  1. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Conv/Combi/TurboX/AWD (2003+)
    Hello, So I have it mostly installed now, hoorah! And it's gone quite well, as a bonus the top vent is now much easier to get in and out for future work. So a couple problems, one the volume is way too high. I think this is because I'm putting an amplified speaker level output to the line...

    Hi everyone, Our 2002 2.0T 9-3 Convertible Auto has developed a hissing sound coming from the brake pedal area (inside) when your foot is off the brake pedal. Brakes operate normally and when you press the pedal but hiss comes when off. You can jiggle the pedal with your foot and make the hiss...
  3. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hey there, I just replaced the EGR valve on my 9-5 2.2 TiD. I don't have much knowledge in mechanic but it was simple enough to do, following all the tutorials on the web. After that the car worked just fine but I could hear a hissing sound on acceleration, especially on higher RPM. There're no...

  5. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Have a 150 Tid engine that has a hissing sound coming from the back of the engine on the right as you look at it ( sounds like a tyre going down ) and when you rev the engine as the revs drop there is a cloud of what looks and smells like black exhaust smoke from the same area but the noise is...
  6. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    I wonder if anyone can help: My Saab has started making a sort of metallic resonation noise when the A/C is on and it seems to rise with the revs until you can’t hear it over the engine or road noise. Would this be likely to be the compressor or a belt pulley, I have not had time to look. It...
  7. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi The other day I noticed that there was a distinct lack of low down power upon acceleration and there was a hissing sound coming from the engine area of my 2003 Aero SS. It feels as though there is no "turbo boost". I have had a look under the bonnet/hood and can not find any obvious loose...
  8. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi guys, I wonder if anyone can help me on this one. Was out and about yesterday in the car, stop start, all was well at first. Then came out of a shop, started car, and when i accelerated it didnt have the same power and pickup as normal. I have also noticed it appears to have a hissing...
  9. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hi all At a recent service the mechanic pointed out that he thinks he can hear a vacuum leak. After driving the car for a while and listening carefully I can hear it (now sounds quite loud now that I've heard it once) and it sounds like it is coming from behind the drivers consol....possibly...
  10. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    OK here's the deal. I hear a strange hissing sound when engine is running. Doesn't seem dependant on engine or turbo. Pressing the brake pedal stops it and then it comes back when the pedal is released. It doesnt sound like fluid nearly certain its air but is still there if I turn climate...

    My 2.3T Griffen Auto (1997)has developed a wee problem whereby it is not able to boost into the red in the gauge anymore. It barely makes it out of the yellow. Obviously the performance has suffered but I can also hear a whooshing or hissing of air at the current max boost level on the gauge...

    Hi, as new member I thought I would see if anyone could help prior to going into a Saab dealership after loosing trust in dealerships with my audi TT. I have just purchased a 9-3 se Turbo (99) which seems to be quite impresive for my 1st ever Saab but I have 2 problems that are causin me grief...
  14. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Bit of an odd one. Just gone to fetch something from the car this lunchtime, opened the door, could detect slight noise from somewhere... the speakers are hissing, even without the key being anywhere near the ignition or the music turned on. Started the car up, moved it to the other end of the...
  15. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Driving along this morning in the P reg with the windows down I noticed that each bump in the road (and there are a lot of them on that road) causes the suspension to hiss. I know that some noise is to expected but should it sound like a pressure cooker venting every time I go over a bump. Car...

    #when my turbo is making any boost at all, there is a hissing from behind the glove compartment. I had the speaker cover off for a bit of an investigate, and it seems like the fuel pump cutout switch is the culprit. Are they expensive to replace, and if they are, will putting up with the...
