  1. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi everyone. I have a 2010 Saab 9-3 TTID Vector 180bhp and I just bought the car. I lifted up the car but can't seem to find a way to check the transmission oil level. It's different than the Z19dth engine code because there was a little window to check oil level that I can't find on the z19dtr...

    Been a while since we did the rounds of Kickstarter and Indiegogo, and after sifting through this afternoon we found three clever new auto accessories that are at the very least worth taking a closer look at. The first of the pack is the most practical, but as you work down the list they get a...

  5. Tyres, Wheels, and Brakes
    So, I a badly buckled wheel. The tyre and wheel people I have spoken to locally all agree that only Saab wheels should go on Saab cars. In one way that's good, because I don't want to fork out for a whole new set of alloys! Some alloy wheel repair people say they can fix the buckle , but my...

    Have had my 2003 2.2 Tid Vector for about two weeks now, and driving to work this morning (7 mile country lanes) after about 5 miles the engine check light came on and the car lost power. Any quick easy checks, common faults etc, I can have a look at before I have to go to the dealers...

    Alright chaps. My <font color="red"> 'Check Engine' </font> warning light has been coming on intermittently recently. I understand that this indicates that there is an ignition problem & that the car should run at a reduced performance. However, the car keeps on running as normal which has...

  11. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    My car has real economy problems and is oozing oil from everywhere. I have borrowed a compression tester to rule out engine wear before I spend any more money on it. What readings can I expect? The car has 150k miles but and serviced regularly by myself

  13. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    I have recently had a new throttle body fitted, and in diagnosing this failure the garage checked or tested loads of other bits to diagnose the TB. And for a few weeks it has been driving OK, apart from the recent episode of overheating for no reason! (I was running it with the ACC on ECON as a...
  14. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    I have a 96 - 9000 turbo griffin auto. The problem i have is that after having jump started it from a flat battery (left side lights on, Doh!) i now have the check engine warning up on the dash. If i turn the ignition on, check engine flashes 9 times, i've been told this means an ECU fault but...
  15. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Morning all Well my clutch has given up, that and my poor paper work skills means the car is now SORN. Gives me a chance and a bit of breathing space to get things sorted. I was hoping someone may be able to confirm that i am about to buy all the correct parts and recommend anything...
  16. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Last night on the M3 I was driving with the cruise control set and all was fine, then suddenly the cruise control turned off and a orange light showing an engine shape came on. I drove off the motorway at the junction that happened to be there and stopped, checked the manual which said this...
  17. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Hi Saablovers! Yesterday I drove home when the check engine light came on. I called the local saab specialist. He used the Tech2 and told me that the fault code is P0101. He told me that this fault code is in connection with air mass sensor or air mass problem. It may cause many different...
  18. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    I've had this a couple of times now on my 2001 TiD 9-3. The level has in fact be fine and because I'm paranoid I've ended up topping it up and over-filling it. It seems to be permanant now, even after clearing the warning it comes back the next time it checks everything. Are the sensors known...
