  1. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Hello, Wondering if anyone could point out a fix for an oil leak I’ve recently discovered. Attached pictures: After degreasing the underside of the engine, I discovered the leak weeping from a small hole in this gasket. (I’m not sure what this gasket is for) It started trickling out slowly...
  2. 9-5 Workshop
    I bought my 2001 9-5 about three years ago and have been dealing with the oil leak since day one. The engine was caked up with oil from underneath. I have replaced some parts to address the leak issue, but it looks like none of the parts I replaced were the leading cause of the oil leak...
  3. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Curious to know what kind of oil consumption issues you all have or don't have and what the mileage/condition of your vehicle is. I have an unmodified 2007 9-3 2.0T. Had the original clutch and leaky rear main seal replaced about 2-3 months/ 3,000 miles ago. At the same time I did an oil/filter...
  4. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    I talked to my SAAB specialist and he recommended 2.5L of this oil (75w80-gl4). Would this work fine for my 6 spd? I have seen a lot of different numbers on different threads such as the 75w90 etc so I am not really sure what to pick. Would his recommendation work fine with my car?
  5. C900 Workshop
    Hello just picked up a really tidy 92 900 sx. Only issue I have right now is my gearbox whine is really pronounced. Sound like it's got a straight cut rally box. Gonna be doing a full service this weekend and was wondering if I should try changing the gearbox oil. Car is currently sitting at...
  6. 9-5 Workshop
    Hello, I have a 2007 9-5 2.3t. My 9-5 was leaking oil from valve cover, which I thought was the only place leaking. Valve cover gasket now replaced, no more oil on the engine head, but the leakage didn't stop. Soon I found out that this little hose was driping oil: I wiped it off couple of...
  7. 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...
  8. 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...

  10. 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...
  11. 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...
  12. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    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...
  13. 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.

  14. 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...
  15. 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...
  16. 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...
  17. 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...

    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...
