theSAABguy: Replace Timing Chain Guides and Balance Chain/Guides in a B235

This is a video of replacing the timing chain guides and balance chain and guides in a B235R out of a SAAB 9-5 Aero. This procedure was obviously done with the engine out of the car, but it can be performed in car.

2000 Saab 9-5 engine removal through top
My brother and I haphazardly proceed with a DIY B235 engine swap (out the top as opposed to our previous method of dropping the subframe). This is not a DIY instructional, but 2 guys doing work on an unfamiliar brand, with limited time and facilities. This footage was condensed from 90 minutes of work. In retrospect, I would have done this outside. The garage is just under 8 feet so clearance was an issue for the hoist. Also, the transmission leaked the entire time - watch for the encroaching pool of fluid! Learn from our experience and read up on the procedure well: we had not removed all the brackets and stud mounting from the transmission which would have made things go much, much faster and safer. Lots of effort was spent trying to get the leveler to return from its extreme angle, but we had a cheapie from HFT. Definitely most efficient as a 2-man operation.

Cylinder Head 105 - Valve Job Basics
Valves not sealing? Valves not bent? This is how you fix that problem. In this video I outline the basic valve job procedure. Cleaning the valves, cleaning the seats, cleaning the combustion chamber and lapping the valves in to make a better seal. Here I cover the process start-to-finish. It's the same exact process for pretty much all non-rotary combustion engines. It takes patience and perseverance to do this job, but anyone can do it. Reference your service manual for measurements and service limits. Everything else that's not in your service manual is in this video. I apologize for not having broken busted crap to work with in this video. It's more beneficial to all of you when bad fortune falls on me because it gets well documented, and many people watching these videos are looking for answers. If you have bent valves, you will discover it quickly once you chuck one up in the drill. You'll see the face of the valve wobble around while it spins. You'll see evidence of this damage on the valve seat. If it's bad, you may see damage on the valve guides in the form of cracks or missing pieces where the valve guides protrude through the head ports. Give all that stuff a good visual inspection. ...and if you doubt yourself, never hesitate to get a second opinion or consult a machine shop. They will have access to expensive tools that you wont find in your average gearhead's garage.





More Problems With the 2000 Saab 9-3 (Smoking, Test Drive, etc.)
Well many of you have seen all the other videos on this car and seen that we replaced the turbo in it a little while ago. After sitting for an extended period and battling to get it started with a dead battery, when I took it for a drive it started smoking, more and more. Today, 1 day later after I drove it, we started it up and no smoke was to be found. Weird, we'll have to check it out more to make sure everything is right with it. but like I said, today, everything was totally fine so idk if the oil/gas mixture got screwed up or something from sitting so long with little to no gas in it (had to fill it up before the drive) or what. We shall see I guess! Let me know what you guys think!

Finding If A Timing Belt Or Chain Is Worn.
Scotty Kilmer, mechanic for the last 45 years, shows how you can find out if the timing belt or timing chain on your engine is worn. It's a relatively expensive job replacing them, so you don't want to spend all that money for nothing. It's a pretty simple job checking them for wear, Once you know how to do it.

Ecotec 2.2 Timing Chain guide broken
This 2.2 just stopped running one day. It will crank but not fire. A compression check showed 0 on all cylinders. When the engine was cranked there was a loud ticking sound. I pulled the timing cover and this is what I found. None of the timing marks line up. I think the head is probably shot. I got the car for 170.00US so it might be worth fixing.





Saab 9-3 cylinder head retorque
I'm showing how to do the cylinder head bolt retorqueing on a Saab 9-3 but this will work for 900 (1994-1998) Saab 9-3 (1998-2003) and Saab 9-5 and maybe the 9000. It's very vague but it shows how and what to do.





Boat with 2 Saab's turbocharged engines
Boat: Vator 22 ft. with two turbocharged SAAB B234 engines. It's my cousin's boat and he has made most of effort on this job. My cousin has followed my standing mile races with my Saabs for years now. Late 2010 he said that he will get rid of his old Mercruisers and put a Saab's engines instead, if I help to tune those for a boat use. So here we are :) These are an early tests and we are looking forward for summer 2013 ;-)





Yes, You Can Build a Sick Vintage Rally Car - AFTER/DRIVE
Ever wanted to go back in time, when screaming two-stroke Saabs were the kings of rally? Find out how you can, with Bruce Turk, Saab jedi-master and vintage rally dude. On the car's specs Bruce adds: "It now has a 850cc three cylinder two stroke motor that started life as a 750cc but the block was bored out to 850cc. It has Monte Carlo 850 pistons, a GT 750 crank shaft, a dual Solex "Super kit Carb, lightened flywheel, heavy duty clutch (extra springs added) fully ported intake and Exhaust ports to rally spec II specifications and a Spec II rally 4 speed Saab gear box which is very rare I might add... Oh, estimated HP is 60 BHP" If money were no object, what vintage car (of any era) would you most want to race/rally?

theSAABguy Review: Pixelfix.net Replacement SID Ribbon Cable
This is a review and trail of a replacement ribbon cable from pixelfix.net. If you own an older SAAB 9-3 or 9-5 you probably don't have all your pixels on your SID- SAAB Information Display. Amazing results! Check out my other video... it shows the entire process from start to finish... http://youtu.be/8nmOxskkg_w





Saab 9-3 sump drop/turbo failure
After buying a Saab 9-3 with turbo problems I decided to investigate. The turbo had completely failed. Will post video on that later. As you can see sump completely slugged with bits of breather pipe. Anyone with a 9-3 or 9-5 always drop your sump to check. This car hasn't done a lot of miles and full Saab history.
