What is the proper oil for my 1999 Saab 9-3 turbo


#2

Look in your owner’s manual. It will have the information you are looking for. You do have your owner’s manual right?


#3

no i do not.


#4

Call a Saab dealer and ask them. I’d bet good money though that synthetic 5w-30 will be the answer.


#5

Often it is on the oil cap on top of the engine (aka where you pour the new oil in).


#6

You REALLY should have an owner’s manual for this car.

Look for an inexpensive used manual at http://wwwBooks4Cars.com

If it is a turbo, you will want synthetic oil. I don’t know what grade though. Probably a 5W-30 for that year, but don’t count on me being right.
