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.
Fatal high speed police chase - Unmarked SAAB 9-5 Aero vs Kawasaki ZX-10R *Translated*
***EDIT This video doesn´t show the crash! At 47:57 the chopper report the
bike has wrecked. There is no pics of the bike after the crash in this
video. Subtitles is only availible first 20 minutes.
This guy did only have license to drive cars, caught riding a bike can
result in a 6 month ban. Speeding at 81 km/h over the limit (and more) will
revoke your license for 8 month. Bottom line, many riders going fast on
1000cc sportbikes will run. Choppers are used rarely to catch speeders***
A Kawasaki ZX-10R fly by an unmarked SAAB. The biker has no mirrors and
ain´t aware of he is being followed by the police.
At 14.30 the bike starts to pick up the pace.
At 17.10 he looks back and guns it. Soon he is gone and this unit doesn´t
have the bike insight again. Although the bike is far away this unit
continues to chase him for 30 minutes. More than 20 unites including a
chopper were involved in this chase.
A heating debate started in Sweden if police acting appropriate due to the
fact this was only a traffic violation. The biker died in the end when he
slammed into a road barrier, the passenger didn´t suffer any injuries. The
rider was just a regular chap going out for a ride on his ZX-10R equipped
with a Racefit Growler
Nothing happens in the last 20 minutes, just radio traffic
theSAABguy Repairs: 2002 SAAB 9-5 Blower Motor or Fan Speed Controller
In this video I replace a Fan Speed Controller on a 2002 SAAB 9-5. I began
the job believing it could just be the blower motor (which is easier), but
after plugging in the good blower motor I diagnosed the Fan Speed
Controller to be the true culprit. Here is a link of the part which needed
to be replaced: http://www.eeuroparts.com/Main/PartDetail.aspx?id=4869319.
You can follow the directions as seen in this video for both the blower
motor and fan speed controller. However I don't show what I did under the
dash which was the trickiest part.
Enjoy your SAAB.
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.
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.
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!
2003 Cavalier Timing Chain Tick Repair
NOTE: This is NOT a how-to video. We didn't know what needed fixed until we
took stuff apart. Spare me your butthurt about "you should have explained
what you're doing" comments. It is what it is.
A little montage of the repairs my friend Kevin and I made on my 2003
The Cavalier suffered a failed tensioner which created too much slack in
the chain, creating the ticking sound. After replacing it and a few other
components, the engine runs and sounds great.
Please note that one should ALWAYS replace the chain, sprockets, oiler and
tensioner in one go.
