  1. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Hi. My 1993MY B202 engined 9000 won't start (Jetronic rather than Trionic). It turns over well but fuel doesn't seem to be coming through to the cylinders. I've checked the DI but putting in a set of spare plugs, earthing them on the engine and all four spark which (hopefully) means that the...
  2. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi All Saab 93 Sportwagon 150 Went to start car yesterday, cranking the engine over but it didn't catch. Tried again the car then completely died. I have since fully charged the battery, still will not start. The sequence I have noticed is, on the third notch of the key in the start up...
  3. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    A couple of weeks ago the wife said her car (a 1993 CS XS 2.0i - non-turbo), really struggled to get home, with huge loss of power. Cut a long story short, found out that one of the fuel pipes was practically off the fuel pump. Re-fitted pipe which has obviously stopped the fuel 'swimming...
  4. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Can anyone please help? Our 2.3t 1998 has now for a long time been an occasional nonstarter. When faulty symptoms are: - engine cranks OK but does not start; not even for the familiar short period when you forget to disengage the flashing anti-theft-function. - occasionally it seems to help...
  5. Classic Saab 900 (1979 - 1993)
    Thanks for all the previous advice from my post about 'loss of compression' (see previous post Dec'05) i did indeed triple check the timing, after getting it as near to perfect as possible - the compression had returned back to all four cylinders at around 10 bar. Only problem is the car starts...
  6. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Went to start the WombleWagon today and it's not looking good. The engine cranks fine and there's plenty of power in the battery - off-load voltage is 12.4V and cranking voltage is 11.4V, battery now freshly charged. It's a 9-5 2.0t, MY00 with 113k on the clock, so it could easily be the DI...
  7. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Now that summer has arrived full-blown, I have just been reminded of a problem that crops up when temperatures are really hot. I have a 1991 9000 CSE 2.3 turbo, 5 speed. If I go for a short run say 35 miles or so and then stop for a brief period, say 5 minutes, the starter motor does not turn...
