  1. 2003 manifold new studs loose / wiggle

    9-5 Workshop
    While I have not snugged anything down yet, the ARP studs are a world of difference! They thread in with almost zero play and should completely solve this issue :) Question: Do you torque the studs in the head or only the nuts on the studs? I was thinking I would just hand tighten the studs &...

    Just ordered a set of ARP studs. I'll let you know how it goes :-)

  4. 2003 manifold new studs loose / wiggle

    9-5 Workshop
    Thread Class - didn't know that was a thing until now. So as I have an old stud with the correct fit, how do I measure it so that I can identify & source the correct replacement?
  5. 2003 manifold new studs loose / wiggle

    9-5 Workshop
    hmm....hadn't thought of that as the new M8 stud fit (almost) and the olds stud fit M8 nuts perfectly....but maybe. What size would be that close to M8 to nearly fit? I'll start googling for a conversion chart...

    Received a new set or ProParts studs and they are the same - loose. Went and purchased some M8 1.25 All Thread to test and it is still not as tight as the old studs but a much better fit than the new ProParts studs. Thinking I'm going to source some GM or universal studs of similar length to...

    9-5 Workshop
    Yep - really strange. Someone local suggested that the threads might have stretched...but it doesn't make sense to me that the old studs and head would stretch to match...I just don't think that is possible. I've ordered another set of studs to see if it was a bad batch. I'll have them tomorrow...
  8. 2003 manifold new studs loose / wiggle

    9-5 Workshop
    So I went down and grabbed some M8 1.25 nuts. They fit both new & old manifold studs...but the new studs are loose and the old studs are SOLID - no wiggle room yet screw on smooth with no binding. So are the new bolts just cut with lots of slop? This doesn't seem right. With a couple of the...

    9-5 Workshop
    It was rebuilt in the past, got 183 k on it now. Guess I'll take a new bolt and an old bolt down to the shop and see what we need to get the right bolts :-) nothing about the old ones look weird.

    Part# 21347280 unless I'm missing something, I have double checked and this seems to be the right part when every website I visit. It definitely appeared to be the right parts when I opened it up.

    9-5 Workshop
    I've got a 2003 and I'm replacing the exhaust manifold gasket. Got the old studs out, ordered a new set of studs from www.eeuroparts.com. The new studs are loose as they screw in. Even all the way threaded is still wiggle/move. Obviously the wrong size. Why? visually the old stud thread and new...
  12. 2003 Aero Turbo replacement - compatible years

    9-5 Workshop
    I'm in need of a new turbo for my 2003 9-5 Aero. I've found a low miles pull (58k) from an 06 B235R 9-5. I'm thinking this will work - Will this bolt right up?
  13. what year/model transmission is compatible with my 2003 Aero?

    9-5 Workshop
    Just did a fluid swap after 500 miles on the new transmission. The fluid coming out was perfect looking 🙂 Will probably do your again at 20k with a magnafine filter replacement. Car is running great. Not sure I like the Poly subframe bushings...a little stiff. Might need new tires as I've got a...

    Remote cooler...in addition to the factory cooler or as a replacement to the factory cooler?
  15. what year/model transmission is compatible with my 2003 Aero?

    9-5 Workshop
    We didn't drop the engine...but if your engine is suspended just put a floor jack under the transmission with wheels rolling away and use it to hold the trans up as you balance it and pull it away from the engine. Not much holding it together and you shouldn't be in any danger of dropping it...
  16. what year/model transmission is compatible with my 2003 Aero?

    9-5 Workshop
    Wrapping it up I've installed the new transmission (14 years on a pallet) and replaced trans seals, engine rear main seal, and a few other items while I was under there. Transmission made what sounded like a pump noise for about 10 seconds after first start (maybe it was priming?) and then...
  17. Inline Transmission Fluid Filter - opinions?

    Engine Oil, Lubricants & Fluids
    What is your thought on Inline Trans Filters? I'm running a Magnefine inline filter on my '03 9-5. Good idea or bad idea?
  18. what year/model transmission is compatible with my 2003 Aero?

    9-5 Workshop
    What type of lubricant do I need to use on the output shaft & TC seals? Also, is there a good trick to removing the shaft seals? I pulled them off the old transmission and they were a pain. I'd like to make sure I don't damage anything when pulling them off the new trans and installing the new...
  19. what year/model transmission is compatible with my 2003 Aero?

    9-5 Workshop
    Merry Christmas all! Question on the Torque Converter: does it pull off easily? Do I Need to replace a seal on it? I've never pulled a transmission. The one I've purchased includes one and has a clamp holding it in place it seems. I know I need to remove the clamp to install the transmission...
  20. what year/model transmission is compatible with my 2003 Aero?

    9-5 Workshop
    Transmission ordered :) I've sourced a low miles (1000) revision C04 from an '04 2.3T for what I think is a good price. I guess it was pulled when the car was damaged & dismantled nearly new and has been sitting around. Hopefully I can find time before Christmas to get it installed and be back...
