  6. Rear shocks on 9-5... a faster way to get the rusty nut off

    I just replaced the rear shocks on our 2005 Saab 9-5 Arc sedan. It’s a pretty easy job except for the (dreaded) rusty nut. I’m sure you know what I’m talking about if you’ve done this job.

    I first...

  10. Blower motor acting up. Bad blower motor regulator (a.k.a. speed controller)?

    I have a 2005 Saab 9-5 Arc sedan with 115K miles.

    The blower motor/fan for the heater/AC has been acting up over the past few months.

    Oh, and just a follow-up:

    I replaced the throttle body two and a half weeks ago, and the engine runs perfectly. :) So I'm guessing that was the culprit.

    A few ideas, ile2010:

    1. Is the throttle body in "limp home" mode, perchance? Have you checked it lately?

    Thanks Wulf.

    But according to your post back in 2011,



    So if it is a B235L engine, I should use these spark plugs?

    Thanks for the reply.


    I did some research and it would appear the throttle body is a ticking time bomb on this car, so I just went ahead and ordered a new one. I'll install it this weekend.
