  1. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi all, New here, hoping for some help. The car is a 2005 9.3 SportCombi 1.9 TiD (150hp). Today my 9-3 started smoking a darker colour smoke (or even bluish) from the exhaust, which it has never done before. When I came to my destination, the engine was running rough, with a strange rithm. I...

  4. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    I have a 2009 1.9TiD with nearly 69,000 on the clock. Serviced by the same independent Saab specialist since new (by previous owner then me). Over past 4-5 weeks I've noticed that it's idling roughly, and this seems to be getting worse. It's only affecting the engine when not moving - idle is...
  5. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Hi everyone. I've been having some issues for my 9000, some of which have been around before I bought it. I'm going to try to organize this in a way that makes sense, since it's kind of an infodump. I have a 1996 9000 Aero, manual, non-TCS and 100% stock. I'm using a Bosch bluetooth OBD2...

    We have a 2005 Saab 9-5 Arc sedan with 100K miles on it. It's my wife's daily driver. A few days ago she said the engine was running rough and wants to die after putting the transmission in gear. She also said the engine light on the dash is on (continuously on – not flashing). This morning...

  9. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    My SAAB 9-3 10/2003 Vector 175bhp Turbo Cabriolet generates a lot of "clonking" from the rea when driving over rough road surfaces. All the suspension "rubbers" are in 1st class condition, the Exhaust suspension units have been renewed, as have the Shock Absorbers. There is no trace of anything...
  10. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    HI all, A week or so ago my 9-3 stalled comin into a roundabout and when I restarted there was a big reduction in power. It'll drive okay and (just about) overtake but it's still missing a lot of power. It's also become very rough and smokey at startup but once it runs for a couple of minutes...
  11. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    We just purchased a 2005 9-5 Arc sedan with 72000 miles. It runs O.K., but the idle is a bit rough. The RPM will increase for a second, decrease for a second, and then steady out. Four seconds later the RPM will increase for a second, decrease for a second, and then steady out. Over and over...

    Hi Guys, I recently purchased a 2001 saab 9-5 estate with 168K ks on it. when i purchased it it was in immaculate condition but it had the signs that it had been sitting around for a while. To begin with it a really rough idle and was doing 16ltrs per 100Ks, i serviced it with new spark plugs...
  13. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi, My 9-3 Aero has over the last 2 days started to sound fairly rough on tick over and was idling at around 1100rpm that last couple of starts, just wondered if any experts on here had any ideas what it could be? Car is a 2003 2.0T Aero with 73k on the clock (full history) and in the last 8k...
  14. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hi. I have 2004 9-5. Original owner. Past few years it seemed like the car would get slightly rough during idle, then smooth again, then rougher again while the vehicle was stopped. Replaced DIC a while back due to check engine lights, and those have remained clear. The other day the...
  15. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    I have a 2004 9-3 2.0turbo. Just replaced the head gasket and on start up it had a really rough idle. I'm sure the timing went back exactly the way it was. To be on the safe side I ordered a camshaft locking tool for a Z20NET engine as I was told this was the same engine. The tool turned up...

  17. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hello, I changed the spark plugs today after I got a few fault codes that per this site could be due to old plugs, as the DI uses the plugs for certain measurements. With the old Bosch ones (surprised they weren't NGK), it run fine. I went on the NGK site to see which ones are the right ones...

  20. New Member Introductions.
    Hi there, I've always wanted a Saab - so the other week I traded in my '96 Toyota Landcruiser Prado for a 2003 Saab 9-3 1.8t Linear. Woohoo! Test drive went well, the AA (NZ AAA) inspected the car and they thought it was one of the best 9-3's they had seen in a while...
