    Hi I have a 2001 93 and I am after a spare direct ignition cartridge as a backup as they appear to be the weakest link I have been searching through our local self service wreckers, cheap and with a warranty, without success. I have found a few red ones, mine is black. Question is what is the...

    Not sure where to post this but after owning 2 9000 Aeros I would like to carry a spare DI. Red. Does anyone want to sell one? BTW while you will read other reasons plugs other than NGK will damage the DI, mostly saying BOsch and Champion compatoble plugs are rubbish, although those...

    Quick one hoping for an quick answer/comment. My second 1995 90K miles Aero , just back from 1,000 faultless miles in France, refused to restart at the community Recycling cntre. I was igniminiuously pushed out. AA came and found no sparks, Low Voltage power and signals to the DI. So another DI...

    Hi Guys, Picked up a black DI cartridge for my 1998 9-5 a few days ago thinking that was what needed to be replaced, however that's not the problem! So, I've now got a spare one for sale. I paid £100 for it and it's from a 2.0T... looking to get as close to what I originally paid. I'm in...
  5. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Hi All, a quick question if you please. I was taking a look under the bonnet and was surpised to see that the di cartridge was really loose - all 4 of the torx (star) screws were so loose I could undo them with my fingers. Any reason for this - is it a common problem? regards Jim

  8. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    A number on the underside of the cartridge gives the code for a date of manufacture. Is it embossed on the casting or on the sticker? I know someone posted a thread some years ago but i can't find it. Can someone please point me in the right direction or give the code. Many thanks Roger
  9. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Hi there and Happy New Year to you all. It's been a while since I've been on the site as both cars have been fine up until now. I am pretty certain that the DI cartridge on my Carlsson is on it's way out and I have found a new black DI cartridge for a very reasonable price. My question is, can...

  11. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    I think my DI cartridge (been on my MY99 2.0 LPT since I got it 6 years ago) may be on the way out so gonna purchase a new one, the car has developed a bit of a hesitation when hot, I have changed the plugs (correct NGK 6R type) but not any better. The part number on mine is 9187980 but all the...
  12. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    My direct injection cartridge has gone on my 97 900 turbo. I think i can remember reading on here some time ago that trionic 7 black cartridges will work in trionic 5 cars is this the case? just want to check as its an expensive mistake if i am wrong! many thanks in advance.
  13. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Having posted an article earlier in the week regarding DI failure, I have now ordered a new cartridge and plugs, so will fit myself when they arrive. I was wondering however whether or not I will have to disconnect the negative earth from the battery (as stipulated in the Haynes manual) or is...
  14. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    :( Having broke down today due to what the recovery mechanic said was a 'DI cartridge failure', I was wondering if it was a false economy to buy a second hand replacement or should I play safe and buy new? Secondly, will I need to purchase new spark plugs to go with it? As my car is now 'house...
  15. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    I've heard from a friend that the old DI cartridges for 9-5s are being phased out in favour of a "new" model. Apparently, it has a new part number and a a fittingly new price tag of virtually double what the part previously cost. Can anyone confirm this, and is it worth trying to get some carts...
  16. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    There have been a few posting about using this grease in the hope that it will prevent the DI failing and give better mpg etc., so I bought a tube. I was surprised to find that it was very "stiff" and difficult to get out of the tube (like bathroom silicon which had been on the shelf too long)...
  17. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    It hasn't been such a good day. I've been meaning to get around to checking whether my DI cartridge was replaced FOC as ought to have happened last year (before I owned the car, which I've only had since July). Today I found out: it gave up the ghost this afternoon while I was out, I had to get...
  18. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Afternoon folks. Last night my '98 9-3 2T just stopped on the way home from work. It felt like it had run out of fuel, although was registering a quarter tank (I later added a few litres to make sure it wasn't the gauge). I've checked the most likely fuses, the fuel pump and even switched the...
  19. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Evening All I have been having problems with my 92 2.3 non turbo for a few weeks. It jumps about after gear change and has started doing small mis-fires during normal driving. From what I read here it is most likely the DI Cartridge, and the guy who does my mechanical work thinks so as well. It...
