The fan is not comig on in my 1995 saab 900


Fans come off and on based on a thermostat usually installed on the radiator. Follow the wiring from the fan to the thermostat. Test by heating and an ohm or continuity meter.

Where is the thermostat in a 900s oh. 97 saab 900S Well my car was overheating and I notice in this model car if you need your oil changed it will overheat. So there is oil and all my fluids are full...


Oil change interval has nothing to do with operating temperature. If your coolant is full, feel the upper radiator hose, when the vehicle is up to temp. if cool , thermostat is back from that hose,

Look for air bleeds, and read owners manual, some cars have coolant bleeds. Also, heater on high when filling coolant or risk bubbles...

My thought is that your fans may not be kicking in. They should cycle on and keep temp low enough. test them.

I have a 1994 Saab 900SE. It is running hot but there is no leakage of fluids and the fan is working. Does the radiator needs flushing or do I need a new thermostat?


The leak can be in form of steam /. mist from the freeze plugs on the engine block.

Coolant system should be flush every 2 years or 24,000 miles.

As a preventive measure,you should replace the $15 thermostat every 6 years and check the radiator/coolant cap condition.

Trying to find thermostat on a 2000 Saab 9-5 Aero turbo


Most thermostats are located at the engine end of the upper rad hose. Rarely some thermostats are at the engine end of the lower rad hose but unlikely. Certain VW's have that distinction.Let me know if this helps.Moe

Change thermostat


that is mostly labor cost. the thermostat is only 3-5 dollars at most and to change out the thermostat takes an hour at most with replacement and coolant top off.

Trying to replace thermostat


Reasonably certain that you have to remove the primary drive wheel, which at least on American Saabs is the front passenger-side wheel. The thermostat housing is hiding behind it. You should be able to see it from above, but it's inaccessible except through the wheel well.
Haynes makes an excellent manual with a complete step-by-step walk-through for replacing the thermostat, because I believe it's fairly extensive on this motor.
