    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...

    Hi My 2007 2.0T Aero SW developed a strange issue this weekend which appears to have fixed itself. On Saturday I went out, car started fine. Drove to my destination which was about 15mins. Left the car for about 20 minutes and when I came back and started it, it started and then immediately...

    Hey guys, Ive had three separate tunes from different vendors and they all stall the car. I thought it was a software issue but now im thinking its something mechanical . I put 15 miles on the latest one before the car simply stalled out and wouldnt start again. The car stalled as I was...

  7. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi There. My 9-3 has developed an annoying habit of stalling when hot. Heres the scenario. Engine fires up straight away. No hesitation. If I drive for 20 mins and then come to a set of traffic lights for example sometimes the revs fall well below 1000 and it either idles very lumpy or stalls...

  9. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Hello, just today I had my 2002 Saab 9-3 SE stall on me while driving. What happened was that as I was accelerating (~3000rpm), I heard a misfire and the revs quickly dropped down and the engine stalled. At this point, I attempted to start the car again, only to have the engine unable to hold...
  10. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    The car idles erratic and when coming to a stop or near stop it stalls quite often. No engine management light just the oil light that comes on briefly before it stalls. I've read quite a few posts about cleaning the IAC but I think this might be part of the throttle body on mine as I can't...
  11. Classic Saab 900 (1979 - 1993)
    My 1991 9000 (auto trans) (stock everything, no tuning, has pod filter) won't keep running for long. I can non longer take it out for drives as it just randomly stalls all the time!!! I'm driving along normally doing 50kmph and then out of the blue the car shudders/jolts, the rev counter is...
  12. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hey all, I have a manual 2.0t 2008 Sports Sedan and I absolutely love it. Haven't encountered any problems but something strange has been happening. Lately, i notice the RPMs seem to be dipping below normal RPM levels when coming to a stop. When the car is in idle, it hovers about 800 RPM (not...

    Hey there, Just bought a 2000 9 3 Base with high km... but drives great. If I really rock the car and go all out, if I come to a stop soon after the car dies and wont restart. After playing around... the only way I can get it to start and drive again is to remove the neg battery terminal and...
  14. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    9-5 Aero estate 90k miles auto petrol 2002. Car runs well but if you tick over for any length of time it will cough & stall and will not start for at least a couple of hours. Similarly if you take a short or long journey it runs very smooth but if you stop it will not then start. Any thought...
  15. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi, I'm hoping I can get some advice from you guys, as I'm at a bit of a loss. I'm from Aberdeen, Scotland, and sadly our local Saab dealer has closed down so the nearest is about 80 miles away and I've been having a problem. When the car slows and freewheels round a corner, ie without the...
  16. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Hi, Have a V plate 1999 2.0 9-3 vert which started to slightly hesitate under light acceleration (or rather throttle lift off and then light re-apply) in 5th on motorway -didn't think much of it to start with -just thought maybe revs were a little low and maybe I should have changed down! Like...

    I just bought a 2001 2.3t 9-5 Saab with a few problems and I'm having some difficulty figuring them out so any help would be greatly appreciated. Symptoms are as follows: After warming up, when at idle or coming to a stop the oil light will flicker and the car will die silently. Gets worse the...
  20. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    I have a 2001 93 lpt. Couple of weeks ago the A/C compressor started making a horrific noise. Took it to local mechanic who confirmed I need to replace it. I left the car with him while I source a replacement as his quote for the part was quite expensive. Yesterday he called for me to collect...
