This is an known issue with this engine. The Oil pickup screen is clogged from using non full synthetic oil and / or not being perfect with oil changes. a sludge builds up and clogs the oil pump screen starving the engine from oil. If you continued driving it after the oil light came on you likely need a new engine. Otherwise you need to have the oil pan dropped and the screen cleaned and the engine checked out for damage.

Oil pressure gauge flickers all over then goes to zero shut engine light comes on oil has 1000 miles on it 5w30 control cold or warm may return to normal 60/70 then 0


Problem could be a bad oil pressure sensor or the oil pump is failing. A mechanical oil pressure gauge needs to be hooked up to verify actual oil pressure. Problem could also be a bad stepper motor in the instrument cluster that drives the gauge.

Cold start knock


not good. and no year car stated or mileage.
id bet you never check oil levels, and just drive it for 20k miles
with no weekly fluid checks.?
ever do the 60k mile tune up yet
or change oil at 5k?

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.

Oil warning light came on while driving home, then started flickering on / off for rest of journey 2mls. changed oil filter and oil used recomended Mobil 0 / 30. oil light went out on starting but would...


Oil light at idle is a sign of wear. If it only happens at low revs and this is an old car, I wouldn't fix it unless it got worse. If it's a newer car, get a new oil pump.

About 2 miles into your first trip of the day it will start tapping and it gets louder like all the lifters are sticking, and the oil light flickers, could the oil pump be going bad


Oh, yeah, with those noises and the oil light flickering, do not drive it anymore, you'll kill the engine. Get that oil pump replaced ASAP.

2001 Saab SE red engine light and oil can, possible throttle


first off your mechanic sounds like he's taking you for a ride! If the oil lights coming on you need to check your oil pressure. I wouldnt drive this car anymore till I knew for sure I was getting good oil pressure through out the motor. Find a different mechanic! Mechanics are some of the biggest lying thieves! Right up there with lawyers.
