    There is a vacuum feed (5mm approx - say 1/5 inch) from the inlet manifold connecting more or less immediately to a plastic Y piece. One arm heads towards the firewall and connects to a small red cylinder, and the other heads forwards over the top of the engine. It's all suffering from heat...

    A friend wants to change the thermostat on his 9-5 Griffin V6 petrol . According to WIS amongst the many things that need removing first are the dipstick tube, turbo charge cooler pipe and another turbo pipe. Does the dipstick usually just pull out? Also are the turbo pipes easy to remove (I...
  6. Classic Saab 900 (1979 - 1993)
    Hi, Just bought a ‘91 900 T16S. I knew the water pump was on the way out & I’ve replaced it, but it appears while spotting that noisy pump I completely overlooked a missing rubber tube from a vacuum port on the inlet manifold. The port’s sucking in air & so obviously needs to be connected...

    hi everyone, I have a 2001 95 aero and I recently bought a forge plug that is used for plugging the by pass tube so you can have an atmospheric blow off valve. It sounds great and turns heads when going down the street, but the problem is that now it idles poorly and will even...

    I have an 86 Turbo that is losing oil through the filler/dip stick tube breather cap under load. I thought it was back pressure but I've replaced the muffler, cat. converter and the crankcase pressure seems worse than ever. The car runs well, I've checked the vacuum lines and can't find...

    Hi Chaps I've got a P reg 9000 and I recently traced a bad smell in the car to the seal on the rocker cover that the bleeder tube plugs into. I had a radiator problem and the car overheated. I think it fried the rubber seal. The garage stuck it on with silicon but the rubber is perished and I...

    Putting a 2.3 back together and the new seal for the oil supply tube( from filter to block) does not match old. Does it change that much from 160k and heat ? I can fit 2 o rings where the last one was .Is this normal ? Kevin

    I have a 03 9-3 2.3T. I am experiencing water on the front passenger floorboard. I believe the AC condenser tube is clogged, how would I go about getting to that tube, and clearing the clog. This only happens when the AC has been run, no rain involved. I actually watched the water run from...

    Hi all I have discoverd a split in the rubber vacuum tube that goes through the bulk head on the passenger side of the car, presumably ending at the boost gauge in the dash. I could add a link and just replace the tubing around the engine bay, but I'd rather replace the lot all the way back to...

    Was having a chat with our next door neighbour yesterday who has recently bought a 32 inch widescreen Philips TV similar to the one we've had for nearly 2 years. He said that he found out afterwards that these Philips TVs are proned to tube failure!! Does anyone know if this is the...
