  1. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Started to notice a high pitched whine from under the bonnet, which goes up in pitch along with engine speed. Does this suggest imminent turbo problems? Any ideas, please? Thanks

    I've got a '97 Saab 900 SE Turbo with 350k miles. Just replaced the head gasket on it. Now that I've got it back together there's a noticeable whine coming from the oil pump area. The whine is still there even with the serpentine belt off. (Video link: https://vimeo.com/218544188/f86017032e)...

    Hey all, Just bought myself a lovely 9-3 1.8t saloon. It's got a 5 speed manual gearbox. I've noticed that when in 5th gear and coasting at about 70 mph that there is a quiet but noticeable whine. It increases in loudness and pitch as I increase the revs/speed. If I push in the clutch or...

    Hi all Sorry if this comes up as a repost/doublepost. I had posted the questions below in another thread within Saab Audio but it didn't show up as a recent post when I kept checking back. :confused: . . . I was searching for threads about radio noise and found some guidance about adding...

    As the thread name suggests, I am getting a whining noise from the engine on a cold start. once the car has warmed up a little the noise disappears. The car has 85000 miles and a full dealer/specialist service history. I am hearing talk of sludge and breather pipes etc. Are either or both of...

    When accelerating or slowing down In gears 1 and 2 I get a whine, the whine disappears when I depress the clutch, I thought it could be a wheel bearing so took it to the local garage, who said it looks like the bearing is on its way out but to comeback when it gets worse. It is a 07 Vector Sport...
  8. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    I have recently noticed that when accelerating above 2000rpm a high pitched noise start - sounds like the blower running at high speed. The noise ceases when the revs drop to 2000rpm, yet it does not happen when I rev the engine when the car is stationary. Just seems to happen when under load...

    I have a 1999 Saab 9-3 and just finished up rebuilding the motor, head and new turbo. All was well for the first 50 or so miles. I did a quick oil change to flush out the break in lube, but immediately after that I now get a cold start oil pump whine. It goes away after it's up to temp. I...
  10. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Something whining down there. It rises and falls with wheel/road speed and is a whirring sort of a noise. It's still there when I depress the clutch and freewheel but obviously lessens as the car slows. I've checked the gearbox oils topped up so am a bit stumped. According to the manual the...

    Hi Folks First post here so hello to all. I've got a 2002 9-5 lpt 150 bhp and it has developed a whine from start up. Now I know the normal answer to this but in my case it cant be true (hope it cant be). There's 114,000 miles on the clock and at 88,000 the car a full engine rebuild because of...

    My 1996 900SET has been whining for two weeks now. It uses regular GM style PS fluid as reccommended for this year. It had a minor leak and I would just top off the fluid twice a year. A couple of weeks ago, I topped it off and drove about 50 miles. It was after this long trip that I noticed a...

    Hi all, Calling for advice on this one. 'Hers' is making a wierd whine on cold start up. Sounds like it is coming from near the transmission bell housing area. Rises and falls with engine revs, when in Park or Neutral. Noise fades once warm. Suggestions welcome.

    I have a whine from the engine bay. Started a couple of weeks ago. It comes from the front of the engine when you stand with the bonnet up. I think this is where the turbo is? It can be heard from inside when driving around town. Seems to disappear at motorway speeds but maybe just because...

    Hi My 97 GM 900SE has suddenly developed a loud whining noise. It happened the other day when I started it then went away but is back today.
