    Got a '99 base wagon with ACC. Recently, I noticed an occasional noise coming from the fan. Noise is faster like a vibration when the fan is on high and much slower vibration when fan is on low....

    Haven't tackled that one either. My '99 doesn't have the oil trap set-up but is one of the things I was gonna hit this spring.

    Haven't had any experience with it but I've read that another infamous leak spot is where the head gasket (maybe valve cover gasket?) meets the timing chain (belt?) cover.

    I understand that. Maybe if the car was worth more than it is today. As it is, if the car was fully functional, it has a resale value of maybe $1200 US. It's not much of a high risk of theft. I...

    Reviving an old thread. When I bought my wagon, it only came with 1 key and 1 fob. The fob only works within about 2 to 3 feet of the doors. I googled how to extend the range and saw some mods for...

    I agree. Keep it simple. However, some of those FM transmitters are junk. I'm sure the technology on them has improved but I bought one a while back that was an aux port/lighter socket adapter to...

    In another car of mine, I had found a walk through on installing an aux port in line with the xm radio. The aux port had 5 pins on the back and I found it at radio shack when they were still around....

    I spoke with a local car stereo guy and he told me to look instead into a 12 volt noise filter and install it in line with the power supply for the lighter socket. I did find a used one for $10 and...

    Could be year specific but I've found a few that might work. Search "caliper bracket". Looks similar but it can vary by year maybe.

    Heres a quick question. Hopefully someone can answer for me. My 99 wagon has the separate key fob. I have seen some keys where the transponder and buttons are integrated into the "head" (?) of the...

    The metal part at the end of the hose from partsforsaabs.com replaces the white plastic part in your 3rd picture. I could be wrong but that looks like it is the pcv valve itself which is what is...

    How does it "not work"? If it resets to 12:00 every time you start your car, then you have a bad fuse. Is the display "missing lines/pixels"? Then you need to replace the ribbon cable. Other issues...

    On my 99 9-5 wagon, I originally had an issue where the control knob on the stereo would work for power and balance, but the volume function only worked very rarely. Luckily the steering wheel...

    I happened to have a scrap that was roughly 1 inch by 3/4 inch and about 2 or 3 feet long. But anything will work. The noise vibration will travel along whatever you use. Long screwdriver, scrap of...

    I was able to get it out easily enough by jacking up the engine (block of wood between oil pan and Jack) and just keep lifting a little at a time until you have room to slide it out. I had found a...

    I was going to say that unless things changed recently, a mixture of coolant and oil wouldn't just result in a few bubbles. The oil would end up looking milky or tan in color if the head gasket blew.

    Don't you have to get new tags and registration when you buy the car anyway? How long ago did you buy the car? If recent, then why are you responsible for the former owners "fake tags"? If you bought...
