  1. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    We just bought an 07 1.9 TiD (150bhp). It's a really nice car, loads of power, very comfortable and great to drive. The problem is that if you drive, for instance, for a few miles at a reasonable speed, say 60-70mph, when you then slow down in traffic, the car smokes a lot. Swirls of blue/white...
  2. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    its starts stuttering when driving at low revs, when i stop the engine is hunting and the cooling fans are on, checked the coolant reservoir and the water has risen, carefully loosened the cap and the water has started overflowing. i changed the coolant not long ago, so im not sure if it...
  3. Help, Advice, Saabs and Motoring
    Ok, usually it's a wheel balancing issue but I have had this done and my car (1997 Saab 900 auto covertible) has a very bad vibration when doing over 60mph. What's making is strange is it only does it when accelerating, for expample it will vibrate from 60-70 and if i stay at 70 without...
  4. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Morning all, I've noticed that although my 05 95 2.2 TiD is lovely and smooth and comfortable on faster roads (dual carriageways, motorways, A roads etc), it is quite noisy and 'clonky' at lower speeds when i go over bumps / road surface deviations. I've gone very slowly over speed bumps to...
  5. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Not sure if this is another of those quirky Saab things but, when I am driving at say around 2000rpm and dip my clutch the revs drop in 2 stages so down to just over 1000rpm then down to standard idle. If higher or lower revs it still drops in 2 stages but to different points on the guage! Any...
  6. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Newbie to Saabscene, but not to forums in general. I've checked the FAQs and sticky posts, and I can't see any topic relating to this. Ive a 9-5 Aero estate, 2001, 185,000 miles on the clock, bless it. This is still a stonkingly good car with an engine that runs like a sewing machine most of...
  7. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Hi Folks, on my way to work today I noticed the ABS kicking in when just slowing to a halt.... i.e. just when you hit about 5 mph, you come to quite an abrupt halt with much rattling of the pedal. Any ideas what to look for? I've just changed the clutch so one strut has been out and some...
  8. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    When I pull off in the morning the car seems to whine. It does not seem to be the engine as I can put it in neutral, roll down the hill and rev the engine which seems great. I usually hear it more when the window is down and I am coming to a stop. Would it be something to do with the...
  9. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    I have got a scraping/grinding kind of noise coming from the front of the 9K at slow speedsina straight line, and at higher speeds on bends when it becomes quicked as if this noise is coming from something that is spinning. My suspicion is ther INNER CV joint needs changing, and possibly my O/S...

  11. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    A wee while ago I posted about break-through windnoise at quite high speeds in my 9-3 coupe... Just posting to say, I got it checked out today whilst the dealer serviced the car and they realigned the door . It's fixed!!!!..no more noise. So, perhaps a quick realignment will sort it out if...
  12. Classic Saab 900 (1979 - 1993)
    Hello, I recently purchased a '93 900 turbo conv. I have had 900's before, but this is my first automatic. I am disturbed by the engine speed at highway speeds, and am wondering if it is normal. At 65, it is turning about 3500+ rpm. It is not a very relaxed ride. Especially since I like to drive...
