    Hi all, My 07 93 Tid has about 180kmiles on the clock. It has been using a bit of the oil the past year and I suspected the turbo for some time, oil around the intake pipes and pipes out of the turbo. It got progressively worse so I changed out the core of the turbo for a new powertec part...
  2. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    So went to swap the diesel filter on the 93 and whilst unplugging the water sensor from the loom, the brown wire snapped at the plug on the LOOM side :mad::mad::mad::mad: Wiring is hard quite a ways back, so is it possible to bypass the water sensor, say by shorting the wires?, can probably...

    Hi i am finding my sportwagon difficult to start especially if I have not driven it for a few days. It used to start on the button now it needs a second or third turnover to make it fire up.

  9. Saabscene: Performance
    I recently changed my springs from standard to Eibach Pro, which gave a nice 30mm drop, but the ride is very bouncy because I'm still using the standard shocks. Which uprated/sports shocks do people recommend when using lowered springs? I've seen two makes: - Bilstein B8 - Koni FSD

    Hi Just bought a 150 and have a few questions: 1. There is a very slight wurring noise on acceleration in low gears, I can only hear it with window open and only at low speeds - is this normal? 2. Where is the OBD Diagnostic plug?, as I am ordering a scanner from ebay. 3. Is there anyway I can...

    Dear all, Apologies for writing if this point has already been covered. My beloved 9-3 has just developed a fault. The car seems to stutter at low revs, (like a bad HT lead on a petrol).
