  1. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hi everybody - i am new to forums of this sort but my car has forced me into it. OK so i have a10/11 year old Saab 9-5 TiD 3.0 which i have had for a year and it has been relatively reliable for a car of that age. It was bought with about 67k miles on, FSSH and so on so not a bad car. It is a...

    i have a 2003 Saab estate manual with approx. 200k miles on the clock, and recently its starting jumping out of 5th gear. Seems to be worse when warm, and certainly worse when towing. Is this just down to a worn gearbox ? any remedies at this stage ?

    Just purchased my first Saab, a 2004 9-3 Linear, automatic. It was a college student's car that has sat for the last six months because she didn't have the need for a car. Started and drove when I got it but it had some misc electrical gremlins - gas gauge doesn't work, tail light was out...

    Hi Team! I have had my 9-3 TID (2005) for several months now and enjoyed every day of my ownership. The only thing that has driven me mad is that the cd player (multichanger in dash) makes the cd's jump on a regular basis. It's not the cd's as they are quite new and it gets worse if I play...
  6. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    hello I recently bought a 1999 Saab 9-3 with 300 000km on it. The car drove fine for the first 100 kilometers or so, then when i went to germany to test it out at full speed, this is what happened: after driving 212 km indicated on gps, that is, the max speed reached... sustained for about one...
  7. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    A few times now my accessories belt has jumped sideways a couple of grooves on the A/C compressor pulley. Each time I recall I've used some higher revs. Easy to get back of course, but I reckon the belt tension is slacker than I think it should be - is this the signs of a knackered tensioner...

    Hello, My 2001 93 aero has just covered 108,000 miles and on a trip to Manchester this weekend it jumped out of 5th gear twice on the motorway. It is fine in every other gear and stays engaged but you can simply push it out of 5th with very little force. It will sometimes "crunch" going into...

    Hi, I own a 9 5 estate 2.0t manual 02 my, 107k miles. Love the car, and in the three months owned have covered 3k miles with no issues. Today on a trip from Devon to B'ham and back, mostly motorway, the car jumped out of 5th gear near Bristol, and would only stay put if I held it there. I had...

    Hi there. Anyone else had this problem or anyone advise on a solution? Gearbox on my 2002 3.0tid estate is bouncing out of fifth. There's no graunching, all oithers engage properly. Box is a replacement fitted 18 months ago, has now done around 65k, if the salvage people are to be believed...

    Could anyone shed some light for me please on my 2000 Aero jumping out of second gear (117k)? It happens usually when i am slowing down (with foot off accelarator). It stays put if i am accelarating, and doesnt seem to happen in any other gear (although the box can be hard to select 1st or...

    I've had a Kenwood CD changer in my Mk7 Escort for some months now and it has been fine, but recently CDs have been jumping a bit. They didn't used to when I first fitted it The unit is fitted to the underside of the front passenger seat. Is there anything I can do to reduce the jumping? i.e...

    Hi, I have been having trouble with my 1995 900se turbo gearbox, after taking the advise of people off this site i have managed to get the car to work in all gears apart from 4th. Each time fourth is selected it jumps out under accelleration with a grinding noise, it appears to go into gear...

    I've finally got the Bilstein suspension kit and poly TCA bushes fitted, but my dash-mounted Saab CD player now tends to jump at every opportunity - clearly the new suspnesion is the culprit. Anyone else suffered the same thing, ans what did you do about it? I'm considering going for the...

  18. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    When i first drove the 9-5 aero, i realised that the gearchange required particular attentive movements of certainty when changing as it is not what may be termed a slick change. I seemed to make improvements in evolving towards a slick change by changing the gearoil. But today, it decided to...
