  1. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Guys, Further to my previous thread on misfiring, now resolved thanks to all who suggested inlet / intercooler leaks, I have had a further more minor problem in the same area. During a run north to Orkney along the A9 ( longest section of average speed cameras in the UK - Dunblane to Inverness...
  2. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi, can anyone shed some light on this for me please. I had a minor rtc and was travelling approx 20 mph when i was forced to brake suddenly. I hit the vehicle in front after the car slid on wet ground. The attached pic shows the minor damage i suffered (Bumper scratched, grill caved in and...
  3. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    My Saab has always suffered from a slight judder/hesitation under minor acceleration but recently it has been getting worse. I service the car myself when it needs doing, clean the EGR valve every 10k. It has no DPF fitted (was one of a few with no DPF fitted from new) and I have cleaned the MAF...

    Well guys if you saw my other post, I was rear ended and it turns out that the aero is done, I am livid. The car is almost mint other then the rear damage. I also just bought a nice fresh front bumper which includes all lights, wipers/wiper mechanisms fog lights etc as the original bumper had a...
  5. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Alright so, I am a very new owner to a 2000 9-3 SE. I like it, it's different, and I think once it gets a little TLC it could be great. With that being said, the car does have some minor issues. Some are more obvious than others. I'm a stay at home mom with probably the bare minimum knowledge...
  6. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hi all - Just saying hello as I just purchased my first Saab, a 2003 9-5 Arc Wagon with the 3.0t and 83k miles. I hope to learn from all of you going forward (already learned a ton lurking) and if for some strange reason I ever figure something out that you haven't, I hope to share my views at...
  7. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Sorry if I am post in the wrong spot (hoping someone can push me in the right direction). We have a 1997 9000 CS and when the key is turned the engine will roll over but not start. The engine idiot lights on the dash do not illuminate (the whole bottom of the gauge cluster is dead). The...
  8. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    My Aero sometimes takes several turns of the engine before firing up. I know that it varies a little from car to car. This is more noticeable when it has been run, parked and I come back a short while to re-start and occasionally I get a slight back fire in the exhaust. My 900 has done this in...

    As many/most of you have experienced, any project seems to move well until that final 10% or 5%. Then it seems that the “final steps” slow everything to a crawl. I think that’s the story with Mark and his electric vehicle conversion of a Saab NG900. In the latest installment, Mark has...

    Eggs put together a pretty good article yesterday on the prospect of US dealers showing Caddy, Hummer and Saab all in the one facility. For the record, I’ve got only a few minor problems with it and all of them can be overcome with a nice fat injection of two things - investment and...

    Gents, the 9-5 is at my local Saab indy repair shop getting a new heater control valve and a new oil pressure sensor (my mechanic calls it the “Welcome to Eurofix” repair because they do so many). Both minor repairs that simply reflect the age of the car and the plastics used. Other than the...
  12. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Hi All, Having driven a manual 1995 aero for the last 6 weeks I can honestly say I'm converted.Love it to bits! However,it does have a few problems looming that I want to prepare myself for. Firstly,when you turn the lights on it goes straight to full beam,which in itself is no big deal.The...
  13. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Hi there, Recently ran the screenwash bottle low enough for the warning light to come on on the dash ... topped up the bottle, but the light stayed on until I next turned off the engine. On next start, the light was gone, and didn't then come on when the bottle was next running low ... as I...
  14. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Good evening Gentlemen (and no doubt Ladies too...) I have a small electrical problem on the instruments of my '98 Annie manual; occasionally the fuel and temperature gauges drop to zero, the fuel low level warning light illuminates, and the fuel consumption bar in the display goes all the way...
  15. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    I have my new 9-3 for about two months now. Is really is a great car! However, I have a few nuisances with the NavSat. Maybe you people recognize these and (hopefully) know what the heck is going on or ever how to get rid of it. • I always drive with my NavSat on - even on roads I know very...

    I would like to say first that I very much like the new style, now I have got used to it! But a minor niggle, could the "Add Signature" and "Preview Message" tickboxes be OFF by default? I never want to add a signature, and if I did want to preview my message I do know how to add a tick to a...

    Hi all, I've now had my 96 9k aero manual for a couple of weeks, and I'm having a few minor niggles. Your help would be very much appreciated. The problems are as follows: - central locking fuse keeps blowing. It blew on me today, replaced it, but that's already the second time it happens...
