  1. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    First post, Excited to see what people have to say. Ok, so I've had my 9-3 Arc for a few months, and I know I'm going to keep this car basically forever. It came red, but I decided to paint it satin black. Got to be the best car I've driven. On my many cruises I find myself wanting more from the...

    My question is I have a 05 Saab 9-3 CV B207R AUTO as I'm learning please correct me if I'm wrong. The 05 9-3 some Saabs were "upgraded" for the oil trap and stuff like that. Do I still have to change this part that goes inside the intake manifold it's for the sludge. Does this part comes with...

    I'm looking to upgrade the rear suspension on my 2004 9-5 Arc wagon. The old suspension is sagging quite a bit, and I'm about to install a tow hitch and start towing small trailers. I'm worried that with the extra weight of a trailer, or even with a bit more time, the suspension will sag to the...

    My 2003 9-3T Arc bucks like a bucking bronco if left at the idle it starts with. Usually I try to give it a little gas to quiet it down and then it's fine afterwards. A couple of times I just left it alone (no extra gas) and it bucks for about 20 seconds. After it gets past this the engine...

    Hey guys, so I own a 2003 9-3 2.0T Arc. Earlier this year I had a stage one tune made by Mike at MPS (great guy, super helpful with support). Car ran great and was making about 15 psi of boost (after fixing several vacuum leaks). Lately though I've been peaking at about 10.6 psi on average...

    I have a 2003 Saab Arc 9-5 3.0t 110k miles, perfect condition, always taken to the Saab dealership then to the GM, doesn’t show age, nothing aches, the only thing that’s wrong with it is very weird: While parking in reverse (or continuously driving backwards) the car howls, like a sad elephant...

    I've been having some crazy issues with my 2003 9-5 V6 3.0, and it seems like every time I fix something, three more problems pop up. We are moving this weekend and I'm freaking out because I can't get the car started. This may be long, but I don't want to leave anything out. Thank you in...
  12. 9-5 Workshop
    I tried the search function and couldn't find anything specifically about the 2003 3.0t Arc, so I figured I'd just ask. In a matter of 4 minutes, I heard a squealing noise (belt shredding), lost power steering, and overheated (pouring coolant out of all over the road). Of course, the...

    I have a check engine light and a readout on my stereo that says to fill the coolant and I just did. Nothing is changing. The car runs fine but this is just bothering me. Also my odb reader is not working. I tried looking in the manual to find the fuse that controls that because it may be out...
