  1. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    2008 Sport Combi V6 Mechanics sent 1st ECM off to be repaired. Said it was not repairable. Got NEW ECM but will not accept 'registration'?? "No one has the software, you need to find a saab dealer"?? They put old ECM back in, but car still misfires on Cyl #1. What the hell should I do...
  2. 9-5 Workshop
    I have a check engine light on, wondering if a bad exhaust leak can trigger it? Don't know of any other possible obvious causes. She doesn't run hot, exhaust smoke isn't black or anything, starts on a dime and runs great with good compression. Oil level is good. Hmm. What about oxygen sensors?

    I recently bought this 2006 9-3 and I love driving it. But it has a split personality. When I drive it very laid back, it acts perfectly fine, but if I try to engage the turbo (on purpose) I never know what I'm going to get... either I get decent response up to a point and then it starts bucking...

  9. NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    What is the best way to detect a large evaporative leak? I had codes P171 and P0455. I've removed and cleaned the MAF sensor; the codes remain. Should I replace all hoses on the car if I got a great parts supplier quote? Is that something a beginning DIYer can do?

    I just had my 2000 9-5 Wagon SE V6 3.0L in the shop for annual safety/emissions testing. The mechanic connected his hand held code reader to my car and it came back with three faults. The first said "02 Sensor" The second said "Catalyst" The third said "Component" I'm pretty sure that the...
