    Hi, question related to the sludge issue in the B205/B235 engines. I realize there has been a lot of discussion about this already, but unfortunately I'm not very knowledgeable about car repair...doing my best to understand this particular issue... I bought a 2001 9-3 1 yr ago. Recently the oil...
  2. 9-5 Workshop
    I decided to perform the glove test on my new-to-me 2005 9-5 Arc and the results were surprising; the glove inflated like a balloon! A video can be seen here: I checked the check-valve between the oil-trap and the throttle body (P/N 5955927) and it seems to functioning fine. I have a minor oil...

    My son is moving to Denver in his 2001 9-3 and is on the road now. It seems he has a problem with the PCV system and has hacked a temporary solution. He is leaving Columbus OH now heading for St. Louis with the hope of getting to Denver late Monday. Any recommendations for SAAB mechanics in...

    My son is moving with his girlfriend from New Jersey to Denver in his 2001 9-3 SE with 90K miles. They made it to Columbus OH yesterday but were held up along the way with what appears to be a problem with the PCV. Someone at an Advanced Auto parts store helped them by kludging together a...

  6. 9-5 Workshop
    2006 9-5 2.3l auto So, long story short, had a few pcv hoses disconnected that I found. It all started with a repair for the broken check valve. Anyhow, I ended up doing the repair for the entire oil trap, the large one for 04+. I tried the "out the top" method before learning that the out the...
  7. NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    Hi. Just got a 2001 SAAB 9-3 and am wondering if the PCV update situation is correct. I hope I attached my photos properly. In them, one would see there is a plastic stem coming out of the oil neck. The traditional white valve line comes off the oil neck via an elbow attachment, and goes down...
  8. 9-5 Workshop
    One evening my car started running rough, but I had to drive across town to pick up my kids so I pressed on. By the time I got to them it was worse, but still moving. Shortly after getting the kids, it overheated, the steering got real tough, oil overflowed from the oil fill cap, and the...

  10. C900 Workshop
    I've got a question about the PCV system on a 1990 900S. Looking at the black plastic nipple that is installed in the valve cover, there are two barbed hose attachment points. One is large and has a hose that runs to the throttle body upstream of the throttle plate. The other is small and has...
  11. 9-5 Workshop
    The car was running poorly recently, especially since a week ago, and throwing intermittent P0300 and P1181. I thought I'd start with the cheapest fix (Vacuum). When I removed the engine cover to inspect them, I noticed that my PCV is completely banjaxed - see this thread. My mechanic...

    Hey, ya'll. If you check my posts, you can see what is up. I can really use some assistance. Fresh battery, oil change, good coolant. Current concern is changing out the DIC & plugs, not such an issue. Need to check the oil sump & PCV lines - any help around?
  13. NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    I currently own a Saab 1998 900 SE Turbo with an idling problem. After a few minutes of idling, the engine seems to "chug" every 15-20 seconds or so. Every once in a while, the entire car actually stall out. I have replaced the IAC valve and PCV nipple, as well as checked for vacuum leaks using...
  14. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Hi everyone. I'm going to attempt to keep this as short as possible, but I need everyone's help and experience getting to the root of the problem. My 2007 2.0T at around 85k needed new intake valves, so I did the job myself (scary, I know). Guess what? Ran like a champ! Awesome! About 2k...

    OK guys, here's a PCV related question with a pic. I did the #6 update a couple of weeks ago. Tonight I cut open the old hose. This picture shows the top (right where it plugged into the valve cover). Here is what it looked like: Now, before I panicked I remembered that car's PO had sludge...

    2000 9-3 base auto Hello everyone. After about 30-35 min of spirited driving my oil light came on, flickering. I pulled over immediately and shut the car off. I noticed that the PCV breather was torn almost completely off and dangling near where it connects to the banjo hardline on the turbo...
