Used blBlue Devil yesterday on my Saab 9-5 and right when my motor started hearing sounding better radiator hose busted and lot of the blue devil came out on my motor should I retorque my head down there now that I wasted some of that blue devil or should I just burped the system and and see what happens
The battery acts as if it is not holding a charge, but when checked it reads ok 12.4volts. Wondering if voltage regulator bad, or something draining battery when engine not running. While driving on the highway recently all the brake sensors lit up RED & the speedometer stop working for several minutes then came back on by itself.
While driving, there is kicking/shaking feeling coming from underneath the passenger side. It happens the most when going uphill or downhill.
Cabin inside temp is below 20 f temp sense reads 122
The serpentine belt spins but does not sound as if the engine is turning. I retimed the engine and replaced the starter and spark plugs with no luck
changed my battery radio showing radio code if i push the volume knob in and the band button in radio works but keeps changing speakers
Cold air is coming out vents, doesn't sound or feel like the fan is even on. Temperature display only works on passenger side. Have checked all fuses. Tried looking it up on utube but no luck.

I have a Saab 9-5 2011 that has a problem that my dealer seems to be unable to address. From time to time, when I depress the brake pedal and then release it, the pedal does not retract to its original position. This does not happen all the time, but when it does, I have to pull with my foot on the brake pedal in order to release the brakes. The dealer has changed the master cylinder and the brake fluid, but the problem continues to persist. I noticed that this problem is more likely to occur if I go backwards. I also noticed that if I park my car, turn off the engine, and pump the brakes, the problem disappears for a couple of days. Does anyone have any idea what else can my mechanic look at in order to address this issue? This is quite frustratingThank you for any helpful advice that anyone can offer.
How long have you had this problem? A couple of months.
Lowbeams and one break light not working and not the bulbs. I did notice the fuse was burnt. Put in another and within a couple of weeks that was burnt.
There is an oil leak that's saturating serpentine belt with oil and causing it to slip off. I had oil pan and timing cover gaskets replaced, but problem persists.
my check engine light is on when i had it check it gave the code of misfire in cylinder # 4 i do believe. Which i was told could most likely be the Mass Airflow. I'm not sure what is wrong i do know however that it is a automatic transmission and it runs rough.
I bought this car from an old man mechanic roughly age late 60s who l so much trust in him. He has never mentioned any problems regardless the car. I have spent almost $3500 on it excluding $1800, I bought it. Both exteriors and interiors are clean. I'm a single mother of 12&8 girls. I am very unhappy and stressful with my situation because its very hard to go around without a car. I had to wake early to drop off my children at school and to go to school as well. I took it to get the road worthy and I was told l need to change couple things which costed me almost $3500. I can't afford to buy another car. I DO REALLY NEED HELP.
While driving at highway speed, there was a fairly loud popping noise and the Saab engine stopped running. It will start, run extremely rough for about 15 seconds and then stall and not run. What would cause this to occur? Oil has been changed every 3,000 mile with Mobile 1
My 2001 Saab 9-5 Sedan (2.3L 4cyl Turbo 5M) recently took an uncommon road trip (80 miles). After making a quick pit stop, we restarted the car and the tailpipe began emitting a white smoke, which gradually thickened. About 5 minutes later, the smoke was incredibly dense and the car stopped accelerating. The engine wasn't overheating. We turned the car off and had it towed to a Ken Towery. The mechanic checked it out and quickly advised that the issue was likely onset by a broken part "catching" when the engine turned over and that we replace the motor. We then had the car towed back to our hometown...

Since then, I've tried to start it... the engine cranks, but it doesn't start. And, I've checked the motor oil... there doesn't appear to be any.

I had the car inspected on 8/18. Everything checked out OK, except for a loose oil cap (which they tightened). I had the oil changed on 6/16.

Any help diagnosing this issue would be greatly appreciated!
