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.

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
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 ;-)
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. And, If you like my car help, be sure to watch

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?
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!
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.
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.
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.
