  1. 2006 9-3 Aero 2.8T Fuel Issues

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    When the car is warm but sits for >15 minutes, I have to relieve the pressure on the fuel pressure sensor in order to start it. It cold starts fine, idles fine, drives fine, and will start fine if it's been <15 minutes of sitting when warm. This past time when I had to relieve the pressure to...

  3. 9-3 Saab Aero 2.8 Hoses Broken While Replacing Rear Ignition Coil

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Hi, I replaced my ignition coils and while doing the rear coils, I ended up braking couple of hoses (see attached picture). Any idea what they are so I can buy the parts to replace them, AND what would be a temporary or easy fix for now.
  4. Sticky Manual Shifter

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    I've stored my car for 5 month of winter and now my shifter doesn't spring back to neutral. Shifting up and down all goes smoothly( 1st to 2nd, 3rd to 4th, 5th to 6th) however moving from side to side is very stiff and it won't bounce back to the neutral position, it stays wherever you put it be...

    The Lounge
    I recently missed the opportunity to buy a 2006 Aero convertible and, after the fact, discovered that it was the quickest model they made. What made that year so quick and what can I do to make, say a 2007 as quick?:confused:

    New Member Introductions
    Like the title says I had an $8700 insurance check, and I was just looking for an econobox with low miles. I was at my local Volvo's used car lot looking at a cheap Corolla I found on Autotrader that ended up having a lot of cigarette burns and hail damage. When I passed on that car I asked him...

  9. Misfire? 2006 2.8T Aero 6 Speed

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Like the title says 2006 2.8T Aero 6 speed. In gear 3 and above. I get a "misfire" around 1500 rpm. It only happens on occasion and I've narrowed the symptoms down to very specific symptoms I believe. First there are no codes except for P0496-my evap canister purge valve. The lights been on...
  10. 2.8 BOV Vacuum line question

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    For anybody running a vacuum operated BOV on the 2.8: Which vacuum line did you tap and could you post pics of where you tapped it? I tried tapping the line along the base of the hood because the line coming off of the intake manifold runs to it. Unfortunately it didn't work and the blow off...
  11. Intake dilemma

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    So Im contemplating installing a diy intake on my 2.8. The engine's just too quiet for my liking:) However I read somewhere in the FAQ section that replacing a stock intake can make the engine run rich. I have a stage one tune from jzw (which is amazing, I'll post another thread on that) and one...
  12. WTF coil pack connector?

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    I've had an intermittent cylinder 6 misfire for what seems like forever now. I replaced it, and the problem went away for a little while. I swapped it with the coil pack from number 4, and that worked ok for a little bit, but then it came back with misfires on 6,5,4,3,2, and a code for random...

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Does anyone know procedure to remove engine cover on 2.8 V6? I've checked the WIS and this site and can't find anything. Don't want to break the stupid thing. Again, this is for the 2.8, not the 2.0...
