  1. 9-5 Workshop
    Dear SAAB Family, My 2004 95 Aero threw a rod and has a notch in the cylinder wall so I found a 2002 B235r with a thrown rod bearing but the cylinder wall looks fine and the pistons look good. I replaced the bearing in the 2002 and I am noticing the 02 oil pan is a little different so I used the...

  3. 9-5 Workshop
    Hi, new member here, and couldn´t find anything conclusive yet, so I thought it would be easier to ask. I will soon buy my first car, a Saab 9-5 aero, 235 000 kilometers on the clock, 230 hp. My plans are switching the turbo to an TD05-20G, 395cc injectors and fueling lines etc. How will the...
  4. 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?
  5. 9-5 Workshop
    I've owned 3 Saab's and I'm about to purchase #4 . The trick with this one is that the engine is "bad". It's an '02 9-5 Aero so it has the B235R (right?) and I have another B235R from my "01 Viggen Conv that was in a wreck last month. The 9-5 is an automatic and of course the Viggen is/was a...

    Hey there everyone, This would be my first post here for help. I have a 2003 Saab 9-5 Aero with about 84k miles on it. I bought it used and it ended up having oil starvation issues and the engine is now dead... :cry: I absolutely LOVE this car and am looking forward to learning and...

    Looking for a B235R engine in good working order for my 2000 LB Viggen Vert. Has a bad lower end. In the near future I plan to rebuild the motor with a new block but I would also swap the current one for the right price! Want to get this car on the road! Shoot me a PM or an email at leunig.r...
  8. NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    My 2001 Viggen has a slow oil consumption or leak. While browsing around the block I noticed I have fresh oil coming from the end of the right cam on the back of the block. But more interesting, while looking at pictures of other B235R's online I noticed some have some sort of sensor (I guess)...
  9. NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    Hi all, I haven't been on here in a long time, anyway. My brother was borrowing my viggen a couple of days ago and it has blown off an intercooler pipe. Not knowing what had happened he got it to his mates place, only a block away. I have had a quick look, saw the lower pipe disconnected...
  10. 9-5 Performance, Mods & Tuning
    A friend has a spare b234i block laying around and my timing chain is donzo and I'm sure the chain guides are donzo as well. So I think I'm going to take the b234i as a base to rebuild. Correct me if I'm wrong, but this is the list I have so far. I have a '00 aero b234i crank b234 turbo pistons...
  11. 9-5 Workshop
    My car stopped starting one day. I thought it was the crank position sensor, changed that, and it didn't do anything. I took it to a shop and they showed me the ECU. Is it a common problem for 9-5 ECUs to go bad like this? I'm guessing there's a short in the system somewhere. The Saab dealer...
  12. 9-5 Workshop
    I have a 2001 Saab 9-5 Aero. This is my 4th saab and I really enjoy driving it. Last night the engine took its last breath and will cost too much to revive. Does anyone know if I can put a 2008 B235R engine in my 2001 9-5 Aero? Are there any components that are not compatible? Thanks...
  13. 9-5 Workshop
    While driving home from California last week my 2002 95 Aero just shut off and I coasted to a stop. I had it towed the remaining 50 miles and upon inspection found that there was oil being forced from the dipstick tube. I pulled the DI and the plugs and found that the #1 plug was smashed...
