    So today I drove about 5 miles and stopped and heard a ticking noise that seemingly came from the top of the motor (to me this indicated valves or cams?). So I gave it a couple revs and the ticking increased with RPM. I then shut the car off for about 15 minutes and then went back and drove...

    Hi Folks, I'm hoping you can maybe help a friend of mine out. He has a 2.0 my02 95 & he's getting the ticking noise from his engine. He believes it's the Cam Followers with the dreaded valve slap. He's wondering what the best course of action would be to try and resolve the ticking. I've read...

    I've just had the car remapped by the awesome SabNoob and after putting it back together I've just started getting a mild ticking from under the bonnet under boost. It's been out of action for about 5 weeks while the ECU went over to the UK and back (I'm now in NZ) and the only other...

    Hi there fellow SAAB drivers, It's the first time I have ever joined a Forum and I'm really glad to be part of SAAB SCENE.

    Today I decided to look into the ticking noise coming from the heater behind the glove box. I was told it was the recirculation motor that causes this. I opened it up to have a look. Above is the inside of the box, the gear to the right is missing some teeth and this is the cause of the...

    I just bought a 2004 9-3 Aero. This is my 4th Saab. I have a ticking/clicking sound and start up and when the turbo spools up. There is no lack of power and the sound goes away when off of boost. My mechanic checked it out and said he can't find anything wrong and as long as there is no lack...

    Anyone got any ideas as to what a ticking may be from behind the dash, below the speedo area??? Seems to be regular, not random, constant low ticking Its reminiscent of a clock ticking but as the displays are digital, it can't be that! Just wondering what mechanically might be causing this. :(

    On a couple of occassions recently I have gone to the car in the morning and the radio will not work and the ticking sound normally heard with the indicators is not there (light still flashes on the dash). Each time after a short break everything will work as it should. As far as I know there...

    Hi folks, Lately, my '55 Saab 9-3 Vector Sport has started clicking or ticking randomly. It's started to get cold in the UK now and my guess would be something to do with the aircon. There's about 20-30 'clicks' in about 5-10 seconds and then it stops. If I have the heat turned up it does...
