  4. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hey guys!! I have a 2005 9-3 and for the past 2 years, my car has been unable to rev beyond a certain rpm when the fault code of P2176 & P0638 appears, thus it drives at a very slow speed and unable to drive over any steep hills in town. My technician has tried diagnosing the problem but long...
  5. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    my 86 9000 2.2 CDI full leather interior, mag-wheels, blupunkt radio/sat nav, needs a good home. Its been on my drive for too long. The turbo oil seals have gone, so it smokes under acceleration and I've really not got the time or space to repair it. She's on a SORN so will need trailering...
  6. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi all, the 9-3 is at it again. really sluggish when accelerating...then bang on the motorway all aceleration disappears and limp home mode appears but not EML and no codes what so ever. reseting with obd or turning off and on takes this away and sometimes it comes back sometimes it stays gone...
  7. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hello. Few days ago our saab 9,5 se year 2000, 2,3l stopped. Our direct ignition modul was KO. I changed DIC and our car was OK(relative) because car went good until about 2000RPM when i pressed accelerator and when i pressed more car did nothing until my accelerator was on the flooor. When it...
  8. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Gentlemen, I am new to this forum, but I have had my fair share of Saab issues in last couple of years, and I thought I could share one of my quick'n'dirty tricks. Your turbocharger craps itself - sudden bearing failure - oil seeps into intake/exhaust, lots of blue smoke.. you know the drill...

  10. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hi, Had to bring the car back from France for Christmas, so was giving it a clean, wash etc which took couple of hours. Went to restart and battery pretty flat and wouldn't start. Charged the battery and finally restarted only to have multiple error codes - P1109 x 2, P0703, P0070. I managed to...
  11. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi everyone, i've got a problem with the wipers in that when in auto mode, or when turned off, they do not park in the home position. They end up staying appx. 30 degrees from horizontal.<br> Now i read somewhere that it could be a faulty motor, so i managed to get hold of a used one and fitted...
  12. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    I have had the same problem twice now in my 2001 9-3 sedan. I will get in the car, start it and the idle will shoot miles high, 3000 plus. The first time, I disconnected the battery for thirty minutes, reconnected it and all was well. A few days later, driving the car at a steady 55 mph when...

    Just done mine as I had a smear on the screen and my home button wasnt responding too good. Been putting it off but decided that £30 was cheaper than a new contract or even claiming through the insurance. Well chuffed, all fixed and working BUT BUGGER ME THEM SCREWS ARE TINY! I followed a guide...
  14. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Gents, Apologies if I've mis-posted. I'd be grateful for ideas about my 9-5's problem. I'm not an expert and won't be looking to self-fix, but I'm keen to get some ideas to avoid a protracted diagnosis, and I'm very anxious to find a Saab technician near Chesham (or High Wycombe, Watford...
  15. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    My 2000 9-5 has for the last few years gone the Auto Box occasionally goes into limp home mode and the nice little gear light comes on! A restart and limp home is cancelled and a few restarts later the gear light goes and the box position indicator works correctly. I finally got my garage to...
  16. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    I am beginning to reach the end of my tether with this thing but it's reminding me why I normally steer well clear of diesels! The clouds of white smoke did indeed turn out to be from the auxilliary heater and the non starting was down to the fuel draining back to the tank. New spill tubes and...
  17. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    I've always used oil/air filters from the local motor factors in the past on my old Zafira, but as the Saab is (for me) relatively new, just wondered if there is any benefit in using genuine Saab/GM oil / air filters? What about oil? It's had Mobil 1 in the past, what are your views on...

    Hi my love of my life my Saab 93 Aero Hot convertible has been declared dead after the driver drove it with an oil light on :( Unfortunately the light has never come on since I have had the car and I listened to non saab drivers who advised it could be a dodgy sensor as my oil levels were fine...
  19. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hello all, I have a 2005 1.9 tid with 98000 on. My MOT is due this month along with a service. I was wondering other than the obvious filters and oil change, what else would a garage do as part of a service to warrant a £250 -£300 price tag when a service kit can be bought from neos...
  20. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    I've had the car since May 2011 with no problems minus normal wear and tear. Recently the car has gone into 'Limp Home Mode' for seemingly no reason. I don't thrash it and spend most of my time on the cruise control at 70 - it has cut off mid journey once or twice. There doesn't seem to be an...
