    This noise has been happening for about 9 months. What could it possibly be? https://youtu.be/cLsZvKWiBmg
  2. 9-5 Workshop
    Car: 2009 Saab 9-5 2.3T w/150,000mi Problem: Within the last week and a half this noise developed. It pops up when the car is in gear. More frequently when the wheel is turned (almost every time I back out of a parking spot) but sometimes I can hear a rattle when I'm at a stoplight, again with...

    I've stumbled upon a bigger issue than I originally thought. Last summer I thought my water pump had gone out after overheating. Long story short, I pulled the water pump only to find the balance chain, not on the sprocket. I pulled the timing cover to find that one of my guides had been...

    Hello all, I have a 2005 9-3 Linear with the 2.0t, 5 speed manual and 156000 miles on the clock. I just completed the long drive back to school for the fall, and it was uneventful until i got here. Then the clutch helper spring snapped out, and, completely unrelated, the engine started making...

    Hi all, I have a 2009 9-5 2.3t automatic sedan with about 138k miles on it. Last week, a rattle started in the back towards the passenger side. It's most noticeable on bumpy city streets around 30mph or so. I do hear it on the freeway if there's a patch of bad pavement but it's not as bad. I've...

    Hello everyone - I have been having issues of late with my hatch door "clacking" over even the slightest vibrations in the road surface in my 1992 Turbo. It's been driving me insane and makes an otherwise excellent car feel like a total beater.:( I have done the following: -Ruled out knocking...

    My 2000 9-3 SE recently broke down and I had it towed to my mechanic who told me my fuel pump went bad and proceeded to replace that and change the fuel filter. after receiving it that night, the car rattled a lot right on a cold startup. I kept happening for a week so i took it back to him...

    Wondering if anyone has encountered this, or it's a known issue etc. I have a 2008 9-3 convertible (bought second hand last year). I like the car overall, but the one persistent irritation is the intermittent rattling from the roof when it's up whenever there's any moderate vibration in the car...

    So I leave work to grab some eat goods at the local Panda. Stop at the post office. Leave the post office and realize halfway to Panda I'm hearing this ungodly noise emanating from my car: http://youtu.be/7c5C-N9U1SQ Felt no difference in drivability or performance. The noise seems to...

    So, the car is an 88 900t if you hadn't guessed from the username. Anyways, the car makes a rattling noise that sounds like a timing chain, but only after the car has been running, then let sit for a couple hours (not enough for full cool down), then started again. And it only rattles on...
  11. 9-5 Workshop
    Every now and then I can hear a distorted metallic sssshhhh rattle from the left hand side of the car. It seems to happen more after lifting off throttle. From hearing the sound, if I roll in neutral it will stop after 5-10 seconds or so. I first noticed this noise after having a noobtune remap...

    Hi guys, I have a 2011 9-3 Aero that has a little bit of an engine tick at cold start up, it only seems to be noticeable when the temp is below 40F, getting more noticeable as the temperature drops. The idle is very smooth, if I couldn't hear the sound, I would't think there was anything wrong...

    There is a sort of rattle/ticking noise coming from the engine compartment on my V6 9-5 that I can't pinpoint. The noise does not appear to be internal in the engine. It is especially noticeable at idling. The sound quiets down and changes a bit when I turn on the headlights (?). Could this...

    just a quick post, my 2010 9-3 conv developed a most annoying rattle from what appeared to be the dashboard, high up on the passenger side towards the middle. Everytime you accelerated or braked, turned left or right you could hear a small noise, like a screw rolling round in a cup, something...

    Has anyone tried to use WD40 instead of electrical tape to fix rattles/creaks/squeaks? WD40 just seems so much easier to apply than electrical tape...although it does have the smell that takes time to go away.
