    Hi, 06 9-3 1.9TID Sport Wagon Auto My second more important problem is i have a lumpy idle. Firstly thanks to the forum i was able to take the EGR off and give it a really good clean, unfortunately it didnt make a difference. The car when cold starts with a short/small puff of white smoke...

    Hi all, I've got a 08 Turbo X Auto which has developed a problem whereby acceleration is lumpy. However this does not happen all the time: - The main lumpiness is between roughly 3-4.5k rpm, and only in gears 3-6. If you accelerate from standstill the car will accelerate smoothly up to the...

    Hello, I got this problem with a 2.0T Aero 9-3 2005. On my way to work it threw up an engine light, I quickly read it - P0134 - pointing to O2 sensor, but also had P1312 (misfire in cylinders 1/2) as pending. Engine felt perhaps just a bit lumpy and I could tell only at idle, cleared the codes...

    Bought my 2004 car last November with just over 90K miles. Just before Xmas I brimmed the tank for the first time and set off from the filling station with the gauge reading full. A mile or so up the road I noticed the fuel low light come on and the gauge reading empty whereupon it stayed for...

    Hi All :) I have a S reg 9-3 SE 2.0 petrol. Apart from the starting issue that I have yet to get to the bottom of and solve, it has started doing the following. When at the traffic lights, or just sitting idling, or even when going down a hill and not pressing on the accelerator at all, it...

    When I start my car from cold it's a bit 'lumpy' kinder sounds like its almost struggling a little to keep going, but this only lasts a few mins and then it's fine and sounding normal. I had a new clutch fitted last year and not the flywheel at the same time as I was advised the flywheel was...

    Guys I have a 1.9TTiD and noticed that when you start the car when cold, it idles quite lumpy for the first minute then is fine after. There is nothing wrong with the car, starts and drives absolutely fine. Any ideas?
  11. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    My 9-5 1.9tid when it starts from cold for the first few seconds ticks over like an ancient tractor, is this a feature of this engine? It does have the Hirsch 175 bhp map on board. Once say 15 seconds or so has elapsed it settles to an even 800-900 rpm idle speed.

    Hi Everyone, I'm new to the forum and was wondering whether any of you had experienced similar problems to mine. I have a "56" 1.9 Diesel 9-3 (150BHP) which runs lumpy when driving in the lower rev range. Sometimes it's hardly noticeable but other times it feels like your kangaroo hopping. I...

    Good day, friends! Having recently replaced my spark plugs and some vacuum lines, I'm experiencing an issue I wasn't before. I'm having an intermittent but very marked misfire at idle. Since my exhaust is currently doing its best impression of Swiss Cheese (it's got talent, let me tell you)...

    Hi, I've recently purchased a low miles 2006 9-3 estate 1.9 tdi (120) which runs lumpily (feels like it's not firing on all cylinders) when I pull away after it sits in traffic for 10 mins plus or after a hot restart (car up to temp, park up for 10 mins, restart and pull away). Problem clears...

  19. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Folks, a bit of advice please. The radiator on my 2.3 LPT Anniversary Auto (1996) started leaking badly yesterday. Leak was at the bottom hose area. Connections are fine, it's definitely the radiator matrix that's gone, so I've resigned myself to fitting a replacement. I think there was too much...
