You are describing a major coolant(anti-freeze) leak. Look for the source. Did engine temperature start to climb before the noise? Was the engine at operating temperature(if yes, rules out stuck shut thermostat)? White steam could have been sucked in from under the hood in through the air vents,
If coolant is on floor inside car, look at heater core or hoses leading to it for leaks.
If coolant is on ground, look at upper and lower radiator hoses, heater hoses, radiator, coolant expansion tank. Less likely: water pump. Least likely: freeze out plugs.
Causes: hoses and or hoses may be old (car is 12 years old-have they ever been replaced?)

My saab 900 se t. 96 wont go into reverse and the shifter is very sloppy


I am not a mechanic, although I have worked on cars in the past' I think by your description, the problem lies in you linkage between the shifter and transmission.

The fan does not turn on when I turn on the a/c or heater in my 1996 saab 900 se


It's most likely the blower motor resistor or relay. My money is on the resistor. It's a pretty common issue on all makes and models of vehicles. I'm not sure where yours is located. Domestic cars and trucks have them on the top of the blower motor housing which is behind the glove box on the passenger side. A few torx bit screws remove the box liner, and a socket removes the couple of nuts holding the resistor on. Other than that, it's just a pigtail wire harness that plugs into it. Pretty easy job. The resistor for your vehicle (96 Saab 900 SE) is $53.99 locally here in Minnesota.

If the noise is just a spinning sound and not a grinding, than you're starter solinoid is probably bad.
You're best bet is to replace the starter. Hope this helps.
