    Hi Looking for some guidance with an erratic problem on my wife's 2001 9-5 2-0 ltr auto; The car will drive fine, you stop for whatever reason & come back to the car & it wont start. Engine spins & everything , just wont fire up. Leave for 20-30 mins then engine fires up fine. This has been...
  2. Classic Saab 900 (1979 - 1993)
    Hi to all, hope someone on here can shed some light on a problem I have with my Saab 900, it's a 1990 non turbo model, the problem is the idle speed, sometimes it's ok, other times it can be as high as 2500rpm but will then suddenly drop down, I have changed the idle control valve but this made...
  3. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    The car idles erratic and when coming to a stop or near stop it stalls quite often. No engine management light just the oil light that comes on briefly before it stalls. I've read quite a few posts about cleaning the IAC but I think this might be part of the throttle body on mine as I can't...

    I've finally picked up a 2001 2.0 lpt convertible after many years of wanting one, I think I originally joined this forum in 2006! I'm pleased with the car and its in generally decent shape for the age, I've done a couple of bits so far (new discs and pads, fixed the electric mirrors), now a...

    Hi, I've a 97MY 9000 anniversary. The temp gauge was sitting low and then dropping to very low or zero during driving. I changed the temp sensor on the side of the engine and that sorted it for a couple of days, but now the temp gauge sits just above the blue cold line when the engine is hot...

    My 2.2TiD revs fluctuate around 2000rpm especially when pulling away, the car feels as if it were missing but it is fairly discrete. If you accelerate off 2000rpm area the problem hardly shows itself. At idle the revs are steady wherever you place the accelerator? Recently had new turbo fitted...
  8. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Thanks to the great knowledge of Saab owners on here I have managed to work out what my car is telling me whats wrong, but I have a further question related to the check engine issue I have. I found out that 4 flashes means check coolent temp sensor. Another thread suggests taking the cap off...
  9. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Hi there My 9000 has developed some strange symptons with the climate control and has now almost given up working. Initially i had a strange noise coming from the centre air vent that sounded like aerosol spray being let off but only when i turned hard right!!!!! Now the climate control works...

    54 plate 2.2 TiD. A few weeks ago a problem started whereby, when accelerating the engine revs would shoot up by 500 rpm or so for a second or two and then drop back. I took the car into the local approved Saab service garage (Vauxhall) but they couldn't find a problem. The problem stopped...

    Hi all, I have spoke about this before. My 54 plate manual 9-5 Aero most of the times runs well, with plenty of power. However, sometimes, and it appers at no particular point it looses power. I.e, the turbo isnt boosting properly. I have had it plugged into a Tech 2 at an indie and no fault...

  13. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Got a long journey coming up tomorrow and the weather is gonna be awful so my 95 aero decided to play up. On the way home tonight the temp guage would be normal for a while then swing to cold and back to normal several times before stabilising at normal. It repeated this a number of times, it...
  14. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    My 1998 9000 anni 2.0 has developed very erratic central locking. Key fob works 50% of time for doors - always works for the boot. Internal switch by auto gear selector works 50% of the time ie works when fob is working. Either all 4 doors unlock/lock or non unlock/lock. Key fob...
  15. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Can anyone help me, the temperature guage keeps dropping as if the engine is switched off. I have changed the sensor to no avail, I think it looks like a wiring problem. Will this be affecting the engine performance? Any suggestions will be accepted gratefully

    Hello, I have a 1994 NG900 2.0 FPT and for the last two weeks the engine has been running like a bag of nails. Upon start up the idle speed rises to around 1500rpm and down to 700rpm and at all times is very lumpy in its delivery with the revs often racing up and down the counter. It has now...
