    EVAP System High Purge Flow code, I've got the replacement part, I don't know where the part is in my bay. Is there a guide on this replacement? Whenever i'm in neutral my RPM's stay the same and when I'm stopped my RPM's climb by itself and go back down every ten seconds. Looking at replacing...

  3. Engine cuts due to misfires?

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Had my 2006 9-3 estate with the 2.8t V6 (auto) for about two weeks now and had no major issues so far (apart from a bit of coolant escaping but was topped back up) On Sunday afternoon I drove less than a mile when the car started to judder quite violently at low rpm then just died, after...
  4. 2006 SAAB 93 Aero 2.8t Stability Control Faulire , ABS, new ECU maybe ?

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    So on my drive home one night my car gave me the "Stability Control Failure" warning. The only other warning (or tick) it has ever given me is "Left Turn Light Failure", it would just blink at a different speed than my other turn signal. The next day it started but after my first stop it...
  5. Finally bought my SAAB!!

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Quick intro ya'll. I'm from Georgia, SAAB availability here is equivalent to finding an honest politician. I am sort of a gearhead; my father and I broker weird and oddball cars (Porsche, VW, Peugeot, etc). I've always wanted a 9-3SS, however I went the WRX/GTO/Supra/M3/M5 route; and after the...
  6. 2006 Aero SportCombi 2.8 oil pressure sensor replacement

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Greetings all, One by one I've been knocking off little fixes on my newly acquired SportCombi. I replaced the windshield wiper motor this week and will replace the driver nozzle when the part arrives today. Next up will (hopefully) be the oil pressure sensor. I continue to get a low oil...
  7. 2.8 V6 turbo misfired

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    2.8 V6 turbo misfire Hello Saab Forum members, My 2005 9-3 aero 2.8 v6 has this really annoying misfire. It seems to only happen between 2000-3000 rpm. It happens in any gear except 1st. I am just driving normally when it gives a misfire which can last between less than a second through to a...
  8. Turbo x first 2 weeks. More questions than answers

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Ok so after 2 weeks of daily driving my TX I have compiled a few questions so far. First of all I am having a familiar issue that I had with my old Aero 2.0T. When i try to start the car i would estimate 6 times out of 10 it will not fire up first try... I turn the key to the on position and the...
  9. Bad coil pack on 2.8l Aero?

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Anyone know how to test the Aero coil packs with a multimeter? I get a shudder/shake at about 2k rpm when I stomp the gas. It seems most noticeable around high boost. I'm not getting any codes or CEL's so I can't pinpoint the cylinder. It seems silly to replace all the packs if it's just one bad...
  10. Blow off valve?

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    I'm sure this has been asked on these forums before but since I cant find it or the answer in general.. How do you install a BOV on Saabs 2.8 turbo 6 thats in my 2008 Aero?? I read in a few places you can't since it's a MAF style motor. But if you follow the intake from the turbo to the manifold...
  11. 2.8T V6 Aero Alternator and Water Pump

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Has anyone replaced the alternator and/or water pump on their sports sedan? I have a 2007 Aero with ~116K on it and it needs an alternator. I would like to do the water pump at the same time. Any tips would be appreciated. Thanks!

    I'm a new proud owner of this fine automobile. I was just wondering of somethings I should know being a first time owner of a Saab. I test drove this car today and fell in love. I'm currently a new father and wanted to go with a wagon/ small suv. I first looked at a 1999 volvo v70...seemed there...
