  1. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    I have a new (to me) 2003 Saab 9-3 convertible. I noticed two strips of electrical tape covering about half of the rubber window scrapers on the outside of the rear side windows. The tape was bridging what appears to be a similar gap on both sides. 1)Is this "normal"? 2) If not, can one...

  3. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi all, So the other week I bought my very first Saab - a silver 2003 9-3 1.8t Linear. Can't tell you how long I've always wanted a Saab, pretty much ever since seeing this gorgeous 90 Turbo in a neighbor's driveway, several decades ago. So I found this tidy looking 9-3 1.8t Linear with the...

    Read loads of threads but cannot find any that match these symptoms. Car starts fine and drives fine from cold, for about 2 miles, then CEL comes on and it goes into Limp mode. Continue driving until car reaches normal running temperature, then CEL disappears and the the car drives normally for...
  5. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    I have a 2001 95 LTP, one of the bulbs is out behind the dash, but that is sort of beside the pt right now. All I really wante to know is if my dash lights should always be on or not. I know there is a headlight switch, but I only really use it to turn on my fog lights and nothing more...it's...
  6. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    My 2001 9-3 Aero may have an issue, not sure. On acceleration and deceleration the gear stick moves approx 2.5cm forward and then back, particularly under hard acceleration. Is this normal or something to do with the gearbox mounts? There are no undue vibrations at all when driving, changing...

    The car will only get up to half boost in 1st and 2nd according to the gauge on the dashboard, the needle wont reach the red, in 3rd it will reach the red and back off almost straight away, 4th it will hit the red and stay there for much longer but by this stage I am doing 70 ish anyway, 5th...
  8. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    My 1996 Saab 900SE non-turbo runs fine until I park for, say, an hour. The car will stall and/or sputter for the first 5 min on the road, then it runs fine. This is terrible if I'm in town driving at low speeds and frequent stops. This is a new problem for me. Could it be the CPS, the...
  9. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hi folks, Just picked up a 2001 9-5 Aero, and I wonder if someone could tell me how far over the boost needle on the standard gauge should go at full acceleration? When I mash the throttle, the needle moves to the line between the middle and last segment, so just at the start of the reddy/orange...
  10. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    The electric aerial died today in the 9000... which is fast turning into a project car. Taken it out and cannot see anything the matter. There is power to the system at the small 2 pin socket that connects to the system. No noise is made by the relay or the motor as the radio is switched on...
  11. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    just getting into tuning my new 92 9000, cs 2.3 and wondering if anyone knows the difference of the spark plugs here http://www.ngk.com/results_app.asp?AAIA=1430374 we have iridium, platinum, and regular...seems iridium is best due to the price but maybe its not actually the best for an old car?
  12. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    My LH indicator is flashing much faster than my right. All 3 bulbs are flashing, but (the same?) relay is flashing too fast, at twice the rate, on LHS as RHS (which also has all bulbs working). I thought this circuit used an electronic timer in the relay, so is independent of current loading...
  13. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    I took the car to the coast yesterday, did about 200 miles which were mainly motorway. It's the furthest I've driven it since buying it 4 months ago and it has impressed me even more, returning between 35-40mpg at 70 mph. I was outstanded. But on the way home when I left the motorway onto dual...

    My engine warms up pretty quick, I am not complaining as a car engine works better warmed up but wondered if it's normal? Saab 900 2.3 1997 convertible. It doesnt overheat, no engine problems as far as I know, runs perfectly just gets hot quickly and the fans work as they should when the needle...
  15. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Recently been rebuilding my 97 R reg 9000 aero. While rebushing the suspension I noticed that the road springs have Eibach logo's on them, and the other day when I was delving around replacing the boost gaugevacuum hose I noticed that the ECU has a Hirsch lable on it & is dated 1999....The car...

  17. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)

I Have confrmed this by having my laptop and a OBD11 interface [Elm327] connected when it plays up.. I have found that IF i drive around in SPORT mode, it only...

    Hi, Does anyone have any advice on whether I should use super unleaded for my 93 2.0 Aero HOT (2000)? I have read a bit about the gains only being realised in certain types of cars, so just trying to work out if it's worth paying the extra and whether I will see any MPG and performance...
  19. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Hi everyone, I just don't know what to do: couple weeks ago I mentioned a fuel leak from the tank. I removed the tank, removed the pump (that was a nightmare - one-way valve broken & replaced), cleaned it with water, fixed it and reinstalled on the vehicle. connected the pump, attached all pipes...
