    I have just bought this car. It does all the things it should do very well but I have a couple of questions. After I turn off the ignition, whether I leave the key in or not, there is a fan running somewhere behind the dash. It's definitely behind the dash. What is this, please? How long...

    Hi There, My SAAB 9-3 (2006) AERO Sportswagon 2.8 V6. The issue is that there is a knocking noise comming from the front of the car as and when I go over a bumpy road. I have been to a few different local mechanics to get their opinion, unfortunately, they have diagonised the issue differently...
  13. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    I just "noticed" my fuel pump - 1995 Aero with 90K on miles. I never "noticed" the one in my last Aero which went to 150K and is still going strong for its new owner. With the old car I think it was even quite quiet when turning on the ignition while working on the back of the car, as in...

    It's a ng900 my1998 done 107k 2l turbo manual. Just been in to have thermostat changed though I'm certain this is unrelated. As I drove away in first I got a loud whirring screeching noise that sounded like gear box trouble. As I got home the engine was up to temp. Got a similar noise but...

    I have what seems to be timing chain noises. It quiets up somewhat when the engine is warmed up. Can this noise cause the knock sensor to cut back timing or boost?

    Dear All, I'd be very grateful for your thoughts on a recent development; since I had my car serviced (at Saabtech in Stevenage a few months ago) I've intermittently heard what sounds like scraping coming from my brakes - the front for sure but hard to pin down which side - in fact it sounds...

    I have replaced the entire front end really both front and rear wishbone bushes, the spring the strut the top mount the ARB drop link but I still get a graunching rubber squaking sound and a thud of metal to metal on speed hump's slow pot holes on the o/s. Now, one point, the car handles like...
