Subject: 900 + 9000 roadside breakdowns - failure modes

I was looking through some old docs, and found the results of a survey I did on a couple of years ago on Saab failure modes. The idea was to work out which items were most likely to leave you stranded. I had loads of responses, and compiled the following lists based on the prevalence of failures. Top of the list = most failures. Might be of interest, or if anyone has anything to add. =================================== C900 Top radiator hose Clutch master cylinder Clutch slave cylinder Clutch hose Alternator Battery Belts Fuel pump Water pump Transmission Thermostat Radiator fan motor Hall sensor Exhaust Head gasket Ignition Lower control arms Lower timing gear Valve stem Oil pump =================================== =================================== 9000 Serpentine belt Clutch master Clutch slave Clutch hose AMM Alternator Battery Crankshaft pulley Idler pulley Transmission Ignition switch Ignition amplifier Distributor Oil pressure sensor Water pump Differential bearing TCS CV joint Con rod =================================== -- Grunff
