Any reason for the 07+-10's to be so much cheaper, mileage for mileage, than the uglier(IMHO) older version of the same car? Does the cold start issue only appear when cold or does it happen during...

So, in looking for a Saab to replace my ancient and tired OG9-3, I've seen a lot of 07+ (face lifts) for much cheaper than their 04-06 counterparts. The only reason I can attribute to this, all...

No, I have pried at the strut mount and bounced it all around. When I turn the wheel however, the strut mount visibly distorts, but there is no "slack" per-se being taken up. The only thing I can...

Also, check your transmission fluid level. My car (stg 6) has bad gear-pack rattle when the fluid gets low or very hot. A bad TO bearing makes noise when you CLUTCH IN (otherwise it is unloaded). It...

Nailed it! Was indeed the strut collar. It must have unscrewed itself and then frozen with rust. After really crankin on it, it tightened up in 3/4 of a turn.

Is that the threaded ring that holds the actual shock inside the strut, because that is tight too.

Sounds like bad luck! That T stat should pop @180 or so, but not before. Sounds like a failed T-stat (they fail open, so as the car moves the temp drops)
