    Good Morning 2005 9-5 Arc with 256k miles. I have a small, slow coolant leak on the passenger side of my engine bay, near the coolant pump and turbo. I know there are a few possibilities for locating the leak, and I was hoping to get a little help figuring out what to replace. I've taken a...

  9. Pre 86 900 go fast goodies

    C900 Workshop
    So, everywhere I go, they only offer go fast stuff for 1986+. I have a darling little 1984 8V turbo sedan, and I'd like to add just a bit more oomph to her. I'm not looking to build a Super Saab™ or anything. Maybe boost to 180hp. Just for better freeway speeds. But, it seems I might be barking...

  11. 9000 Stuck Ignition

    9000 Workshop
    I've recently acquired a 1987 Saab 9000 Turbo. The distributor in the car is blown so we didn't bother turning the key when we looked at it. Once we dropped it off at home, I tried to at least get the engine to turn over, but when I put the key in, it wouldn't move at all. I jiggled the...

    9000 Workshop
    I bought a 1994 9000 cse with a manual trans for 900 bucks. The guy that sold it to me was very honest and told me that it would be a project (which i wanted) and said the turbo seemed it was failing, it had a coolant leak, and it smoked on startup. On my way home from buying it, i noticed that...
