  3. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    I run my 2004MY Aero estate auto (with a Maptun Stage 1) on high octane (97/98, depending on supplier) as a matter of course. I'm afraid to say that, in the current economic climate, I'm wondering whether it's worthwhile or just a waste of money in the winter. I understand the basic reasons for...
  4. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    .. at least I think that's what's happening. On my 1995 Aero, when accelerating hard(ish) (particularly in gears 3/4/5), it pulls unevenly, and I can hear the familiar hiss of the waste gate opening (or something that sounds like it) regularly every second (or a little less). From scanning...

    I am just in the process of ordering a JT 3" system from Elk, and my WGA is stuffed, so I thought I'd take a look at the Forge ones, the problem is the three springs they offer (not to mention the pin size looking at previous posts) 5-10 9-15 and 14-18 psi, none of these seem strong enough as...

Back in March the drive belt snapped and left me stranded. Having had enough of paying the main dealers high prices I had my car towed to a saab indpendant...

  9. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    I have a 1993 9000 Aero CS. It has been laid up for a couple of months and so the other day I decided to give it a run. It started with no problem and idled quite nicely. After letting it warm up for a while I took it out for a spin. Gentle at first until the temperature had come up to running...

  11. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Hi all I was under the car at the weekend and noticed that the waste gate actuator rod is defying gravity by staying on the actuator arm in the absence of its' circlip (or at least, it is shown as a circlip in the parts catalogue for a 1993 aero). I just wondered if anyone knew the size of this...

  13. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    I have noticed that there is a small deposit of soot to the side of the rubber pipe comming from the plastic waste gate. As the car has only covered 17k . Should I be asking for a new pipe, a valve or a cloth?
  14. Classic Saab 900 (1979 - 1993)
    Stripped the exhaust nuckle of the turbo last night and yes the valve was wedged open but more importantly has come adrift from the lever arm. Has any one seen this before? Also the APC is cutting in at 3500RPM every gear (Light bulb i have in parallel is flickering). I stripped the dizzy and...
