  1. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Transmission Issues Hey scene I just picked up a 2003 Saab 9-3 a month ago and I am having a strange issue after fixing what I thought was just a bad input speed sensor on the trans. After I replaced the input sensor and cleared the codes she drove normal for about 20 minutes around some back...
  2. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    I have a 2000 93 SE conv. I have some odd intermittent electrical faults. The sound of the indicators will stop working for a while. The dashboard (green lights) for the indicators will stop working - but the indicators themselves still work. The radio will suddenly stop working and the SID will...
  3. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    I was wondering if I can get the symptoms for a bad CIM, a bad ISM and a bad ECU. Trying to get my 9-3 going but need to figure out what's wrong.
  4. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    I hope I can explain this well and If there's already a thread I apologize. my 2003 9-3 conv was running fine and then suddenly lost power intermittently, then went from running OK but rough for a few seconds to could barely keep it idling by feathering the gas with the following odd symptoms...
  5. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    2.2 TiD @ 80,000 miles and absolutely no history of any engine issues. The CEL came on unexpectedly at the beginning of a long drive today. There are no symptoms of anything at all. No performance loss and no other warning lights. The only coincidental factor was the fact that I filled the...
  6. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Hi, Im fairly new to Saabs, but very happy with my yr2000 9-3 SE HPT, it's been trouble free for 30k (now at 110k) I have recently developed a misfire on cyl 2 which goes away under high boost / high revs. At tick over or up to 2-3k rpm it's only running on 3 cylinders. Does this sound like a...
  7. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Just thought I would add my experience for the benefit of anyone with similar symptoms. I know there have been lots of posts on this but it's not always easy to find one when you need it! Aero Estate 2002 facelift (250) just crossed the magic 100,000 mile mark! ( Bought a SID refurb. to...

  9. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Hi all, I have searched the Forum but not identified a definitive indication of what symptoms you would get if your dump valve was failing. Can someone advise on what would happen if the dump valve started to fail, and also totally failed! Would a failing dump valve cause rough running (worse...
  10. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Just to let everyone know... ACC fan would blow intermitently. Main dealer and posts on here suggested that usual signs of fan speed controller failure was for the fan to blow full and hot - sometimes requiring the fuse to be pulled in order to stop. Mine just did not do that so I suspected bad...
  11. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    I have 1998 9-5, recently the steering wheel has started vibrating on and off. I can figured out that it occurs only when there is slight change in the engine noise (engine noise increases). The car runs well otherwise and there is no vibration while driving but only when it is stand still...
  12. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    The single sensor that sits into the exhaust shortly after it (the exhaust) leaves the turbo on a 1998 9-5 2.0 I assume this is the Oxygen Sensor? It has four wires going into it. If this sensor would fail, what would the symptoms be? Heavy fuel consumption? Reason i asked is because i...
  13. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Hello I am wondering how I can fix two problems pertaining to electrical system on my car. Most importantly my cars electrical system is very erratic and sometimes the A/C and dash controls turn off and don't work and then suddenly come back on. Meanwhile my headlights will flicker from bright...
