    9-5 2.0t petrol estate 2002. When changing up through the gears as I dip the clutch to change gear the revs increase by 500 revs,have cleaned the throttle body but it was relatively clean but the revs still increase causing me to delay shifting. Has anybody any thoughts as to what else could...

    Hi all New here with an on going problem that i feel like giving up with. Long story short i had a boost problem where it would boost perfect one minute and pull the boost back the next, after working with John at JZW he came up with a Rev 2 map which solves the issue.... But adds a new issue...

    Saab 9-5 Aero Boosting Problem not holding after 3 RPM's Hi, This week I upgraded my old 2005 9-3 2.0t to the 9-5 Aero. It was my second outing, didn't really notice the boost dropping, we had a snow storm here in Vail. Drove my new car really hard, then noticed that the "boost gauge"...
  5. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    I have done over 100 miles in my Aero HOT today and have been enjoying it since I have fixed the surging. I now seem to have another problem, if I accelerate hard the boost gauge sometimes goes just goes into the red as it should and sometimes only goes half way through the yellow. It also...

  10. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    I've searched the forum a few times now and have gathered a lot of good information, but would like some direct input from others now. Having spent a bit on keeping the 'Blue Meanie' going over the past year [MY 00 Aero Estate - 130k miles] I've re-decided [yes, not for the first time] to keep...

    Now here's a strange one! for months now at speeds over 115-120 there is a misfire that can be a real pain and forces you to ease back below 110 where it seems to be fine (yes abroad). in the last week, when accelerating the engine starts to boost then apears to misfire and feels like its...

    Is there a gadget anyone has come across which alleviates the, albeit slight, drag of holding the button down when folding the roof up or down? Would be lovely to just flick a switch and be done with it (OK, would still have to do the latch as well). Thanks JB
  13. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    I monitor the prices that 9000 Aero's go for on "that internet auction site" and just recently a couple have gone for storming money. OK, I accept that a low mileage one will attract top price, but I do wonder if a reasonably decent Aero with average mileage is now turning the corner and...
  14. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    I've been doing some research today and looking at depreciation over the last year comparing the 9-5 Aero, the Audi A6 and the Volvo XC90. All 3 year old petrol auto estates. Conclusion is the Aero has dropped about 22% over the last year, the A6 has dropped 18% and the XC90 28% but because...
  15. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Amongst the various other bits of car-related angst I've had recently, the wastegate arm and the solenoid rod have parted company on my 1994 2.3t. Couple of questions - firstly, is it an ordinary circlip, and secondly, if so, what size? Is there a part number or standard source of these? TIA.

    Just been for a quick run to pick up one of my offspring, down the M27. At about 95ish I floored the gas in D, she's an auto you know. No problem there then, she kicked down to about 4k rpm shot up to 5k5 and stayed there, engine would rev no further, I let off on the gas a bit and she went into...

    Hello guys, been reading lots of posts about varying mpg / boost etc etc. Mine is doing around 25-28mpg according to the computer. Boost is either high yellow or mid mixed section on the guage, which is confusing, but I put it down to boosting higher when it's running cooler (temp guage not...

    On my 99(V) 2.3Lpt se estate, when changing up the gears the revs hardly drop at all, I have a new throttle body because the old one was worn but it still holds the revs between gears changes. Is this normal for these cars or can something be done to stop this?
