2001 9-3 with engine knocking problem. Used engine?
Posted by Tras Berg [Email] (more from Tras Berg) on Wed, 9 Feb 2011 14:55:37
Hello Bay Area Saab enthusiasts. I just bought a very clean 2001 9-3 with 127K mi. The main problem is it makes a loud clacking that increases with engine speed. My mechanic diagnosed it as rod knock, which the best solution seems to be replacing it with a good used engine. Does anyone have any suggestions about the best and cheapest place to find one?
