  1. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    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...
  2. Help, Advice, Saabs and Motoring
    Hi, Everyone, This is my first post here but hopefully, with a new (used) Saab in my driveway I'll be getting to know you all. I'm looking at a '99 9-3 with manual transmission; it's in great cosmetic condition but there is no engagement between engine and wheels at all (the asking price is...
  3. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi, I have a 2004 Saab 9-3 Sportsedan. (i dont have a sunroof). The passenger side floor has been slightly damp a few weeks ago, i suspected it coming from the cabin filter area or because of clogged drains, i checked the drains, they were not clogged at all, and i have bought the water guard...
  4. Classic Saab 900 (1979 - 1993)
    Hi, I'm having a weird problem where my battery is going flat. It starts with my dash lights. While driving, or stopped and the car running the left turn signal comes on bright and the high beam light comes on. No headlights on and I can't turn them on. When it is in this state I can't start the...
  5. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Looking for ideas, please, to help identify the cause of a mysterious and long-running coolant loss problem with our 2008 9-3 TiD. After running for anywhere between 150 and 500 miles, we get a "Coolant Level Low" warning, and the header tank requires to be topped up with maybe half a litre...
  6. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Hi all, We're new to the Saab scene with three months experience of a 2002 9-3 Convertible in Cosmic Blue. Just yesterday, my wife came to start it and it wouldn't turn over. The fuel pump was whirring, the ignition lights were on and the red triangle warning light was on. But it wouldn't...
  7. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    My 1998 9-5 auto broke down on sunday in slow moving traffic on a warm day. There was a strange clunking sound that seemed to come from the front right hand side of the car & slight non oil smell. I turned the engine off & started it again, it started fine but the car would not move. I had no...
  8. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Fellow drivers, I've had on and off CEL things now for the last 18 months and have cleaned MAP's, EGR's, checked pipes and so on til I'm blue in the face. Now, not being one to unnecessarily spend money I will continue my search for a home-based remedy and to that end I had a look again at the...
  9. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    On starting off, or if moving from reverse to forward (or vice versa), I am getting a hefty klunk coming from somewhere in the front of the car. Given the above I am assuming it is the engine mounts (given its a 10 year old car) but am wondering if wiser heads can enlighten me on the likely...
  10. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hello all, just wanted to ask about a mysterious tapping from engine, seemingly when warm. It's rather faint, I only notice it when the engine noise is reflecting off a near by wall, like when going over a bridge. Any ideas?
  11. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Help - you guys all seem pretty knowledgable, unlike the guys at my local main dealer... I have an automatic 2008 9-5 Aero estate - it's awesome! - but I can feel a knock when pulling away from rest, or sometimes at low speeds when I hit the loud pedal, even gently. A couple of weeks ago I...
  12. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    I'm after some imaginative or experienced advice here, my 9000 Aero is losing water somewhere. The water pump was changed a few weeks back, it was weeping slightly, and all the hoses seem sound, certainly no evidence of coolant on the garage floor. The are no obvious leaks in the interior and...
  13. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Well, its started like this. All this is on a 2.3 FPT aero with a special secret chip in it that makes it go like a greased frog. A few weeks ago I was crawling thourgh traffic and i noticed the temp needle a bit further up than it should be, bummer, I switched her off and let her coold down...
  14. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    I have a 1997 9000cs. Fuse 17 (10A) which protects the EDU temp and fuel gauges and tailgate release keeps blowing - regularly but intermittantly. I change the fuse with the ignition off and then when I turn it on again and start the car up everything is fine. I turn it off and then the next...

  16. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Apologies to all for re-heating such an old chestnut but having dredged through the various threads I've been unable to find anything that tallies with the symptoms that my car's taunting me with. It's a 1995 9000 2.3 CSE; had a new DIC at 58K and it's now done 75K, always SAAB serviced...

  18. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    I have an '89 9k s. It has decided it does not want to start. The starter is good, and tested, the ignition is good, because I hot wired it, and it still would not start. Power at the ignition is good, and flowing, however power is not getting to the starter from the ignition. I believe it is a...
