  1. Been dealing with a boost spike issue for a couple of weeks, please help me fix it!

    Clutch is in and broken in, still having issues. Going to test for boost/vacuum leaks. Sent from my LM-V405 using Tapatalk
  2. Sachs ZF clutch issues

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Had my mechanic install a Sachs ZF clutch kit with new LuK DMF and FTE slave. Also Redline MT85 fluid change. I'm getting a clacking sound while in neutral. If I press the clutch in, the noise goes away. If I push the clutch in and release it very slowly, the noise also goes away. The clutch...

  4. Clutch grabs suuuper low after clutch job

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Just checked with my mechanic and he used redline MT85 GL4. I'm wondering if it's too thin and that's why the noise is loud? Would thicker oil quiet it down? Sent from my LM-V405 using Tapatalk

    Reading up on it more it looks common on the f40. Is there any fix? Sent from my LM-V405 using Tapatalk
  6. Clutch grabs suuuper low after clutch job

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    This is very odd. Was listening to the noise more in my garage. It's still happening when my foot is off the clutch. I figured out though that if I release the clutch very slowly, the noise is not audible. It's only when releasing the pedal at a normal pace. Anyone have any idea on why this...
  7. Clutch grabs suuuper low after clutch job

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    After putting some miles on the car I feel like the clutch is getting a bit better. Will keep updating. But I do have a problem when the car is in neutral if anyone has input. I'm getting a pretty loud chattering when the pedal isn't pressed. It's very concerning to me. Is this part of break in...
  8. Clutch grabs suuuper low after clutch job

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Thanks for the info. Gonna see how it is after about 500 miles. Gonna re-bleed if it's still real low. A note on the Sachs clutch though, this thing grabs super tight! And it's like perfect weight for me, not too heavy. I remember driving my friends g37 with a stage 2 clutch (I think Spec) and...

    I didn't capture it on video, but it happens on every gear 3rd and up. If you want I can try and get a vid tommorow. Sent from my LM-V405 using Tapatalk

    Yeah I'm not really sure where to go from here honestly. I've been through two different boost control valves, same results from each. I'm going to give my mechanic a call and see if he can figure it out. Really can't figure out why I can't get stable boost. Sent from my LM-V405 using Tapatalk

  13. P0193 Error, Saab Aero 9-3 2.8T V6

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Welp no bent pin on my end. Just aggravation. I do have a custom 340lph fuel pump I built ready to go in though. Hopefully that takes care of the issue. Until then, any other input in what the issue could be? Sent from my LM-V405 using Tapatalk
  14. P0193 Error, Saab Aero 9-3 2.8T V6

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Excellent! I'm going to check mine.. Had a friend with long arms help me do plugs and coils and he manhandled the ecu. Wondering if I have a bent pin, maybe that would solve p0193 for me and hopefully boost issues

    Doing the clutch on my 08 Aero soon and wanna make sure I've got all the correct parts. Originally ordered a cheap aftermarket slave cylinder but was reading some bad stories on aftermarket slaves so decided to go with an FTE one which I'm pretty sure is OEM. That along with my Sachs uprated kit...
  16. Will I need to modify Bilstein Struts?

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Thanks! As for the Konis, I couldn't find much info on the strts for our cars. Some sites I was browing said compatible, some said they weren't. I'm sure if you found a pair though and they fit they would work with H&Rs. Sent from my LM-V405 using Tapatalk

    Congrats! As for the shift boot, state of nine makes a genuine leather one, will probably hold up much much linger than the pleather our cars use. Sent from my LM-V405 using Tapatalk

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    I don't think so. I've had to replace two on my older Aeros, and the leaks always were coming from the top hoses/cap. Your best bet imo is to get two new hoses for the top, clamps, and if it's still leaking a new cap. A whole new unit might not be necessary if the resorvoir itself isn't cracked...

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Thank you for the replies everybody, they are extremely helpful. Yes, there are many factors that can cause this which is why I have been so overwhelmed by this! First off, I just bolted the wastegate from the 07 Aero on, didn't do any adjustments to it so the preload could be off. That's the...

    It's more than likely the coolant overflow tank. Esaabparts.com has tons of diagrams, though. Sent from my LM-V405 using Tapatalk
