  1. Saab 9-2X, 9-4X & 9-7X Workshop
    My 2011 9-4X Aero had catastrophic engine failure at 90K miles. This is an automatic. Head removal revealed hole in a piston. I need a replacement engine or short block. Can anyone confirm any of the following: 1) the GM part number for the short block is 12635736, 2) the complete...
  2. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    So don't hate on me if this has already been brought up because I tried searching for this but didn't really quite know how to go about it. It doesn't seem like this is really public information but more for the dealers and the techs since these aren't really recalls but more bulletins for how...

    So I have an 07 9-3 Aero and like everyone else I guess I've discovered the Ignition Coil problem. Except it has taken me forever to discover that's what the problem is because every time I got the codes read they would always tell me it was a problem with my fuel pump. Finally I got the right...

I am still covered under the 10 year warranty but it doesn't help me much because there is no one in my area that will do warranty work on Saabs. The closest GM/Saab dealership is 3 hours away and I'm not driving all the way there on a broken...

  7. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Hi For people who know me, I was suppose to sell the car, but I haven't found a buyer, so I am keeping it. I have this strange issue, I removed the intake bolts for embarrassing reasons then quickly put them back. The one on the left side of the engine wouldn't go fully down as shown in the...
