    98 Saab 9-5 2.3 lpt auto 151k The car has had a diff whine since around 45k, started very faint and kicked in while coasting or under gentle acceleration at around 30 - 40 mph.

  4. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Hi folks, A couple weeks ago I pulled away from a stop, in first gear naturally, and then depressed the clutch to upshift. Somehow, my foot slipped off the clutch pedal before I could shift and the car slammed back into first at about 20 mph. Car stalled, I got my foot quickly back on the...

    Hi - My 2002 9-5 Aero (110,000 miles) has just done the Johannesburg / Cape Town round-trip, and has picked up a "hmmmm" and a rumble. It starts at about 20mph, and continues until other noises take over. I cant tell where the noise is coming from, although instict says its the rear of the...
  6. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Hi everyone. Sorry to trouble you all again. I'm a little stumped on this one. Got a bearing type of rumble at 1100rpm when under load or blipping the throttle. Appears to be coming from the a/c compressor but could it be our old friend the belt tensioner. Put a new belt on and checked the...
  7. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Just started to notice a bit of a rumble from the rear and am not sure what it is. I can hear it from about 20-30 MPH but can't hear it above or below that. Does not seem to make a difference when cornering or braking - could it be rear bearings or is there something else to worry about? Martin
  8. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Gorgeous 9000 S turbo auto, 1991 2.3lt. Any ideas or help for this problem? The car ticks over beautifully and under load up to 30mph. However, at 40mph and 60mph its sounds like I'm driving a chieftan tank - so loud that you can't speak. It quietens at 50mph and 70mph but is still present. It...
  9. Classic Saab 900 (1979 - 1993)
    Have got a 900xs 1992 and its got a weird rumble and vibration when turning right from the left hand wheel. Raised the front end and when rotating the left hand wheel the drive shaft seems to be pushing on the diff. So the diff is moving side to side. turn the other wheel and nothing. Have since...
  10. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    From when I bought it with 54k on the clock my V6 has always been raspy! This would occur from 2500-3000 revs but I was assured this was normal for the V6. 30000 miles on it is definitely noisier, and at lower revs too, but still disappears at 3000. Particularly bad when just holding the revs...
  11. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Drove No1 daughter to Nottingham today for a Uni interview. Approx 300 mile round trip. Car was rough, almost every bump and vibration transmitted through the steering and pedals, plus the weaving about due to the high winds On Friday I had new tie rods fitted, they link the anti roll...
  12. Help, Advice, Saabs and Motoring
    Here's a thought.. One of the things I miss about the new Saab models is that they don't have the exhaust note of the old ones. I test-drove a 900 8v Turbo the other day and was reminded how g-o-o-d they sound. It's kind of a V8 noise (wasn't the original Triumph unit designed parallel with a...
  13. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Took my car to brian in Chorley - engine is rumbling slightly as revs get to top end - crank probably. He said this sometimes happens. But it is expensive to fix. £1000 or so. Nightmare! This is causing the boost to retard(due to knock sensor picking sound up). Questions: 1)Advised to fit a...
