Subject: 9000CD Heating Issue

Greetings Saab Owner I've got a late 92 9000CD (2.3 non-turbo) with 65000K on the clock. Was a 'hand-me-down' car. I use my Saab mostly on the weekends, usually I bus to work. My boss started his sabbatical earlier this month. With him on away on holiday, his park was available for use. I've been driving to work this month. I notice this morning (stopped at work premise) that the engine temperature was a bit 'high'. The needle was at the high end of the scale. Not red-lining yet but close. Its about at the 1/4 mark of the temperature scale! When I turned the engine off the cooling fan kicked in. I was relieved. When I drove back just now the temperature scale was just like this morning. At one stage it was two millimetre away from the 'red zone'. BUT the cooling fan did NOT kick in at all. Luckily got back home without hitting the 'red zone' or 'blowing' the engine. Got back, turned the engine off & left the car to cool for about 10 minutes or so. Then popped open the hood. Checked on the coolant, which is within tolerance (was actually at mid-point) which was recommended. Then I checked the fuse for the cooling fans (which was located in the engine bay) - no blown fuse. I'm totally stumped. So I'm back here at the newsgroup seeking answers. I'll probably bring the car into the dealer tomorrow for a check. But if any of you guys have any idea what's going on, please provide a response. TIA. -- Benjamin Lau
