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.

Seafoaming a Saab 9-5 aero
We was getting our car prepped for a cruise the upcoming weekend and my
soldier wanted to seafoam his saab. Yes it supposed to smoke, thats all the
carbon build up being burnt out of the system.
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
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.
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 ;-)
Saab 9-5 climate control repairs
My repair of the dual zone climate control system, where one side was stuck
on heater only. I used the on-board diagnostics to identify problems. Both
sides required work for a complete repair.
Saab 9-5 SID LCD Display Repair
My repair of a Saab SID display, which had lost pixels on the LCD screen.
Ultimately, I discovered the ribbon cable had deteriorated beyond repair,
and I purchased a replacement ribbon cable. A $400 unit was fixed for a
little more than $40.
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.
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
Blown Head Gasket Saab 9-3?! Start Up With LOTS of Smoke
Well a lot of you probably remember the 2000 Saab 9-3 Hatch back that we
had at the dealership a couple of months ago. Well something happened to
the engine to where it just billows an un natural amount of pure white
smoke! They brought it back so we can get it fixed for them. In this
video I try and assess what's going on and see if you all have any
suggestions on what it could be before we send it to the shop. Dad also
pulls it around and sees for him self. we're thinking it's a head gasket
and maybe a motor mount or a tranny mount. Post below what you guys think
it is and I'll let you all know when we find out. You will see what I mean
and how bad this thing is haha, enjoy!
