fallen out onto the road (it hadn't) . I tried the engine and it started no...

I get a clicking noise from the engine just before i start the car and when cold it...

    My car is a little lumpy on tick over at lights and when stopped in traffic.I have read that this is a common fault with this car. I recently put Shell V-Power fuel in and noticed I got about 3-4 MPG better fuel economy and the revs appeared alot higher on tick over and it seamed to prevent the...
  7. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    As soon as I turned the key to "ON", then I get this odd noise, a bit like a tick, a bit like an internittant buzz. It's not the cabin temp sensor, and the noise stops when I unplug the ACC (nope the noise ain't coming directly from the ACC unit). I seem to remember something about a voltage...

    Hi all, I have got this really weird noise coming from my engine. It basically goes tick tick tick stop tick tick tick stop. When it starts ticking each tick gets louder and louder then it stops for a few seconds and then starts again. I guessing that this is probably the hydrolic tappets but...

    My engine used to tick for about thirty seconds after startup. All of a sudden, the ticking has remained constant (it doesn't stop). 3 questions: 1) Is it likely the valve tappets? 2) Could it be the timing chain? 3) How long can I run like this? Its an '86 9000 turbo with 335,000km on it...

    Hi All, The tick over on the 9000XS (J) is all over the place. No matter how hot the engine or how long the run sometimes it will still idle at 1,500 rpm and sometimes its ok. What should I be looking for? TIA Ian
