  1. New Member Introductions.
    My 2008 Saab 93 Aero Sportwagon TTid has developed a Limited Performance issue with reduced power. I only bought it two weeks ago with a good service history and it appears to be in excellent condition. Drove well for past two weekends (not used M-F). Anyone know of a Saab specialist mechanic...

    Hello - I have been a Saab owner for 9 years now, I own a 2005 9-3, lately I have been encountering problems with it and it's now in limp home mode :(
  3. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)

Thanks lot for any help Daithi

    As a quick follow up to my AMM post from yesterday (the car ran magnificently this morning - smoother than butter), I thought I’d share the following. Tedjs, our GM professori, emailed me a few photos of a modern Mass Air Flow sensor. He uses these shots for his automotive class at Tri-C in...

    If you’d like to feel a little Swedish pride amidst all the recent GM-globalisation stuff, then here’s a sentence for you: <blockquote>Well, for the first time this genuine Saab has all-wheel drive cooked up entirely by Swedes—not Japanese (9-2X) or Americans (9-7x). The team, made up of...

    I've had this problem before. On my old Carlsson, I couldn't get the car high enough to get the axle stands under it. I've now got a standard 9000 CSE which needs an oil change, so I treated myself to a pair of car ramps. Just drive onto them, nice and easy, and I've got loads of space to get...

    Can anyone recommend a decent mechanic who can fix Saab's who is based near Dudley in the West Midlands.
  8. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    This month's Car Mechanics magazine has a 4 page article on buying a used 9-5. It does seem to dwell on the problems associated with ownership (PCV, SID, Sludge problems, etc).
  9. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    I've finally got the head off the Saab so I can change the gasket. Two questions 1) There doesn't appear to be anything wrong with the existing gasket whatsoever. When a gasket has failed what are the signs? The only thing I can find wrong with the setup is #10 head bolt was barely finger...
  10. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    This months Practical Mechanics has a nice little 3 page article on maintaining your Saab 9-3 (and older NG 900's). Common Problems, what to look for, where to get spares etc Page 12-14. Nice cosmic blue(?) 9-3 Viggen as thier example car. Andrew

    Does anyone know of a decent Saab mechanic around Mansfield in Nottinghamshire, as we are looking to get our recently bought Saab 9-3 TDi serviced, is running a bit rough but only has 28K on the clock! Someone else has recommended SaabTec to me, but they are a little too far in Glossop. Thanks ARK

    What Car/ Guardian report compares charging rates. But, in typical journalistic fashion, have mistakenly called the dealer's hourly rates "car mechanics charges".,,1711811,00.html
  13. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Just wondered if anyone saw the Car Mechanics article this month on the good old 9000. Kind of funny that they cocked up the bit about where you find the ignition key. Good three pager with decent text, maybe a boost for market values?! George

    Article in Popular Mechanics Sept 05 ed Same Drum, Diff erent Drummer Saab’s latest model, the 9-7X, is more than an upgraded version of the Chevy TrailBlazer and GMC Envoy. It’s the Saab version. The vehicle shares overall dimensions and drivetrain with other midsize GM SUVs, but that’s where...

    Hi. Can anyone recommend a non-dealer (ie isaac agnew) saab specialist in Northern Ireland (preferrably close to Newry) that I can take my baby to? Thanks.

    Got this email yesterday - very funny. For those of us that have ever used a Haynes Manual Haynes: Rotate anticlockwise. Translation: Clamp with molegrips then beat repeatedly with hammer anticlockwise. >>> Haynes: This is a snug fit. Translation: You will skin your knuckles! >>> Haynes: This...

    Sorry if this has been mentioned, just bought Oct Car Machnics mag. They have a NG900 project that this month needed the suspension sorting and a letter that mentions Saabscene - the Editor has had a look in here and agrees its a good site. Well done to Peter?

    I've lust picked up a copy of Car Mechanics magazine as they have just taken delivery of a GM900 to act as a project car.
