    I have a Saab 93 1.9 TiD Estate on an 06 plate. For past week or two I have noticed a hesitation when at very low revs in maybe a gear up from where I should be, ie coming down to stop at set of lights and they turn green so leave it in second when almost stopped, put foot down and get...

    Hi there, I am new to the world of Saab and the forum, so a little intro. I recently saw the light and bought a 2000 'X' reg Saab 9-3 2.0t, with 99k on the clock. My ex-Saab owning mechanic serviced it and apart from replacing a couple of suspension arm bushes and a wheel bearing all was...

    Sweden’s SVD published a recent interview with Spyker Cars CEO, that indicates that he expects a response by GM with a decision before the end of the year, even if the author of this article doesn’t believe that December 31st is valid any longer. In my correspondence with Mr. Muller of Spyker...

    For nearly six months, we’ve been following an engagement between Koenigsegg Group and Saab Automobile that took place in early June. At that point, Saab Automobile was in reconstruction phase and many of us believed that this news was enough to turn it around for Saab Automobile. Since that...

  7. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    My 1999 95 3.0 V6 has just flown through the MOT, hurray, but I'm wondering about the throttle response. This isn't a new thing, it has been like it ever since I've had the car (only 11 months). If you floor it from a standing start it will wait 1/2 a second before taking off. I always assumed...
  8. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi, I drive a -06 1.9 tid (120, 8v) and I'm experiencing a strange problem. Between about 1600 and 2000 RPM the engine response is rather uneven, almost like driving in the wrong gear. Locking the cruise control at about 1800 rpm is a shure way of reproducing the symptoms. Happens at any speed...

  10. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Can anyone provide any clues? Had a mis-fire for a while which I've finally cured by replacing the crank sensor but a "hesitance" in acceleration / loss of power remains when the car has warmed up. In chasing the original mis-fire I've had new plugs, DI cassette, CPS, vac pipes, fuel filter...

    Hello all, I have a MY2002 9-5 Aero estate which for some months has been exhibiting very poor throttle response - jittery acceleration, sudden surges, lack of power, etc. - so I read with interest the recent postings concerning cleaning out the throttle body. I'm definitely going to give that...

    I sent off a few questions to Saab Sweden and Saab USA earlier this week with regard to a number of issues. The questions to SaabUSA were concerned with the appointment of Mark McNabb and the effects that might have on Steve Shannon’s role there. I haven’t received a response on that issue...

    Did anyone see BBC Watchdog in the UK on BBC1 yesterday. Owners of Vauxhall / Opel Zafiras are buying these cars only to find that people are easily stealing the externally mounted spare tyres. Vauxhall's Response?- they declined to come on the show - no doubt as they would get a good old...

    Guys I'm still getting a 'block' on power below 2.5 k rpm. It was worse than usual today with a noticeable power surge above 2,5k rpm..almost like flicking a switch. The more you put your foot down, the worse it is. The car is 2.0 n/a with only 53k on the clock. Plugs, leads, air filter, dizzy...

    Can any one advise me why my 1990 Carlsson intemittently displays the TCS light, followed by the engine reducing speed to idle with no throttle response. Leave the engine switched off for 10 minutes or so and all is back to normal. Possibly the only clues are an engine check light coming on at...

    Well it didnt take long, Maptun Stage 2 in for two weeks and I want more! Not more power, but a better throttle response! I'm not sure if sharpening the throttle response is possible on an auto as it may be the lag in the gearbox that's the problem Would a piston dump valve help...
