  3. Turning a 205 into a 235.

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    Sorry about the short explanation it's only the exhaust manifold pulling away from the motor causing this noise. I've got to drill out a broken stud see if I can get the manifold off cleaned up and back on. I'm glad cuz it's a beautiful car. I caught a break.

  5. Turning a 205 into a 235.

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    I have access to plenty of engines at my local junkyard there's no question that I could get a 235 out of a 9-5 really cheap probably for about a hundred bucks. So if that's the way to go I'll definitely do that. So any 2.3 l Turbo motor regardless of year out of a 9-5 will work. I was kind of...
  6. Turning a 205 into a 235.

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    I'm going to pull the motor from this 2003 93 B 205. The motor started ticking pretty badly soon as I'd figured out all the other problems with the car. I'm not sure if it's lifters or if it's valves but I have read that there's no adjustment on valve lash. I only paid $1,000 for the car so I'm...

  10. No acceleration under load!

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    A clogged cat can cause misfires as well as map sensor codes .everything is backing up in to the engine causing all these problems .its possible a partially clogged cat may have been part of the problem .some times especially if raw fuel has been dumped into the cat the honeycomb will break...

    9-5 Workshop
    Wow how strange. I went down the junkyard today to see what they had they had a 2004 9-5 but the ABS module looks nothing like that. I haven't even seen a module in my lifetime that looks like that. I've got to find out what years that module covers 2005 to what because the newer stuff they keep...
  12. No acceleration under load!

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    I'm agreeing there's a good chance that you've got a clogged catalytic converter are you upwards of 135000 miles with an original pipe. I just dealt with this and I've seen it before. The car will get moving but as soon as you try to give it any gas and get it upwards at 25-30 miles an hour...

    I wanted to mention one more thing I believe Javanbra taught me this .most of the older trannys took dextron 3.a lot of people including myself thought it would be ok maybe even better to use dextron 6 as it's synthetic and says it's compatible with 3.i saw you were using the mobil and if I...

  17. Saab 9-5 aero 260 won't start ... only when i jump start it.

    9-5 Workshop
    You would hope that if the direct ignition was failing you'd see misfire codes.have u checked all the smaller vacuum lines for damage.also take a look at the grounds..follow the negative wire on the battery to the body ground and engine ground and clean them .look at the ground that goes to the...

    9-5 Workshop
    I'll tell you what every time I've had something rebuilt it last for less than a year I've had a lot better luck with finding an original in the junkyard that still in good shape and have it last for 10 years. I'm not so sure why that is I'm guessing it's shotti soldering. And what they're...
