    9-3 aero 100k maintenance

    Whats up Saab World. My 2006 Saab 9-3 aero 6spd has recently cracked the 100,000 mile mark of its life. It still drives like a champ and is in near mint condition... besides an electrical problem, beyond the point of this thread, check out some of my other threads if interested in that...

    Any way I was just wondering if there is any scheduled maintenance at 100k miles such as water pump, oil pump, timing chain tension, etc...

    Thanks!

    100K Service consists of a good going over - oil change, rotate and any filters that may become due since last checked. Also BG products MOA and 44K are reccomended @ every service as they will BACK your car up with a warranty if used.

    Have your change your MT fluid, power steering, brake fluid, or coolant? These item degrade over time, as you may already know. Bad brake fluid killed the booster on my saab and rusted lines, several hundred in repairs. Coolant becomes acidic and corrodes water pump impellers, radiator, head gaskets, cylinder heads, thermostats, lots of stuff.
