  1. Crank No Start

    9-5 Workshop
    This is for a 2009 9-5 with 166k mi. Two weeks ago my car would crank but not start even with a jump. Had a new battery put in and all was good. Then we had that polar vortex and the car once again would not start when I was leaving work. Had it towed to the shop and they said once the charged...

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    the car is running rough at idle, only code given was a P0300. I have eliminated spark, fuel, and compression as the cause of the issue by using the activation feature on my tech 2 scan tool. cylinder 1 has a short on the coil when I pull it off, but it seems to be firing fine otherwise. all...

    C900 Workshop
    Hello Saab nation! Trying to get my 87 Saab 900 working: Facts: one week ago I pressure washed the engine without covering up any of the components, the car was running at the time. The car ran a bit funny after the wash (yes, I realize the error of my ways). A week later I'm trying to start...

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Hi all - I am new to this forum. I'm glad it exists! I am dealing with a confusing and frustrating issue. My 2006 9-3 2.0t, on occasion, will simply not start from the off position. For the vast majority of the time, it occurs when I am driving either short or long distances, stop for gas or...

    Hi I drive a 2001 saab 9-3 2.0 turbo t7 I have a bad leak coming from my timing cover. Mechanic told me the seal needs to be replaced inside the timing cover. I agree with him as the leak is coming from that area. He said it would be 3 to 4 hours labour and would charge me $200 cash includes...

    Hello performance SAABers! I am planning a really nice engine rebuild for my SPG, and part of that fun process is aquiring parts for the build. I already have much needed for the build, but I have a lot to aquire still as well. Is there anyone out there that can fab-up or sell a finely...
  9. Re-Engineering the CPS (Crank Position Sensor)

    9-5 Workshop
    Hey everyone, first time posting, but I think I have something very interesting to offer. I bought my first Saab this weekend. A 2003 9-5 2.3t Linear wagon. In the process of assessing its condition and deciding what maintenance and checks should be done, I noticed that CPS failures are quite...

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    Hi Everyone! I haven't needed the services of SC for some time now, but my beast has finally got me stumped. 1995 900 S convertible, 2.3 non-turbo, 5-speed, 120k. She's been driven more often lately and has been running like a champ. I haven't had to do anything to the drivetrain except pull...
  11. intermittent crank, starting problems

    9-5 Workshop
    My 2001 9-5 is experiencing a starting problem I have not been able to locate in the forum. Once started, the car runs fine. I first thought I had a battery problem because the cranking was slow or it would click from too low voltage. The dash lights would simultaneously dim. I had to get a...
  12. 96 900 SE Turbo Crank sensor fault code HELP

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    My 96 900 SE turbo will not start. Drove it to a store and it ran fine. Came out of the store and it would crank but not start. Had it towed home. Ran my scan tool and it threw fault code P0340 Crankshaft Sensor Circuit Fault. Is there any way to test the sensor to make sure it is the problem...
  13. Long crank time after re-installing transmission

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    My 1998 900 turbo has always taken about 4-5 cranks to start up from cold. Now, after putting a new clutch in, it has been taking about 10 cranks consistently. Why would this be the case? Also swapped out the 90 amp alternator for a 115 amp one, but I can't imagine that would cause the...
