  1. Classic Saab 900 (1979 - 1993)
    Hi Forum, I have a '92 900xs but it's developed a fast running problem when idling which is variable between 1200 and 1800 rpm. I've checked the accelerator linkage and it returns properly, and the engine runs well with normal exhaust and not black fumes, so it doesn't seem to be too much fuel...

    Hi, have a 55 plate 93 aero convertible. Car when in neutral slowly revs drop to about 700 according to dial. Car then begins to Chug and vibrate. It's not threatening to stall but almost seems like it's revving too low and vibrates a lot? Is this a common problem? Has anyone any ideas?

    Ok so i picked up a 2nd hand 2005 93 1.9tid vector sport last year. When i got it it had a traction control error and was told i needed a new cim unit. Also the abs and brake lights used to flash on the dash when took my foot off the accelorator or went over bumps. But it turned out to be a...
  6. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    I recently had idling issue with my 2001 Saab 9-3 SE Conv. [130k]. I checked the engine compartment after I heard a suction noise and found a open hose which must have come off from a black kind of valve. I was able to put the hose back to the valve and the engine would immediatly go back to...

    I have a 1997 900SE 2.5 litre V6 Saab 5 door hatch with 155,600k's on the clock. Last winter I locked it in the garage (ill health) and didn't use it for about 6 months. In the early summer I retrieved her and started her - she ran fine but started to misfire. The misfire cleared and I drove...

    Started yesterday it drive normal and everything I got a 2000 saab 9-3 se but when I put it in Park it goes to 2k rpm I thought it was the vacuum lines so i changed all of those. Clean the basic throttle body out. After I put new tires on it yesterday it started to do it. I think it might be...

    I have a problem with idling from cold and when warm on my 2006 [56 plated] 1.9tid sport. I'm told its a 2007 model?!/! This problem is not always present, but in this cold weather lately it has been a pig to get the car moving from cold. It is definately misfiring, struggles along for a while...

    Hi I've had a search but can't find what I'm looking for. I've developed an idling problem, it starts fine but will start to lose revs after about 15s falling to around 200 rpm before catching and revving to 1200 rpm. When warm the revs stay at 1200 rpm. Along with this there's a hiss behind...

    Had my 2001 93 2.0 LPT T7 in twice this week for a CEL. Seems to be something on recirc or dump valve - first time there was a hose clip missing and thought it was sorted until I booted it again a few days later and light came back on - booked in for a full investigation later in the week...

    Hi The other day I noticed that the car was running really rough and I had clouds of white smoke coming out of the exhaust. I stopped the car and left it ticking over. The engine was searching with the revs fluctuating and when I revved it hard there was smoke coming out of the back. After a...

    My 9-3 sport saloon very often idles very rough - it almost sounds like its running on 3 cylinders. However, when running 'normally' there is no sign of a misfire. It has been to my local independant garage [ who always services my cars] and has hooked it up on his computer system, but no fault...
