Could be an idler puller for your serpentine belt your car has a timing chain unless it is a V6. use a long screwdriver 2ft as a stethascope to hear what is making noise. you must put tip of screwdriver on attachment bolt head of the pulley with engine running. dont get into the belt!

Small steady water leak from the left rear side of the 1600CC engine, and this was after a new 'Head' was installed because of a broken 'timing belt'. Car is a 2000 Daewoo Lanos Coupe. All the hoses...

Might possibly be a leaking heater core or a freeze plug on the side of the engine. A small leak might be patched up with some radiator sealer but I would show the leak to the mechanic who repaired the cylinder head first. Hopefully he missed something minor and solve your problem with ease.

2006 93 has it got a timing belt or a chain

It's a belt:
Location SAAB 9-7x timing belt is located under timing belt cover. This cover is at the front of the engine and is behind the accessory drive belts that drive the power steering pump, alternator and a/c compressor.

For the L6-256ci 4.2L F/I Vin S the part number should be 6K905AP
For the V8-325ci 5.3L F/I Vin M the part number should be 4K365AP

When should the timing belt be changed on a saab vector 1.9 Tid

Standard Answer for Timing Belts/Chains: 100,000 to 120,000 miles is when the Timing Belts/Chains start malfunctioning or failing. Some people want to go ahead and change them before malfunctions/failures happen.
I just replaced mine on 2002 Dodge Grand Caravan which just turned 100K. Most Timing Belt/Chain failures will cause more costly engine damage when these fail, including a need to replace/rebuild an entire engine.

Let me know if this helped, or if you have additional information or questions. Feel Free to contact me at!

I have 2001 saab 95 2000. with 95000 miles. the engine seems quite noisy.

If I4 probably the timing chain and or the top end of the engine is going. Need to have it looked at ASAP. If V6 also not good. Mechanic ASAP. Could be noisy accessory like water pump, alternator, etc. Have mechanic take the outside belt off and run the engine and see if noise is still there. If so, engine, if not, accessory.

Knocking/pinging sound when stepping on the gas for power.

you will distroy the engine if you continue to let this noise happen.
the timing must be retarded to get the ping out if its that bad.
most of the time if its just a little bit though filling the tank with super unleaded will take out the noise.
the distributer must be loosend and turned in the correct way to ****** the timing and the idle must be put back up to compensate.
the distributer is the ignition timing.
the other thing that could have happend is the timing may have jumped time on the timing belt itself.this is a complely different timing.
this timing is valve timing.
the distributer is ignition timing.
when the distributer is turned you are changing the ignition timing .
you say in your text and i quote .

The service tech only adjusted the distributor fas far as he could to lower the idle.

a tech should never be turning the distributer to lower the idle nor should this be explained in any way to the customer.

if a tech says he dosent understand something stop them rightaway and get your car out of there or get someone else to talk to .
10 times out of 10 if the tech dosnet get it the car wont get it either.
have a competent service tech test and conferm the timing belt or chain timing .

keep me posted

thank you
