  1. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    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...

    An ebay item 2006 9-5 Aero has the above fault It appears to run well for approx 15/20 mins before trouble arises. Stutters quite badly and usually stalls then wait till it goes cold again before starting. Any ideas on what this might be ? Looks quite clean for its age so was thinking of...
  3. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hello, hopefully one of you can point me in the right direction, recently bought a Saab 1.9 tid 150 vector sport and it's been a lovely car for about a month and since then been an absolute pig, I've had a dig around the forums to get help but still no joy. Around 1500-2000rpm I'm getting a...
  4. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    So after a period of good behaviour, my dads Saab 9-3 (55 plate 9-3 linear sportwagon 150 TiD manual) has decided to throw some more tantrums Had it into saab for latest ECM update that seemingly was meant to help with DPF regens Fine for a week or 2 after that, however it has started randomly...
  5. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Hello, I was so stoked when I found this forum and read the thread about my exact problem and the fix was so almost simple. Alas, my wife's midlife crisis car has no IAC valve to clean. Am I left with a bad computer or a blowed-up manual transmission as my only outcomes? Any guidance would be...
  6. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Now that the weather is so cold, my 1999 9-3, auto trans. will shudder and stall when first started. It only does it when stone cold on a cold day (roughly below 35 degrees F). It starts just fine and when shifted into reverse or drive, or from reverse to drive, shudders and stalls. It's like...
  7. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hello fellow members! As mentioned in post title... in recent week my saab developed a symptom: Car always starts normally - cold - first start / no cranking etc... - sometimes / right after start RPM drops suddenly and comes back to idle RPM - sometimes / right after start RPM drops suddenly...
  8. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    I just replaced the turbo on my 2000 Saab 9-5 2.3t. I got it running and burned off all the oil and what-not. After running it for about 40 minutes it decided to start stalling. When I start it up it sounds great but stalls out at the 10 second mark. Could this be a vacuum issue? Throttle body...
  9. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hello... long time listener, first time caller. I have an '02 Saab 9-5 2.3t that drives and runs perfectly except for one thing: when I go to start the car after it has sitting for thirty minutes or so and has been driven and is warmed up, it tends to immediately die once or twice (sometimes...
  10. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Ok...so, 2003 Saab 9-5 Linear. Car starts but stalls shortly thereafter. After initial cold start in which the car will run for maybe 30 seconds, upon subsequent restart attempts it'll start and run for shorter and shorter periods of time until it refuses to start at all. Originally I posted...
  11. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    My 1996 Saab 900SE non-turbo runs fine until I park for, say, an hour. The car will stall and/or sputter for the first 5 min on the road, then it runs fine. This is terrible if I'm in town driving at low speeds and frequent stops. This is a new problem for me. Could it be the CPS, the...
  12. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    I have a 99' Saab 9-3 SE with 162,000 miles on it. I bought it as a 2nd vehicle. Cosmetically it looks/feels like a 70k mile car. Mechanically it's seemingly decent. I bought it about 5 weeks ago. I haven't driven since then. I occasionally start it to keep the battery charged, but haven't...
  13. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hi My 9-5 2.0 has a habit of stalling and refusing to start. The check engine light also comes on. The engine will not fire again until I have disconnected and reconnected the battery. Any body got any suggestions.
  14. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hi All, I have a problem that I just can't seem to fix and would be very grateful if any one has any ideas as to how to fix this. I have a Saab 9-5 Aero year 2000. When I start the car from cold it idles fine for about 20 seconds. After that the revs go up and down until it finally dies. When I...
  15. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hi Not been on here for a while but tjhat's the beauty of Saabs. Nothing has gone wrong so I've been quiet. That and I now use it for commuting again. Anyway, a couple of times (2 max) the car has stalled on me. First I know about it is when the power steering and brakes go. It first happened...

    Hi, I'm really miffed on this but when the wife brakes suddenly and the car comes to a stop it stalls on her, whereas i try not to stop as sudden as she does... What could be causing the car to stall? Recently changed turbo (full sump clean so engine service & sparks changed), a New battery...
  17. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    1987 9000s automatic When I start the car in the morning (or anytime it has been sitting for a few hours), it will almost always stall once or twice when I shift to D or R unless I hit the gas and accelerate quickly. Before stalling, it will rev unnecessarily up and down, almost stalling, then...
  18. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Hi there Ive been trying to sort it out to no avail. My 2.3t `93 (jetronic) manual behaves (and always have so since with me) strangely. After hard accelerating and clutching the engine stalls if you don`t engage a gear in time. Interestingly if you accelerate slowly and engage the clutch the...
  19. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Driving home this evening the engine light came on on my W reg 93 and the car stopped. When I turn the ignition on the little engine picture lights up and there is a clicking from behind the dash (actually it seems to come from the engine bay). There seem to be about 5 clicks. If I try to...
  20. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Thanks to everyone who helped with advice, and I am now the proud owner of a 2000 model with 73k on the clock. I've now had the car a few days and it runs really well, very quiet, lots of power and a good all round driving experience. Only tonight, I needed to stop quickly (not quite an...
