    Hi, I have a problem with my cars rev counter. I know someone else has posted further down but their problem is solved! I drove up to Edinburgh this week and stopped off on the way for a break. I returned and my rev counter started 1000 rpm higher. No problem I thought, I knew you could...

    On my trips to work I'm getting 50-55mpg average in the SID counter, but according to how much I put in the tank, it's more like 40-43mpg. For motorway driving the counter shows about 60mpg, but realistically it's more like 50mpg. I know I shouldn't take the SID reading for granted, but I would...

    Hello, another niggle with my car that I would like your opinion on! I took my tid for a blast up the motorway to try to regen the dpf which was successful. However on the way back my rev counter started to slowly "die". It started at 2000rpm (70mph 6th gear) and slowly faded down to 0rpm. I...

    Hi there, My 87 900i 8 valve has never had a working rev counter. Today it finally annoyed me to the point of buying a new instrument cluster. I fitted it and the problem was not resolved. Still just sat there at zero... I was wondering if anyone else has had a similar problem or if anybody...

    Tried to search this, but no luck. I have a '05 1.9TiD and just made a long journey of 300 miles. My rev counter is indicating 2000 revs on tick over, despite ticking over at the correct speed. The revs indicate a higher Reading up the range. Any ideas?
  10. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Here is a quick one ... (MY96, 9000CSE, 2.0LPT) I have noticed that my computerised assessment of average MPG resets itself and starts again every now and again - just did it over the weekend, previously did it back in around April time. Is there a built in reset interval for this, or is this a...

    Hi all, I read in this website how to adjust my oil quality back to 100% after having it serviced. The guys at the garage were totally stuck until we found the solution here, so thanks to all who contributed to this solution. The problem I have now though is, "The days to service" remains...

    Has anyone else had a problem with their rev counter, it is working ok as such but sits at 2500 revs whilst idle therefore adding 2000 revs to the actual engine speed. Even when the engine is switched off it is still sitting at 2000. Any ideas?

    I was driving my 2001 Y 2.2TiD (125Bhp) today and all of a sudden the rev counter and the temperature gauge failed and dropped to the ignition off position. This coincided with the CEL displaying. The car conitnued to run fine with no noticeable difference. Engine off and on does not cure the...

    Took the old girl for the first day of a week long commute of 120 miles a day. Performed faultlessly, cruised effortlessly past slower cars in 4th gear, gave a new 3 series driver a bit of a fright when he couldn't lose me Couple of little... niggles I guess you could call them. First one...

    On starting up the rev counter needle on my 1988 900T16 rises to a mm or 2 either side of vertical, 3500 or thereabouts; and there it stays no matter what the engine speed. Ignition off falls back to zero. Some head scratching by experienced mechanics. Any clues please?
  18. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Is it normal behaviour for the rev counter to shoot up when changing gear (ie when the clutch is depressed)? Its not something that I would normally notice but I'm on a keep petrol costs down week and was looking at the rev counter keeping it below 3k when I noticed that when changing gear at...
