    It’s OK if you’re not an automotive engineer. Of course, if you are, this probably isn’t for you because here are 10 basic things every motorist should be able to do. How many of them are you capable of? Read more >>

    I now have what appears to be engine oil all over the bottom of the car and the driveway (low level warning light too). Any ideas where it's coming from given that it's not just on the ground but the covers/exhaust etc below the engine are covered in oil as well - as though it's been sprayed...

    Saab USA have an ad budget of around 55 million a year. I don’t know how much Saab Netherlands are spending on Margreet, but I’d wager the campaign would be costing in the tens of thousands. Various jurisdictions are spending money on promoting the brand and getting it exposure, which is a...
  4. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Just been down to Bude for the weekend. Couple of odd things that happened: Once or twice when I was powering up some of the hills I'd feel the boost on the engine seem to back off - there wasn't any sign of overboost or over fuelling, the engine just seemed to back off faster than I'd expect...

    Hi guys My son owns a 92 CS Carlsson and he is having real problems with his cruise control. He recently had it to my local indie who had to use both the ISAT and Tech2 tools to be able to interogate the ECU. Anyway what is happening is this: If all fault codes are cleared the cruise control...

    Not sure if this has been covered, but i was wondering what improvements would you like to see implimented either in newer models, as an upgrade or software enhancement? I think it would be very useful if, when you engaged reverse, your CD would automicaly mute (or reduce) volume, so you can...

    Things I'm not sure I'd do to a Sonett - part 1 I'm not sure that I'd take a classic and quite rare Sonett II, remove the rear window and paint pink racing stripes on it. Then again if my name was Rebecca then maybe the pink stripes wouldn't be so bad... Thanks to Randall for the pics...
  8. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Really chuffed - I have been using the quidco.com web site for a year now and made some great savings. Just insured my standard 9.3 with TSB Lloyds for what I think is an unbelievable £75 fully comp. (£195 - £120 discount). It is well worth having a look if you like to grab a bargain. :smile...

    Top ten things not to say in my Aero... 1. Can I drive? 2. Sometimes I think you love this car more than me... well..do you? 3. What's that squeak/rattle/ping/ticking noise? 4. Why can't we get a newer / smaller car? 5. Slow down! 6. Can we take the dog? 7. 8. 9. 10.
  10. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Firstly I would like advise from anyone who know how the cetral locking system works, I have an aftermarket remote kit to fit on the car, it asked if the car is posative or negatively fead. Secondly and very much more technical, does anyone know which wire and it's easiest location to the check...

    Hi all. As you have seen I have never had a SAAB before, had a Volvo S60 and then my previous Isuzu Bighorn Jap import. I now have an S reg Saab 9-3 2.0iS 5 door hatchback. I have to say, I love it, its confortable, smoothe on the bumps, handles nice, generally a nice car. I got mine with...
  13. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    30 mins ago I got home to find the in dash cup holder I'd ordered, sitting on the doorstep. It is now fitted & I'm really chuffed with it. The main reason for getting it was to hold my PDA with TomTom sat nav & it's a perfect fit. Whilst the dash was out, I've managed to hide the GPS receiver...

    What a week, my washers were leaking which i thought was the pump. I changed the pump all ok until the next day the water was scooting out of the n/s headlamp washer. That stupid little T piece with the valve has started leaking now!. Then i go for a run to hear a grinding noise from the brakes...

    Which are the correct spark plugs for 2000 Aero? NGK PFR7H-10, platinum ones? Also, anyone know the socket size to extract the plugs? My usual plug socket just doesn't fit in the gap around the plug. I'm checking the plugs condition and gaps as a starter to see if I can establish a reason for...

    I bought my 03 9-3 aero second hand from a saab dealer back in august, I've noticed a few niggles...its done 14,000 miles; the service isnt due till 18,000...but I think I've decided to take it in to get the problems fixed. Thought I'd run things past you guys so I know where I stand. 1) The...
