SAAB 9-3 Head Gasket/Sludge Repair
This video is put up specifically for the SAAB Central Forum. It's a head gasket replacement and sludge cleaning process for my wife's 2002 9-3 Viggen. Sorry about the wind noise. The maintenance was performed outside. Follow-up to this video is 3 months later there are NO leaks of any kind and the engine is super fast :)
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.
2001 Saab 9-5 with 67,000 miles, clicking noise in top end
clicking noise Ran MMO in the crankcase for 20 minutes at idle. No improvement. Wanting to do something, I changed out the crank rod bearings. A few were worn a bit, but not the issue.
saab 9-3 no start
Car died on the highway last night, trying to find the culprit.
