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'

Solving 2001 Saab 9-5 ABS/TCS/CEL Problem -EricTheCarGuy
Visit me at: http://www.ericthecarguy.com/
This 2001 Saab 9-5 came in with just about every light lit up on the dash.
The first code I pulled was a P1625 for the CEL which indicates a
communication error between the ABS unit and the PCM. After looking into
this code I found out this is a common problem with these Bosch ABS units.
Rather than purchasing a new unit however I decided to send the existing
ABS unit off to BBA Remanufacturing for remanufacture. Some of these units
require that you pair a new unit up with the PCM, mine was one of those so
sending off my existing unit made the most sense because if I had just
gotten a remanufactured one I would have had to program it to work with the
cars PCM. This took a bit longer but it saved me quite a bit of trouble in
the end. Here are some useful links mentioned in the video.

Saab 9-3 sump drop/turbo failure
After buying a Saab 9-3 with turbo
problems I decided to investigate. The turbo had completely failed. Will post video on
that later. As you can see sump completely slugged with bits of breather
pipe. Anyone with a 9-3 or 9-5 always drop your sump to check. This car
hasn't done a lot of miles and full Saab history.
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
solution to remove it slowly but safely! NEW GUARANTEE.

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
NOTE: Engine steam cleaning is an additional service on top of a complete
detail. Normal completion time for a job this big usually takes between 4-5
hours. Additional fees are also charged for heavily soiled vehicles and to
those older than the year 2000.

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 :-)
