  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...

    Hello guys Have a problem with my 2009 Saab 9-3 1.8t (Biopower). When I shift in high RPM (after 4500 RPM, any gear) the clutch pedal wont come up all the way. It comes up 1/3 of the way, and I have to push it up with my foot. It is possible to change gear even if I dont push up. If I pump...

    Hi, My Saab 9-3 1.9TiD (2008MY) makes a high pitched whistling or whining sound between around 1000-1500rpm, and seemingly only in lower gears (1-3). (Unless, of course, I just can't hear it in the higher gears as I'm going faster.) Anyone else experience this and have any idea what it could...
  5. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hi, my 00 9-5 2.3 LPT with 217k stumbles and jerks when I give it 3/4 throttle at 1800rpm. I am cruising normally and go to pass and it bucks and won't take off like it used to... If I downshift and get the revs up to 2500, I can usually make the pass... Is this a sign the clutch or throw out...
  6. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi all, I have a consistent misfire/judder when holding the revs (partial throttle) between 1.5-2k rpm. Seems apparent in every gear but more so in third (guessing because of the gearing). If I very slowly build the revs up to 1.5krpm and then very gradually progress through 1.5krpm to 2krpm I...
  7. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi Guys, I went through a lot of threads describing idling problems but found none similar to mine. When the car is idling the rpm is holding steady close to 800rpm most of the time but sometimes (randomly) it surges to about 1100rpm and drops back. It is just like someone touched the throttle...

    Saab 9-5 Aero Boosting Problem not holding after 3 RPM's Hi, This week I upgraded my old 2005 9-3 2.0t to the 9-5 Aero. It was my second outing, didn't really notice the boost dropping, we had a snow storm here in Vail. Drove my new car really hard, then noticed that the "boost gauge"...

    Hi, I am experiencing some kind of issue. On my Saab 93 1.8T when i stop, on traffic light my motor is not going to work at 900 rpm, but it is doing 1000-1300. Each 2 seconds changing rpms. This is happening with hot motor. Can anybody tell me what can be the problem? Many thanks, Milutin.

    Hi, My 2003 9-5 2.2 TiD is very sluggish below around 3000 rpm after which power seems to increase rapidly and it feels normal I have checked the intercooler and all inlet hoses It had a new turbo and EGR fitted by the previous owner Could this be a blocked catalyst? The injector seals were...
  11. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Hello, I am currently driving a Saab 9-3 (T-7) SE lpt lpg stage 1 @ 200 pk. I am currently experiencing problems with my car. If the engine is warm (after driving for some time at the high way) the engine stops running when pressing the clutch, for instance near a traffic light...
  12. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Started yesterday it drive normal and everything I got a 2000 saab 9-3 se but when I put it in Park it goes to 2k rpm I thought it was the vacuum lines so i changed all of those. Clean the basic throttle body out. After I put new tires on it yesterday it started to do it. I think it might be...

    Hi All, I have just purchased a Saab 9-3 1.9 Tid which loses power at 3200rpm. If i start the car and then drive below 3200 rpm it pulls in every gear absolutely fine, you can hear the turbo spool up and it pulls like a train. However, the minute i get to 3200 rpm you can feel the car almost...
  14. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Just wondering if any of you have any knowledge of the most effect rev range for the TTID engine. Obviously it's not just a case of the lower the revs the more efficiency... Better to change up before 2nd turbo kicks in? Use the 2nd turbo more often? Using the gears to break good or bad...
  15. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    I've recently been having problems with a sudden and severe drop in RPM while driving or when at a standstill. The car loses 500-1000 RPM without any warning, maybe once a day. This happens sometimes at idle with no issues, but the car has stalled a couple of times when at lights. It can also...

    Hi - Hoping someone can lend some advice here. Yesterday my 2008 9-3 2.0T started a noticeable vibration and increased noise throughout the RPM range and seems to have lost some degree of acceleration although not much. It doesn't feel so rough as a misfiring cylider - I've had that before and...
  17. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hi All. :confused: I just bought a 2006 Saab 95 Tid, 1.9L very cheap. the guy that owned it gave me a great story how he was imigrating and the diesel filter needed to be change and it would sort out the low power and the misfire on idle. It didn't This is the problem. When you start the car...
  18. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    I have a -92 9000 2.3t, which i recently acquired and i just got fixed a lean issue on it, which caused CE-light. Now i discovered it goes kind of numb when accelerating harder on higher speeds and i noticed on higher rpm (4000 and up) it kind of jerks a bit. Now i have a wideband hooked up and...
  19. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    My 2006 9-3 2.0T sedan (5-speed manual) has been wonderful for 135,000 miles, but it has recently developed an engine vibration that can be heard and felt beginning at revolutions above 1500 through about 2500 rpm. The symptoms clearly are related to engine rotation speed, not tire rotation...
