  1. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    I have a 93ss 04' 1.8t and in my quest to find my bucking/lurching problem I decided to 'pipe-out' my boost control valve. Basically I've left it plugged in but ive piped the recirc valve straight into the manifold port, bypassing the valve. I've then blocked off the other piper coming from...
  2. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hi chaps Strange thing just started to happen and wonder what the link is. I'm looking at selling my 03 Aero 9-5 auto estate and the gremlins are out to stop me! Drove along the other day and had to make an emergency stop or there'd have been a dead UEA student (rode bike off pavement...
  3. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    As above really folks! It's service time again and I'm a little out of touch. They did say that it's reall a full service aside from fuel filters and something else being replaced... OR - am I just paying a small fortune for some new oil...
  4. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    I've got the old EML on this morning and I strongly suspect the EGR (same issue 4k miles ago). I'm going to try to take it off clean it during my lunch break today. However, I've got an extra whotsit bolted onto the manifold that I haven't seen in the how-to guides I've read here and on uksaabs...
  5. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    What's the best economy you've had on a run? Also, what's your overall average? If enough people enter their figures, we'll hopefully get a realistic picture of fuel economy for the 2.2TiD...
  6. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Another poll for the 2.0LPT What's the best economy you've had on a run? Also, what's your overall average? If enough people enter their figures, we'll hopefully get a realistic picture of fuel economy...
  7. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Just for SuperSwede66 :D What's the best economy you've had on a run? Also, what's your overall average?
  8. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Same as the poll for the 1.9TiD. What's the best economy you've had on a run. Obviously not resetting the SID going down a steep hill at 70mph and measuring for 5 seconds ;) :D Also, what's your overall average? Best for my Aero (Auto Estate) was 36mpg, though that was doing 58mph on the...
  9. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    There must be a better way of doing this, but this is all I can think of that's available on the forum. Really need it to cover all the engines / gearboxes / body styles. Though for now it will hopefully be a useful real world guide / reference of economy of the 1.9TiD. Having said that, this...
  10. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi, Sorry if I'm being epically stupid here ...but... What's the difference between the MAF sensor and a MAP sensor or is there any? I'm just a tad confused as on the site people ref to a MAF sensor and also a MAP sensor while on the vectra-c forum they refer to the MAF as a boost sensor...
  11. Saab Recommendations
    I dropped by Millenium Saab in Charlton, SE London yesterday, and it wasn't there!! Anyone know what's happened? As I've moved nearish to Tunbridge Wells I'll give South East Saab a try (as I see that Rowan is highly recommended on here). Dransfield
  12. Saab Recommendations
    There is a lot of confusion over the two companies which advertise repair of SID units on Saabscene. One is called saabdisplayrepair and the other saabdisplayrepairs (note the 'S'). The first company have just redone their ad. but it still shows saabdisplayrepairs at the top of the ad., at the...
  13. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    You probably get fed up of the "what's it worth" threads, but I've really no idea of it's value now so I'm after some honest opinions. In all honestly, I dont really want to get shot of the car, but as I'm fairly sure a company car is imminent, or a replacement that's diesel is more likely -...
  14. Classic Saab 900 (1979 - 1993)
    OK, having failed to find what I was after the first time round, I have a little more time on my hands. I'm still keen on the C900 but really want this car (or similar) with the full fat 175 bhp motor. I haven't seen any but am curious to know how hard and how much would it cost to swap a 16v...
  15. Help, Advice, Saabs and Motoring
    I am looking at selling my Saab 9-5 2.3 HOT Aero Estate and wondered if I could get an idea from other members what it may be worth? It's a 2004 on a 54 plate, just over 49k miles. Usual Aero spec (not Lux) Superb condition, needs about £200 spending to get a couple of very minor trolley...
  16. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Am I correct in thinking the DPF is heated every so many miles to clear out the rubbish in this filter? If so every how many miles does this occur? I ask because the wife's TiD convertible shudders (this is the whole car shuddering for a period of maybe 5 to 10 seconds) during which performance...
  17. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    I was chatting with some colleagues at work today, about the differences between different brands of petrol. A couple of them said that they've noticed a difference in fuel economy between the fuel they've bought from Tesco and other brands (Tesco's being lower). It's not something I've ever...
  18. Tyres, Wheels, and Brakes
    Hi All, I'll be needing some tyres on my Viggen soon. It's got the standard wheels and tyres - 215/45/17. The reccomendations are for either a Dunlop SP2000 or Pirelli P6000. It has Dunlops on the front, and Bridgestones on the rear at the moment - no problems with either. I've had good...

    I've been looking for a 9-5 Aero for a little while and a friend mentioned that his friend was selling his. It's a 2004 '53' Aero estate auto (paddles), silver, black leather, nav, FSSH, 90k and appears to be in very good condition from the pictures. He's emigrating so needs to sell in the next...
  20. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    OK so I got my first Saab 9-3 Vector Sport 150 on an 06 plate with 27k on the clock in November last year. I've done around 3k miles, mostly on motorway at 75/80. The car has been into the garage 6 times so far for: EGR valve replacement Passenger door seal pushed forward, seal replaced O2...
