    Does that mean that 1999 - 2001 9-5's use green coolant, and later models use orange? I am about to flush my 1999 9-5 (as part of radiator replacement) and I am not sure if I should keep using orange...

    It looks like it's the radiator. I replaced the clamp, but the leak is the same as before, so it must be the plastic side of the radiator.

    I am going to replace the radiator and the lower...

    Do you use some sort of lubrication when you put on a new hose? Something to...

    That’s a great tip! Thank you! I was thinking about replacing the clamp with a different kind (e.g. a screw-on clamp) because original ones are a pain to get off. Do you have any recommendations on...
  9. Radiator coolant leak (driver side, upper radiator hose area)

    Hello everyone!

    It's been a while since I posted due to not owning a Saab for a couple of years. Recently I saw one for sale, and my Saab bug came back to bite me :D

    It's a 1999 9-5 base with...

    9-3 Aero, thank you for your reply. I'm definitively going to perform an engine flush, I'm just not sure what to use yet. Engine flush is supposed to clean the valve lifters(tappets) if they are...

    Hey everyone,

    Thanks for your replies. Frank you were right. The owner of the car told me Linear, but it is 2.0t. And it's mine now! I couldn't resist. I washed it inside and out, and now it...

    Thank you Dave T. and 9-3 Aero! So 2006 9-3 Linear definitively has a timing chain. That's good to know because I trust chains more than I trust belts anyway. Now that you mention 9-3ss, I think...
