Now the bad news. The first situation described below doesn't EXACTLY fit your description but is what happened to me with my 95 SAAB Turbo Convertible:
It has a MECHANICAL clutch linkage. If yours is similar, if you have someone push the clutch pedal while you look at the top of the engine, you will see where a cable attaches to an arm that comes out the driver side of the transaxel and moves the arm it is attached to as the pedal is pushed and released.
These mechanical cables are not adjustable...and stretch over time, resulting in incomplete disengagement of the clutch even when the pedal is fully depressed. So the car will move when it is in gear even with the pedal depressed...and shifting gears will often cause a grinding noise or be physically hard to do. Other tech boards will talk about either buying a new cable and putting double washers on it, or buying an aftermarket cable that is adjustable. I fixed mine (about 10,000 miles ago) by taking a 'fender washer', cutting a notch through it, bending it into a half circle, and dropping it over the clutch cable between the 'arm' and the 'ball end' of the cable...essentially shortening the length of the overall cable and bringing shifting action back into normal range.
The second possibility, that sounds more like what you described, is if your SAAB has a hydraulic linkage. (I think some years SAAB used a hydraulic clutch linkage, I have had other vehicles with this setup, but I have not worked on a SAAB hydraulic linkage so my comments are 'generic'.) When you have a hydraulic setup there are two hydraulic piston/cylinders involved...one (the 'master' cylinder) controlled by the clutch pedal, then hydraulic lines to the transmission bell housing, where a 2nd (the 'slave' cylinder) is moved by the hydraulic fluid and moves the clutch disk in and out.
The workings are essentially the same that brake lines use. If you are low on hydraulic fluid the slave cylinder will not be moved enough to fully release the clutch, causing the condition you describe. There must be a reservoir of hydraulic fluid...if it is low put more fluid in it. (One of my old cars shared the same hydraulic fluid as the brakes...hopefully that isn't the case, as I'd really rather lose a clutch than my brakes!) If putting fluid in takes care of the trouble, GREAT! ... But why was it low? It will tend to go down a bit as the clutch itself wears*...but more likely is there is either a leak somewhere that would have to be fixed...or you have a 'leaky cylinder', which in turn would have to be rebuilt or replaced. If it is a 'leaky' master cylinder if you "pump" the clutch a few times it might work fine for a few minutes and then the fluid would leak past the seals and it would start to have your gears engage again.
I suspect the latter description, of a leaky clutch cylinder, most closely matches your description and is probably the trouble. Again, I have not worked on a SAAB setup like this...so all I can do from here is wish you the best of luck with it.
what reading is considered to indicate a high blood pressure problem?
Low to no water pressure in the house, what is the problem?
I have no number on panel when icon checks oil pressure . please guide me what is problem
Well, first you start with a problem . . .
I installed a larger tank to solve the problem.
Inside pressure is warm and outside is cold. But any where outside my house there is no problem. Urine becomes normal and no problem
An oil leak problem probably is the sign of a problem in your oil pressure or it could simply be a slow leak. The problem can cost anywhere from $100.00 to $400.00 for an oil pressure problem.
No, rain has no effect on water pressure. - If you have a well and are getting low pressure, insert a question in 'plumbing' detailing the problem, pump type and pressure tank type, colour and pressure at lowest. Tell us as much as you can and we will tell you how to fix the problem.
I had the same problem with my 99 f-150. Turned out to be a sick-sensor problem. Replacment of the oil pressure sensor was the fix.
The pump will switch on frequently. This indicates lack of air in the pressure tank which is the most common problemThe pump will switch on frequently. This indicates lack of air in the pressure tank which is the most common problem
Yes, children can have low or high blood pressure.
yes it is
If it has no pressure your problem should be on the pump. The three things I'd recommend you to check are: Packings, Unloader and Valve Kit.
Low or no oil pressure. Can be low of oil, a failed oil pump, or other problem.
Fix the oil pressure problem and see what that does for you.
Replace the clutch pressure switch in your Honda.
If you are on a well it means you have a problem in the pressure tank. On city water means pressure in general is down, or your PRV is failing.
1. verify that the oil pressure is actually dropping using a calibrated oil pressure gauge. 2. most likely scenario, the oil pressure is not really dropping, the oil pressure sending unit on your vehicle is bad...common Chevy v8 problem
