    C900 Workshop
    Hi all. I'm currently restoring my c900 N/A, I am pretty sure it is running rich. The symptoms are that it blows smoke from the tailpipe, and the spark plugs are all black, despite being almost new. The smoke is worse at startup, but continues when at operating temperature. It smells like...

    9-5 Workshop
    I started my 2001 Saab 9-5 V6 this morning and it turns out it has a very loud knocking/sloshing sound. I had things to do so I drove it anyway. It has not decreased my performance any, which is surprising. I have a bad O2 sensor but that shouldn't cause a knock as far as I know. :x Any Ideas?

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    Last night, while driving home, the Viggen started to sputter and just had a horrible time keeping up speed. When under boost, the CEL started to flash (gasp). I had an appointment with the machanic the next morning to get a new clutch & flywheel installed, so it was timely. ...so I thought...
