    Hi, Saab 93 aero convertible 55 plate Is this a common fault? I am being quoted £470 to fix! My dash gauge for engine temp has gone off the scale but the engine is not overheating. I had the garage hook it up to the computer and they advised engine was fine and a dashboard problem. I'm...

    The hose clamp which holds the filling hose (rubber) to the plastic fuel tank is terribly corroded. Up to now I tried spraying anti rust, tried it with screw driver and other tools - in vain. :mad: :o I am afraid to approach with a saw due to the terrible connection rubber/plastic. Has...
  3. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    So I just put in a new AIC and started the car , and to my dismay the car started idling from 1500 to 3000 rpms up and down as if I was adding throttle. I noticed that the original unit had been installed with the arrow on the AIC facing down, Contrary to what I read online about installation...

    Hi all, changed my ARB links at the front this weekend, really easy job, car feels loads better now, however, noticed I have the obvious common problem of a snapped coil spring at the front :( - here is where it gets funky, I simply cannot seem to find the correct spring / springs to replace it...

    05 9-5 Aero 2.3 I have been having a boost problem, after disconnecting the W line, blew off problem hose and fixed, it was behind the TB. Car was running great, I felt the power, holding full boost until my radiator/heater core hose exploded, so I fixed it, now car isn't boosting right...
  6. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    I have a 1999 Saab 9-3 and just finished up rebuilding the motor, head and new turbo. All was well for the first 50 or so miles. I did a quick oil change to flush out the break in lube, but immediately after that I now get a cold start oil pump whine. It goes away after it's up to temp. I...

    It’s been to the chagrin of many Saab enthusiasts that there’s only been a handful of video racing games that included Saabs in the lineup. If this list of cars from Gran Turismo 5 is to be believed, then many a Saabisti will be heading out and purchasing a PS3 just for the sheer pleasure of...

    Hi. My o/s headlight wiper has just started going silly. Instead of being laid as it should it sometimes is up in the air or 180deg the opposite way! Any idea? Its still connected as its not loose. Cheers, Lee

    I was first introduced to this car when I prepared the entry about the NWSOC meeting earlier this month. This 9000 Aero actually belongs to the host of that meeting and she - yes, she - is a Saab modding freak!! <blockquote></blockquote> A regular at The Saab Link, Kaylan not only drives...
  16. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    This Aero is starting to drive me mad. Sometimes it feels like it would take off. Other times, like this morning, it just feels like a reasonably quick "normal" car. It's almost as if it depends on the weather. This morning was particularly warm and humid. Last night, it was a lot clearer and...

    Hi, My '94 2.3 FPT 9000 has developed a strange fault with the indicators - this being that the right turn indicators flash at about 2-3 times the speed of the left turn indicators (which work at the expected speed) - I expected to find a bulb out on the affected side but all indicator bulbs...

    Hi All, Please help my driving pleasure has been disturbed by the sound of glass. The drivers window and rear glass rattle - roof up or down - even when I'm on perfectly smooth road (I dream that my road tax is spent on roads) but if any wheel goes over a rut, man hole cover, cats eye, or other...
