I have a 1991 Saab 900S 2.1 L "212I15BB" non-turbo that needs engine
For the life of me, I can't figure out what's actually required, so
I'm going to buy all the mounts on the car's engine/trans.
Can you tell me which there are?
What I see is :
Front (bushing type? Or hyd?)
Left and right sides
4 total mounts?
Is that all there is? Or is one mount in some cases two pieces?What
do I actually need to replace them all?
Can you help me here?

Re: what engine mounts?
There are three (total) mounts, one in front, and left and right at rear. All are mechanical bushing types. The front one has a bump stop in it. Usually, just the flexible bushing material is replaced if everything else is in OK condition.
You might consider polyurethane mounts if available, supposed to be a little more resistant to oil and give better performance. There is a ploy lube specially for them (such as Energy Suspension poly lube) to stop then from squeaking - apply before install.

Both Auto Zone and Advance Auto carry the plugs you need for your Saab....you can check on-line for the store nearest you...if they don't have them in stock they can order them for you and you can usually get them the same day. I have never had a problem ordering plugs for my 1997 Saab 900S nor for the 1997 Saab 9000 and 1999 Saab 900SE that I work on for friends.....hope this helps.
go to your local saab or gm autostore i would go to my gm store as you know gm own saab and fit it also fits this engine to saab get the oil seal for your lower distributer fit and it should be ok.adrian;;;
Check all battery terminals and 12v power feed connections are clean and tight.
Check all battery chassis and ground connections are also firm and in good order.
Check any in line 'Maxi' fuse connections are firm.
Check for water ingress in any cable loom or bulkhead connector exposed to the water spray.
The '96 900 S denotes the 2.3 liter non-turbo 4 cylinder engine. This car uses Saab part no. 5174990. The aftermarket version is sold for $184.00 and the OEM for $270.00 at SaabSite. The aftermarket Starla/Walker rear muffler is sold at eeuroparts for $159.90 and the OEM for $263.70. You can also find compatible rear mufflers from your local exhaust and brake shops, probably for even less.
you should check your fuel pressure and be sure it is within spec, is this a 2.0T or a 2.3 non turbo and also this is fuel injected correct? same as the U.S.A. 97 saab 900s? if it is a 2.0 with direct ignition try changing out the DI cassette with a friend or junkyard unit to see if that solves it -Jeff also please rate
