    Wondering if anyone can suggest a possible cause/fix for what I'm experiencing when accelerating hard with my 2004 9-3 2.0L Aero Convertible. As I hit the red on the boost gauge there is a knock (best way I can describe it is as if the traction control suddenly kicks in for a second) once or...

    Hi all, the 9-3 is at it again. really sluggish when accelerating...then bang on the motorway all aceleration disappears and limp home mode appears but not EML and no codes what so ever. reseting with obd or turning off and on takes this away and sometimes it comes back sometimes it stays gone...

    My DPF was completely blocked so I've had it deleted. I have also cleaned the EGR valve and checked the solenoid is working OK. Now, I get huge amounts of black smoke on acceleration although I have full power throughout the range. What would cause this ?? Turbo knackered ?

    9-3 1.9 TDI 120 Vector Sport 2004 60K I'm getting an occasional hesitation - like a little hiccup - during acceleration in the lower gears. Strangely it's only been happening since I had some work done - part of which was a new EGR valve and intercooler. Any ideas? Thanks!

    Hi all, I've got a 08 Turbo X Auto which has developed a problem whereby acceleration is lumpy. However this does not happen all the time: - The main lumpiness is between roughly 3-4.5k rpm, and only in gears 3-6. If you accelerate from standstill the car will accelerate smoothly up to the...

    Hi All, This is my first post on this forum, so please be gentle. I have recently bought a 9-3 1.8t. (85000 miles F.S.H) I decided it needed more power and so had it re-mapped. The car is running fine and pulling very well in every gear. However, the other day, I decided to open her up...

    My 2010 Aero with 50K is experiencing binding of the rear wheels upon initial acceleration. Car operates fine after initial binding. Will bind several times.
  13. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    I bought this car a few months ago, and I have noticed that very occasionally while accelerating from a standing start, when it hits about 1500-2000 revs it's as though it loses all power and I need to lift the gas pedal then re-depress it to resume accelerating. Has anyone else suffered this...

    Hi, New here. I'm about to buy a 2005 93 Sportwagon 1.9 TiD. I tested it today and the acceleration was very poor off the blocks until the turbo kicked in. Foot on the floor and it just eased away until about 200rpm. No stuttering or anything, just wallowy. Is that normal or does it herald an...

    Daughter was driving the highway for about two hours. When she exited the highway, she said that her foot had the accelerator all the way to the floor, and the car was barely moving. She said the turbo gauge was revving really high, but the engine RPms were hardly moving. She had to basically...

I've been lurking for a while now absorbing the wealth of information on here, however I haven't managed to find an answer to my problem....
