I would check the condition of the PCV hoses, if you pinch them and they feel mushy and stay stuck together in a pinched form when you release them then the rubber is breaking down and will cause sludge, if they are firm and bounce back from a pinch I'd just leave it as is.
I should give you more insight: after I got the 9-5, a weird whine started to appear when the car was cold, I suspected it was the sludge. Took it to a shop, to have the pan dropped and cleaned, they did that and also replaced all of the crank bearing, as they were worn. So clearly, the car at some point, had some issues with the oil. That's why I'm looking into the PCV update.
Side question. The car has some weird hissing noise, coming from the passage side of the engine, could that noise be generated by a worn idle pully?
Hi Folks, I'm looking for blend door step motors, for driver and passenger side for a 2004 9-5.
The design of the motors seems different from most other years so it has to be from a 2004. Anyone got any to sell? Thanks
Hello all, very new here first post. As the title states, Is it possible or doable or likely that a 9.3t with transmission, harness and ECU be fitted to a 2002 9-5 Arc wagon 3.0t?? Please advise, thank you very much.
I’ve been chasing spongy brakes for a while and decided to replace the master cylinder. I just did this with no trouble but now there is 0 stopping force from the brakes.
I figured I’d have to bleed the brakes after doing the MC but I didn’t think there’d be 0 braking power. What I’m asking is...
On a late night in July I ran over something on the interstate that knocked a huge hole in my oil pan. I pulled over as quickly as I could but it damaged the engine. I pulled my damaged engine out from the top which was surprisingly easy. I bought a replacement engine and I am just about ready...
I was at the u-pull today when I saw a '99 9-5 T7 with the hood up. The charge air pipe was an aluminum mandrel bent thing of beauty. Photo below.
Well, more beautiful than the black plastic that adorns the OG 9-3 T7.
Was this standard on the 9-5 4 cyl? The EPC isn't very clear although I...
