  1. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Hello ! I have a pretty bad oil leak that I believe is coming from the crankshaft pulley seal and or O-ring. The issue I am having is finding the correct O-ring, I am able to find the seal but other than that no luck. Maybe I'm typing in the wrong thing. I looked on a thread and saw someone...
  2. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Good evening guys, I might sound stupid but I can't seem to find an adapter or anything so that I could run a oil temp sensor off the oil pan nut. Basically I wanna be able to watch my oil temps so I know when its safe to run her a little harder, If it helps I think the lug size is 14 x1.5 If...

  4. NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    So I’ve got a 2002 9-3 with just under 200k miles on it. I’ve been plagued with problems since I got it, clutch blew out my second day of ownership and then the sludge problem surfaced. My SAAB mech told me all about the sludge problem, then to put dropping the pan and cleaning the screen out...
  5. NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    Hey guys, this is my second post here today and I am inquiring about the peculiar oil lamp and warning light flickering. Basically, ever since I replaced my car's faulty oil level sensor, the oil lamp, as well as the warning light, will flicker. I've seen many proclaim that its the oil pressure...

    I'm purchasing a 09' 9-3 aero xwd and I'm lining up all the fluids to use for service. The one thing I'm stuck on is the Transfer case oil. The OEM stuff from eeuroparts, where I normally get my stuff, is back-ordered. Does anyone use any 3rd party fluids with no problems? From what I've seen...
  7. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Hi! Recently i bought a saab 9-3 ss 1.8t 2003, its my second saab (before i had 9-5). The 9-3 drives fine but i have one problem with it - when i start the engine, oil pressure lights up for about 1 second.

  8. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    I swapped the spark plugs on my 2.0T to try and fix a misfire problem when accelerating from cruise condition, and I noticed that number 2 and 3 has engine oil on the threads. The plug holes are clean and I already changed the valve cover gasket 2 years ago, so I'm wondering what it might be...
  9. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    "Heady" sound after oil change and cold weather... Turbo gauge only drops to 3 now I just recently got an oil change at Jiffy Lube for my 2009 9-3 Sportcombi XWD 2.0T. For about 1 month prior I was getting an occasional "check oil" warning but I didn't drive it all that much, maybe 300 miles...
  10. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    On a 93 2.0T 2007, I'm trying to remove the oil sump to redo the seal and the oil level sender o-ring, I've got the air charge tube off, all the bolts, even the hidden one, but no matter how hard I try, the dipstick tube is robbing me of victory. I tried pulling on it, but after rereading the...
  11. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    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...
  12. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    hey guys, before i say anything, i have already ordered a blackstone oil analysis kit to do an oil analysis. i did an oil change on my 06 93 with 195k, i spread the oil filter media out to look for carbon, metal or plastic etc. the only thing i saw were a tiny tiny amount of really small metal...

    hey guys. i did my oil change and in the bottom of the oil container i found some solid black grit". I also found a few in the oil filter. to the naked eye, it just looks like regular carbon but unlike carbon, it does not smudge or fall apart. There are only a few of them. my car is a 06 9-3...
  14. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Alright Saab community, I need you guys. A long story short, I have a large amount of oil leaking on the turbo side of the engine that is (of course :roll:) getting onto the down pipe and exhaust, which is smoking up pretty badly. And unfortunately, I haven't been able to source the leak...
  15. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Hello, a couple days ago I was driving my Aero, sped up to pass someone on and noticed it took a second or so longer to accelerate than normal, few seconds later the oil pressure low light displayed on the SID. So I stopped, checked the oil level and saw it was pretty low (just at the bottom of...

    Hey guys, I've recently started running 0w-40 Mobil 1 in my 2L Turbo in my 1989. The car was run with 5w-30 Mobil 1 beforehand. Seems both are good for these engines based on what Ive read, but I seem to have developed a couple very small leaks, including a bit more oil in the turbo piping...

  18. 9-5 Workshop
    I recently purchased a 01 9-5 just as a beater. It has the 3.0 v6, and came with a ton of receipts. I'm not familiar with the v6 saabs, so my father took it for a ride with me and said it doesn't have as much power as it should. When starting it cold, it generally stalls the first try, but...
  19. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    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...
