  1. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    At first I was having cylinder 1 misfires and so I switched the 1st and 2nd coil packs and figured out that that coil pack was bad. So I replaced it. A few weeks later I started having similar issues and ran the codes to find that I was having multiple cylinder misfires along with the code P0103...

    So I have a 2004 Saab 9-3 linear and and I'm no stranger to the P0300 misfire codes. I just changed the oil and filter, and spark plugs (NGK iridium). But my engine is still running rough at idle and my check engine light begins blinking after only a few seconds of running. Which (sputtering...

  6. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    I've reached the end of my tether! Had that shudder that some saabers have talked about with my 2004 9-3 aero. Had no CEL during that time. Changed the coil packs... didnt fix it. Changed plugs, both turbo vacuum control valves and all vacuum lines... didnt fix it. Drove it anyway, gingerly, for...
  7. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Anyone know how to test the Aero coil packs with a multimeter? I get a shudder/shake at about 2k rpm when I stomp the gas. It seems most noticeable around high boost. I'm not getting any codes or CEL's so I can't pinpoint the cylinder. It seems silly to replace all the packs if it's just one bad...

  9. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Hey everyone, I have a 2003 9-3 Arc, and just yesterday the engine started to crap out on me. While driving down the road, pressing the gas to accelerate caused the engine to shake and shudder fairly violently through all RPMs, and very little power was getting to the wheels. It's also very...
  10. 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...
  11. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    I'm quite certain I've seen instructions online with photos. From what I recall it's a fairly simply job, but I can't find the instructions anymore and the search feature is disabled on the forum. Can someone point me in the right direction? Thanks!
  12. NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    My 17 year old son drives a 900S and overall it's been a very reliable $600 car, but lately it's been running poor and we've invested that much again in parts. It starts great but you can tell there's a miss even at idle. On the road it is very sluggish and has no power. The cat was plugged so...
