  1. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi. I have been a member since 2008 ( when I brought a 9-3 1.9 TID) Today I purchased a 2008 9-3 Turbo X. Lovely looking and sounding car, the problem is, whilst driving home the 90 miles from Surrey I noticed that if I tried to drive hard the car was very hesitant and jerky from about 3000...
  2. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Wondering if anyone can suggest a possible cause/fix for what I'm experiencing when accelerating hard with my 2004 9-3 2.0L Aero Convertible. As I hit the red on the boost gauge there is a knock (best way I can describe it is as if the traction control suddenly kicks in for a second) once or...

    9-3 1.9 TDI 120 Vector Sport 2004 60K I'm getting an occasional hesitation - like a little hiccup - during acceleration in the lower gears. Strangely it's only been happening since I had some work done - part of which was a new EGR valve and intercooler. Any ideas? Thanks!

    hi, my problem is when i accelerate and come off the throttle the car hesitates on the overrun before accelerating again, what could the problem be?
  5. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hi All I think I may have ruined my car by fitting inferior parts! To start from the beginning about 8 months ago I replaced the entire exhaust as I was doing the sump drop anyway, cash was tight at the time so I went for a budget ebay exhaust. The fitting was not as easy as you might expect...

    my 2005 2.3 runs perfectly apart from the last few weeks its been slightly hesitating when cruising on straight flat roads at around 68-72mph with no load on the engine. The revs don't fluctuate, they stay steady at around 2200rpm, only visual clue is the turbo gauge flutters around the white...

    2001 Saab 93 2.0 lpt CV Just noticed my Saab is hesitating when accelerating, it's not missing or anything just seems to not accelerate as quick as it did and also when traveling relatively slowly e.g around a roundabout and then accelerating away sometimes it gives a little jolt before picking...

    I thought I'd add my experiences to those who have had similar problems with the 3.0 TiD V6. My car is a 2002 model year saloon with 85,000 miles on the odometer. Over the past couple of years I have had problems with uneven acceleration at around 1,800 rpm in fourth or fifth gear (i.e. when...
  10. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Hi all, I own a 1996 NG900 2.0 Turbo automatic with 155.000 miles on the clock. The problem is that when I floor it from idle the engine hesitates and almost dies. If I press the accelerator lightly, then it revs like a charm. On the move, I don't experience the problem, no matter how I...
  11. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hi I've just bought my second 9-5, this time an '02 Aero. The last one (an '00 2.3) died very suddenly with a CPS and throttle body failure, and given the miles it had done (190k) and the general condition of it I decided it was time to get out. This one is from a local second hand dealer with...
  12. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Just got back from a trip to Cornwall. A few days ago my car started to hesitate after changing gear before accelerating again, a bit like my old 99 turbo but worse. Keeping the revs up overcomes the problem. Anyone have any ideas before I go to take a look ? Thanks for any clues.

  14. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    does anyone else get this on their 1.9tid 150? as the revs build up from say 1500rpm, you hear the turbo spool up to about 1850/1900rpm then it backs off (turbo dumps) then at 2000rpm its off again at full boost? in fact, in 5th and 6th gear sometimes it wont actually go past 2000rpm and i...

    my 2000 9-3 se has developed over the last month a hesitation/power loss/bucking @ wot over about 3k rpm. start-up/idle/cruising/mpg/even revving up to red-line(albeit @ half or less throttle) all seem normal. i have checked hoses, air box, cleaned maf sensor and throttle body, and installed new...

    Having problems with hesitation have read posts upon here with simular problems and cannot resolve. The car when purchased came with loads of history with was great, and this problem has been with the car since new and obviously not resolved. The following was replaced by saab by the previous...
  17. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Good morning all. My 9-5 Aero is developing an intermittent hesitation/misfire under heavy load. It doesn't always happen, but it's getting more often/worse. It feels normal (so far) under 3000 rpm, or light to medium throttle. It starts and idles perfectly (so far), and no CEL. Anybody else...

    Hello... Sorry for this post to be asking advice, but I've just bought a Saab 93, 2.2tdi, 2001. It has a noticeable problem - it hesitates through 1800 - 2000 revs, and this is accompanied by a load of black or grey smoke. I've taken it to a local garage who I know, and they've put a new...

    Hi guys, Glad to be onboard and hoping that someone can assist with an issue I'm having with a newly aquired, non turbo 1989 SAAB 9000. Its a 5 speed manual and aside that has had no mods and is mechanically beautiful (motor recon'd about 6 months/10,000Kms ago). I live in the ACT which if you...
