  1. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi, what do you think? Is it worth buying a used catalytic converter? Mine probably failed - p0420 code - after 180000km. I got an offer for a used unit for about 200Eur. I am sceptical, who knows how close to failing that one is. I could try to ask for some guarantee but I doubt I will get it...
  2. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    I am removing my old downpipe and installing a aftermarket one and in the midst of removing my old downpipe, my catalytic converter is stuck between my drive shaft and another obstruction. This thing will not budge up or down, and I cant seem to locate anything that is causing it to be stuck. I...

  7. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    I have a 2004 saab 9-5 aero that has started to leak oil onto the catalytic converter. The car smokes while sitting still when running and smokes as soon as you turn it off. I am sure the smoke is coming from the converter being hot and oil dripping onto it, what i don"t know and can"t find is...

    Saab 9000 Catalytic Converter Heat Shield Fix Just finished this and thought I'd post it up as a reference for others. My main symptom was a rattle between 1000-1500rpm that sounded like bolts in a pan being shaken around. Closer inspection revealed it to be the heat shield on top of the cat...

  11. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    There may be a point in the future when we pack up and move back to the land of hobbits (NZ) and I am considering taking a car back with me (Saabs are quite rare and pricy over there). One of the benefits of NZ is that I understand Cats are not legally required and it is common for imported...

    I have a 96 Saab 9000 with 193000 miles on it. I'm currently in the process of driving it from New England to Colorado in the States. She's done fine in the high way driving, even on 12-hour days. However, in city driving, I've found white smoke coming from the area of the catalytic...
  16. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    I often read on Saabscene about cat failures especially after a DI cartridge has been replaced. Something about unburnt fuel getting in there and taking out the cat. I have recently bought a 2.3 litre 9-5 which needed a new DI cartridge and the seller was told by a former Saab mechanic that it...
  17. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    I have a 1999 9-3 2.0t with 99k miles, today after driving 30 miles and having the car turned off for 30 minutes, I went to start again and it spit and sputtered, after several attempts it turned over. It was misfiring at the beginning of my trip but seemed to smooth out. After 13 miles it got...
  18. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Do they exist for the 9-5 and do people usually go for them when fitting a replacement 'sports' exhaust system? How many CAT's does the 9-5 have, I know some cars have as many as 3!

  20. Classic Saab 900 (1979 - 1993)
    I'm in the states and I've had two mechanics quote me $700 and $800 for a new catalytic converter for my 1987 900 8-valve. Do I need to purchase a SAAB converter or can I go with a universal? I'm being quoted $200-225 for those --much better... Also, what about a used SAAB cat converter? Was...
