    I'm finding various answers to the question, most from the pre-03 engines. 83 95 691 Flange sealant in the WIS, but can't find the specific product, some people say Right Stuff sealant, others say Loctite 5900, few say red RTV... At the end of the day, does it matter? Shouldn't any pan sealant...

    Hey folks. So for a while now, I've had two oil leaks. One comes from the drain plug (I've replaced the gasket but it steal leaks) and another from the oil level sensor at the other end (towards the front of the car) I've tried a sealant solution that another member did on his 2.8 but no...

    Hello I just rebuilt my 95 engine and I dimwhittedly over tension-ed my balance chain:nono; and it disintegrated my brand new balance chain guides.

    So, Tuesday night while driving to pick up a ride (I drive for Uber) in my '02 9-3 SE w/90k miles, I turned a corner and all the warning lights lit up and it died. I paused, tried to restart, it did, no lights, so I drive about half a block and the oil level light+the red triangle of extreme...

    Hello all, If anyone has seen from my one other thread that I posted a while ago, I have a nice oil leak from the pan gasket so Im trying to remove the pan and redo the gasket and fix the stupid leak that costs me a quart of oil every few weeks. Only problem is that I have the torx bolts and...

    Hey, Just bought a 2001 9-5 knowing that it needed some engine work. Already relplaced the bearings on the rods and mains, and I have new tappets on the way. Only one problem: I still don't know what these chunks of metal are that I found in the oil pan. Three of them look like they are from...

    Hi All, After removing some sludge I have my sump off and can't get it back on. No amount of jacking the transmission is helping. It's less than 2mm from slipping past the transmission and back home but it's no good. Are there any tips anyone has for getting the sump pan back on? Are there any...
  8. 9000 Workshop
    I recently repaired a lack of oil pressure problem that was caused by a clogged pickup screen, after taking of the oil pan and cleaning the components the car was running great, though a couple days ago the lifters, or hopefully one lifter began to start ticking as loud as it was before, then it...

    Well my Saab has been leaking oil for a while now. the bottom off block and surrounding chassis components have been covered with oil as well as oil burning on manifold.

    1996 Saab 9000CS Auto Trans (2.3L turbo.) 240K miles Hello, My son bottomed out cracking the oil pan, and pulled over when the car ‘lost power and barely made it up a long hill’. After failed attempts to braze up the hole in the pan, we removed it and discovered flaky metallic particles in the...

    I plan to remove my oil pan soon. My Haynes manual doesn't say much about it. Anyone know a step by step procedure list on the web? I understand that I have to lower the "subframe"?

    The pan is in good condition. It was taken off the engine at around 85k. I replaced it with a debris/accumulator pan. Make an offer.
  13. NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    I'm currently getting ready to do a bit of maintenance on my car. I replaced a bunch of parts a year ago. A new oil pan (debris accumulator type), brakes, pcv update, hoses, vacuum lines, fuel filter, thermostat, etc. (I know I'm forgetting a few things) The engine runs fine and I change the...
