    Hey, For the past couple of weeks I have been having coolant loss. To the point where I am getting the warning on the SID every 2 days. I've just been monitoring and topping up, I cannot see where it is going, or what could be causing it? Driving home last night, was stuck in some bad traffic...

    I have a 2003 9-5 with the not so popular tiny turboed 3.0t V6 engine. Ever since I got it had a coolant leak, had to top up occasionally, then more often. Seemed like the coolant was coming out the cabin heater valve, google told me it's a common problem so replaced that. I was still loosing...

    HI fellow SAAB drivers. I have a problem that you guy's might be able to give me a heads up on. Bough a 2nd hand SAAB 2.3t ARC manual on an 04 plate with 115,000 miles and a full service history (service every 7,000 miles at major SAAB garage till 2012 then a saab specialist since) on...
  7. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    I have the 2.0T engine which has done 55000 miles. The oil, which was filled to Max is now down to minimum after only 2000 miles. This seems excessive to me. I have only ever used GM spec 5w30 oil. There is no excessive smoking, no oil on driveway and it always flies the MOT. Any suggestions to...

    Hello everyone, I've come to the site with a heavy heart (that's a downer to start on) :( but I've been told by the garage today that they "can't put their finger on" what the problem is with my 9-3 Vector Sportwagon (1998cc petrol on 06 plate) and so I may as well stick it through the...
  9. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hi, "Coolant Level Low" SID came on yesterday, and foolishly I ignored it thinking I had time to look at at it later. Today, on way home, got stuck in the super-heavy traffic for which Reading is justly famed. After about 4 miles of continuous jam and stop-start driving the temp gauge is near...

    Hey, Under acceleration above 2000rpm I get really dark black smoke coming out of the exhaust combined with a loss of power. When starting the engine there is also one cloud of black smoked coming out of the exhaust. There is grease/oil/smeary stuff in the pipe that connects turbo and...

    Hi, Hope someone might have come across this. Had this car for 6 months. Just had a full service done a month ago.

    I recently purchased a SAAB 9-3 '56 plate sportwagon Vector. Nearly every time I get in the car and switch on the engine the heater/climate control seems to do what it wants, the blower usually comes on full blast and the rear demister comes on plus various other different things. I did read...

    Hi, I was driving yesterday and teh check engine light came on. There seem to be no problems except a slight loss of power. It feels as if the turbo does not kick in. I am currently 3 hrs away from home on a weeks holiday with my family. Can I drive safely back home and get it repaired there or...

    I would be grateful if anyone could offer me some advice on how to finally get to the bottom of a problem which has been plaguing me for some time. I have a 1994 9000 CDS 2.0 ltr petrol turbo (non-intercooler) which broke down last August - the problem appeared to be a loss of power to the fuel...
