  1. Previous model ranges, FOR SALE and WANTED
    Welcome to the reluctant sale of my beloved 1991 Saab 900S 5 door LPT. I took it off the road last year with the intention of restoring it but due to recent health issues forcing me to give up my job I'm unfortunately no longer able to go through with it so I'm searching for a loving new home...
  2. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    So probably for about 2 weeks now I've had this issue on start up. If I let it idle for too long, the engine will stop. It also did shake on startup the first few times it started doing this for about 15 seconds. After running for about 2 minutes, the smoke does not continue to expel. I am not...

    Sorry if this is the wrong forum or if this has been posted before, I haven't found any posts that answer my question I found two 2008 Saab 9-3 Aeros (GCC spec) and one has a photo of under the hood and the engine says SAAB turbo, but neither have a boost gauge inside. I noticed that images of...

    Hello Everyone, My 2007 Aero Convertable's rear view mirror is losing it's silvering around the edge, and whilst this doesn't effect the view rearwards clarity wise, it does look a bit tatty. Recently I had cause to visit a SAAB recycler for a battery cover and found Auto dimming mirrors of the...

  14. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi all My ttid only boosts to middle of the gauge now and is missing power like the big turbo is being bypassed. No obvious leaks so my best guess at the moment is the boost control solenoid for the big turbo is not working, meaning the waste gate is open (by default)? Question is which of the...
  15. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Just become the owner of a high mileage 1991 2.3 Carlsson manual gearbox with TCS. When I got it the turbo was burning a little oil but still boosted OK.....I've had it a week and last night the boost stopped wont go beyond the yellow and is as flat as the perverbial...

  17. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    I just bought a 96 2.0 CSE, and after having it for 2 days, the turbo has gone out. The car drives fine, albeit a little sluggish, but other than that, there are no indications of a problem. The boost gauge is inop, so that doesn't help. Any suggestions on trouble shooting this? Thanks.

  20. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    My 96 Aero ( manual ) has started to make a sort of high pitched screech when i start to accelerate hard and am well in boost. I am certain that the noise is from the Turbo and it sounds more like an air leak than anything mechanical. The car still feels fit and i cant see any loose pipes after...
