  1. 9-5 Workshop
    Hey everyone, Been a long time, and I have recently been thinking about SC as I have just picked up a clone Tech 2 and been messing around with various settings (for example, there is a setting to change the high-mount rear stoplight to LEDs from regular bulbs, cool). Anyway, the question I...
  2. Engine Oil, Lubricants & Fluids
    So my ignorant self from 6 months ago didn't know there was a difference between the orange and green coolants. So I topped off the coolant in my 2005 9-3 with green. Seeing as it was November in Minnesota, I had no issues with cooling. Fast forward 6 months, It is now April and my car has...
  3. 9-5 Workshop
    So I was looking to buy a Jeep/Datsun/70s Corvette last fall, and I was offered a Saab 9-5 by a colleague of my mother for $500 (what a dealer was asking). The car was worth a lot more than that, so I couldn't say no. My original plan was to have it for the winter then sell it in the spring...
  4. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    My 2003 linear has a slight burning rubber smell every once in a while that comes in through the vents. Engine temp stays below 9O'clock mark so it doesn't appear to be overheating. I did just do a coolant flush about 2 months ago and replaced with pentosin and wondered if that might have...
  5. 9000 Workshop
    Hi guys. This is on behalf of my friend, owner of 97 9000. I've been using this car for some time and there's some annoying problem. Heating stops working. Can't say when and why but - if car is cold everything is ok. ACC works perfect. It cools down or heat up. After 15-20 minutes of driving...
  6. NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    Hello, I'm new on the Saab Central. I have a quite strange problem with my Saabs driver seat heating. Few days ago I decided to fix it, found burned out spot so I soldered missing wire, checked for continuity and it was ok. There was about 35C outside so i wrapped it up and waited for colder...
  7. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Im not sure if this is in the right area to post. I drive a 54 Plate SAAB 9-3 120bhp. Now my concern is the engine temp always shows low then what is should. I know in all cars it sits at a happy 90C and in basic terms controls the temp with use of pumping water to the radiator and back in once...
