    Hi Guys I have recently joined the Saab family by buying a 2005 9-5 2.0t Lovely car, except : Within 50 miles of collecting the car, the engine management light came on I spoke with the dealer I bought it from who has said to take it back in tomorrow and he 'will take a look at it' but I...

    Hi, after a little bit of advice please. Just got the 1998 900 2.0T back after MOT and service - a pass and no advisories. My mechanic says the lambda sensor is not kicking in quickly enough. He tested it before he took it to the MOT centre and it doesn't function properly straight away. Car's...
  4. Classic Saab 900 (1979 - 1993)
    I recently bought a J Plate 900 convertible (my fifth 900, but I've never owned a rag top before). The previous owner had removed the CAT (& the Lambda sensor) & fitted a stainless steel exhaust. This was a beast of an exhaust (very noisey) & I have since replaced this with the Jetex CAT free...

    This is probably a stupid question, but are all 3 wire Lambda sensors the same? Need to know because I don't want to buy a universal fitting one that fits every car except SAABs, apparently :rolleyes:
  8. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hi folks, I'm in need of some advice. I have a 9-5 2.0 Petrol 2000MY. It had the engine replaced at the end of last year. Since the engine replacement, fuel economy has been very poor. Average 20mpg. About a month ago, the car started to lose power, seemed like a misfire, running rough, EL...

    Hi, this is my 1st post. I have a Saab 9-5 Areo (2.3 Turbo) W reg, since i have owned the car (4 months) the engine management light has been on, i have reset this a few times by pulling fuse 17, but after 30 or so minutes, the light comes on again, i have been reliably informed that this is a...
  10. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    My car has just been into Carlssons Saab for them to try and work out what was up with it. Thought i would post my findings just in case it helps anyone else. I replaced my lambda sensor a few weeks age after it started to fail causing the car to run very lean and bring on the EML light. I...

    Hi Folks Juts read the thread about fuel consumption and had a query about my 2001 'Y' 9-5 Aero Estate. Bought this car some time ago and love it but very occassionally the check engine light comes on usually after long motorway driving and practically never around town. The guy I bought the...
  12. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Ok, now replacing the sensor is obviously pretty straight forward, however the thing i want to know is does the sensor need to be calibrated to the car in order for it to function correctly? If it does, Is it as simple as getting someone to hook their tech2 up to the car or is there something...
  13. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    I'm considering changing my front (and only) lambda sensor as the mileage has just gone over the big 100k. My mpg is also a bit iffy at an average 25mpg. Does anyone have any opinions on Bosch sensors vs genuine saab parts? They seem to be half the price on ebay. Kev The car is a 2.0 LPT...

  15. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Hello everyone, I'm new here and I really appreciate if you could help me. I've got a 1996 saab 900 with 2.0l petrol engine. One day engine check light started blinking for 6 times in a row. As I found out, this code means something is wrong with lambda sensor. The engine stops working soon if...

  18. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Hi people, Can I please pick some more brains out there? Which wire does a Air/Fuel gauge connect to on the O2 sensor? I've got a autogauge AF gauge. Is this okay for a rough idea to help with tweaking if I play about with the boost? Im told im running a bit rich but I've just seen on...

  20. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    I'm going to replace the front (pre-cat) lambda sensor as I believe it isn't working as it should leading to some performance issues and higher emissions. I'm not, however, sure which is the right one for my car. The car is a MY00 9-5 estate 2.3lpt (built November 99) and has done just over 70k...
