SOURCE: 93 Saab 900 manual transmission is seizing

check the fluid ( reg oil 5 w 30 or 10 w 30 )by checking the check point when the car is cold ( not run for 6 hours) on the passenger side bold under the exhaust manifold. I think it is 19 mm. you should have 3 quarts. Also there is a filter on the rear cover that has a magnetic trap that needs to be replaced. Also you need the rear gasket if you are taking that panel off. dont reuse paper gaskets! they will always fail.

in that transmission shift gear first, then give gas. it is not very forgiving.

SOURCE: Saab 93 convertible 1999, how do you refill hydraulic roof

To check the oil level open the boot - at the very back remove the 4 plastic clips that hold the carpet in place. Slightly to the left of the center there are 2 holes - shine a light in the bottom and look through the top one to check the level.
To add oil - fold down the seat backrest. Remove the plastic trim - held on by 4 screws and 2 pop out plastic cllips. Undo the 8 large bolts that hold the cover in place - 2 on top and 3 on front and back.Then lift up the cover from the front edge. You will then be able to get to the resevoir - you will need a funnel to poor fluid in.

SOURCE: 2001 saab 93 convertible top problem

If you lower the back seat you will see a plastic cover on the botom of the opening. Remove the cover (6 appolstry fasteners) to reveal a metal box. The box is not actually a box but a cover for the hydrolic pump. Remove the fscrews from the lid and lift. The resevouar is clear and easy to check against the two fill lines on the side.

My car broke down on the motorway and the engine automatically went off and there was no water inside but I put water but it still didn't start


Most modern vehicles will not withstand overheating, and frequently the overheating condition can cause ancillary conditions such as blown head gasket, cracked heads, cracked block, seizing of the pistons in the cylinders, or many other conditions.

Considering the fact that your car became overheated to the point of failure (which should never be allowed to occur on any vehicle), I would seriously recommend towing the vehicle to a competent mechanic for a thorough inspection, to determine whether or not the engine survived the overheating. Best of luck to you!

2001 Saab 9-3 seized engine


Only if overheated bad enough, it could seize up the engine. But if it was seized, there is no way to do a compression test. ?? Take the bas***** to court. If truly no compression, the engine is shot, they didn't overlook anything, but they should be liable for a new engine- a warranty is a warranty or it is worthless. Sue them!

2001 Honda civic overheating, losing coolant, damp passenger floorboard


Damp passenger floor sounds like a heater core. What a pain in the a__. Most probably the dash has to come out to replace. That is the only thing I know of that circulates engine coolant into the passenger compartment.
If you confirm this and want to fix it on the cheap, you can put a crossover hose in the engine compartment and bypass the heater core entirely. This is a $5 fix that works perfectly, mechanically speaking. Unfortunately, you will have no heat. Of course, you may decide that is a better option once you hear a quote on getting the heater core replaced.
Oh yeah, get a new mechanic.

My 01 Nissan Altima overheated because of a broken heater hose. Now my car won't start.


When a car overheats it can do serious damage to the engine internals, including completely seizing the engine. It is common for overheating to blow a head gasket which would explain the bad starting. Unless you know how to diagnose these issues, you will need to take it to a repairer for an assessment. Be prepared for some very bad news.

2001 Saab SE red engine light and oil can, possible throttle


first off your mechanic sounds like he's taking you for a ride! If the oil lights coming on you need to check your oil pressure. I wouldnt drive this car anymore till I knew for sure I was getting good oil pressure through out the motor. Find a different mechanic! Mechanics are some of the biggest lying thieves! Right up there with lawyers.

Overheating issues for a 2001 grand jeep cherokke


If it was overheating at freeway speed then it is a clogged radiator. Another cause of overheating is a timing that is retarded. These can be caused by worn timing components etc, although a possiblity it is highly unlikely on your car.
