  2. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hi I have a 2005 95 petrol which has a mysterious what I believe to be miss on light throttle. Under load it goes fine, but when I am crusing along it has this strange sensation as though it misses or hunts, it doesn't slow down and the cruse control maintains its speed ok, I have changed the...

    Hi! My name is Heather and I have owned my 2004 9-3 Arc, 2.0T for a little more than 2 years now. I really liked it when I first got it, although it had close to 175,000 miles on it, it was still very snappy and rode extremely smooth. I absolutely loved it. However there have been a few problems...

    I have a 2005 9-5 Vector 2.3 wagon which had a failed turbo - so that was replaced with a TD04 and a Noob stage 1 remap. 6000 fun miles later it has started idling lumpily and occasionally stuttering on full power especially on really hot days, but without any engine codes. It also sounds lik a...

    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...

    Hi, I've got a 2004 Saab 9-3 Aero automatic. I had a problem a few weeks ago. The car had been standing for a few days, once it got up to temperature I put my foot down, as I did so the front left wheel started juddering and the EM light flashed. I backed of and gingerly tried again. The same...
  8. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Hi everyone, I have a 2002 9-3 Vert in Cosmic Blue which I've put a re-con head on as it was burning oil and using water (but curiously not mixing...) Anyhow. It's still using water, so maybe it's just a water pump leak? I did a dry and wet compression test today and go these results...

    Ok, tried a bit of a search but nothing too definitive popped up. Following the eml coming on steady (uk saab 95 aero) for the front lambda sensor, and then going off again, eventually replaced it with a used genuine one on saturday (tight budget). Road tested it following fitment on a good...

  12. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    I have had slow starts for a while, which have got worse recently. After a cold start the car was running fine. I recently replaced the injector leak off pipes and glow plugs, these have had no result. 2 days ago the car started misfiring, this then cleared, and it has since done it twice...

  15. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hi. I have 2004 9-5. Original owner. Past few years it seemed like the car would get slightly rough during idle, then smooth again, then rougher again while the vehicle was stopped. Replaced DIC a while back due to check engine lights, and those have remained clear. The other day the...

    Hello, I've got a 2006 1.8 turbo, which seems to mis-fire when cold... Within 10-15 sec's it clears and the car runs fine? Just changed the coolant temp sensor, but no difference... Also have noticed the car is losing coolant, but nothing leaking and no sign of water in oil or oil in the...
  17. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi all, I have a consistent misfire/judder when holding the revs (partial throttle) between 1.5-2k rpm. Seems apparent in every gear but more so in third (guessing because of the gearing). If I very slowly build the revs up to 1.5krpm and then very gradually progress through 1.5krpm to 2krpm I...
