Question about Saab 900

1 Answer

I am a single woman that was definitely taken advantage of and sold a Saab 900 SE that was a lemon and every month something has fallen off of it or stopped working. Unfortunately I did not have the money to fight it and until yesterday the engine worked.I was coming home when the radiator hose blew without warning (no light) and after I repaired the hose,refilled with antifreeze, it would not start.I cleaned off the wires that were coated with antifreeze and sprayed wire dryer. Waited for a while and then since the battery is pretty new, I got a jump start from a truck to no avail except door locks were jumping up & down. The one thing that worries me is that black smoke was coming from the muffler just before I turned it off.No smoke from engine. Any ideas ? Carolyn

Hi Carolyn

It sounds bad I have to be honest, you most likely blew the head gasket when the rad leaked, did the car overheat at all? did the smoke have a sweet smell to it or was it think smoke like oil etc please clarify

Regards

Dan

If the noise is just a spinning sound and not a grinding, than you're starter solinoid is probably bad.
You're best bet is to replace the starter. Hope this helps.

just had to replace the fuel pump on my 1999 Saab 9-3 with 130 K after being frustrated with stalling over the past 6 months. Earlier attempts to fix the problem were to replace the crank sensor and purge valve but that was just a waste of $600.
It's always something with this car unfortunatley!

WHITE SMOKE COMING IN VENTS INSIDE CAR. SMELLS LIKE SOMETHING ELECTRICAL BURNING. 1996 SAAB 900 SE. ROOF LEAKS WHEN RAINS INFRONT OF LATCH RELEASE COMES DOWN TOP WINDOWS, BASICALLY FRONT PART OF THE CAR.


sounds like your heater core has a leak in it. take your sunroof off and get some rubber revitalizer at a glass shop. Try cleaning it and using the rubber rejuvenator on it.

I need an engine diagram for a 1995 saab 900 se V6


A SAAB dealer should be able to print one out for you. BTW that engine is practically identical to the V6 used in a caddy Catera, and Saturn Ion. Those diagrams would be the same, so you might want to search that also.
