  2. 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...
  3. Timing Cover Gasket Repair Question

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    I am wanting to get others experiences when doing a timing gasket. Is it possible to do it with the engine in the car? I check WIS and it says remove the engine.

  4. Coolant madness

    New Member Introductions
    This is my first Saab and I love it. My cousin owned a 91' 900 5 speed which she bought from our family mechanic, who happens to be a Saab enthusiast. I personally have been interested in purchasing one since I had the pleasure of sitting in a 1997 900 SE. I've driven plenty of cars and the 2011...
  7. 2.8 Stutter Under Heavy Load

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    This issue started a few months ago and I can repeat the problem, but it hasn't really affected normal day-to-day driving, so I haven't made it a priority. Ok, so did some reading around the forums for engine stutter and have reached 2 common causes: an issue with the fuel system or ignition...
