    Slight emergency regarding my timeframe here, have done some searching but thought I would toss out the specific symptoms and see if anyone is familiar with them. Car is a 2000 9-3 5-spd base model. Yesterday, responded POV to a fire department call and left my engine running with red lights on...

    So my wife got back from running errands tonight & said "you gotta get out here & look at this." Smoke is billowing out from under the hood. Open the hood & I notice the coolant reservoir has split at the seam & is opened up like a clam shell. It doesn't look cracked. Literally split at what...
  6. NG900 & OG9-3 Performance, Mods & Tuning
    (refer to WIS Radiator Fan System- 2 speeds, list of components) Background: I have a 1999 2.0 93 (FPT,LHD). Before recently changing thermostats (Saab or Wahler or better please** see footnote), I didn't realize the old one was just wide open and likely had been for years before I got the car...

    Hey everybody. Last week when I was driving on the hwy, I saw the CEL go on, and watched the temperature gauge quickly fall to the bottom. I pulled over and checked the code. It was a P0116 which is something like "temperature sensor circuit failure". So, I ordered a new thermostat and a new...
  8. 9-5 Workshop
    Hi guys, I seem to have an engine temp problem. 2008 9-5. I was doing a lot of stop and go errands today, and when I left the last store the car did the "bing-bong" and I looked down expecting to see something on the dash or an idiot light. Nothing. Then, when I got home I noticed the fans...

    06 9-5...odd issue that I've seen on the forums but while my symptoms are close, I don't get a CEL ever. SYMPTOMS: On cold days (starting to happen now), the temp gauge will rise to about 1/3 (normal is 1/2) and sit there. If it stays there for about 10 minutes it will drop to...

    So my ignorant self from 6 months ago didn't know there was a difference between the orange and green coolants. So I topped off the coolant in my 2005 9-3 with green. Seeing as it was November in Minnesota, I had no issues with cooling. Fast forward 6 months, It is now April and my car has...

    First off I'm very sceptical of all mechanics. My daughters 2003 saab 95 linaer heat will not enter cabin all piping hot. In june mechanic changed out thermostat because car was overheating, when recently attempted to put on heat no heat. I assumed he replaced wrong thermostat, and i had him...
  12. NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    Hi! I have a 2000 base 9-3 that needs the thermostat replaced. I look in the Haynes manual, and it says that on 1999 and 2000 models there is a rigid pipe that needs to be removed in order to remove the thermostat cover. And when I look at the cover, sure enough there is a support strap...

    I have a 1996 Saab 9000 CS and every now and then my check engine light comes on. Usually when I am stuck in traffic. The code is P0133 which is says is Oxygen Sensor Bank 1 Sensor 1 slow response time. If I have found the right info the sensor should be reading somewhere above and below .4...

    Hi folks! I received a code that told me my coolant sensor is bad. So I did the propers and replaced both the sensor and the thermostat. I've only restarted it a few times since the replace, but the engine light is still on (SID says check is ok). Any thoughts on this? It's happening on a...

    I have a slow "trickle" leak coming from the thermostat housing. I can see the dripping lines down the block. Well two days ago, when returning from a short (10 mile) drive, I lost about .5 gallons from below. Water pump gasket? The plan now is to do some maintenance on the cooling system. I am...

    Within 10 minutes on my way to work in the mornings, my car has white smoke coming out from under the hood. On long interstate trips, there are no issues. The temperature gauge rises to the normal level within a normal amount of time. The white smoke comes up from behind the fan. The coolant...

    Hi all, Long time no problems! Until now... haha I have done some searching about a high temp issue I am having and most results seem to point to having a problem thermostat. The temp in my 03 9-3 (2.0t) started to climb the other day. I didn't notice it until I got a warming on the CID that...

    Hi All, I have a 1996 9000 CSE Auto, only had it for about a week, it used to be my dad's.
