SOURCE: what type of oil on 97 saab 900

If turbo in a temperate climate, use 0W40 or 5W40 synth for year round protection. If naturally aspirated, you can use the same or 5W30. If you live a particularly hot climate, 10W40 will work just fine too, and you might even be well off to go to 10W50, at least in the hottest months. Turbos generate a lot of extra heat which contributes to quick long chain molecule shear down in multi- viscosity oils. Accordingly, a 40 wt oil will quickly thin down to something more like a 30 weight oil. Oil pressure in these cars is marginal at idle, so keeping a close eye on good viscosity is pretty important, as that helps keep pressure up.

SOURCE: how to relace clutch cable on 1995 saab se 900 turboon saab 900se

1. Remove the battery.
2. Remove the clutch cable end from the clutch arm end at the wire stop.
3. Slide out the rubber doughnut from the gearbox housing which holds the clutch cable
4. Move the distribution box nut and the alarm pin attached to it (some modules)
5. Disconnect the clutch cable holder from the fender and the data link holder.
6. Remove the drivers lower panel below the steering wheel and remove the air duct as well as the knee shield.
7. Slide out the fuse box holder and ICE Box (should be a black box with many wires going to it). You can remove the instrument cluster at this point but you can also do this without removing the cluster with a little patience
8. Move the pedal spring to one side and remove the eye catch for the cable.
9. Remove the clutch cable by pulling it out from the engine compartment
10. Reinstall in the reverse. Saab actually came out with a bulletin which Needed one to install two washers at the back of the new cable instead of one. The factory cable comes with one but you can remove the 2nd washer off the old cable and install it on the new cable so two exist. This helps take up excessive pedal slack.

SOURCE: I need an engine diagram for a 1995 saab 900 se V6

A SAAB dealer should be able to print one out for you. BTW that engine is practically identical to the V6 used in a caddy Catera, and Saturn Ion. Those diagrams would be the same, so you might want to search that also.

Motor and trans mount replacements


The part number for the trans mount is the same for the 2, 2.3 and 2.5 liter engines. It is 4356184. It is $51.00 for the aftermarket Febi/Bilstein and $125.52 for the OEM Saab part. The 2.3 liter mount you want to use will work, but only if it came off an auto trans. car. Additional infor available on SaabSite: http://www.thesaabsite.com/900new/NG900mounts.htm
