  1. 9-5 Performance, Mods & Tuning
    I recently bought a 2000 9-5 2.3t. I bought it as a cheap beater, not realizing the potential the 2.3's have (I grew up around 900's. I don't know much about G.M. saabs) Eventually I would like to start builing it. I just wanted some opinions on weather I would be better off working with the 235...

    There is a similar thread on this topic, but I didn't want to hijack the OP's thread with my problem. My 2000 9-5 (2.3 lpt, 5speed, 134K) typically starts up very quickly, but this am it took a few extra turns. I drove about 30 mins before shutting it off. When trying to restart after about 15...

    Hello...I've been reading a lot of posts regarding oil leaks from around the valve covers. I've replaced the gaskets to no avail. Oil leaks most prominent when coming to a stop...and leaks down on the exhaust manifold smoking badly from under the hood. My question: Is this open hole just below...
  9. 9-5 Workshop
    I just completed replacement of the turbo. I did prime the turbo before starting. After reconnecting the ignition cassettes and replacing the fuel pump fuse, I started up the motor. It turns over and starts up very quickly... then immediately shuts down. I could only keep it running by...

    Hi all! So this has been a problem that has been bugging me for weeks now and thanks to being short on cash, I haven't had anyone officially look at it. I have a 2000 Saab 9-5 SE wagon that is having an annoying problem. A few weeks ago, I noticed the audio system was acting a little funny...

    Seems like there are others with a similar issue. Pennzoil synthetic Platinum oil is at 4500 miles (mostly hwy.) "JLube guys said its good for 7500"... I seriously doubt it. http://youtu.be/q6sLGzO2ycE
  14. 9-5 Performance, Mods & Tuning
    I've had my 2000 Saab 9-5 2.3L T 5spd for almost a year now and I am just now starting to look at upgrades. 1. The first thing I want to address is the sound, right now it's pretty quiet and doesn't sound too good. I don't want an obnoxious one that sounds like there's no muffler, just one...
