  2. 2.3t engine discussion/oil leaks

    9-5 Workshop
    Hi all, Just got myself a 2002 9-5 linear 5-speed a couple weeks ago, my first Saab. Love the car so far but of course it's not perfect. Essentially the situation is that I thought I was buying a decent example that was pretty well looked after, but that hasn't turned out to be the case. I am...
  3. 9-5 battery or alternator or something else?

    9-5 Workshop
    Have a 2001 9-5 4-cyl. Started it up yesterday, about 36 hours since it'd last been driven (Wednesday night) didn't start. AAA came, gave me a jump. Took the car to have the battery (which is 3 years old) fully charged and tested--they said the battery was good, was holding its charge...

    9-5 Workshop
    I have a SAAB 9-5 5 speed 2000 wagon and I observed that they've got two types of clusters for the same year and model.
