2001 Saab 9-3 seized engine

I bought a 2001 Saab 93 (automatic) -- four days later the engine overheated. I pulled over immediately & never drove the car again. The radiator wouldn't hold coolant so I had it towed. The dealer had issued a full warranty on the engine but is claiming negligence, thus refusing to fix. Two questions, is it possible for the engine to seize from one overheating? I don't think the mechanic knows what they're doing. Secondly, could the problem be something they're overlooking. They say there's no compression and the engine won't turn on. Thank you!

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 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.

My 2003 Saab 9-3 drives sluggish.


Take your car to the dealer, local garage, auto parts store and get them to pull the code which should tell you exactly what the problem is. I would also check the transmission again and make sure it isn't leaking and is at the correct level. If the problem was low transmission fluid you still need to have the code "cleared" before the car will return to normal. Hope this helps.

2001 SAAB 9-3 SE won't send signal to start


Is your SAAB automatic? If so, it is most likely the Neutral Safety Switch. I have had the same problem, it is very common in automatic Saab 9-3 models made in 1999-2002.

Headlight replacement 2000 Saab 93


To replace the headlamp on a Saab 9-3, open the hood. Behind the headlamp there is a round black plastic cover; screw clockwise and pull back; there is a metal clip holding headlamp in place (9003 i believe is the halogen number). locate top of clip and move very slightly clockwise; the top will pivot down on a hinge; release the wire harness and pull out bulb. Retrace these steps to introduce the new bulb to your Saab.

Hope this helps. Please leave a rating! FIXYA!
