  1. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Have been running with Limited Performance on (was booked into Two Stroke to Turbo this week) but crawling up a hill experienced a loud bang and now terrible hiss. The air seems to be escaping at the front of the engine, near the EGR tubing/manifold. This has only just been replaced. Is this a...

    Saab History’s colleagues over at Automobile’s Deluxe, made a great comment last month when it came to Saab’s move to go more upmarket and seek a demographic akin to that of the luxury home electronics brand, Bang & Olufsen. It was suggested that upon learning about the upmarket strategy and...

    Hi Opened the door to my 9.3 ss 53 reg linear this morning, one leg in when there was a very loud bang from the near side. Now it was early, and i was just out of bed so not fully awake, but after a quick check to see if a brick had fallen from the sky onto my pride and joy, i decided i had...

    Took the 2000 9-3 Aero with the overhauled + rebuilt engine out for a test drive today. Accelerated up the hill and the G Force was astounding - i could feel the skin on my cheeks slipping of my skull :fawlty: :D ....... ............. AND then, bang, the power went and by...
  6. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Hey guys, I think my fuel pump just went on my 9-3. I was driving home - accelerating from a junction in 2nd gear I think, and all off a sudden there was a massive loss of power, and then an almighty bang/jolt and then the engine cut out (not suddenly might i add) and wouldnt restart. The...

    As the title suggests, my 9-3SS has let go of one of its springs. I have added my woes to the Broken Spring posts above. If anyone is interested I would really be grateful for any help. Cheers Matthew

    One of the pulley on my Gm 900 2.0i 1997 siezed and disintegrated. In the process it also shredded the auxilary drive belt. The wife was driving the car at the time.Bless her .luckily it was only about 1/4 mile from home. I was hoping you may be able to give me the diameter of the idler? As i...
  10. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Hi, I was driving along the highway yesterday and heard such a loud popping/banging sound in my car it made my ears ring. At first I thought it was a blow-out, then perhaps an air-bag, or finally a speaker blowing. It appears that none of these things are the culprit, the engine seems fine and...
  11. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Its nice to have an internet connection again, albeit only a 40kbps dial up connection. I've been away without one for so long and I have missed you chaps. This place has filled out a bit hasn't it!? Anyway, I was hoping to dip gently back into the forums, read up on a good few interesting...
  12. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Hopefully someone may be able to offer some insight into what the problem may be - car is a 1991 CS Turbo (2.3 FPT) manual. I was reversing down a narrow lane in order to get to a passing point when there was a huge 'bang' from the front of the car, the wheels locked up and we came to an abrupt...
  13. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Last night after work I had to reverse up a lane, I stuck my 9000 92 2.3 Turbo in reverse and put a bit to much power down, Bang Big puff of smoke and a smell of clutch (fried clutch actually)and the car was stuck in gear. I could depress the clutch and let it out and nothing. It would stall...
  14. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Hi guys, not been on here for a while - been busy with my kit car. My '95 9000 aero gearbox has gone bang, 5th has no power to it and 1 - 4 all rattle and clank even when costing in neutral. I'm having problems finding a secondhand gearbox and wondered if any of you guys have any ideas what i...
  15. Saabscene: Performance
    Twice yesterday! Started the car and heard a bang from the exhaust. The only time it’s happened before was when I started the car after a period of no driving for about a week. Unburnt fuel? Or something more serious (I’ve got a full tank of the Tesco’s 99 RON unleaded)
  16. Classic Saab 900 (1979 - 1993)
    Hi guys Looking for some advice please. My Father has had a nissan 4x4 thing pull out on him Fortunately driving the 900 so he is uninjured. Unfortunately it was a head on collision at 60mph so it looks like the 900's a write off . Now I think its a pretty special car -- F reg, less than...
  17. Classic Saab 900 (1979 - 1993)
    Well, the 1985's engine has let go.. No dramatic noises or clouds of billowing smoke, just a misfire, a damaged no.4 piston and a cylinder head that looks like it has seen many better days. Not economic (both in terms of finances or time)to rebuild, and the car is too good to send to the...
  18. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Well, got me new 9-3 Aero... swapped no questions asked for my other one. But I have the same problem as my last one!!!! Under braking and turning the wheel when stationary there is a loud ugly crunch from the front wheels. What the hell is this??? I mentioned when I took possession of my new...
