Question about 2001 Saab 9-3

1 Answer

I have a 2001 Saab 9-3 2.2td and there is a very loud continuous ticking noise coming from it. \r\nI cannot seem to pinpoint where it is coming from. It doesn't affect the car's abilty to drive at all, in fact when the engine is started and on idle the ticking is slower than when the car s moving as the tickng gets faster. I have asked numerous mechanics about what it could be and nobody seems to know. Any ideas on what it is?

I had a similar noise on my 01 9-3 and several mechanics suggested it was a rod knock which would require replacing the engine. Luckily it turned out to be a cracked flywheel. The repair cost me $1100.

Loud ticking noise coming from motor


This is probably tappet noise from the top end of the engine. However you should have it looked at quickly as these engines had a severe problem with oil sludging, even when recommended services were done.
This caused all sorts of problems, so see if you can get it fixed before the engine develops something terminal.

remove the AC relay to shut the AC off all the time. Not sure why it wont start but you may havea security lockout. Fully charge the battery to proceed.

Loud ticking sound all of the time


Are you sure its not an exhaust leak ..? They can sometimes sound like a ticking noise and the noise will change with temperatures of engine.. ? also if you can borrow a stethicope from someone which is used in automotive repair alot (different than what your doctor uses) this will help you pinpoint the problem .. It sounds to me with out hearing it you have a loose rocker arm possably .. If this is the case this is a easy fix and very inexpensive. just figure which side its coming from take the valve cover off and tighten it till it stops ticking and then give it 1/4 turn. Holler if you need more Jerry

ThenI start my engine it sounds like diesel and no power


how is the oil level and pressure?, how many miles on engine? is this a loud knock or rather a clatter/ticking noise? knock is engine rod or crankshaft bearings, clatter loud ticking is valve follower noise. how long before it (the noise) goes away?
