    The best way to get all the wiring diagrams is to download and install the WIS. I'm not aware of the WIS being available on this forum, but it is available gratis from another SAAB forum that has...

    When you say "the balloon rises on top of the oil filler" I'm assuming you mean you have positive crankcase pressure at idle.

    It is possible that the pipes inside the cam cover are blocked. When...

    For a data point -- When I put my engine back together after rebuilding, I examined the OEM original tensioner with a magnifying glass and didn't see any signs of significant wear after 150k miles. ...

    Pentosin CHF 11S -- not hard to find, I can buy it at my local NAPA in my tiny town of 1,000 people. Your local auto parts shop is not winning.

    If they can't get their act together, it's $20 from...

    Easy peasy! I pulled the harness you need off one of the rear lights in the parts car. The light assembly is still totally useful as a spare for me, since I live in the non-salting, not Arizona-hot...

    You answered your own question -- the problem is a vacuum leak. In the short term, try to find the hole in the booster line and wrap it with some electrical tape. Then order a new line and replace...

    Speaking with my "I get paid to fix cars" hat on -- I'd replace the spark plugs and clear the codes, then see what comes back -- there's a good chance you'll be in the clear. Saab is unique in using...

    I've a wagon, and yes, that's the wagon procedure. I would bet you can get the subs out from the trunk without doing any cutting.

    I replaced the one in my wagon, I've seen some hack jobs where...

    The vacuum pump needs to provide a maximum capacity similar to manifold vacuum in a non-boosted car, so generally speaking, 12-13 psi or 25-28 inches of mercury.

    The reason the line runs to the...

    If memory serves, the pipe to the brake booster is just held in the booster with a rubber grommet. Some careful/determined wiggling and prying will release it. For the connections with the red...

    Let me look at my parts car, I can probably snip off a pigtail and mail it to you.

    I think you've found your problem. Oil should not be coming out of that pipe. The oil separator is below the intake manifold. I'm guessing your complete crankcase vent system should be replaced.

    Perhaps check your oil separator and the associated vent lines? If there's a blockage it could be forcing oil into the PCV lines.

    Is the check engine light on? Getting a code scan is the fastest way to narrow down the source of the failure. Even a cheap generic OBDII scanner will get you some info yiu can use to avoid...

    Adding some info from my recent expedition into P1250 resolution.

    The ECU outputs 5v on two pins -- 69 and 46. These feed various sensors. Per the WIS, the two 5v feeds are combined in the TB,...

    That's an odd failure. The tensioner isn't subjected to any rotation. Possible the internals are assembled wrong?

    Despite the chart, I thought as of the 2001 model year the E engine was 185 HP. At least in the US. Perhaps other markets had different specifications?
