  2. Cone filter causing multiple misfires?

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    So recently I had the stretched chain issue on my '06 2.8t 93, got Nick150 to do the work for me and it's been running perfectly ever since. I just fitted a green cotton cone filter to it last night, no issues when driving about. This morning on start up the car was very juddery at idle with...
  3. 9-3 V6 with coolant leak & brown coolant

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    A couple of times recently I've had "low coolant level" read out on the eSID after topping it up. Only visible leak is on the bonnet cover and a small amount of white residue on the right side of the expansion tank, could this just be the yellow cap? I've read they can need replacing. The...
  4. 07 9-3 Aero 2.8T Misfires!

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    2007 9-3 2.8T with 105k. Just replaced all ignition coils and spark plugs 5 months ago. Last month check engine light came on. Code says cylinders 2,4,6 are misfires. Now, sometimes only 3 cylinders fire, can tell by hp cut in half, although I turn car off, mid driving, turn back on, and the...
  5. 2007 Aero 2.8t engine skipping/bucking

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Hi all, first post here. Starting last year, my 2.8 started to slightly buck sometimes when driving. Brought it to Saab, and they told me to wait until it throws a code. One year later, it is getting much more serious, and is bucking very hard at idle and between 2,000, and 2,500 RPMs. One thing...
  6. V6 Engine code: P0411

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Hey guys i'm new to the Saab world as I just bought a 2006 9-3 Aero 2.8 as my first Saab just yesterday. The woman who sold it to me told me there were no problems with it. Well this morning I took her for a drive and the engine code P0411 came up. What can I do to try to fix this myself? How...
  7. Battery, Starter, or Alternator?

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Hey everyone, So after successfully busting my *** to replace the coilpacks and plugs in my '06 aero I have begun to notice trouble with ignition after a cold start (usually overnight). I've been keeping an eye on the voltage with my passport Redline, and during driving the voltage is normal...
  8. LED lights flashing 9-3SC

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    1 year I joined this site, first time posting :cheesy: so this summer I've changed all the lights on MY07 to leds cause they look awsome :D. I've read that I need resistors so I got them all installed myself and they look great, no error messages on the SID so no hyperflashing. but there is a...
  9. Serp Belt Repalcement on the 2.8T Aero...

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    I have seen a lot of references to how much harder the serp belt and/or tensioner change is on the 2.8T versus the 2.0T, but I have yet to hear any specifics. I am at 54k, and have realized lately that I have a bit of a belt or slight pulley noise at idle, and I think that may be it. Also, the...
  10. Opel Vectra VXR upgrades for 2.8T V6

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    I see where Opel Vectra VXR tuners have an upgraded Radiator and Intercooler, and Brakes and other stuff that looks like it will work on our 9-3 2.8T V6's (I have a Turbo X) http://www.courtenaysport.co.uk/index.php?act=viewDoc&docId=87 The beefed up Radiator looks attractive - except for the...
  11. What has Opel done to the 2.8 V6 Turbo?

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Hey does anyone know what Opel has done to the new 2010 Opel Insignia engine? It's the same "LP9" engine as our beloved 2.8L V6 Turbos, (I have an '08 Turbo X) but they're getting 325bhp stock out of it. Whereas my Turbo X was only 280bhp stock. My previous owner did a Stage 1 upgrade to...
  12. VTuner, HPTuner, and vcm suite? I'm confused.

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    If I'm not mistaken, the vtuner is a bsr-style tuner that basically has a preconfigured tune to push into the 2.8T engine. Correct? So what is this vcm suite on hptuner.com? It has the saab 2.8T listed as a compatible engine. Does this mean that I can buy the vcm suite and do my own custom...
