Go to AutoZone and purchase a Mobil or K&N filter. They're both about the same internal design (or probably are if I remember right) and just about the best you can get your hands on locally. I'm...

Problems solved!

The first problem was that a lower I/C pipe had blown off due to a nasty old clamp. The second rattling problem was actually an alternator bolt that somehow wiggled it's way...

Being that it was 10:30 pm when I checked, I probably missed something. You're right. It does seem the two would be unrelated. The boost issue probably isn't much of a big deal. Either way, the loud...

Weird dump valve noise - Now I've got no power

So I'm cruising home on the freeway and getting up to speed when I'm in 4th gear. I'm barely hitting boost at the time. The car has a stage 2 tune and I was probably at no more than 7 psi when I...

Haven't seen many 9-5 Aero's with manual gearboxes. Talk about a nice looking car! I love those things. Consider me jealous of your purchase (and find).

Enjoy that thing!

Drew,

You know, I am actually getting a pulsing hissing sound under heavy boost for some reason. Not low boost, but only heavy boost. It really sounds like a rattlesnake hissing, to be honest. Any...

Haha. This applies for all years of 9000's. I talked with an ex-coworker the other day and mentioned my turbo rebuild on my 9000. He says "isn't that thing like a 2005?" I reply, "nope, it's a '95."...

Ahh, yup. I feel dumb for not seeing it earlier, but where the MAP sensor vacuum hose connects to that nipple on the intake manifold. That was the cause of the problem. I guess all the boost caused...

Hit Boost - Large Jerk - Runs like crap

I recently installed a rebuilt turbocharger which corrected my awful smoke problem. Well, I was putting some miles on the car when I decided "hell, might as well do a 2nd gear pull around this...

Clutch biting from the bottom

As long as I've owned my CS, the clutch has grabbed right off the bottom. I bled it once with a power bleeder and went through almost an entire container until the fluid came out clear. It got no...

Welcome aboard! Tweek has the right idea. There's far too many 9-3's with sludge issues that are starving the engine of proper lubrication. As he said, get that pan and pick-up screen cleaned out and...

Crappy thing is that I bought this turbo from a salvage yard when I got the engine, and both had about 125k on them and the car was a regular old autobox. The turbo crossed my mind too, but I'd just...

Making a lot of Smoke

My 95' CS is making an awful lot of smoke. It's hard to tell if it's white or bluish. It doesn't particularly smell of anything different, either. Either way, it's making too much of it. So far I...

Went out and went through most of the engine. I found the vacuum line coming from the MAP sensor had split in half just under the MAP sensor nipple. Car seems to idle fine as of now and didn't quite...

Idles terrible, backfires when shut off

As some of you may have seen, I have been having a hell of a time with my '95 CS. I bought it from the PO with a bad knock. It ran fine, drove fine, but had a terrible knock. So I replaced the engine...

No point to that. The crank is what's bad and why I am replacing the entire engine. Bottom end failure, if you will.

This was definitely pulled from a 9k. I even checked the site inventory and it was a '95 according to their inventory. Here's a couple pictures to explain the situation.

AT vs MT (Different Crankshafts?)

Well, I pulled the current engine from my '95 CS (manual) and previously purchased a replacement from what I believe was a '95 something, but automatic. I took the flywheel off and tried to mount it...
