  1. Prepping the car for lots of highway miles

    9-5 Workshop
    Your list is good. I drive for a living averaging 600-1000 mikes a week. After 3 1/2 years and 74k only issue I had was fuel pump went out at 125k. My fault as I knew its time was up. I drive so much I changed my oil on average 7 times a year with nearly yearly tire changes as well.
  2. flushed radiator...this came out...

    9-5 Workshop
    Wow. Bummer. There was no way I could see bars leak or similar products causing that. I've used bars leak on older 9000's with good results.
  3. What will be your new ride?

    9-5 Workshop
    I went to the left, or the right depending on where you're standing. Picked up a 08 Volvo S40 T5. Manual. 4 Years with an auto. Miss the manual dearly. Quite enjoy the S40 actually. Bone stock. Had a great time with the 9-5 but sadly I don't see another one in my future. Not a fan of the 06...

  9. Vibration/wheel shakes at 60+mph

    9-5 Workshop
    I've experienced that on two different 9-5's. Seemingly the vibration was always noticeable at 65-70. Slower or faster it went away. One 9-5 was bad tires and balance. The other was a bent rim. Beyond that I'd check drive axles/cv's. Doubt very much it's motor mounts. I've found the 9-5 to...
  10. FOR SALE - 2002 9-5 Aero Wagon

    Cars for Sale - North America
    Putting the car up for sale right now has been a bit of a mistake as I am overwhelmed with work and not in any position to deal with the car for another month sadly. I'm taking it off the market till then - est. 7/15/13 I "assumed" I would get very few inquiries right away from the post. Doh. paul

  12. Cabin Air Filter Replacement

    9-5 Workshop
    Remove the two foam plugs and attach the foam to the filter. It holds it in place when sliding the filter into place.

  16. Brakes and rotors...kit or do seperate?

    9-5 Performance, Mods & Tuning
    Sorry don't have the part number. I'm sure they have 05's. I went with the "premium" cross drilled version. They have black coating and have remained rust free. Worth the extra $.

  18. Brake pressure sound?

    9-5 Workshop
    Sounds to me like brake booster. Normally with a bad booster you hear a hissing sound when pressing the brakes. It was the opposite in my case - hissing sound with car running. Press the brakes and it went away. No noticeable issues with brakes other than sound and eventually it threw a code for...
  19. Replacing tires...What did you get?

    9-5 Workshop
    Liked my Conti DWS's though they were a bit soft on the sidewalls and didn't last that long - 30K. Loved the Michellin A/S Pilots but there's a known issue of "chunking" which is what I experienced. Got barely 20K before I had to replace them under warranty. I have Yokohama YK580's now and am...
