It works every time on my 91 900 Non-turbo, 96 > 900 as well as other cars I have/had. I should have been more explicit. My criteria for bringing the engine temperature down is the electric fan NOT running after I turn the engine off. If I run the air conditioner on my '86 ( BobR's 900 is an '86, not a '91 or '96) the electric engine fan does not run when I turn the engine off. If I run the heater, I am hot and miserable and the electric engine fan still runs after I turn the engine off. I should have said the heater trick does not work on 1986 Saab 900s. Can anyone explain the difference between the cooling system between the '86 and '91 900s? > > -- > Remove "NOSPAM" from address for direct e-mail > > ####### > # #### # # # # > # # # ## # # # > # # # # # # # > # # # # # # # > # # # # ## # > # #### # # #
