    Has anybody run into this after rebuilding an engine? Coolant isn't getting through block....or is it... All hoses get warm expect the ones after thermostat that go to the radiator. Yet when I drain the radiator all the coolant leaves the lines. I thought it was the new thermostat so I...

    I recently changed the coolant bypass valve and it appears that wasn't the issue. Also looks like the vacuum hose that connects on the top needs to be replaced as well. I now believe I found the source of the leak and am trying to find the correct replacement part. (see pic) Any help is...

    This is my first post on the forums, if I have placed this in the wrong place I will apologize in advance. After typing everything I realise that its a relatively long post so bascially: My car (2002 saab 9-3 2.0l) died out while driving, after a jumpstart I drove home keeping the rpms high...
  5. 9-5 Workshop
    Hello all, I'm having an issue with my 2001 9-5 aero. The car started leaking coolant a few weeks ago so I've been filling it up every 4 days or so when the fill coolant light comes on. I got under the car and saw that the leak is coming from the Turbo. I was wondering if anyone else has had...

    Engine Stumble Hey guys, I have a 2003 Saab 9-3 Vector with roughly 125,000 miles on it. An engine swap was performed on the car with the engine from a 2004 Saab 9-3 Linear 2.0t (175hp) but the exhaust is that of the 03 vector. The car misfired once not too long after the engine swap to the...

    Hi Lads, Since I got my 9-5 Griffin I have had a regular message low coolant level come up on SID. Whilst this was regular but it took a while to come on. Recently did 1000mile no message. There was no heat initially when I got the car but temp gauge came up quickly to midway. I Burped the...

    Hi guys, I have a 2006 Saab 9-3 Sedan 2.0T. Every few weeks the "Coolant Level Low" message comes on and I need to fill up my antifreeze. I saw some posts talking about TSB's for this, but I couldn't find it for the 2006/2.0T. Any suggestions on what it could be or what to do. Thanks.

    Hi All, Hoping for some insight here. My '02 9-3 SE AT is having a mysterious coolant leak that I cannot figure out. After regular summer driving (95+ degrees out) "Vlad" will dump about 2 cups of coolant on the garage floor AFTER he's mostly cooled down. This means that after he's parked...
  10. 9-5 Workshop
    Aloha, I have a 2002 9-5 Linear. About 3-4 months ago, I kept losing coolant and kept filling. My boyfriend looked and noticed that the fans weren't turning on, which is why the coolant would bubble-out and down the road when I turned the car off. We replaced the relay for the fan(s) and all...
