  1. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    So I just put in a new AIC and started the car , and to my dismay the car started idling from 1500 to 3000 rpms up and down as if I was adding throttle. I noticed that the original unit had been installed with the arrow on the AIC facing down, Contrary to what I read online about installation...

    Hello. Have a 2005 120 bhp with 150k on the clock. Has been remapped. When I drive you can feel the car surging also ever now and then you will get a miss. Sometime first thing in the morning it will take a couple of attempts to start. I have replaced the map. Cleaned the egr and maf. I...
  4. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi Guys, I went through a lot of threads describing idling problems but found none similar to mine. When the car is idling the rpm is holding steady close to 800rpm most of the time but sometimes (randomly) it surges to about 1100rpm and drops back. It is just like someone touched the throttle...
  5. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    hi guys recently i have been experiencing some boost related niggles, thought i would get some advice here before i go trying to remove bits of a 16 year old original turbo (everything is going to be fused together by now). firstly, i have been experiencing some boost surge and the obligatory...
  6. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Help. This is my first time here; I have a 2004 Saab 9-5 2.2 automatic diesel Vectra estate 120,000 miles. When I bought the car it had a minor fluffing sound between 1500 & 2000 revs, only under load, if you put your foot down it would drive through it, I believe it’s called boost compressor...

    Hello, thanks in advance. We have a 9-3 2001 with a 2.0 motor - We though the turbo was going bad due to a surging we were getting at idle and during cruise. replaced and it still doing same surge. It was doing bad at idle, the boost gauge was going between 0 to just below red then idle smooth...

    Hi i'm new to this, but I've just bought my 1st SAAB 95 on a late 2005 plate (new shape) 2.3Ltr turbo which has so far completed 105k miles (Full service history+ 1 careful owner) and I'm very pleased with it, but this little problem is bugging me. When the car is on the motorway or just...

  11. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi all, First post on this site so hi to all. :) Straight in with a question....not sure if anyone else has experienced this or knows what it is? Just had a main service and have noticed since the car tends to 'surge' ever so slightly when cruising (at any speed) - noticable mostly around...
  12. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    I bought a '01 9-3 SE a couple of months ago, and aside from a minor things it's ran great until about a month ago when it started doing this surging thing. The turgo gauge is really the only thing that moves when the car does this. It goes between the normal range to way down low to just inside...

  14. Classic Saab 900 (1979 - 1993)
    Hi, Just got a C900 1988 2 litre 16V Turbo. Engine sweet, 63K only. However,I am still running a Manual Gearbox 2.3 FPT 9000 2.3, Abbott remapped ECU, Bleed, Dump Valves etc. The performance on this 9000 is awesome. When flooring it, its powerfull turbo kick is much better than a kickdown...
  15. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    I took my aero on a 200 mile trip today and used the turbo sparingly on some overtaking in 3rd and 4th, it was running excellent, but suddenly when i arrived back home, i had lost turbo surge ? The boost gauge was still registering ok up to orange red area but there was no kick into the seat...
