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.

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 ;-)
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
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!

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!
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.
1999 Saab 9-3 SE Convertible - NO START
After a head gasket replacement, my car will still not start. The timing
looks ok (the Exhaust camshaft might
be off by one tooth) There seems to be fuel getting to the engine, the
battery is good, spark plugs are new. What could be wrong with my car?
