    This has been a long running issue of a really high level of exhaust fumes when it decides to do a dpf regen. I recently took the car to a new Saab garage for its service and I mentioned the dpf issue. The mechanic said that the dpf I have on my car did not look like a genuine Saab one but an...

    Afternoon all, I have just driven the wife's 1999 9-3 Turbo SE convertible and the travel on the brake pedal is incredible. If it wast for the rear discs I would say the drums need adjustment..... I have just bled the brakes twice with no change, all wheel bearings are ok and apart from some...

    We just bought an 07 1.9 TiD (150bhp). It's a really nice car, loads of power, very comfortable and great to drive. The problem is that if you drive, for instance, for a few miles at a reasonable speed, say 60-70mph, when you then slow down in traffic, the car smokes a lot. Swirls of blue/white...

    Hi Guys, I recently purchased a 2001 saab 9-5 estate with 168K ks on it. when i purchased it it was in immaculate condition but it had the signs that it had been sitting around for a while. To begin with it a really rough idle and was doing 16ltrs per 100Ks, i serviced it with new spark plugs...

    Ive inquired with my SAAB tech about a software update for my TTID Does anyone know will it cure my excessive blue smoke on a cold start (when the car has been started up after sitting for a couple of hours) Im near sure the smoke is something to do with an unsettled DPF

    Hi, First time Saab owner first post. I seem to be geeting very bad fuel economy with my new 1999 9-5. Its a 2.3t and the onboard mpg gives me a reading of 16.1 to 19.1 mpg. Even when I drive very carefully I cant get it above 19.1. I just filled the tank (£77 at 129.9) it gave a reading of...

    Our second hand 1999 9-3 has always required two hands to get it to hold on a hill. I recently decided to sort this out and replaced the shoes and disc/drum. I have adjusted it according to the manual, but it still requires excessive force. The cable appears ok. My only clue is that the drum...

    Hello guys. I am new to the forum and need some advise. I just became a proud owner of 1999 2.0t lpt auto9-3 convertible that put smile on my face whenever I take it for a spin. There is only one concern on my mind - how much petrol should this car take. My sid display says the car does about...

    Just checked the pressues on my 2001 Griffin and was shocked o find both rear tyres (Falken F452's) almost down to the wear bars. They were new in January and have covered 7000 miles, the fronts fitted at the same time are at 5mm. The car passed an MOT in April with no advisories. Any clues...

    I have a 1995 saab 900 2.3 (non-turbo) which appears to be getting too much petrol causing lots of white smoke from the exhaust. Spark plugs are sooting up and the fuel pump is running all the time as soon as ignition is switched on and for up to 3 seconds when ignition is switched off. Plugs...

    Hello, hoping someone can help as I have seen similar topics ... I have a 2001 93 Tid, with 86k on the clock. A few weeks ago I had an air intake pipe split, the pipe from the intercooler to the turbo at the front of the engine, which produced a huge loss of power and black smoke - I sorted...

    Hi all, Having a bit of trouble with my 1999 9-3 2.0T. I had the 90K service done about 2 months ago (car has near 93K now), and ever since the car almost always cranks for anywhere between 5 and 10 seconds before starting. It seems to be worse when the engine is warm, but still does it...

    Hi Folks, Any of you ever noticed a faint but irritating chemical smell in your car? I have checked coolant but no loss. I have also noticed that the front dash gets very hot (SID, Stereo and ACC control units). Is this a common occurrence with these cars after a few hours travelling? I wondered...

    Hello, I've got 16" Saab alloys with 205/50/16 tyres on my 1999 9-3 TiD. The majority of manufactureres only make this size tyre in 87 load rating. I suffer the problem of the outer edges wearing out a lot quicker than the middle of the tread, so I want to try some tyres with 91 load rating...

    Back on here with the 93 Tid 2.2 115bhp 2000 plate: Recently using a lot of oil. Usually top up every 3/4 weeks with maybe 2-300ml, but recently 'Check Oil' Sid message came on and had lost 3/4 of dipstick level from full in only 2 weeks with very average mileage covered. I do unfortunately do...
