Transmission over temp light comes on. transmission works fine but once went into limp mode


have a pressure test done on the box to check for internal faults. Any high pressure leaks will cause heat. check the filter and while the pan is off adjust the bands and clutch packs . Check the radiator cores are not blocked as engine temperature will affect the transmission oil temperature . check oil level as extra oil will cause frothing and over heating.

Saab 2001 95 the oil light flickering after driveing 60 miles and i have\r\noil in it.


This is an known issue with this engine. The Oil pickup screen is clogged from using non full synthetic oil and / or not being perfect with oil changes. a sludge builds up and clogs the oil pump screen starving the engine from oil. If you continued driving it after the oil light came on you likely need a new engine. Otherwise you need to have the oil pan dropped and the screen cleaned and the engine checked out for damage.

What is the check gauges light


CHECK GAGES light (1) indicates a potential engine failure(low oil pressure, low coolant, coolant overheating) has occurred.
· Check gages and shut down engine. Gages should read as follows: Oil pressure 5 to 10 psi (34 to 69 kPa) at idle; Water Temp gage below 230 degrees (110 C).
· Check engine oil level (Para 2-11) if OIL PRESS gage indicates low reading. Check coolant level (Para 2-11) if Water Temp gage indicates high reading. Notify Unit Maintenance if levels are low.

If CHECK ENGINE light (2) is on, check engine oil pressure gage (3) and water temperature gage (4). If both indicate normal, proceed with mission and then notify Unit Maintenance. If either one does not indicate normal, stop engine immediately and notify Unit Maintenance

Driving in very hot weather, stopped at light,


you may have blown the head gasket.
or
check the coolant level,is it low?
if it is ok,check the fan switch on the radiator,change the thermostat,and check that the fan is working.
the fan has to work,saab engines run very hot.
there is a after run fan switch as well that measures engine compartment temperature,and can start the fan even with the car off,so be careful.

when you travel over 65 mhr for long lenghts of time you don,t work the engine enough to move the fluid to lubricate the engine also when you go on long trips make sure the oil life is still gonna be good for the hole trip

2001 Saab 9-3 Convertible Check Engine Light


I have been driving my SAAB 9-5 with an engine light on for 3 years. I consistently get 29mpg average so I don't worry about it. I just change the oil, check the fluid levels and keep going. It is probably an O2 sensor and until your gas mlg suffers, I wouldn't. The dealer will hit you with a $90 diagnostic fee no matter what.

If you think this helped you please leave me good feedback.
