  1. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    I've had this problem a few times this winter and only today did it strike me that it is temperature related. Up to now I had assumed it was a blocked DPF and a combination of fuel cleaner and hard driving had been clearing it. However today, the temp was 1 - 2 degrees and straight away light...
  2. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi, Had a look through the forum but cant seem to find anything that matches my current issue...:confused: Had the car for about 6 months now and up until about 3 weeks ago its been spot on, no immediate issues and all that. The Issue being that when I start the car on idle about 10 seconds...
  3. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Now its colder weather my saab 9-3 is becoming a little harder to start, 5-10 seconds of cranking sounds like the battery starting to drain then finally it starts, Had the p0380 code come on through the summer/autumn months and cleared it with my hand held diag, but in this cold weather am not...
  4. Classic Saab 900 (1979 - 1993)
    Hi! I've been dabbling with my Saab 900i 16V -92 (OG) (fuel injection) that has problems when starting when there is (plenty of) humidity under the hood. On clear and dry weather the engine runs very smoothly. It has gone through some sort of tester at a car repair shop on dry weather, but...
  5. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    I've always put Pirelli p6000s on my 95 (1999 2.3LPT SE) estate, but the grip is shocking, especially in winter. I don't want the hassle or expense of buying proper winter tyres and swapping them each season and the snow in the Isle of Man rarely warrants it. So I've been looking at tyres with...
  6. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi guys, Just wondering how vital it is to weather proof a convertible hood ? When I asked the dealer about treating it when I bought it they said do nothing, just keep it clean ?? Have to say after all this heavy rain the last three days it 'snot like it lets anything through ? so they could...

  8. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    With more imminent weather and the prospect of more cold bum on leather seat, I decided after 3 years of no heat, enough was enough - I tackled the driver's seat on the Anniversary to fix the heat pad. Using the usual forum info (have to say, Saabnet was particularly useful), I found a break in...

    I'm unsure as to which of us is nuts, but... During frosty weather, the bloke opposite is in the habit of following this process... 1. Go out to his and wife's cars, parked on public road 2. Start both cars. 3. Lock cars 4. Go indoors (OPTIONALLY : stand in street having a shouted conversation...
  10. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    I've read a few posts about folks having problems with their brakes during this cold snap. This has been my experience- I went to set off the other morning but could only go forward with difficulty- I thought I'd left the handbrake on but hadn't (funnily enough, I could reverse ok but not go...
  11. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Perfect weather here in the South for removing those wheel liners and if your car is more than 8 years old and you intend to keep it, then it might be worth checking for the start of corrosion around the rear wheel arches. If you can see some bubbling under the black trim, then best not delay...
  12. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Has anyone else experienced these symptoms please ? We use our 9-5 3.0 tid Vector manual for towing a 1500kg caravan, which it does very well most of the time - prob 7k miles pa since 2005. A couple of times when towing hard in hot weather - at or above 30 degrees C - the engine has overheated...
  13. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi Everyone, I think this is normal, but just wanted to check... I'm averaging about 30mph over my 23 mile trip to work at the moment, with temperatures ranging from -13 to -5 and the car never warms up. It floats between cold and a quarter above cold... Now, I presume that this is because...
  14. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)

  17. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hello, I drive MY'01 2.0t sedan and now have noticed that in the mornings at colder weather there is coming clunking sound from the rear right side of the car. I have already checked all possible bolts and nuts, even schock absorber was removed and inspected for loose parts. The last time I have...
  18. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi All, Since I got my used 2004 9-3, its had a niggly problem with the drivers window. When closing it, the glass rotates forward slightly so the trailing edge clears the B pillar, then at the top of the apex, it is pushed back into the correct position. However, as this happens, it traps the...
  19. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    I have a 2001 Saab 95 3.0 V6 TID. For the past couple of years it has proven difficult to start whenever the outside temperature iss 5 degC or less, and the car has been parked overnight. This problem has got even worse each year. If I try and start the car with no throttle it takes many...
