  1. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Twice now, months apart, I have started the old girl only to see big clouds of white smoke passing me by. Turned it off and restarted and no smoke. The car is running fine at the moment and because it is clear on restart, am I right in thinking that this is electrical ? Haven't checked for...

    Mario P recently sent me through a few pics from the Vienna Motor Show and it seems Saab are deliberately pushing those beautiful white cabriolets that we all lusted after when the first official 08 convertible shots came out of Australia late last year. One might have thought that Lynx Yellow...

    Hi forum, I have had the CEL light problem for last 2 months- 2001 Saab9-3 2.0 LPT, 93k miles. This was switched off by an independant garage using Reflex diagnostic unit and was advised to come back if it came on again (cost was about £40 to diagnose and switch off). There was no change in...

  13. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hi I occasionally get white smoke (can see it hanging in the road in the rear view mirror) and I think a very slight power loss/hesitation on hard acceleration. Car is 9 5 Aero MY02. Most of the time it's fine, but sometimes booting it gives the above symptoms. No smoke on tickover or cold...
  14. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Just took my poorly 2.3lpt MY01 estate in to the garage due to white smoke on start up (but only when cold) and loss/replenished 1/2 to 3/4 of a litre of coolant over the last 1500 - 2000 miles. The car was in for a 78k service before Xmas and I had noticed the loss of coolant before so asked...

    When my 9-5 3.0 TiD starts from cold - very cold i.e. less than say 5 degrees, during the warming up phase loads of white (stinking) smoke comes from a small exhaust / blow pipe located adjacent to the passenger side front end. It almost looks like some kind of engine pre-heating type system...

    Just took my car into Reading Saab to get a Break Glass Sensor fitted that had been ordered after my service last week when they didn't have any in stock. While it was being fitted, the mechanic had it idling for a while to try and diagnose an air-con noise, and noticed that there was an...
  19. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    To add the the ever increasing list of "things to do" it would appear that my 2.3lpt is suffering some rather classic symptoms of head gasket failure. A litre or so of oil in 2000 miles, some water useage and some blobs of white goo on the dipstick and on the filler tube. The filler I could...
