Easy solution is a blocked engine breather, though I've not come across this for over 20 years now. Most likely is the head gasket has failed. Is your radiator water level dropping regularly? If so, it is another good indicator if you can find no other leak.

SOURCE: how do I replace my 2004 Saab 9 3 linear's water pump.

Re : the computer , they better cover it under warranty or they ****.
Re : the water pump , you have a leak and they say it is the water pump , I have no reason to doubt that they have honestly checked out the problem and determined that a new water pump is the only solution but , damn $ 1000 is pretty steep. I would look around for another mechanic for a second opinion and a quote. Avoid dealerships. Not sure what engine you have but i just looked in my saab with a 2.3 and hope I never have to do mine. I am pretty good with a wrench but I know there would be lots of swearing involved.

Where do you add oil after replacing AC evaporator for Saab 2001 9.3?


there most likely is no need to replace the oil as oil travels with the gas
it is normally put in through the compressor but the amount is critical as excessive oil will block the TX valve
now that you have replaced the evaporator, take it to an auto ac specialist shop , have the system evacuated right down , any oil required to be added and the correct amount of gas to be installed

A better question: how long will synthetic engine oil protect the engine? I don't put a lot of mile on the Saab 9-3, 1999.


You need to change the oil every year or 10.000 miles. The oil will be polluted with foreign material like water, sulpur etc.

2000 saab 93 is over heating, had small radiator leak used a sealer and leak still persistant at times now that it is warm. Car over heats then the oil light comes on. Have water in radiator now till I can...


Having water instead of fluid can cause an issue, the other issue is that you are getting air into your system from the leaking radiator that needs to be fixed. Also because of the radiator you are not getting the the correct amount of pressure in your system to properly have air flow throughout your vehicle.

My 2001 9.5 saab red oil light and warning light is on but i have oil in the car


If you have oil in your engine this usually means you are lacking oil pressure. Saabs were prone to producing sludge at the mesh filter which blocks the oil getting to the sump and circulating properly.

I have a Saab 9-3 TDi 2001. The engine warning


Hi
If your engine warning light has come on this is indicating there in a serious problem and the limp mode has been switched on to safe guard the engine. It could be a number things, but I'll give you some basic things to look at which may help you.
  1. Check all fluids are are the correct levels - engine oil, radiator water level in overflow tank usual beside the radiator.
  2. Also check transmission fluid level if it is an automatic, from the dipstick.
If all these are ok then check these areas:
  1. Air Filter and housing has no blockage.
  2. Fuel filter may need replacing or water separator is filled with water, loosen valve at the bottom of fuel filter and drain the excess water. Fuel should not come out just water if there is any.
If all these are ok then there is a problem regarding sensor faults, fuel pump timing, and further in depth diagnosis will be needed. Hope this is helpful, let me know how you get on.
