  1. Re: Truth check Saab wheels 9-3 2007 wagon

    Off course you can use any other wheels that fit!
    There are also plenty of aftermarket wheels!
    For the 07 9-3 they have to have the same PCD ie 5 x 110 and offset ET41 and centre bore 65.1mm...

    Re: boot wont unlock

    You will very likely have broken wires in the conduit that runs on the left side of the boot.
    It stresses and flexes when you open close the boot and wires are a bit short.

    Re: saab 93 yr2001 auto

    Well you need the fault codes to start troubleshooting........car probably in limp mode.

    As you have likely found out the full set of misfire codes is a symptom of a bad ECU.
    Are the coils genuine?
    The first two P0646 and P1682 indicate an aircon problem which is probably a seperate...

    You dont tell us which car/engine combo but its likely the turbine shaft is moving around a bit and you can hear it whining under load/boost.

  22. Re: temp gauge behaviour after thermostat replacement

    Opcom is useful but only for the Z19 engines I doubt if you can make those changes........you can code injectors and force regens and get all the engine read backs
