A short clip of our SAAB 9-5 2.0T which has developed a rather annoying high pitched whine until warm.
This problem (from what I've been reading) stems from oil sludge building up in the sump which will eventually starve the engine of oil. Heres to hoping its not quite that serious.
The car is a 1999 and has 156k miles on the clock.
How to Rebuild a Turbo - Part 1 of 2
Rebuilding a td05h 16g turbo. This
process can be applied to many journal bearing turbochargers. :) It definitely comes in handy to
know how to do this when you are in this type of hobby.
4/25/12: Small explanation on the balancing of the rotating assembly since
I get so many comments regarding it. This particular turbocharger, td05h, has its rotating assembly
components balanced separately. This means each individual part (compressor
wheel, turbine wheel/shaft) gets balanced separately. This allows for easy
interchangeability of parts in case they need replacing. This is why I am
able to install a td05 20g wheel on this turbo without having to balance the entire
rotating assembly. THIS IS NOT THE CASE FOR ALL turboS OUT THERE. You need to research whether
your specific turbo (if it's not td05h)
was balanced as an assembly or "component balanced" like I explained above.
I hope this information helps. Good luck in your projects. Stay Boostin'

Engine Cleaner and Sludge Remover
Did you know that 95% of vehicle problems are caused by build-up of
contaminants like carbon, sludge, dirt, and abrasives in the engine? These
contaminants combine with engine oil and heat to create uneven hot spots
and extremely harmful by-products. The contamination process has already
begun in the first 25,000 miles of your engine's life. Now, there's a

AJs vs The Soiled SAAB
AJs took on the complete detail challenge of this 1995 SAAB 900. The car
was used as a commuter vehicle through the red dirt roads of Mendocino
County. The customer was hoping to sell the car and needed a professional
to handle this extreme detailing job. Watch to see the amazing

How to reset a Saab B235R throttle body from Limp-Home-Mode
This is a very easy how-to on resetting a throttle body from limp-home-mode
for most OG9-3 and NG900's (and some 9-5's). The dealership will charge you
LOTS of money for this simple 5 minute job. You will also have to have the
check engine light reset, but you can get that done for free usually at
Auto Zone or Advance Auto Parts, or if you have an OBDII scan tool,
clearing the codes will clear the code & light that a reset throttle body

Saab 93 2000MY - strange noise - SOLVED!
Strange noise coming from the engine compartment - starts about 20 secs in
- seems to start after when the engine's good and warm but not
related to revs. Comes and goes - any ideas?
Update 30/11/08. A few weeks after I posted this clip, one of the idler
pulleys seized and the drive belt disintegrated at a repair cost, inc
recovery, of £250! However, this was NOT the cause of the noise on this
clip... the clutch bearing on the AC compressor was found to be worn - this
needed a new compressor - £250 if you hunt around - and a further £180 to
fit and re-gas. Owning Saabs is apparently not cheap :-)
