    Hey everyone let me start by saying I don't post here very often but I'm always here getting tips on how to fix my Saab. Many thanks for the resident pros for the wealth of info. So a few months ago my 03 9-3 Arc sedan started having the engine light come on and going into limp mode. Put a...

    I say "sound", but if I'm honest, it's a noise. And it doesn't sound like a good noise, either. My 9000 CSE Anniversary 2.3 FPT has started making a bad sort of rattling sound in the engine bay. Here's a video of the engine, with the noise. I duck into the car to turn of the air conditioning in...

    My 9-5 blew its turbo the other month and has been fixed and running OK since. However I have noticed that my fuel consumption has risen alarmingly since the new turbo has been fitted. I've checked with the on-board system and its claiming to be running at 25 mpg for all my running which is way...

    I need pics and arrows. LOL. I have a 1999 93 and the belt started whining bad. I attempted to limp home before it broke and it the belt came off on the way. I pulled over but the engine had already heated up and coolant came out. It seems like it is from either the water pump or , and I think...

    I have a 2004 9-3 that I have not driven for several weeks. The key fob does not unlock it. I have replaced the battery and still doesn't work. I think I need to open the car with the manual key and put the key fob in the console so that it re-syncs. I know when I open the car with the manual...

    Hi I've had problems starting my diesel 150 93 for a while now (like a few other people). I changed the glow plugs but this made no difference so I just lived with the problem of it taking a long time to start when cold. However on Tuesday of this week it only just started, the battery was only...

    I have a whine from the engine bay. Started a couple of weeks ago. It comes from the front of the engine when you stand with the bonnet up. I think this is where the turbo is? It can be heard from inside when driving around town. Seems to disappear at motorway speeds but maybe just because...
