    Hi, I am new to the forum, and as mentioned in the newbies introductions section, new to Saab cars as well. My recently purchased 9-3 1.9TiD (16v 150) has a strong desire to not be woken up on cold mornings. Once running, she is fine but it is getting there that is a struggle. Initial looks...

    I guess I know the answer to this but 2 plugs were coated, literally running, with oil when I took them out to change today. I had just started the car to move it five feet along so I suppose there was no time for the oil to burn off At 154K miles I'm assuming piston rings have finally gone, in...

    Does anyone has an idea where from I can get information on the number, dimensions and kind of rubber plugs for the floor and trunk. There are so many caps (plastic) and plugs (soft PVC) on the car that you can get crazy when trying to buy that stuff.:crazy: Any hint and help appreciated.

    Hi I know most people say just fit ngk and only fit the ohm which are PFR6D10G But they are long life 60,000m plugs for people that don't like any work to be done on their cars What would be the best replacement? Normally I use iridium tri or quad spark but they have been listed as an...

    Hi, I was told couple of times and heard rumours that if we lower the spark's gap to 0.7-0.8 the car will run/start better, especially those cars LPG converted. I'm trying to find some info if there's any negative influence on the DI cassete if we do so. Saab instruction manual clearly says...

    Hi All- First time poster. I searched, honestly. Sorry for the long post. I figured better to include the details than not. I got a sweet '06 9-3 Convertible at a fire sale price. It was technically running but sounded like absolute crap. I only looked at it at night, made the deal and...

    Hi all, I am after the connector plugs for the ECU. I need about 6 inches of wire remaining on the plug also. Unfortunately during an ECU replacement about 3 years ago, the garage left the cover off that protects these plugs and due to all the wet, dirt etc. they have become corroded and need...

    A little while ago I won a voucher for a free set of NGK spark plugs. It has to be used by December, I thought I'd use it to get a free set for the Aero Carlsson 2.8 XWD. Does anyone know the correct NGK (they have to be NGK) plug type for this car? Thanks in advance guys.

    Just thought i'd post up what I've been up to with my dirty diesel. A few weeks ago I got around to sorting out the rattling duel mass flywheel. Bought the genuine flywheel and clutch kit from neo bros for £329ish. It took me about 16 hours to complete the job on jack stands on my driveway. I...

    Hi, since replacing inlet manifold, clutch and dmf and a few other bits have still been getting a rough sounding engine until warm. Spoke to parkinson's diesel tech in newark who said it's likely to be a glow plug rather than injector and the car running rough with a cold cylinder until it...
