    Hi, hoping someone can help me. I had EML come on a week or so a go, Exhaust Gas Flow error. It drove fine, so i cleared the error and it never came back. I decided to take the EGR off this weekend and give it a good clean out, in the hope it will prevent further issues. Its now carbon free...

  3. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    The story behind my 9-5 is long and stressful. I bought the car over 12 months ago and it soon developed a chain noise Which after striping down it was found the be a balance chain guide. So I replaced all the cam gear bits and deleted the balance gear. After this the car was fine for a month or...

  5. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi guys, A while ago I posted about a limited performance message on my 2008 9-3 Aero TTiD. With advice, I checked and cleaned the three main culprits (egr, maf etc.) and used a dpf cleaner, twice!..... The warning remained, but it still pulled like a train, so, rather naively we chose to...

  8. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    The bad news is that the alternator on my Vector Sport ttid 180 has decided to go pop...... The good news is that it actually gave up while I was at Savage Saab in High Wycombe (highly recommended) getting my new spare key fob programmed!! Left my car there to be fixed and took home one of...
  9. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    The fuel economy on my 02 9-5 Aero auto (96k miles) has gradually got noticeably worse over the last 2 years. The car goes like the wind as ever. Could this be due to the airflow sensor needs replacing? Any other ideas? Thanks
  10. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Hi, when I bought this car it was a bit of a pain engaging reverse but of late all gearchanges have become so notchy that I'm getting tennis elbow. There's oil in the gearbox and I've topped it up. It's pretty black and thick so I'm going to change it. The manual says don't use synthetic, can...

  12. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Had intermittent CEL Various suggestions ended up in changing DI unit (also recommended by Saab dealer). Was ok until turbo cut in then began flashing for about 20 seconds. Went out of its own accord a few minutes later. Does the same. Put old D I back on and has gone back to intermittent...

    I’m sorry to be acting like the harbinger of doom today. It’s just the way the news seems to be flowing. But hey, Saab sales in Russia were up 90% in Q3 of this year!!! That’s got to be a good thing? And there’s more good news, too….. Saab satisfaction in Germany A recent poll of car...

  15. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    I drove home in my 94 9000 CSE the other night and the car was fine. The next day, I turned it over and nothing happened. Fuel was a bit low, so filled up with an extra gallon, but no go. The first time I turned it over there was some sign of life. Didn't actually fire, but changed tone as the...

  17. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    I now have what appears to be engine oil all over the bottom of the car and the driveway (low level warning light too). Any ideas where it's coming from given that it's not just on the ground but the covers/exhaust etc below the engine are covered in oil as well - as though it's been sprayed...

    While Swade’s a little under the weather, I’ll throw in this little somewhat meaningless post. I was going to attempt a design like this myself, post it on CafePress and see how things went. However, now I know that it will likely never happen, so I’m giving the idea to our resident T-shirt...

  20. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Tickover is about 850 RPM with an intermittent miss every 10 secs or so. When the ACC is running it almost stalls when the compressor kicks in and the surges before settling back to a lumpy idle. I've read about cleaning the ICV and there is supposed to be a set of instructions somewhere, but...
