  2. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    I have a 9-3 1.9TDI 2005 120BHP Recently I have been finding that after a short trip 3-4 minutes from (first start of the day) a cold engine. If I switch off (before the engine is fully heated ) and come back in 5-10 minutes the engine is hesitating to start. I might have to turn the engine...
  3. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    My 1999 95 3.0 V6 has just flown through the MOT, hurray, but I'm wondering about the throttle response. This isn't a new thing, it has been like it ever since I've had the car (only 11 months). If you floor it from a standing start it will wait 1/2 a second before taking off. I always assumed...
  4. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    My car (2000 9-3 LPT) seems to be juddering and hesitant under medium acceleration, it's very noticable in 3rd and 4th gear at around 3500 rpm but clears up after 4000 rpm. Feels a bit like it's choking or fuel starvation and then it runs fine. Has no issues at idle. Plugs were changed at the...
  5. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    I've recently had my 03 auto Aero estate serviced at the main dealer (still under DGL) and mentioned a little hesitancy on acceleration. They agreed this was present but couldn't find the cause. I asked if there was a software upgrade for the ECU and it turns out there was. They installed this...
  6. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Hello, I hope one of you experts can help me with my Saab 9000 88 Auto turbo!!! After the car has been running for about 15-20 minutes, if I stop at lights etc and then go to move off there is much hesitation as if the car is saying 'what. you want to go now!!!' and so it crawls along until it...
  7. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    My 93 2.0 lpt (year 2000, 80K miles, with Abbott ECU mod) has just started to stall while idling shortly after starting from cold (1st thing in morning and end of day at work), and is also hesitant when accelerating, but is fine after a few hundred metres. No other problems. Started doing this...
  8. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Over the past few months my 1994 900 Turbo s has developed an annoying hesitance. It isnt misfiring and drives ok at speed. The problem happens at low speed in traffic. If I want to trickle along in traffic in 1st gear at low revs the engine begins to hiccup and you have to dip the clutch and...

  10. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hi all, my first post here. I have a 9-5 2.3t automatic (Y plate). When the car is hot, especially if I stop for a short while, it struggles to pick up speed in first gear. When this happen, the turbo indicator does not move past the white. This seems to happen more often on hot days, so much so...
  11. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    I own a 94 9000 2.3t cse. My problem is the car is hesitant when accelerating, with a slight 'misfire'. The problem has been there for about 6 months but was barely noticable at first but has worsened considerably over the past couple of weeks. It occurs mainly between 1500 - 3000 revs and seems...

  13. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    I have an '89 Carlsson, which is hesitating when under hard acceleration between 3500-4000rpm. From previous threads, i have looked in the DI unit, the inside of which looks fairly clean with no obvious signs of corrosion. One obvious problem is a loose plug/sensor unit with a rubber hose that...
