    When I start the engine it stutters for 10 to 20 seconds and then goes on normally. What could be the reason for that? Coolant temp sensor and Lambda sensor new. Spark plugs? Waht are the best for the gasoline B204i 93 YS3D yr. 1999 ?

    Hi, Having a problem with my 2003 2.0t petrol. It starts and drives fine but as soon as you put your foot down to accelerate the car judders and has no power. I can accelerate up to motorway speeds fine but have to accelerate gently. The CEL has flashed a few times but remains off. I changed...
  8. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    First post here so sorry if I don't get it quite right. I inherited a Saab 93 recently, 2.0l auto (non-turbo), in march of this year. It's guzzles up a lot of fuel, always has done, but apart from that starts up up fine and runs well most of the time. Since a little more than a month ago it...
  9. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    All, I have been using about 50% BioDiesel for a couple of months on my 9-5 Vector 2.2TiD. After a few weeks, the acceleration was really good, and the car seemed to adapt to my driving with a bit of urgency in the acceleration. Then recently I noticed a stuttering on accerletation, like its...

    Recently brought my 900 conv turbo 1990 back onto the road. At 50mph and 2000revs the engine starts to judder and misfire. Almost the same happens in other gears at 2000 revs. Basically will not allow me to accelerate past these limits. Will be changing fuel filter and coolant temperature...
  11. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Coming home this morning at stupid o'clock the car started stuttering throughout the rev range this has been doing this between 3000 and about 3200 for a while now but now its doing it all the time. The car is fine when under acceleration and when I take my foot off the gas. As a way of...
  12. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Dear all, Apologies for writing if this point has already been covered. My beloved 9-3 has just developed a fault. The car seems to stutter at low revs, (like a bad HT lead on a petrol). This only started yesterday but now my engine warning light has come on. The start up check says that all is...
  13. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    The car doesn't get used all that much because I get a lift to work almost every day. Recently the I have observed the following issues with the car: 1.) Occassional juddery, stuttering start with a fair bit of exhaust smoke. It has settled down by the time I've got to work and ticks over as...

    Re: Stuttering Hi, I've recently started to experience an issue with my 1998 'S' Saab 9-3 2.0 Ecopower Turbo. From cold she runs perfectly, no complaints. However, once she's warm and I go away and leave her for a moment and come back, she starts to stutter on acceleration around 2K revs and...
  17. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Hi all, You may remember my previous posts about a weird "stutter" I am getting under power in my '98 2.3T manual. What happens is, when I accelerate reasonably hard in 4th or 5th, sometimes the engine seems to, well, stutter, for lack of a better word. Boost levels are correct according to...
