  1. Classic Saab 900 (1979 - 1993)
    The 5 door 16v bus had a very noisy fuel pump, as one wag said he thought it was running at a musical E flat! Anyway decided to have a look and the pump was unlike ones I have seen before. Large plastic can on the bottom, exposed wiring, a very different output and return, and lots of metal...

    I have a 1987 turbo 16v. At low speed there is a nasty noise emanating from the left front wheel, sounds very much like a stone grinding on the disc. The disc rotor and pads are fine, could it be a wheel bearing? It's fine above 40 km/h. Noise is much worse under brakes, but can be eliminated...
  4. Saab 99, 90 (1969 - 1984)
    Finaly managed to put the brakes back together on my 99GL (1984) after about 5 months(i know im slow). Took it for a test drive to find that the gearbox is making a very loud scrubbing sound when pulling away. It also makes the same sound when its not moving with the clutch pressed fully in if...
  5. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    I was at my local saab dealership today and i got talking to the mechanic he was telling me about the engine problems the 9-5 had about there terrible reputation for seizing up he said it was down to the sump getting blocked up with sludge and stopping the oil getting to the engine, but...

    Hello, Saablovers! In Budapest is rather cold now. If I leave the car 1-2 days there is a clinking noise when I start it cold. After 5 minutes when the car starts warm the noise comes out. The noise is from the right fron part of the car. Any idea is appreciated. Thanks! Uci
  7. Classic Saab 900 (1979 - 1993)
    Just had a recon' distributor fitted as the old one was leaking oil. I've noticed that the engine is now quite noisey when cold. It seems to be coming from the back of the engine & would be consistent with metal on plastic - it's a rotating sound that increases/decreases with engine speed &...
  8. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Do any other owners know why the interior temperature sensor makes such an annoying buzzing noise all the time? Is this normal or are my ears extra sensitive?
  9. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    SWMBO has noticed that @ legal cruising speed there is a noise that can only be described as WOOOOOOOO. Iv'e noticed it is between 65 and 90, which is B annoying for obvious reasons. Any body else got this? Is there a cure, or do I have to live with it? It is a 1999 3000 v6 auto with 78k on...
  10. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    I consider my 105,000 1996 Aero to be in good condition. It flies but a few weeks ago I noticed a slightly light tinkly noise under the bonnet. I am about to go to France in this car and wondered if I needed to worry before it goes.,. Can't really hear the noise on the move and it is...
  11. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    When I switch off the ignition, there is a faint buzzing, and it seems to come from the alarm sensor to the left of the steering column on the dashboard. If I put my finger over it, it gets quieter. Can't say I've noticed it before so it must be a "new noise". Is it normal? Any ideas anyone?
  12. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    I have a 1990 model year 2.0l Carlsson (cdcalssson was a previous owner). When cold, I get a lot of noise from the glovebox area - if I get heavy with the accelerator. I assume this is the APC solendoid. Sometimes the noise seems to come from the driver's side, where I think the pressure sensor...

    Since I purchsed my 00 model aero in Jan 04, I have always had a rubble from the nearside rear tyre up to 35mph. An indy diagnosed this as a wheel bearing so I duly called up Just Saab where I purchased the car. 'Hold ur horses' I heard him cry. I have replaced so many bearing on 9-5 aero's...
  14. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    I am tempted to dip my toe in the diesel market with a 2001 model 9-3. At half the price of the same aged 320d (which my wife had as a company car and was v.v. good) I am sorely tempted. However, I have come across the following review 9-3 roadtest which includes the following statement...

    I.m suffering excessive transmission noise on my 2.3 T ...thrumming whine at low speeds...gets louder till its a loud drumming sound at about 70ish..It appears to be speed related rather than load related....I have replaced the wheel bearing and outer cv joint but to no avail....any ideas guys??
  16. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    I need some advice please. I have a 1997 9000 2.3 eco anniversary. On hard acceleration in the first two gears there is a buzzing type noise from the gear stick. There's no obvious transmission whine, can anyone suggest what this may be. This is quite urgent as next week I am having an ecu etc...
  17. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    My saab 900 se turbo 1994 has done 185,000 miles, on start up the engine sounds normal but has the engine warms up it starts to make a tinny ratterly sound. This seems to come from the timing chain end. Do timing chains rattle when hot or cold? I would appreciate any other ideas of what else...
  18. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Wondered if anyone knew, or has experienced their air conditioning unit making periodically, a noise that sounds like a road drill?! Like I say, its not all the time, and I think it happens more when the car is stationary. Do you think this is going to be a major repair? Today was really warm...
  19. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Airco is cooling normaly on my GM900 MY95. But it's quite noisy and there is significant power decrease when it's on. Sometimes it produces whistle sound (It appears when the compresor stops I think) or rattling (on idle) I suppose that it's airco compresor waving me for good bye. What's your...
  20. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Well I've gone and commited about 2/3rds of this years bonus to have my noisy on the overrun gearbox rebuilt. I've been driving it like that for over a year now and have finnaly decided to have it done before it fails. The boys at Mr L&E Abbotts will be receiving it on Sat June 14th where it...
