  6. Intake Seal Missing?

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    I just bought a '96 900S convertible. Love it. I'm having a problem with the idle speed, which oscillates while I've got the clutch in. I suspect that the air intake is leaky, mostly because it seems to be missing a seal. Note that the two small screw holes in the second picture which have...

    Hi guys, I have a 2003 Saab 9-3 Arc. The A/C does not blow cold. The fan works and the air comes out but it doesn't blow out cold. I was wondering if any others had similar A/C problems and could post what the problem was on their individual car. Thanks!

    Howdy! I have a 2001 9-5 linear. In November I took it to the mechanic because of a coolant leak. He fixed that, and also noticed that the engine was smoking. He determined that oil was getting into the air system. He tried replacing some suspicious looking tubes, but it didn't fix it. My...
