  1. Odd Air-Con Query

    Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi Chaps. This is a curious one. Yes, the weather's been great lately, time for the Air-Con! Why does the dash face level vents have different temperature air flowing? With the temp set to lowest, drivers window vent and centre vent (RHS) has cold air - lovely! The passenger side window vent...

  3. Odd rubbing noise when turning right?

    Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hey guys, I've got an odd issue with my 07 93 2.8T. Only seems to happen turning right at speed, i.e going round a round about. Its a sort of metallic rubbing noise coming from the back of the car but it sometimes sounds like it's coming from the front. I've had a brief look and its not the...
  4. Temperature gauge - odd behaviour

    Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    2005 Saab 9-3 1.9 TiD Vector Sport (6s manual) I have a similar problem to this. Prior to yesterday, for the previous day or two, I had noticed that my petrol gauge was not as it should be, as the gauge was sitting roughly 1/4 of a tank higher than it should be for the amount of fuel that was...
  5. Very odd injector problem solved I think

    Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Just bought my self another 9-5 2.2tid. Its a little bit tatty on the outside but hopefully will polish up ok. Was told it had an injector problem and it was no.2 allegedly by a saab garage. It smoked and ran rough and a little noisey. Anyway had a bit of a fiddle and swapped the EGR as this one...
  6. Temperature gauge - odd behaviour

    Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Ok - so I realise that this is an old thread that has been going for years but I only recently purchased an 85K 93 1.9Tid. Delighted with the car which has been remapped to 170 bhp. Only fault was that the temp gauge didn't appear to be operating correctly. Most of the time it sat at zero and...

  8. Odd hesitation when first at full boost on acceleration

    Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Wondering if anyone can suggest a possible cause/fix for what I'm experiencing when accelerating hard with my 2004 9-3 2.0L Aero Convertible. As I hit the red on the boost gauge there is a knock (best way I can describe it is as if the traction control suddenly kicks in for a second) once or...

    Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi there, I had an odd noise today on my 2007 93 Vector estate. I was doing about 70 mph and turned to the left caused the noise. Its was a slight rumble, low level noise that went on for a second or so then stopped. It did not happen turning to the right or at low speed. I have just had my...
  10. Can anyone solve this odd issue?

    Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)

  12. Odd buzzing at low speed....any ideas?

    Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    When my 2005 9-3 1.9 TiD Vector is ambling along at say 30mph there is an odd buzzing coming from somewhere. Go a little faster and it stops! I don't want to be doing 40 in a 30mph zone tho to stop it buzzing! I cannot pin it down as its tricky when locate when car is moving. Any ideas what...
  13. Odd question - filling up the gas tank

    Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hi all, so I just had to fill up the gas for the first time in my new to me 2003 9-5 Arc 3.0t wagon. I wanted to see if this is just me or if others have this issue. I searched fruitlessly on this topic, so I started a new thread. I gas up at the local Costco. Simple enough procedure we all do...
  14. odd fuel economy problem 1.9 tid

    Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    For some reason, on most journeys, at the beginning the SID reports really bad fuel economy - i.e. low 20's mpg town and barely 30mpg on the motorway (I've done several resets of the SID during this time and no change...) and then, suddenly after approx 10-15mins of driving the MPG climbs to...

    I hope I can explain this well and If there's already a thread I apologize. my 2003 9-3 conv was running fine and then suddenly lost power intermittently, then went from running OK but rough for a few seconds to could barely keep it idling by feathering the gas with the following odd symptoms...
  16. Cigarette lighters not working - fuse issue? Now the fm radio & iPod dock being odd!

    Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Cigarette lighters not working - fuse issue? Now the fm radio & iPod dock being odd! Hey everyone! I have a 2006 Saab 93 Vector Sport 1.9 Saloon. Recently (possibly after a service) my cigarette lighters ceased to work - both of them. On the dash and under the armrest. They don't charge my...
  17. Odd Overheating Issue

    Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Good day, Not that it's every been trouble-free, but things with my 95 9000 CSE have recently gone totally pear-shaped. A little background leading up to the issue: 1) This past winter, if the temperature was around 0C, the car would take ages to warm up. Temp needle stayed on cold and the...

    Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    :confused: 2006 1.9Tdi auto. Latest issue is an odd noise when the car changes up through the gears from cold. After 5 minutes or so of driving it doesn't happen. It sounds like a throaty rasp and happens through the low gear change ups as I pull away from a cold start. My ears are really...
  19. Odd noise identification please..!

    Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi all, Just looking for a little help diagnosing an odd noise… It’s fairly quiet, and can only be heard after the car is really warm, typically it will occur in urban conditions after 30mins or so – motorways it’s quiet. It sounds a little like someone blowing very gently over a small...
