    Hi all, i'm in the process of deflaping my inlet manifold and as the car has 66,000 on the clock decided to change timing belt, water pump and auxiliary drive belt.

    Had the timing chain changed 1.5 year ago after having dealt with the sludge issue. The chain has been quiet since, but is now rattling again when cold. I dropped the sump, which was completely clean, and took out the timing chain tensioner, which was only extended to 9 mm. I am kind of...

    OK in a bit of panic.... Have spent the last two days swapping the manifold on my Vert and was nearly finished with everything back in place.

    I look like having to change the timing cover gasket in the new year as I have a slight leak from that area.

    Hi, My balancer chain (and timinng chain) has stretched too much. Balancer chain stretched so much that it ate into the timing cover and made a hole in the oil passageway in the timing cover to the oil pump :eek:. I was getting a low oil pressure warning at low revs and when turning right. Am...

  12. Saab 99, 90 (1969 - 1984)
    I have saab 99 1773 model with 2 litre engine. I replaced the head gasket because it was leaking. It runs fine but when it is cold the timing chain is noisy. Once the car warms up the slack noise from the timing chain disappears. Why is this? What can we do?
  13. New Saab 9-5 (2010 - on)
    Just had service done at 78k, and just wondered if there is any work I should have done to ensure the car will run great for the coming years. Does the Saab have a timing chain or belt? And what is the recommended mileage to have replaced?

  16. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Dear fellow Saab owners, from my position of mechanical ignorance, I appeal to your superior knowledge and experience. My 9-5 is coming up to 5 years, Oct '14, and the timing belt replacement seems to be on the cards as at ~67,000 miles now, it will be knocking on for 70K by the time of the...
