    Master Cylinder?

    The last couple days I noticed my brakes are softer than normal. The brake pedal is now going down below the gas pedal but doesn't feel like when I've had air in the brakes from repairs in the past. The fluid was low but I didn't see any obvious major leaks but did see a tiny bit of old dry...

    P0116 Coolant Temp Sensor

    I have been having some random hard start issues and have codes P0158 O2 sensor bank 2 sensor 2 which I have had coming back for a long time, even after replacing the sensors, and P0116 coolant temp sensor. I can't find much here on the P0116 code for the coolant temp sensor but I have a spare...

    Removing Shattered Window

    I bought a car that needs some work and one of the side windows is shattered. I'm hoping to get it out in one piece. It made a 40 mile tow but it's close to breaking in. I have some vinyl wrap (or maybe just duct tape) I was thinking about trying to put on both sides before pulling the door...

    Panhard Bolt Stuck in Sleeve

    I have one panhard bolt that has fused itself to the inner sleeve of the bushing that I fought for too long last night. I've tried about everything I can think of to wedge the sleeve or hit the bolt out from the other side. I'm planning on picking up some good sawzall blades after work but...

    NOS OME Nitrocharger - Rear Pair DI RRC D90

    I picked up some new old stock OME shocks and I didn't realize I was buying pairs so I have an extra set. The part number is N27. I put the other pair on last night and they work great. $120 shipped for the pair. They had been sitting on the shelf in a Land Cruiser shop.

    Driver's Side Taillight Fuse Keeps Blowing DI

    The driver's side taillight fuse (#2 I think) keeps blowing. I've checked the bulb holders and they looked good. Is there a common spot that causes this fuse to blow?

    DI Spare Tire Lug Nut for Alloy Spare

    I need a lug nut for the spare tire on a DI, the one with the little bubble on the cap for the alloy spare. I'd use a regular one but I'm sure I've read on here that they won't work, at least for a DII so I assume it's the same for a DI.

    Okay to Drive w/o Catback

    I lost my exhaust on the interstate tonight. It broke off at the y-pipe. The hangar the must have broke when I changed the engine. Thankfully a guy waved me over before it caused big trouble. He was behind me and I heard the sound change but thought it was his truck. Anyway, other than...

    Stuck Lug on Spare

    My spare hasn't been off in probably 10-12 years and I went to pull it off to put on a new rear wiper arm and one of the lugs won't budge. I drilled a hole in the cap and have been spraying PB Blaster in it but it hasn't helped. I broke a 1/2" breaker bar. Any suggestions or tips?

    Cam shaft break in

    I pulled up an old thread of mine and I thought this info deserved to be in the tech section. Good info from PhD_Polymath (thanks for sharing!) 1.) New cams require new lifters (at least). New pushrods would also be nice, but I haven't seen huge problems with reusing pushrods, as long as they...

    New Cam with Head Gasket Change?

    I'm getting ready for my first head gasket change @172k. I have low power and cylinders #1 and #3 only have 80 psi compression. I have the kit and heads ready to go but have been reading and wondering if it is a mistake not to put in a new cam while everything is apart. Do the cams really wear...

    Courtesy Light Wire

    This weekend I noticed the dome light wasn't coming on all the time when I opened the driver's door and it also keeps it from beeping if the lights are left on. I pulled courtesy light switch and the wire pulled out of the connector and went into the fender. I've been fishing in there a on and...

    Radiator Flush Question - filled car with creek water

    I'm posting in the general section since I'm referring to my Saab 9-5. I split a heater hose in the middle of nowhere this evening and ended up putting creek water (~6 gal through) in my car to get home. Is there anything other than a normal water flush that I should do?

    Home Security System Recommendations

    A couple nights ago I awoke to my son trying to go outside to play at 4:45 am. This combined with sleep walking scares the hell out of me. The only thing that woke me up was the bell the dog rings to go outside. As such, I am looking for an alarm system to keep the kids inside. Does anyone...

    Sunroof ECU & Low Voltage Question

    This morning when I went to start my car it barely turned over and then once it started the front sunroof opened and wouldn't shut for a few minutes. I read some old posts about the same problem and it was the sunroof ECU. I know some of the threads said it was caused by a moisture or heat...

    DI Immobilizer Engaged - What Now?

    I tried searching but didn't turn up much on this subject for a DI. My wife tried to use the spare key to get into the DI this afternoon and set the alarm off. She said it went off three times before she got in and the alarm off and now it won't turn over. It doesn't do anything when turning...

    My AutoCAD got upgraded to Civil 3D 2013 this morning and I went to import a Google Earth image this afternoon and the import Google Earth options tabs have been deleted. Next I tried to import the image with the geographiclocation command. After entering the command I get "Import Current...

    Saab Parts Source

    Do any of you Saab guys have a good source(s) for used and/or new parts? I picked up a 2004 9-5 Aero for my DD and I need to get a rear air vent. Any recommendations for a good forum would be appreciated as well. Thanks
