  1. Thanks, burnsside42 and all, for your thoughts...

    Thanks, burnsside42 and all, for your thoughts and input. I got both turbos are out. Not too much trouble. I used the pictorial guide from Thesaabguy (SAAB Turbocharger DIY | theSAABguy ). Main...
  2. Thanks, Burnsside42. I'll actually be taking the...

    Thanks, Burnsside42. I'll actually be taking the turbo off my '01 9-5 Aero, so its washers, hoses, pipes, etc., will hopefully be usable for the transfer. Thanks for the info!
  3. I checked the cobra pipe, and it didn't look bad....

    I checked the cobra pipe, and it didn't look bad. However, the hose clamp junction areas to the solid, black plastic throttle body hose we're quite oily. It certainly looks like the charged intake...
  4. 9-5 Turbo compatibility: '01 Aero in '02 Linear?

    The turbo in my '02 Linear is shot (blowing oil into exhaust and intercooler, etc.). I have a turbo from my '01 Aero. Does anyone know if this will work as an upgrade, and if so, would I need to...
  5. Not yet. I had read, form several sources, that...

    Not yet. I had read, form several sources, that putting some (up to a quart) tranny fluid in place of motor oil will help open clogged ports (lifters, etc.), and that it is a common thing for some...
  6. One quart.

    One quart.

    Just found this post ( http://saabworld.net/f9/white-smoke-pouring-out-exhaust-29286/ )and will check cobra and throttle-body intake, big-black hose for oil.

    Also should mention that I put some...

    Note: I believe this turbo has about 180k miles on it.

    The car sat all day Sunday. Started it at night to start heading home. No more howling sound, but ridiculously sluggish, still. Boost...
  9. Smooth, sluggish acceleration with hound dog noise following turbo gauge

    On my 2002 9-5 Linear, auto tranny. This just started yesterday, after driving 3 hours. Now I'm 2.5 hours from home and not sure what's at risk with this rising howl that follows the turbo. It's...
  10. Ok, folks. Looks like it's settled. Thanks for...

    Ok, folks. Looks like it's settled. Thanks for all the thought that went into your replies. Compression checks are not necessarily definitive tests for blown head gaskets. My 4 cylinders measured...
  11. Also, I was hoping that either the exhaust/fuel...

    Also, I was hoping that either the exhaust/fuel smell was coming from a leak in the turbo area, since it's water cooled, or from some other place that might be a pathway from intake fuel to coolant...
  12. Thanks, Jeffrey. That's what I feared. Since...

    Thanks, Jeffrey. That's what I feared. Since the compression seemed good across all 4 cylinders and others said a leak would show up as a drastic reduction in compression, I got my hopes up that...
  13. I changed the typo, "overcooked" to "overfilled"....

    I changed the typo, "overcooked" to "overfilled".

    More importantly, I let the engine warm up and let it idle for about 25 minutes. The occasional bubbling into the reservoir was present, but I...
  14. Thanks, finding41. I've done the headgasket on...

    Thanks, finding41. I've done the headgasket on my '01 Aero. You're right. It's not too bad. Life is always most demanding when time is short. When I filled the reservoir (not what I normally do),...
  15. Thanks, Mike Brennan. Will do. I will update...

    Thanks, Mike Brennan. Will do. I will update this post with progress.
  16. Mike Brennan, you reminded me that I forgot to...

    Mike Brennan, you reminded me that I forgot to mention that there is no sign of water/froth in the oil. Thanks for touching on that. Everyone's been saying that if the head gasket has failed, the...
  17. Thanks, Finding41. Great reply! You've given me...

    Thanks, Finding41. Great reply! You've given me hope. I'll check the bypass valve tomorrow and reply (I'm out of town until late tonight). I'm not sure how its failure would result in that smell...
  18. Exhaust in my coolant, but good compression?

    My 2002 9-5 Aero wagon has been losing (somehow) about 8 to 12 ounces of coolant every 100 miles, or 2 hours of driving. I noticed a hissing sound when removing the coolant reservoir cap and what...
  19. Ooooo... wish I'd seen Finding41's suggestions...

    Ooooo... wish I'd seen Finding41's suggestions about the bearings. T late for this go-'round. My '02 9-5 Aero wagon is back together. Can't say there's any performance difference. Almost all the...

    I'm doing PCV update #6. The intake screen for the oil pump was about 30% clogged on this '02 9-5 Aero wagon. Previous owner said she had the oil changed religiously with synthetic. I kept the oil...

    Ok. I managed to get the exhaust flange to clear the lower turbo stud by removing first the mid-section of the exhaust system, then the front part that attaches to the turbo. Without removing the...

    The problem is, on my '02 Aero automatic, the exhaust flange that mates to the turbo won't move left (toward driver's side) far enough to clear the lower turbo stud. The bend in the exhaust pipe...
