    Hi there, My dad and I are trying to fix my SAAB 1993 900i convertible. It has been stored in the garage for 9 months, and will now not start. It will crank but not turnover. I have read many forums on this and have checked the following: Fuel pump is working. Getting sparks from ignition...

  7. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    So, I've had a lovely 2003 9-5 for a couple of years now and it's been trouble free... until last week. Maybe one of you lovely people can give me a bit of advice. I've read through so many posts but something just doesn't add up... Last weekend i took a 25 minute drive on a hot afternoon and...
  8. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    I have this problem with my 1999 Saab 9-5 where it starts when it's completely cold, but as soon as it's warmed up, and I shut it off, it won't start again for days. Just cranks away, but never starts. So the starter seems to be working, and the ignition. I replaced the crankshaft position...
  9. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    '99 9-5, I've had it for about 9 months now. Been a great car, first thing I did was the sump drop, oil pressure switch that had a leak, etc. minor maintenance since then. About 5 months ago had an issue with misfiring and lean condition which turned out to be one of the o2's, replaced and...
  10. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Hey guys, I have a 1998 900s 2.3L that refuses to start. Last year I turned it off for a minute after it had been running fine for several days and when I went to start it, all it did was crank. Determined it wasn't getting spark; tested the coil and distributor both checked out fine...
  11. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Hi all. Convertible 93 LPT with just 60k miles on the clock, new top of the range plugs etc. last summer. Worked fine until a couple weeks ago when it got "very slightly" more difficult to start but nothing to write home about (longer cranking before it fired)....until this morning (was taking...

    Hi, I just bought a 1995 900 S, 5 speed, non-turbo 2.3l, distributor style ignition. Nice car, drove it for a few days, took it on a long trip yesterday. Today my wife took it to work, came home for lunch, and it wouldn't start. Just cranks and cranks... Where should I begin? I am new to the...
  13. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    1991 SAAB 9000s B234i N/A 119,302 mi I removed engine to replace the entire clutch and removed head to replace valve stem seals and head gasket and timing chains.

    Hello all - new member, first posting - Have enjoyed reading the archive posts of this forum. Re: 1999 Saab 93, 150k miles. Backed my Saab out of the garage the other night and 1 hr later as I went to move it back in, it failed to start. Engine will turn over, but not fire. 12 month old...
  15. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    My car almost always turns about 5 turns of the engine before it fires up. Once it fired up on the first turn. Is it normal for it to do this? I know that the car checks compression or something in each cylinder, but it seems strange for it to be so lazy starting. How do other cars behave? Just...
  16. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Aero playing up again. Cranks over but will not fire. DI cassette was new 12 months ago. Fuel pump not heard running. Swapped relay, jumped wire between relay and still could not measure voltage at fuse 14 - hence no voltage at fuel pump. Its a 96 with VSS. In the dark last night I tried...
