  1. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hi there, A little history, have had this car since 2000 and have taken care of it. Did the PCV change, cleaned the sump 3 times. A couple of weeks ago had the oil pressure light come on. Cleaned the sump again (about 30% clogged with bits but not sludge and nothing metallic) and changed...
  2. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    N-reg 9000 Aero. Disconnected battery to change electrical part of ignition key switch. Now with car up and running revs vary at constant throttle openings. Only other thing changed was the plugs. Radio now won't accept security code and srs light is on. I am correct in that the engine...
  3. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Ever since I've had the aero I've noticed that the revs don't drop too quickly when changing gear. I was under the impression this was perfectly normal but lately after every gear change the revs stay quite high. Also I've noticed that the car seems to pull itself forward even when I've let go...
  4. Classic Saab 900 (1979 - 1993)
    When I hold a medium rev range, say between 3000 rpm and 4000 rpm, the old Swede seems to hesitate as if its mis-firing or stuttering?!? I dont't believe its the lambda sensor because I've one of these go before and then it affected the whole rev range whereas this one seems to only happen when...
  5. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    My -99 2.3 auto seems to take off rather happily by just lifting the brake pedal. I had thought this to be quite characteristic to auto gearboxes. However, I have now recently driven a couple of other autos, with which one actually had to press the gas to get the vehicle moving. Is my car...
  6. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Well my occasional high speed tickover at startup has developed into something more complicated. 2.3FPT Auto with non switchable TCS. Engine revs in N dont drop below about 1800 at all which is not fun at all!. So I pop the bonnet up and check for loose pipes etc... nothing amiss. I unplug...
  7. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    check engine light came on last night.started spluttering then revs started dancing up and down.6 flashes, thought it was lambda probe.changed it, still same! any ideas?. cheers. 1995 aero.
  8. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Ive got something wrong with my auto 1996 9000 aero. Its not boosting properly only up til the red then stops, and when its in park the engine revs up to 3k and dosent drop until you put it in drive. Whilst in drive its becoming difficult to hold it on the brake, like its trying its hardest to...
  9. Classic Saab 900 (1979 - 1993)
    My 1989 900 8v turbo runs fine and then sudenly looses revs.some tmes it picks up again and sometimes it cuts out.Have replaced spark plugs ht leads dizzy,dizzy cap,rotor arm,coil and fuel relay.
  10. Classic Saab 900 (1979 - 1993)
    I've got a couple techie sorta questions for you C900-ers out there. 1. Is there any way to strengthen a 89+ C900 manual gearbox casting so that it doesn't flex and destroy 3rd gear? 2. I've heard that the C900 Triumph based slant 4 isn't well designed for high revving despite short...
  11. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    I had noticed recently that when i change gear the revs 'blipped' slightly up as I go to change gear (presumably giving the synchro a hammering) I seem to have to come off the throttle almost completely before depressing the clutch (to get a smooth change anyway). I also notice that if i rev...
  12. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    My #1 gripe with my new (to me) '99 9-5 2.3 is the way it holds the revs up between gear changes. Before it's fully warmed up it behaves acceptably, but once up to temperature it takes about 2s before the revs start to drop at all after you come off the throttle (in neutral). I know it's a...
  13. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    I have a problem with the engine revs in my 92' J CDS. It's an intermittent but regular problem whereby the engine revs drop below tickover (often to zero) when you drop the clutch. Obviously if you're still moving when you lift the clutch again the car effectively jump starts but I have been...
  14. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    If I put my foot down at about 3000 revs in 4th (auto)the rev counter needle dips down to about 1000 revs and oscillates for a moment before kicking back up to where it should be. It doesn't seem to happen in other gears and there doesn't seem to be any drop in actual power or engine revs. The...
