  1. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    My 99 Saab 9-3 has been making a whining noise when I'm in second gear, when I push the clutch in it disappears. It only does it in second gear and has gotten noticeably louder in the last few days. Does anyone know what this might be and if it's something serious? Thank you.

    Hi. I recently had my water pump and associated chain replaced at an independent garage. They did something incorrect with balancer shafts and whole car shook, although they corrected the problem so that's good. However, now I have noticed a whining sound that seems to be associated with when...

    My 9-3 (2008 Aero TTID Estate, 120k miles) has acquired a whine. Seems to be coming from the front left (passenger side) wheel. It doesn't vary when turning left of right, doesn't change according to the gear I'm in, happens even in neutral, doesn't change if I'm accelerating or slowing down...
  4. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Hi, I own a 1988 Saab 9000 turbo and since I bought the car I have been hearing a whirring noise. It usually only starts once the cars warmed up and doesn't matter what hear I'm in or even sitting idle, I hear a loud persistant whining noise from the drivers seat. I popped the hood and can't...

    Hi guys, Thought i'd open this to the forum for help. I recently acquired a lovely 1999 9-5 with 136k on the clock. I bought it from a guy who had not used it for over a year, but it has a FSH every 6-10k. Some of the services (over 50%) have been using semi synthetic oil. When i viewed it...

    Hi, I have a 2004 9-3 SS and I just installed the Maptun Stage 1 upgrade. Since installing it the turbo now whines when its really going, its obviously a result of the increased boost, but my question is, is this normal? The car has only done 50,000 miles, I have been running it on V-power for...

    Hi all, hoping someone can shed a bit of light, my power steering has ben whining/screeching for a few weeks now. However two days ago the steering became very heavy upon turning right, turning left is still nice and easy, turning right is almost like having no power steering at all. The noise...

    Hi guys, I seem to remember reading something about a similar problem but struggling to find it in my hour of need. I have just changed the turbo and cobra pipe and now its all back together the car is whining under boost plus the boost needle only just gets to the yellow where it used to go...

  12. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Started yesterday, a sort of moan/whine when moving the steering off centre. On full lock, either direction, quite loud with a bit of a shudder. Not very loud at the moment. I'm obviously thinking drive belt & pulleys. I've tried to see anything amiss but quite frankly it's almost impossible to...

    Todays problem with my 2.2 TiD, along with the hesitation at 1800rpm is a whining noise when coming off the throttle, I fear it's the turbo starting to implode, anyone else have/had similar symptoms?
  15. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    I nearly always hear a whining sound when the engine is cold. The sump was dropped and the strainer checked/cleaned and the latest pcv upgrade was done earlier this year. It happens at about slightly over 1000rpm. Could the turbo be speeding up at this speed? James.

    Hi All, I'm new to this so please bear with me! My 2001 9-5 2.0t has developed a whining noise when cold - it dissapears after a few miles and all seems fine then. Sometimes it is only there for a few seconds but other times it last longer. It is there from starting the engine - when...
  17. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hi i got a problem well more annoying than problem at the mo. I got a whining sound from nearside front (UK) i thought it was the wheel bearing as this sounded rough anyway so replaced that but still whining is there. Its speed related rather than rev related, so would this be the diff on the...
