    My fellow SAAB lovers, I have to replace the radiator, and also the upper, and lower hoses. Are there any recommendations so far as what brand of parts to use? I have found competitive prices at eeuroparts, but I'm wondering if someone else has had better luck. Here's the eeuroparts radiator...
  2. Car Problems? NG900 or old 9-3 Only
    My newly acquired 2001 9-3 has twice done something to concern me. After a highway drive of about a half hour, without pushing it at all (turbo needle never goes into second section), I drive at local speed for maybe ten minutes, and when I stop the car I get white steam from under the hood...

    My fellow Saab lovers, A mechanic has identified a small leak in the radiator causing the coolant reservoir to be used. Before I straight up replace the radiator I went and bought radiator stop leak to see if it could be a simple fix. (2006 9-3 2.oT) My question is where do I put the stop...
  4. Car Problems? 9-5 Only
    Unfortunately my new Saab purchase, '02 9-5 Aero wagon, broke down the other day. I was traveling on the interstate but luckily made it off an exit and pulled into a gas station in the nick of time. Literally rolled into a parking spot. I'd like to mention the symptoms up to and right before...

    Hello all, I have a slow leak from my coolant reservoir and I have identified two possible locations. 1, in the hose from the coolant reservoir to the "T" bracket, and 2, from the back side of the "T" bracket to the engine. Curious if anyone has experienced this before? How much to replace...

    Good Morning I recently acquired a 2005 9-5 Arc with ~58K miles on it. I'm going through the manual & forums, and making a list of the things that need to be done to it, especially since carfax didn't show any maintainence records. Anywho, I have a question about coolant flushing. Should I...

  8. Car Problems? Classic 900 Only
    For some time now I have noticed my 81 turbo sedan has had excessive oil use. This became very clear when I pranged my red 89 900i in Feb and wrote it off, requiring that I start using the 81 turbo car as a daily driver until I fix up another one (got a black 2.1 92 hatchback with engine pulled...
  9. Car Problems? NG900 or old 9-3 Only
    Recently (for the past few months), I've been having my low coolant message on my SID come up, and have been topping it off since. it occurs every week or so, depending on how much i drive it. it's a 97 900s with almost 140k on it. What would you suspect it might be? Thanks!

    So, noticed a coolant smell the other day, ya know the sweet smell. Coincidentally this was the first time I used the heat.

  12. Car Problems? NG900 or old 9-3 Only
    Here's the deal: The heat wasn't working so I changed the thermostat, didnt fix the problem. The car warms up to regular operating temp but when I turn on the heat, cool air blows out. Any ideas what would cause that?? Also, I'm getting small amounts of oil in the coolant reservoir...
