SOURCE: slite oil leak from rear valve cover gasket per dealer $650.00

Hello. Let me try to assist you the best I can, with the hope of achieving a FixYa rating from you for my assistance.

Changing the rear valve cover gasket on your vehicle would be not considered a "real" big job, but IS a time-consuming job.
In order to remove the rear cover, you first have to remove the intake plenum. If you do not remove the plenum, you can't get to the valve cover bolts that are under the plenum. After the plenum is off, the valve cover is easy to access. You will also need to replace the intake plenum gasket, if you do the job yourself.

I hope this information has satisfied your question.
Thanks for choosing FixYa for assistance!

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.

SOURCE: 2003 Saab 9-5 tail lights out. Replaced bulb no

Saabs are finicky here. Try replacing all your tail lights at once and use bulb grease to help insure a good connection between the bulb and the socket.

The air conditioner will not cool


if you are only getting 2-3 days out of a charge of refrigerant, it is likely you've got a pretty decent sized leak. Most likely the condenser, as I'm guessing that hasn't been replaced yet since it is probably the hardest part in the a/c system to access. it could also be bad o-ring seals at any juncture in the system. if it has been going in for 9 weeks and you still have a leak that bad, I would recommend specifically asking them if they are using a UV dye, and if they have used a refrigerant "sniffer" inside the weap holes where condensation runs out from the condenser... I had a similar problem in my pontiac a few summers ago, they found the leak in my condenser using their refrigerant "sniffer/detector" device by sticking it up in the weap holes, pretty expensive to repair.

on a side note, there is a stop leak that you can buy at almost any autoparts store, called "super seal". most garages will advise against it, but the guys at my local "big name" autoparts store, swear by it for the big leaks in expensive places.

I have air con leak on my galagy 2001 auto 2.3. how can i find it and repair it?


i have a galaxy myself and the only way i could suggest to find an air con leak is to take it to an air con specialist. they wil re gas the system and add a flourescent dye. after a few days, the dye will show exactly where the system is leakin. this is not something you can normallt do yourself as they use special light and glasses to highlight the dye.

i would avoid the big car stores (ATS, Halfords etc) that advertise air con checks, as they do not specialise and do not have the specialist knowledge or experience that a small air con specialist will have. i have also found that they are often far more expensive for this sort of specialist work.

if you look in the phone book, there will probably be a few small air conditioning specialists in your area, some may be mobile and do the job outside you home.

a/c systems can often just loose gas over the winter anyway if they are not used regularly and your system may just need regassing anyway, but the specialist will be able to check if this is the case.
hope this helps

I have a 2008 Saab 93 and the air con has stopped working. I have been told to check the condenser. Where do I find this piece of equipment please?


It's the small radiator situated just in front of the engine's radiator - it might be clogged up with dirt.

Saab 9-5 air conditioner is out


Totally depends what is wrong. If it simply a leak somewhere, it could cost under $200: find the leak, replace the hose or fitting, done. If the A/C compressor has gone bad, it could be around $1200: new compressor, accumulator, labor to install.

Good Luck!

Looking at buying a 1999 Saab 9-5 convertible but the top wont go down on it. If I need to replace the motor is this difficult to replace?


It is not an inexpensive problem to repair. Its probably low on fluid wich means it has a leak in one of the top rams or it could also be the drive gear in the pump motor which can be repaired if one is crafty. look in trunk, forward rail 2 holes one for light 1 for fluid level. Con you hear motor running?
