  1. 9-5 Workshop
    Hello everyone, I've been at some of the local Saab services in my city, and they told me that the rod and main bearings are usually up to a replacement after 125k miles and also these engines can have a bent crankshaft, my car (04 Aero) has 160k miles on the clock, as i know the bearings has...

  3. 9-5 Workshop
    So just to give an update on this as have now done this job. The Hayes manual says to remove the exhaust in various positions.I think the exhaust would leak if mine was anything go by. I found that there is plenty of stretch on the bands to move the engine on a jack by lifting it under the...
  4. 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...

  6. 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...

    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?
  8. 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...

    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...
  11. 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)...
  12. 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...

    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...
  14. 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...
  15. 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...
  16. 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...
