A short clip of our SAAB 9-5 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'

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
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.

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!
Saab 9-5 SID LCD Display Repair
My repair of a Saab SID display, which had lost pixels on the LCD screen.
Ultimately, I discovered the ribbon cable had deteriorated beyond repair,
and I purchased a replacement ribbon cable. A $400 unit was fixed for a
little more than $40.
Saab 9-5 2.0T OpenSID w/Engine Mode
Activated OpenSID and Engine Mode on my Saab 9-5.
Engine mode settings are E = Economy, N = Normal and S = Sport.
In this case, E = Lambda-controlled, limited power, about 0,45Bar Boost. N = Normal map, 1,5Bar Boost and S = Normal map + better throttle
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?
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 :-)
