    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    So my ignorant self from 6 months ago didn't know there was a difference between the orange and green coolants. So I topped off the coolant in my 2005 9-3 with green. Seeing as it was November in Minnesota, I had no issues with cooling. Fast forward 6 months, It is now April and my car has...

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    I am attempting to locate and replace my 2003 Saab 9-3's CPS. I have hunted for it for almost 1/2 a day both online and above and below the engine. Can anyone please help me figure out where it is. I looks like a simple replacement project but I can't find it to save my life. Any help would...
  3. Slow start/firing

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    I have a 1999 9-3 with 177k on it. After having to get a jump start my Saab is slow to start. It has to crack several times before actually starting up. Any ideas? Could it be the crank position sensor going bad?
  4. Crank position sensor?

    9-5 Workshop
    My 2001 Saab 9-5 SE started dying on me a few days ago on my way home from work. I'd wait 5-15 minutes and it would start again, which I'm sure has to do with the whole "won't start if hot" thing. I eventually get my car home, sleep on it, and ever since the car just won't start. The engine...

    9-5 Workshop
    Okay, so for what it's worth I am posting an experience I recently had. Car was sluggish and died going up a hill, low gas level. After that it would crank but would not start. Didn't pull DIC to check for spark but was close to doing that. Fearing ruining the DIC kept that from happening...

    Hi everyone, whilst cleaning the EGR valve on my 2.2 TiD today I noticed that a vacuum pipe that runs close by was worn through. The pipe goes to a diaphragm type valve that is above the EGR and I was wondering what this valve does and where does the pipe run to/from? I have been having lots...
  7. Car Starting

    C900 Workshop
    My 1987 900 turbo starts just fine cold. I took it to grocery store last night and was inside for 15-20 minutes, returned to the car and it would just crank and crank without turning all of the way over. Smelled of fuel in the car. Let it sit for about 15-20 more minutes and then cranked until...

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    Running great until two days ago. Slowly getting worse. Runs very rough at idle and first gear, hesitates, surges in second. I did get the cassette at the junk yard, bad luck? Could it possibly be something else? air idle control? Throttle position sensor? crank position sensor...
