    Saab 9-5 Aero Boosting Problem not holding after 3 RPM's Hi, This week I upgraded my old 2005 9-3 2.0t to the 9-5 Aero. It was my second outing, didn't really notice the boost dropping, we had a snow storm here in Vail. Drove my new car really hard, then noticed that the "boost gauge"...
  2. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hey folks, hope someone can help diagnose my problem. Set out on a drive today, everything fine, lots of standing water though. had overtaken a couple of cars previously so i know the car was going fine. Aproached a corner, dropped a gear and then went to accelerate on the way out and next to no...
  3. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Hey all, Maybe there was a thread on this, but I couldn't find it. I have a '99 saab 9-3, 185 horse 2.0 turbo. Over the last while I've been having problems with getting it to boost properly. Boost is slow in coming, and it never really reaches full boost. It won't hit full boost until...
  4. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    I couldn't fine a match for this when searching, so here's the problem; Car is a '97, 2.3 LPt auto with 185k miles. When the engine starts to come under moderate load with, say, about half throttle or more there begins a loud "whooshing' sound. It sounds like a large volume of air escaping...
  5. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    So I thrashed the car the other day and it was fine but I did notice a slight stumble under load. After a steady bit of driving I realised I'd more or less lost boost. Then it went completely and the car was like a snail. I can hear the turbo spooling up and when warm it'll shreik under load but...
  6. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hi Guys My 9-5 aero auto is boosting more if in manual changing of the auto box, than leaving it in 4th(2000 model). If I squeeze the pedal to avoid kickdown it used to really boost up and the mid range was very powerful but recently it has started changing down(quite abruptly) instead. Any...
  7. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Hi all, Apologies if this question has been answered already. I have tried a search but can't quite find the answer i'm looking for. My issue is with my 2001 93 SE vert HOT. When the turbo is reaching maximum boost the brake warning light comes on briefly on the dash. It then goes out as the...

    I have been running my 900 turbo with Speedparts stage 1, JT downpipe, Forge dump valve for a number of years now and have just passed 153,000 miles today. I have noticed that recently max boost has droppped back a bit - base is still 0.5 bar but max used to hit 1 or 1.1 ish and now hits about...

  11. Classic Saab 900 (1979 - 1993)
    hello again, my 900 isnt boosting sometimes and when it does its not very much. only slightly going into the yellow zone of the gauge, the car feels very sluggish compared to what it used to be like, while driving it feels there are flat spots in the rev range, have anybody had this problem...
  12. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    I said the other day that apart from a slight miss at idle everything was ok, and the car was pulling fine right into boost.....well it was.....but eh....nope, not now! Was out today, and while "giving it some" in 2nd, 3rd, 4th, I was quite spluttery in boost, it was pulling but wasn't clean...
  13. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Hi all and a very good weekend to you all, I have started to strip the M95 CSE. 2L lpt, As you all know a lpt does not have the turbo gauge, and I have never got aroubd to fitting one on mine, this will change now very soon! I have just removed the dash from the FPT that I have and rigged it up...
  14. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Hi again, Another question whilst I am on. In my last SAAB a 9000 Aero the car suffered with a violent sort of loss of power folled by a jerk and wham when pressing hard on the throttle. I never found out what the problem was as I had to sell the car but now I have the same problem in my...

    I,m running 9000 cs 2.3 lpt 1997. When the engine is cold the turbo is now starting to lurch . Boosting then dying then picking up again. Nothing too heavy but pronounced enough to be noticable. When the car heats up it runs perfectly. Incidently i put a bottle of that stp fuel injector cleaner...

  17. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    hello all, quick question - can someone give me a quick bit of advice re my turbo? just in the last 48 hours it seems to sporadically refuse to build boost up past about halfway along the orange. It seems completely random when it will do it or not, so I don't think it's anything like a hose or...

  19. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Hi everybody, my first post here. I have a '95 9000 Aero 2.0. My problem is when I push it, in every gear. It seems like it misfires when the boost reaches the end of the yellow. When it starts misfiring, the boost needle begins to bounce and the car shudders. In other situations, the car runs...
