Sounds like your heater hose connections
or the main hose....lots of new cars have radiator hoses with up to 7 attachments off of them.

I have a 54 saab 9-5 that has lost pressure on the brake pedal, fluid level keeps dropping to very low and there is a whoosh sound from around the servo, does anyone have any idea as to the problem.

If you have checked round the rest of the vehicle for brake fluid leaks and you are unable to pinpoint a leak. Eg calipers, brake flexible hoses, brake pipes. The next step would be to check the brake master cylinder by removing from the servo to check the rear seals.

Where is the water pump located on a 2003 9 3 four cylinder 5mm turbo saab and are they hard to change plus theres something called a by pass heater valve or something on it right down below the water jug...

All water pumps are located in the front part of the engine ( and share the belt with alternator or even drive belt )so it is preaty easy to identify.Most pumps are tricky to change but with carefull and some tips u made it.Hint :use a small mirror to inspect area.Look for the screws numbers /compare to a new one.Uninstalling make note of the position of each screw as they may be different in dimension (usually in lenght).Must see how u can realease the tension in the belt,usually by loosing the alternator.Installing take care of the gasket and contact area (clean)Some times u may have to use hi-temp res silicone (not recomendet).There are pumps that use a sealent ring or rubber cord,must be well placed.Do not bypass the thermostat,it is a temp fix,usually ,a colder running motor will ware faster.Track the leak by visual inspection and replace the tubes or clamps.Tip:must know the water refilling routine,as many cars need to bleed the highest point in the system.,Before driving,let the car run,heat ,wait for the water to stabilise,ceck level,wait for the fun to come on.DO NOT refill with could water if the motor is heated.U may risk adding water to the level by adding smal quantities and only with the engine running.Cheers.

2002 park avenue leaking water from tensioner replacement part?

I assume that you are talking about the black plastic tube that runs from the lower intake to the tensioner. There is another black plastic tube that goes out the bottom of the tensioner too. These have little O rings towards the ends. The plastic breaks at that point and when you remove the plastic tube you have to try to fish the end out. Both of these tubes come in a little container. I think that they are like 5 bux at oreillys. If you let them know what you are looking for, they usually have it out on the shelf.

Pontiac Bonneville with water leaking into trunk

same problem happened to my 2005 bonneville. inside the trunk and behind the carpet covering the wheel wells there are two water drain tubes. these tubes run down the inside of the "c" pillar and drain the water from the sunroof. they make a 90 degree bend at the bottom back of the wheel well(inside the trunk) and fit inside a round rubber tube/grommet at both of the rear wheel wells that lets the water drain outside.either the plastic 90 degree tube has come out of the rubber tube/grommet or the drain tube could be plugged up with debris. also make sure the two round rubber tube/grommets are installed correctly and seal the hole going through the trunk to the outside of each wheel well. this is of course only for those bonnevilles that have a factory sun/moon roof.

My 99 saab 9-3 led screen is not readable anymore where can igo to have this repaired. also my led screen keepssaying that i need to tighten my gas cap, i bought a new cap, but the problem didn't go away,...

As for the LED screen, there is a way to fix this. The problem is the ribbon that connects the screen to the main board. It's glued on. After time the plastic in the ribbon shrinks causing it to ripple up, losing contact in spots.

open the cup holder, and reach in underneath and pull on the LED unit. You can pull it out by hand at this point. Unplug it.

take a torx bit and remove the black plastic cover around the unit.

locate the white ribbon and carefully press down at each connection point with a bic ballpoint pen.

then take some adhesive weather stripping (3/8" wide) and build up 3 layers of this ontop of the ribbon.

When you renstall the black cover, you will have to squeeze the stripping the down and work the cover over it. It should be a tight fit.

The stripping will expand against the black cover and keep the ribbon pressed against the board.

Use the black stuff that squeezes and slowly 'puffs' back up.

As for the fuel cap, you have a leak somewhere in the venting system. Try looking at the hoses attached to the charcoal canister inder the hood. All the fumes from the system vent thru that, and the pressure is also sensed from that canister.

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!
