  1. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Could not figure out why I was using/losing gas. Then recently I could smell gas but never could see anything, and when the car was not running there was no smell or visible leak. Today I let it run in the driveway and saw gas leaking from the rear/tank area. I guess it only leaks while under...

  2. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    I'm after a little info for my 2008 93 convertible boot gas struts. I've recently replaced them as they started to let the boot open too far...far enough to let the boot hit the body panel. The ones I've put on now dont actually offer any assistance when opening the boot & foolishly I've thrown...

    Hello,my '09 95 1.9 TiD Estate recently went into limp-home mode. Cutting a long story short a "main dealer" (really a Vauxhall shop with a Saab sideline) - did a manual regeneration, which apparently cleared limp-home mode - and (when the CEL didn't go out after above) - diagnose...

    The fuel flap of my 9-3 Sport Estate doesn't open. Anyone an idea to open it mechanically? Any solution is more than welcome before a run out of gas.

    So bought my dads 9-3 off him... However it has one nagging fault, when started from cold there is a leak from the exhaust manifold / turbo meeting point on the front of the block. Only happens from cold and its a grey /light bluish smoke (albeit not burning oil at all, so reckon its just...

  8. Classic Saab 900 (1979 - 1993)
    Hello,I have a 1993 900 sedan and I'm pretty sure it has a 68 litre fuel tank. Finding trustworthy info is hard as I have seen different answers 59, 63, 68l. The other day I filled up my car and drove it till the gas needle was at the quarter mark. I only had 205 miles on the clock since the...
  9. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hi all, so I just had to fill up the gas for the first time in my new to me 2003 9-5 Arc 3.0t wagon. I wanted to see if this is just me or if others have this issue. I searched fruitlessly on this topic, so I started a new thread. I gas up at the local Costco. Simple enough procedure we all do...
  10. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Hello I hope someone here with experience with this car has a suggestion. The car was unused for 2 months, after which it was difficult to start (cranking several times). My mechanic put in an injection cleaner and seemed to improve it a bit, but then, after about 100 miles, all of a sudden it...
  11. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi all. I have a 9-3 tid linear and the engine management shows a p0400 (and p0400 p - what is this??) I removed the egr, cleaned it and cleared the fault. The light stayed off for 2 days and about 30 miles then came back on. So I took it off again and this time removed and cleaned the solenoid...

    i just recently got a saab 9-5. it has an abbott stage 1 ecu. on the motorway fuel consumption seemed fine but in the city it just vanished. it used almost £40 on fuel to do a 60 mile journey. could the aggressive map be the cause of very poor mpg when city driving or could there be another...
  13. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    My friend recently decided he wanted to try to get his car (2001 Saab SE; V6 petrol, 230k KMs) working normal again after it sat for a year without running once. We went over, dropped a battery in it, and it started instantly, one roll. Ran perfect, no rough idle, etc. So, the problem: Smoked...

    Hi everyone, I am Jean-Pierre from Belgium, some new guy reading you for a couple of weeks now and this is my first thread. Just bought my first Saab 6 weeks ago, a manual GM900 of DEC1998, 2.3 having 158.000km. I have made 3000km with it already, and it’s quite a delight to be in its leather...

    Hello all, I have a 2002 9-3 5 door. I have lost the bolt-screw-fastener that keeps the plastic panel over the accelerator up and away from your foot. It appears to be only one hole there, and whatever was there is missing causing the plastic panel to hang down and in the way. Can someone...

    Hi all, Looking for some advice to try to pin point the exact cause of the fault I am currently experiencing. A couple of weeks ago the car went into limp home mode, AA came out and hooked it up to the computer to find the issue stated exhaust gas pressure sensor, I really am quite clueless as...
  18. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Quick question (couldn't find anything already posted on this)? Both my rear struts failed durign the recent -10C (and below) UK temps after 13 years from new. The new dampers evidently just push on --- but is it necessary to use a small screwdriver to prise the retaining clips loose on the...

    Abbott converted 2.3 head that will fit C900s or 9000s upto and including MY93. It has uprated springs on so is good for higher than stock revs The transformation in breathing at the top end gained from fitting this is very marked. Combined with an uprated intercooler, it enables you to have a...

    QUESTION 1 Last winter I had some probleme opening the luggage cover. The gas springs moved slowly and did not really hold at the top. Has anyone an idea besides buying new gas springs? Do they have to be lubricated somehow? QUESTION 2 I am going to replace the middle exhaust box of my 93 (1999)...
