    Hi Folks, Has anybody experienced a clunk sound after pulling away? My car does it i.e. about a second after pulling away when clutch is fully released, although it only does it the first time you pull away after starting ignition. Pulling away at junctions etc, produces no sound. However...

    Transmission Issues Hey scene I just picked up a 2003 Saab 9-3 a month ago and I am having a strange issue after fixing what I thought was just a bad input speed sensor on the trans. After I replaced the input sensor and cleared the codes she drove normal for about 20 minutes around some back...
  3. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Prelude: A van ran into the back of me earlier today on a dual Carriageway, then when driving home the EGR finally gave up the go so I had to try and keep the revs over 2500 (fun through town) with a dodgy DMF. So far a bad day...:mad: Anyway I finally stumped up the cash to get my DMF changed...

    Hi all, This has happened twice over the last 3 weeks now, when removing the key the steering wheel lock didnt engage, and when I inserted the key, started engine no error message on SID, I removed key, locked car, left a few hours, started car drove home and removed key and the steering lock...

    When I stop my manual 2000 9-5 - at traffic lights for example- and take my foot off the clutch and leave the car in neutral, when I engage the clutch again and shift the gearstick into first, there is a 'thump' that can be heard but not felt- not particularly loud but noticeable. Apart from...
  6. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    I've noticed that on the odd occasion (probably after 5 to 10-ish stops), the steering lock doesn't engage itself. Why doesn't it? No error's are thrown up on the SID and the ABS+TCS+ESP system appears to be functioning correctly. If I reinsert the key and remove it, it always has re-engaged...
  7. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Hi folks, A couple weeks ago I pulled away from a stop, in first gear naturally, and then depressed the clutch to upshift. Somehow, my foot slipped off the clutch pedal before I could shift and the car slammed back into first at about 20 mph. Car stalled, I got my foot quickly back on the...
  8. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hi, I just recently purchased a Saab 9-5 Estate (2004 2.3lpt). One thing I have noticed is when I engage the clutch there is a bit of movement in the gear stick and I also feel a clunk via the steering wheel. Also sometimes on idle the car shakes a little bit. Do others have these odd little...

  11. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    For the past 2 days I am having a difficult time removing the key on my 2000 9-3 se convertible. It does not seem to engage in park all the way. After applying more pressure to the brake petal, jiggling the automatic shifter and with some force the key comes out. However, when this happens I can...
  12. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    My ACC doesn't blow cold even when I turn it down to LO. Listening to the engine there seems to be no indication of a load going on from the compressor. I suspect its probably just a low gas problem and its decided not to engage the clutch. Is there anything else it could be and are there...
  13. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hi, Looking at replacing the trusty 9000 with a 9-5. I looked at one which occassionally refuses to engage reverse but otherwise pretty good. I noticed on some threads that this was a common problem & there was a mod for it (apart from new gearbox I presume). Can anyone enlighten me before I...
  14. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    On several occasions, my car will come out of gear and go into neutral when I come to a “quicker” stop. The shifter is still on (D) but will just rev when I reapply the gas. My car is an automatic and will sometimes do this upon start-up. Please tell me this is not a transmission problem...
  15. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Over the past week or so I have been getting trouble trying to put the car into reverse when stopped. It seems at worst if I park and switch car off and then try to put into reverse. It's feels rubbery and if you really throw it hard in it will go, if I'm still running I just put it into 1st...

  17. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    '91 2.3T Manual.. Like the title says, when stationary, if I engage reverse I get a "crunch" and a bit of a jolt in the drivetrain/car. I don't have to let the clutch back in for it to happen. It doesn't happen selecting any other gear while stationary. I think if I go out to neutral and...
