  1. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi guys. My Tid was leaking about 0,1L of coolant for every 5000km. Even though it was not that problematic, but I had to get it fixed. During last maintenance, a few days ago, I've asked to check it and the problem was the thermostat, which was replaced. Somehow even before driving the car I...
  2. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    2005 Saab 9-3 1.9 TiD Vector Sport (6s manual) I have a similar problem to this. Prior to yesterday, for the previous day or two, I had noticed that my petrol gauge was not as it should be, as the gauge was sitting roughly 1/4 of a tank higher than it should be for the amount of fuel that was...
  3. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Ok - so I realise that this is an old thread that has been going for years but I only recently purchased an 85K 93 1.9Tid. Delighted with the car which has been remapped to 170 bhp. Only fault was that the temp gauge didn't appear to be operating correctly. Most of the time it sat at zero and...

    My 9-3 saloon has a strange habit. The alarm triggers on a fairly frequent basis. The car generally spends evenings, overnight and weekends parked on my driveway at home, two hours a day being driven, and around 9 hours a day, five days a week parked in the works car park. Now the alarm never...
  5. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    My LH indicator is flashing much faster than my right. All 3 bulbs are flashing, but (the same?) relay is flashing too fast, at twice the rate, on LHS as RHS (which also has all bulbs working). I thought this circuit used an electronic timer in the relay, so is independent of current loading...

    I'm unsure as to which of us is nuts, but... During frosty weather, the bloke opposite is in the habit of following this process... 1. Go out to his and wife's cars, parked on public road 2. Start both cars. 3. Lock cars 4. Go indoors (OPTIONALLY : stand in street having a shouted conversation...
  7. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Quick question, just to pick a few brains if that is OK. A few days ago, I was sitting waiting to drive out of Tesco's car park and the engine started to behave strangely. All by itself, it would briefly rev up to around 2,000 RPM and then immediately drop back to idle, rinse and repeat until...
  8. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Changed the coolant temperature sensor today, also drained and changed the coolant and cleaned the throttle body on a 3 litre petrol. All seemed well until it was started, the idle was at 2000 rpm, after a couple of minutes it eventually dropped to about 1200rpm. After letting the cooling fans...
  9. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Hi all. I'm hoping someone can help diagnose a random issue with my ACC. Car is 2001 9-3 SE HOT convertible. Basically the ACC works absolutely fine for about an hour, then any temperature set less than full will start blowing cold air out. (The full hot setting still produces hot air when...
  10. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Yesterday, I was driving my '95 9000 2.3 CSE through Oslo in heavy traffic, meaning i used one hour to get 5-6 kms... Anyhow, after about 45 minutes, the idle went crazy... jumped up and down randomly, varying from about 1500 to 2500 RPM ..... Made it kinda hard to drive slowly.... :crazy...
  11. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    I've just had the pads changed on my MY 00 9-5, and noticed that the front offside pad is only being applied to the outer half of the disc (the inner half is rusty which it wasn't before the pads were changed), given that the caliper design is fairly simple and not prone to sticking (as its a...
  12. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    I keep the headlight switch on my 93MY 9000CS turned on. However, sometimes (getting more frequent recently), when I start it up, the headlights stay off. Flicking between main beam and dipped makes everything normal. Is this likely to be the relays or the steering column stalk - or something...
  13. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Having changed all my brakes a few months back and bedded them in nicely, I decided to undertake some spirited driving and braking last night. I braked several times from 60 to a full stop, all seemed well with only a little brake fade towards the end. Thing is, when I stand on the brakes...
  14. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Can anyone help me with two bizarre problems I have? Just a little history first. I've got an 2001 Aero 4 speed Auto with a stage one ECU, sports filter, new DI, recent spark plugs (the correct grade), on super unleaded and its just been tested with Tech II and no faults were found. I have had...
  15. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Hi all At the weekend I noticed that my passenger side headlamp wouldn't work on position one (sidelights)but would work on position 2. I had no message from SID but went out a bought a new bulb anyway...same thing... no sidelight. Thinking I had bought a dud, I swopped the driver's side bulb...
  16. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Hi, When i press on the clutch to change gear the gear seems very keen to spring out. Could this be caused by a dodgy gearbox mounting? The car is not keen in going into reverse also. Thanks Mark
  17. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    My auto box has developed a slightly odd occasional habit. When moving away from rest in 1st then car starts to move away normally and then there is a solid clunk and the car carries on accelerating as normal. It almost feels like a gear change but the 1-2 change doesn't happen that low down...
