  1. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hi Guys, Having just recently taken delivery of a 'cheap' 9-5 2.0t, I'm now finding the reasons for it's low price. The turbo wastegate was disconnected from the actuator shaft (thought the car was a bit lazy). A few light taps from my pin hammer freed it off and with the addition of the...

    hi again,slight problem i hope,noticed the other day my steering feels heavier than usual,even when driving in a straight line if you turn it gently right or left it feels like it "sticks" for a millisecond before moving on round,any ideas?reading bits and pieces seems the alternator can affect...

    I finally got to a dealer to see about a problem with the car hesitating for forty quid i was told dunno. 2007 93 aero 2.0 they said no fault codes came up but it showed misfire all over the place so they think it could be the balance shaft. they want me to bring it so they can take a...
  6. Previous model ranges, FOR SALE and WANTED
    My beloved 9-3 needs a new home after many years of faithful service. The gearbox is on its way out and needs refurbishing or replacing. I have a new job involving huge motorway miles so have bought a newer car. When I was deciding what to do with the car, I was offered a replacment gearbox...
  7. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    on the way to work this morning as I came off the motorway and was queueing on the slip road it seemed to idle quite lumpy and then when I pulled away there was a bit of blue smoke, the after about a minute it was fine, back to normal and no smoke, any ideas guys?
  8. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Had this problem a few times now in the last few weeks but it now seems to be getting worse. When sitting in traffic (on idle in drive) the car sometimes does not idle properly. Will happily be sitting at idle then will drop down to about 500rpm then rise again and will do this several times...
  9. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    I'm having a few issues with my fuel gauge, the complete fuel pump set up has been changed as i thought this would solve the problem, but no such luck the short version is its giving false readings, from showing empty after being filled to then half a tank 30 secs later, its all over the place...
  10. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Last week I was on my way home, about 20 minutes from where I live. The petrol light came on, but I wasn't concerned as normally I can get up to 50 miles after the light comes on, although I try not to run it down too far. I planned to fill up at the next garage which was about 5 miles up the...
  11. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Hi Folks, my 9000 has is developing a nasty shudder when accellerating round roundabouts, it goes away if I lift my right foot and doesn't happen round left hand bends. New tyres didn't do anything, I've had the front jacked up and nothing seems loose, bushes are all there and look...
  12. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    My first saab... ahh bless Gearbox: i do a fair bit of motorway stuff, and in the interests of improved fuel economy and lower top gear revs, my question is for those who modify things a bit.. The clutch release bearing or the gearbox itself is noisy so needs attention - would a 6 speed diesel...
  13. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hi, I would believe that this is a common fault as I experienced simliar when I used to own a 9-3. I own a 9-5 Aero Hot 2002 and the air distribution/con unit is playing up. When I hit the button for the air flow to remain "in vehicle", an horrendous rattling sound is heard. THe unit also...
  14. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Can anyone suggest what this may be. My radio intermittently goes off, a hard push to the bottom left hand corner of it makes it come back on usually, but it is getting much worse now. It doesn't completely go off, as in the ariel stays up and the display stays on but it ceases to be backlit...
  15. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hello Helpful people! I havent had my saab for long but have a niggly problem. When i fill up, the fuel guage reads empty with the orange light on. As the real level goes down to about half, the guage suddenly decides that its going to work again and then reads correctly until i fill up...
  16. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    The Check Engine light on my 96 9K Aero has just come on. I checked for the problem and saw that it flashed 6 times so it should be the Lambda sensor. No other problems appear and the car runs OK no smoke from exhaust and temp OK, all fluids normal. The car is booked in for a service in 2...
  17. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Hi All, Whilst looking at some problems with my wifes 9000, and aware that the MOT is due in the next 3 weeks, I decided it was time to also tackle the problem where High Beam couldn't be switched on or off reliably from the Direction Indicator Stalk making safer night time driving a little...
