  1. NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    Dear Friends: Ebay has a decent-looking new wastegate, and I am wondering if it will fit my car. The seller asked me if I have a Garrett TB 2559 turbo in my 1998 900 SE. Also, their wastegate is spec 0.35 bar / 5-6 psi. Is this right? HELP ME. My original wastegate is rusty and sticky. It's...

    Hi Everyone, for an introductory post a little about my Saab, check here: http://www.saabcentral.com/forums/showthread.php?p=5316209#post5316209 Come yesterday, when I tried to start my Saab, it had other plans. I turned the ignition without depressing the clutch, and the car lurched. That's...

    Howdy. I have a sweet 1998 SAAB 900 SE Turbo. The in-dash original turbo gauge usually doesn't work. In the past, if I hit the dashboard (like you would an old TV) or maybe hit a pothole it might come on, but no longer. I checked for a vacuum line, but don't see one. I checked fuses and relays...

    Hey guys! My front bumper on my 98 9000 cse recently got backed into and smashed... :( Instead of buying another cse bumper, is it possible to put an aero bumper on a cse? I like the sleek look of the aero style better. They are slightly different because the cse has the rubber pieces connecting...

    My 1998 900S was idling for about ten minutes and it stalled. The engine didn't shudder or make any weird noise. It just turned off. I could not get the engine started again. The starter turned over just fine, but there was no ignition. I waited about 45 minutes and tried again, and the engine...

    So I'm halfway through a 2000 mile road trip when I exit a restaurant after dinner and start a 1998 900 S 2.3L (Talladega edition) 5sp that starts, then stalls instantaneously after the first throttle burst above 1k RPM. Intermittently over the next hour I try cranking it over no fewer than 7...

    First post, I hope this is in the correct place... My '98 900 (109k miles) this week started, what I can best describe as, "lurching" or what feels like a misfire when I am starting from a cold start. It happens in P, R, or D and continues until the engine heats up. Today while driving, the...

    Hi, any ideas please? My air con on my trusty 1998 2.0i auto 900 S stopped working, if you press the snow flake (manual A/C) the engine note drops, there's the clonk sound and then (and this is the start of the odd bit) there is the noise of gas rushing behind the central console where the...

    Hi everyone, Just picked up a 1998 900S and enjoyed the experience for about a month until... The engine started dieing at idle with the clutch in while stopped at lights (just after warmup, a couple of kilometres from the house). It would restart straight away initially, but after a couple of...
