I need an engine for my saab 9-5 2 litre low turbo. I just got the bad news that i need a new/recon engine. I just bought a new turbo too, and found out that the engine has major problems with cranckshaft. Anyone got any ideas, as ive spent £2600 already on this car and am feeling bad about spending anymore cash than i need to. Its a 1998 R reg saloon 4 door 5gear manual petrol eco engine 2 litre. Thanks:(

Sorry to hear about your problems Saabmandeal. I presume you are a victim of engine sludging, causing the bottom end to die am i correct? If the car has an impecable service history you may have some recourse to Saab, as its a known problem that Saab have recently admitted to. If you have missed any servicing, had it done late then you are gonna be right out of luck.:( You could try to get a short engine from the Salvo group in Ilkeston Derbyshire, or maybe Two Stroke Turbo can help you out. There was a company on ebay recently doing 9-5 engines for £1500 with a warranty. Good luck.
