Did you confirm that the Cobalt valve has the same impedance as the correct Saab unit? You might also check for frayed or rubbed through wiring. That loom breaks down there and the the wires can...

I don't know the answer to your specific question, but I think in 2003 many (most?) of the SE convertibles had Viggen trim but there were no true B235 Viggens that year, so you don't have a Viggen. ...

That really doesn't sound good at all. If you ever have kids that drive, you should consider teaching them that when the oil light comes on, under all circumstances, it means shut the engine off as...

Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but I think the Pp pushes back against the bearing face, compressing the cylinder and there's light contact continously on the stock setup, just not loaded--the...

Another option, you could consider shimming the PP out instead of getting it machined. Less pain and then when it wears you can try removing the shims--or adjust things to suit how you want it to...

Actually. This is a long shot because it would have to be really bad to cause a massive leak, but I'm going to throw down a guess that it's related to the fuel pump replacement, and whoever did the...

Yeah for sure. If they're really upgrading the PP, then I'm excited, it's worth it. If they're painting it a different color and claiming something that isn't true than not so much.

If they have...

Hmm, it would be cool if they really do have an uprated PP. The thickness would be different if they had thicker springs and didn't remove friction surface, it's not likely they're moving the pivot...

I haven't done a 9-5 clutch yet, but I think they're thicker than the OG 9-3 and won't work because I think the bellhousings are deeper/bigger on the 9-5 transmissions. Otherwise the diameter, bolt...

There's no free lunch. When you buy too much clutch you're getting earlier wear out. That or increased pedal pressure (or both), and probably along with chattering and abrupt take-up. I'm unaware...

I can't say on that Spectra, but the Nissans was an exact drop in replacement for our 2000 Aero auto. It took maybe an hour and a half or two hours to do without rushing. They did a good job...

I don't agree with Craig, it's important to get it right and when setting timing make sure that you spin it by hand a few times.

It's normal that when you line everything up you'll be off a...

Bob you may take some solace in considering age as a wear factor along with mileage. The newest 9000 is still what, 17 years old? Buy a final year B235R 9-5 Aero and be happy.

Awesome! Thank you, that's not too far actually. I'm going to give them a call. If they can set up a new cylinder to an existing key that saves a lot of headache for sure.

Yes. Looking good for sure.



I had the exact same thing happen years ago on my first 9-3; the power steering pump started leaking shortly after that.
