  1. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    I have a 2004 saab 93, 2.0 T, 199xxx miles. The other day i took it thru a automatic carwash and parked it. An hour later I tried to start it, it would barely run as if running out of gas, and the power steering was completely gone. It would not steer, or even accelerate. A friend Honda mechanic...
  2. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    hi, I've finally got my beauty boosting a good half way into the red in both first and second with LOADS of power... :thumbsup: If however one were to be sitting at 3000 rpm in 3rd and apply the lead boot she boosts to the top of the red for a second or so then 'back fires or judders' before...
  3. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hi, just got my first saab a week ago. 9-5 Areo estate 2001, but the new 250hp model. Love it. However, on occasion, when I turn off the ignition there is a wierd vibration/shiver/rumble from the front end. Its sounds as if it is something automatic squeezing on, like an automatic brake or...

    Hi. My power steering behaving strangely. It feels weak and heavy but still working. Especially feels harder to turn at low speeds. As I turn the wheel, it feels light enough but then quickly gets a bit harder to turn. The feeling of responsiveness is strange as if you think the car is not...

    We’ve all seen the photo of the Saab drag racer….and the silver 99 EMS photoshopped to look like a boat. I hosted some wierd Saab photos not so long ago, but Saabrobz has discovered a treasure trove of eccentric Saabists over at saabnet.ee. Our recently-dicovered Saab 9-5 hearse is there...
  6. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Hi, have been experiencing an odd handling issue that can best be described as the same sensation you get when wider tyres tramline or track imperfections in the road surface. Now the car has the Abbott Racing sports springs, some poly bushes (especially the wishbone versions) with Koni Sports...
  7. Saabscene: Performance
    OK this problem has only happened once, but I am sure I didnt imagine it!! I have an old-school 9-3 SE (185bhp) turbo, 2002 model. I was out driving on Tuesday night, and was running the car reasonably hard (not going crazy), but i did accelerate to redline in third a few times when on the...
  8. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Got an odd one on my brothers L reg 9000. Sometimes it wont start - everything is lit up and battery voltage shows about 11.6. Turn the ignition to start and nothing happens - no clicks from the starter, no change in the voltage, no dimming of the lights. To get it to start you need to jump...
  9. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Sometimes my ACC just sticks on OFF - all the other buttons are useless, just sits there on OFF, obviously theres no fan blowing air around, no heated rear screen, no blowers, nothing. Then all of a sudden it will come to life, working perfectly, allowing me to do the calibration check (with 0...

  11. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Whilst out today I can hear a really low volume rapid fluttering noise from somewhere under the bonnet. Much more noticeable at low speed but probably this is due to low volume. Performance seems ok (9-5 aero) but I wondered if anyone could shed any light. I can't pinpoint it with the bonnet up...

    Hi everyone. I've recently completed my head gasket job on my car, so I'm trying to get it ready for the road again. After first cranking it up it was running great. I took it out on the roads and it had excellent response lower rpms (didn't take it higher than 3). The previous head gasket...

  14. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Morning all, Have a bit of a problem with my ACC unit at the moment: When I set to temperature to 'LO' and have the air directed through the dashboard vents (not the windscreen ones) there is a mechanical clicking sound coming from inside the dashboard. But at any other temperature/air...

    Hi guys, new round here, but been looking in for a few months. Now, I have a strange electrical (I think) fault that started last night. When I touch the brake pedal... the side lights and dash lights come on. (So people think I am flashing them!) and... If the lights are on - the brake...

    Hi Everyone, I posted a few days ago about an erratic idle problem and a random check engine light I keep getting. Today I have had two extra problems that are just plain wierd. 1) After travelling in traffic for a while I stopped at tesco's for a bit of shopping, came back and the car wouldnt...

    I have a 1993 Saab 9000 CSE 2.0 (non-turbo) and on the very top of the engine head at the rear, their is a funny connector at the top with two small pipes attached to it? Does anyone know what this does. I have had a look at my EPC and the closest thing I can find is described as a "Positive...
