    Hello fellow Saab owners and enthusiasts. My "Saab story" begins with a posting on Craig's list here in Las Vegas NV. I was looking for a car with low mileage and a clean interior. With a budget of $3000 I wasn't expecting much and for several weeks I wasn't seeing much either. Either the...
  2. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Hi all We now seem to have starting issues with our rattly old 9000. It’s a 97P CSE 2.0 LPT Auto with .c 130k miles. It will happily turn over but won’t fire up. It appeared to almost catch one but it wouldn’t go. Turning the ignition on starts up the whirring of the fuel pump, so I guess...

  4. Classic Saab 900 (1979 - 1993)
    I have a 1991 Saab Classic 900 16V Turbo. I cant get it to start. Ran fine last year except when laying up for winter that when I put on anything electrical it caused the engine to cut out which I would imagine is possibly due to a faulty alternator and power drain etc. but then my fuel system...

    Hi everyone – cruise by fairly regularly but have never posted, however now sadly I need some help with my old girl.

  7. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hi All, I am currently looking after my Father's '02 9-5 Aero for a few months while he is on an extended holiday. I intend to us it for a fairly lengthy trip next week (1400 miles round trip) and am slightly concerned about taking it as there are one or two worrying signs. Firstly, there...
  8. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    I haven't posted to this forum for a while because I went over to the dark side and bought an Ovlov C70, always fancying a coupe, and expecting the Swedish quality-reliability thing to continue. Erm no. In 6 months the C70 had: - gearbox rebuild (under warranty, phew) - wheel bearing -...
  9. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    MY98 2.2TiD Lots of grief with the starting circuit. Wife gets stranded with the car not starting. Recovery man recovers the car, reckons it's the starter motor, confirmed by being able to bumpstart it off the back of the lorry. Fair enough, so I replace (with assistance and a lot of swearing...
  10. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Conveniently enough I am having problems with the autochanger on my 9-3. The car is less than three years old Leave a CD in overnight, next day it jumps on several tracks.. Even happens now if the CD has just been inserted. When the car went in for some work last week, the dealer has said...
  11. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    The sensor, front nearside was frozen into the swivel member. Its fixing bolt was easily removed but WD4x and various attempts at leverage and twist could not persuede it to budge. It finally snapped off at the top. The offside unit was free enough to remove and inspect...

  16. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    My alarm keeps going off for no reason. Car is just sat on the drive or works car park. No break ins or inclines or rocking. Car can be started, unlocked, locked, nothing seems to make a difference. Waits 10 seconds and then kicks off another 30 seconds of wailing. The only thing that...
