  1. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi all, I was "happily" driving into work this morning along the motorway smooth as can be and had to slow for traffic ahead. From that point until I arrived at work the steering wheel wobbled/shook on acceleration. If not accelerating it's back to smooth. It seemed to come from driver's side...
  2. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hi, "Coolant Level Low" SID came on yesterday, and foolishly I ignored it thinking I had time to look at at it later. Today, on way home, got stuck in the super-heavy traffic for which Reading is justly famed. After about 4 miles of continuous jam and stop-start driving the temp gauge is near...

    I had a massive problem with my 2002MY 9-5 Aero HOT. I was driving this evening and suddenly the engine cut out and the engine failure light came on. I managed to get the car going again but only by keeping the revs above around 1200rpm. Anytime the revs went below that, the engine would cut...
  5. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hello there, neophyte here wondering if you fellows could help me out a bit. Story: I set my alarm like I always do, and went in my home. Hours later, into the night, my alarm goes off. I go out, shut it down with my remote key and stared around the dark, thinking someone tried to open the door...
  6. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    I've recently been having problems with a sudden and severe drop in RPM while driving or when at a standstill. The car loses 500-1000 RPM without any warning, maybe once a day. This happens sometimes at idle with no issues, but the car has stalled a couple of times when at lights. It can also...
  7. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hi folks, have trawled through old posts all day and can't seem to find a definitive answer - maybe there isn't one! ACC stopped working last week, found blown fuse under the bonnet...replaced, back to normal! Ice cold last night, and not working this morning. All fuses (two in car, one...

    A couple of weeks back on a trip up to Liverpool I accidentally filled my 9-3 estate up with Shell V-power diesel rather than standard diesel. A bit annoyed with spending ten quid more than I needed to on a tank of fuel I carried on my way. Ever since doing this my car has been returning on...
  9. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Coming off a 2 hr motorway run the gearbox crunched on the changedown for the first set of lights I came to and then would not budge from neutral. Pitch black and raining, I stuck my finger into the fluid reservoir and found it was down to almost empty. Walked to a garage got some fluid and...

  11. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hi folks first post so here goes: I have a 2006 "Dame Edna" 9-5 19td which has just let go of its DMF at 49000 miles. I have just picked the car up 5pm today following repair; clutch feels good all the rattles/vibrations having disappeared. However I have suffered a total loss of engine power...
  12. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hi guys! My car just passed MOT but my happiness did not last long - I noticed an increase in petrol consumption in my 9-5 Aero Estate Auto. Steady 70 mph on a motorway with cruise control on used to be around 39 mpg (7.2 l/100km) but now it's around 32-33 MPG (8.6 l/100km). Firstly I blamed...
  13. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    It worked fine on my way out, but not at all on the way home again! So I took it to my local dealership who had offered me a full aircon service for £90 at my last service, although I didn't have the money at the time. They still did the service for the £90 but two pipes had corroded and that...

    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...
  15. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    I had a strange event today. Driving at around 60, straight road - warmed-up, suddenly the engine dies, and all the instuments as well. As if I've switched off the ignition, but of course I hadn't. Switched the ignition off and on again, still no power. (car slowing) switched it off for longer...

    MY03 auto estate. Quite suddenly this morning I noticed a rumbling coming from the front nearside, and quite a bit of harshness from the steering wheel. As luck would have it I was only a few hundred yards from work so drove on and got out expecting to see a flat tyre. However it wasn't...

  18. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Today I started up my 2007 Saab 9-3. It normally starts up right away with no problems. Today when it started the engine was running very rough and had a lot of vibrations. After abuot 10 seconds the RPM died down and the engine eventually quit. I started it up again to find the same...
