  1. Saab 95 & 96 Two stroke and V4 (1949 - 1980)

    9-3ss 4 way active SQ build Hi, haven't been on here in ages! As there's a dedicated audio sub-forum I thought I'd post mine here and it might help a few guys out who have the 9-3ss with dreaded fibre optic system and want to upgrade more than just speakers for a single din head unit and better...
  4. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hi Guys, I was wondering if you could help me out a little. My saab has developed a pressure problem in the coolant system. The "low coolant fluid" sign comes up on the sid screen. I go to put fluid in and there is a large pressure release when I release the filler cap. I have taken the car...
  5. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Noticed last night when changing oil and cleaning egr that in the inlet side of the turbo their is a large build up of oil on the out site all round the area, from where the air inlet connects and more on top of the pip that comes of the turbo to the intercooler? Would it most likely be a split...

    <div align="center"> Beijing Auto, the Chinese automaker that has offered to invest in the Koenigsegg-led purchase of Saab from General Motors, has confirmed that in return it will build the current (or previous) generation Saab 9-5 in China. In exchange for its involvement in supporting the...

    Several news agencies are reporting a double-pronged story: that GM has buyers lined up for HUMMER, and that Saab are here to stay and a future Saab may be built in North America. That’s where it gets fuzzy. Reuters reports it as follows: <blockquote>Wagoner said GM was committed to its...

  11. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Thanks to everyone who post answers on the forums. I have solved a number of my issues without ever having to post. Now I am on to a problem that I am hoping someone can help me narrow down. My 1995 9000 Aero has an issue with full throttle. The car idles smooth and runs fine at moderate...

    I called in to my local Saab independant today (still having AMM problems) and there in the parking lot was a 1989 Saab 900 5-door. Steve asked me if I wanted it, or if I knew anyone else who might want it. The car has a stuffed gearbox. I’m not sure exactly what the problem is, but it’s not...

    I love the idea of grassroots motorsport, though I’m not sure if I could ever be competitor. Let’s race it: I don’t have much of a “track record”. This 99 is being built up for rallying and there’s a really good build page happening here. It’s a blog of sorts and there’s various article and...

    Robert Farago will most likely continue his GM Deathwatch right up until he’s on his own deathbed. One thing I’ve learned about people who either are, or who believe they are, in high places is that they rarely admit that they were wrong. It’d make them look somewhat silly and in an industry...
  15. Saabscene: Performance
    Hey there, I'm from Wiseco Piston (Cleveland, Ohio). I'm putting together a list of engines we may want to produce pistons for in mid 2008. I've done about two days worth of research on the 2.0 and the 2.3 turbo (b234 type) engines and it seems to me one part number could satisfy the needs of...

    With all of the recent debate here at TS about V8 engines in Saabs (cars, that is), I thought that I would open the comments about engines in general, and what you see as the ‘right’ place to spend the Saab power plant development resources in the near future. Keep in mind that the new 9-5 and...
  17. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Six months ago I bought a Saab 9-3. I bought it because I liked the look of it and thought it would be a well built car that would last me a while. So I traded my Vectra and drove away in a six month old 9-3. I still love the look of the 9-3 but as for it lasting a while, I am now starting to...
  18. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    I seem to have a problem with my cooling system. I topped up my water on friday, drove 400 miles over the weekend and on sunday the level had dropped almost to the sensor. It did the same last weekend too after a 500 mile drive, giving the fluid level low message. Worse of all I checked it again...
  19. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi Saab-world, Just getting used to the new dash after a couple of months in my new Aero 2.0T and I am wondering on other peoples feedback on the new dashboard, particularly the build quality of it? I love the layout and dials but I have some problems with the quality of plastics. The airvents...
  20. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    I've listened to the build quality gripes of many forum users and now I've got a gripe myself. Driving along on Saturday the top of the gear lever came off in my hand. It's the plastic part that has the gear selectors on it. I was dumb founded, I stopped the car and had a look. The plastic...
