  1. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Started on the weekend, just as we were driving to catch the ferry. Spent 500 miles of motorway driving in France with my hand pressed against the stick to keep it in 5th. Everytime I accelerate it just pops out. Going down hill or on the level it is fine. Noticed that there is about three...
  2. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi all, Newbie here, hoping for some help with the AF40-6 gearbox. Recently bought a 1.9TTiD Aero with 80k on the clock (to add to the Aero 2.0T already in the family!) Loving it so far, BUT, I'm noticing the gearbox slipping in 2nd and 3rd gear after it has warmed up. Nothing cluncky or...

  4. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    I have a 96 Aero Auto and the gearbox makes an annoying 'parp' noise everytime 3rd gear engages. The noise elongates when you are driving in a hurry! It is an annoyance more than anything. I think it is a belt slipping. My question is, can it be rectified without breaking the bank? Would it...
  5. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    I took the car to the coast yesterday, did about 200 miles which were mainly motorway. It's the furthest I've driven it since buying it 4 months ago and it has impressed me even more, returning between 35-40mpg at 70 mph. I was outstanded. But on the way home when I left the motorway onto dual...
  6. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hi this is my first post. I have an MY99 2.3lpt estate. The auto box has started to slip really badly when cold but when I've done a half mile or so the box appears to be fine. I checked the oil level and it appears to be fine although I'm kind of a newbee so don't know if I've checked...
  7. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Well, it seems like everything that can go wrong with my Saab is hitting me all at once. :) This is a fairly simple question, though, that I think I know the answer to, I just want to confirm since I'm rather new to Saab's engine management. Recently, my starter has started "slipping" when I...
  8. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi All, I'm new to the forum and also relatively new to Saab ownership. I Bought 56 plate Aero convertible with 25000 miles on the clock in july this year, and having only covered 1700 miles in the car myself the clutch has intermittently started to slip when the engine warms up. I would just...

  10. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    hi All, When pulling away fairly sharpish yesterday the clutch started slipping big time, changed to 2nd and 3rd still slipping. Now the pclutch pedal has gone very light and the bighting point is right up the top and the clutch still slips when I accelerate. No fluid leakage & the brakes work...
  11. Tyres, Wheels, and Brakes
    I've got a set of 18" Hirsch Alloys and tyres on my 9-5. Whilst they seemed to be ok in the summer, I have noticed that the front wheels feel like they're slipping when I do a full turn. I have also noticed that the front tyres have got a quite alot of wear on the outside, I know that this is...
  12. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hi people One more headache, the other day I changed the thermostat, today I’m having a problem with the automatic transmission. It started when I was driving home, the noise sounded like the fans turned up high, and it also sounds like a belt slipping. I have loss of power and grip; I have...
  13. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    I've started to notice that, when I change up through the gears, there's a slight delay in acceleration after each change where the revs rise before the car responds. I first noticed it when I had a car full of people & luggage, so thought it may have been down to the extra weight, but it's now...
  14. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Hi I have a 2.2 TiD 9-3 2003 which seems to have developed a strange problem. I was driving home the other day and the revs seemed to pick up quickly with no increase forward speed. I have tested the clutch stationary and the clutch seems fine and bites until the engine stalls but when I drive...

  16. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Our Aero is getting more and more difficult to start. The starter motor doesn't seem to want to engage. I first noticed this a few weeks ago and found that by trying to start it in gear seemed to help. It's now got progressively worse. I tried bump starting it yesterday (drive opens onto a...
  17. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    My car has done 115K, im not sure if it has been replaced as i have only had the car for 15K. It is slipping slightly when the turbo is on. I think my clutch is hydrolic, if so how do i adjust it? and is it worthwhile changing fluid? Davie
  18. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    This is my first time on SAABscene and i am hoping someone can help me with my question? I bought a 9-5 2.2 Tid Linear Estate (54 Plate) approx 10 months ago. The car was second hand and had 42k on the clock. Over Christmas it went into a local garage to get it's MOT (mileage approx 50k) and...
  19. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    My trusty 9000CD 2.0i - 1995, 185,000 miles Had a new clutch, slave and master cylinder installed almost three years ago. Car has been sitting most of the time since, so very few miles since. Now restored to use, all working well, but clutch slips once she is warmed up. All clutch pedal action...
  20. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Only just got my 9-5 Aero and im very pleased with it however a couple of days ago whilst accelerating quickly the gearbox sounded like it was slipping almost like the clutch in a manual car.It has not done it again yet but should I be concerned. The car does have a 3mth warranty so I do have a...
