  1. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    I've noticed that my car has developed a small steering shimmy when driven at low speeds (a bit like the shake you get with unbalanced front wheels but much more gentle.) I initially put it down to road surface but it occurs exactly the same on all road surfaces and disappears once you get above...
  2. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Greetings Saab owners. I recently took ownership of a 2004 Saab 9-3 2.0T Aero (Today). According to the great internet I should get a 0-60mph acceleration time of about 9 but I am getting more like 11.8 which is a major difference. Now, I have never owned a Saab and I have never had a turbo car...
  3. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    I see on the other Saab forum that someone solved a similar problem as on my 2011 TTiD. I'm not a member on that so figured I'd put the link here and ask the question. http://www.uksaabs.co.uk/UKS/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=126107&start=120 Given that I don't want to remove the sump etc, what do...

    Hi all, Got a Saab 93 06 reg 1.9 TiD (120bhp) The car has been serviced a month ago and I now I notice that from time to time, specially on 3rd and 4th gear, If I accellerate slowly from 1.700 RPM the car starts breaking up on accelleration... fails every second... I have no idea on what...

    Hi Folks, I changed my oil about 1000 miles back along with the filter. My car is pristine and looks like it came out of the showroom. I've done 3 oil changes on the car. I know it's not the drain plug. I do see some oil in the area of the filter on top of the motor. It's dripping but no smell...
  6. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    After six trouble-free months my 9-3 has a hiccup! The rear offside electric window goes down OK, but is painfully slow coming back up, even stopping altogether at times. If I push up on the glass and operate the switch it all works fine, also if I physically pull the glass up manually a bit, it...

    2000 9-5 5 spd revs take too long to drop between gear changes makes for slow shifts have to wait .apparently the ecu was upgraded before i got it and has been fitted with the mitsubishi turbo
  8. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    As above really, my 9-3 automatic 1.9 TiD is so slow pulling away it's getting to the point where in a few situation (i.e. pulling on to roundabouts) it's actually dangerous! If I floor it from a stand still there is a period of around 5 seconds or so (which doesn't sound much but when you need...
  9. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hello. I have a 06 Diesel 93 manual, which chuggs between 2000 and 3000 revs under slow acceleration. This does not happen every time. If I accelerate fast the car never chuggs/jumps and the pick up is fine. This is most obvious in 2nd and 3rd gear. Could this be the MAF, an injector or worse...
  10. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi, I've just bought a Saab 93 1.9TDI (150bhp) with the 6 speed auto box and it seems to have a realy slow pick up when accelerating from a stop - no matter how far down the accelerator is down it just won't pick up quickly (revs or speed). It almost feels like something disengages when i stop...
  11. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    2005 9-5 lpt auto 45,000 miles. While reversing into a car park space yesterday, just on tick over (1000rpm) to provide movement, the engine started 'surging' slightly making me have to control the movement on the brakes. Shifting into neutral stopped the surging. Same thing today in a queue...
  12. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi All, I have a 9-3 2003 Aero petrol. When I start with the key the car is very reluctant to start by it's self. If I hold the key for a while it starts splutters a bit then goes to tick over revs. On the other hand when i turn the key and depress the throttle it starts absolutely fine. I...
  13. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hi It's pretty much as per the title really! I bought the car in the summer and it always seemed slow to warm up. With the cold weather, it's now taking longer and longer, and I'm now getting a check engine light and the gauge drops to zero after about 15 mins of struggling to warm up. THe...
  14. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Ok this happens some times, the engine takes a bit longer to heat up, no problem ring the dealer get it sorted. Call back from dealer, the cost £330. yes THREE HUNDRED AND THIRTY THREE QUID!!!! Job done on warranty, so no charge to me. Apparently nothing special about themo, just a bog...
  15. Tyres, Wheels, and Brakes
    One of my rear tyres is losing about 1 psi day (unmeasurable daily but consistent averaged over a few days). There is no obvious tyre damage, lots of tread left so its worth saving. I guess its off to a tyre specialist soon, but the little local ones are closed down long ago and I don't quite...

    Hi yet another problem with my 9-5 2ltr eco when changing gear it is very slow to drop the revs, it ticks over fine and revs fine just slow at dropping down. It has always been slow but now it is taking about 3 secs to drop, a long time when changing gear. Des
  17. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    I've slowly been losing water from the expansion bottle on my 05 2ltr lpt for about 4 months. I've had it in to the dealers twice, and its had 2 pressure tests with not apparent drop in pressure - and they can't find a leak. I've even replaced the expansion cap lid. Still the water slowly...
  18. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Hi All, Long time reader (some great tips and advice on here!), first time poster... I have a 51 plate 9-3 LPT SE 66k. Bought 18 months ago and love the car. Had a full Saab dealer service history from new when I bought it and I've had it looked after by a local independent since. Back in...
  19. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hi All, 2008 9-5 Aero. Noticed this when I bought it back in the summer. The engine has a much slower turnover at startup than any of my previous, motors, even when hot. Obviously in the cold weather it has been even slower which prompted me to ask whether this is a feature of the Aero's or a...
  20. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Anyone else find this: The cars switchgear/controls are slow to respond. Yes, they work, but after half a second. Not at fighter plane reaction speed. A good example is, in the dark, I sometimes turn the headlights off momentarily to say thankyou (an inverse flash). In my other cars this just...
