    2003 9-3 Linear here. I've been having this issue for a few weeks now with it being rather intermittent and random, but at some points when I go to start the car, the engine with crank and crank but no start. I don't have any CEL/MILs, so I'm at a bit of a loss as to what would cause this...

  9. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Recently the engine has started randomly turning off while driving. Electrical keeps running but I have to coast off the road. After a second or so the car will report "traction control failure" and "stability control failure". After turning off there is a fan running, I am guessing the...

  12. 9-5 Workshop
    Hi guys, first post here. Not sure if there is much info out there but how difficult would it be to swap the 2.8 v6 into a 2011 9-5 vector (obviously built with the i4)? Does anyone know if people have done this or have any helpful info in this regard? Thanks.

  14. 99 & 90 Workshop
    Hi Friends. I believe I need a new front motor mount for my 1976 SAAB 99 GL manual (I am assuming the rubber cushion has worn out), but the rubber "cushion" is apparently no longer available: P/N 8379281 / 837928. I have scoured the entire earth, and have found 0. Does anyone know of a generic...

    Hey gang, I was driving on the Freeway today and had to punch it, I got a CEL and my AC stopped working, pulled the tech 2 and I got codes for both fan control circuits. Does this mean it's the relay? I've replaced it with a brand new one including both fans less than a year ago. Thoughts?

    About a week ago I noticed this weird noise coming from the drive belt side of the engine. It's gotten worse thru out the week. It seems to quite down after it warms up a little but it is still present. I found a guy that posted a video on YouTube of exactly what it sounds like. Drive belt...

    Hello! I am the owner of a 2005 Saab 9-3 Linear Convertible, and I can't seem to locate where this weird noise is coming from. It is not noticeable from inside the cabin with the windows up, but with the top down or from outside you can hear it loud and clear. When accelerating, a loud and...
