  5. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hi to you all, I'm new to Saabs, had two 2.0L Mondeos estates before, and then brought my 1999 2.3L 9-5 SE estate. Love it!!! Won't be going back to them again. Anyway, not being very mechanically astute, the engine has developed a pinking sound when reving from low revs. Not due a service for...
  6. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hi All, my 2000 Aero estate pinks under load when the engine is cold, it seems to only happen in this current cold weather. Once the temperature gauge climbs off the bottom a little the pinking goes. I have recently had the DI unit checked as part of the recall and it was OK. Should I start...
  7. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    My 9-5 needs help! It pinks like a... pinking thing. At low revs when moving off until its momentum allows me to ease off the gas. It will pink again when I go back on the gas unless I'm very light. Wasn't always like this but has become worse over the last few months once the engine is at its...

  12. Saabscene: Performance
    I fitted my Forge MBC at the weekend, in line between the wastegate and the APC solenoid. Being careful, I started with just half a turn from closed, so I was surprised that I got a fair bit of pinking under load. So I closed it up to just a quarter turn, and I still got some pinking, with the...
  13. Saab 99, 90 (1969 - 1984)
    Hi all I am new to saabscene, though I have had a 99 turbo for a couple of years now - a black 3 door. In the last few months my 99t has started pinking with full turbo boost. I am generally using super unleaded with the Millers VSP additive, which in theory should give me 99 RON! I recently...

  15. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    My 9000 has developed `pinking` on gentle acceleration in each gear but only at low revs. Should I be looking at the knock senser and how can I test it?
