So as I go up hills the car God slow ,,oh and my air conditioning pipe shakes hard when turned on ...

And my battery won't stay when I try to start the car it just make a ticking sound...what could be the problem

at the same time i replaced the front o2 sensor because because it was throwing the code for it is throwing the code for a camshaft pasition sensor . Do you think i should put the cheap plugs back in .I know you list several things it could be for that code . but do you think it could be the plugs since thats what i changed first and made it run rough.

Upon starting the car we found both headlights, high & low beams not working. All fuses are ok, replaced both bulbs nothing. All other lights are working. ?????


does anyone know of where i can find step by step instructions with diagrams if possible to fix my gearbox i replaced the reverse shifter lever lock out part due to it was broke however now theres inner issues with parts and i don't want to take it apart with out instructions to put it back together. the car won't go into reverse at all now and is hard to shift into gears it is a manual transmission. the gear linkages has been adjusted gearbox oil is full as well

Have both parts

I bought Saab 9-5 ´00 2.3 turbo 230 hp, automatic, after a few day, and 300 kilometars car started to make a cracking noise from front side, somewhere in the midlle of an engine, maybe bellow, near turbo or transsmision.
You can only hear it when it is in park or neutral mode, or standin on a lights, and yesterday I heared it when I relased the throtle while driving, when turbo gaget shows that turbo is off it starts againe, and I push the throtle, turbo kicks in and sound stops..
The sound is very loud, especialy when I´m in parkin lot..
pleease, if someone have some solution, thanks.. :)

my car will not crank

Fluid poured out from the passenger side without
warning there was no leak or loss of fluid prior to the spontaneous rise in heat and fluid loss. When the car cools down it will start up but not hold fluid
