  1. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    I’ve recently had a misfire only on warm start never cold start and I’ve been trying to figure out the problem. I decided to do a fuel psi test today and it confirmed my suspicions. On the warm engine I put the key on engine off and the gauge read about 7 psi this would Definitely seem like the...
  2. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Hello Sorry to create this I think Ive made a similar one In the past but I took a drive with a fuel psi tester hooked up. Here were my results. I'm testing this because I get misfires on warm start and I can tell when its gonna happen because I can hear whining and what sounds like wiper...
  3. NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    I’m trying to solve the P1453 code I’m getting in my 9-3 SE. “EVAP Tank Pressure Sensor. Value too high when Depressurized.” I cannot find much info on this code, but I have been linked to the diagnostic page http://z90.pl/saab/dtc/read.php?model=9400&doc=idb28066 I have looked for a part number...
  4. NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    To start, I've read some other posts about issues with fuel pumps and had to get creative with some of my troubleshooting due to lack of tools; but, I couldn't seem to find any info that helps my specific situation. Long story short, I ended up pulling my whole fuel pump assembly out and I...
  5. C900 Workshop
    First post and thank you in advance for any help you can offer. My father bought one of the Silver/Buffalo Grey convertibles new when I was 15. He sold it about 18 years ago (a decision he has consistently regretted). I was able to to track it down and get it back from the second owner. It...
  6. Tech II Workshop
    Hi all, My lovely 1997 900 went over a speed bump and the engine cut out. My mechanic has checked the ignition and fuses and can't find anything wrong. We think it might be fuel pump relay but he's not keen on anything electrical. Is there anybody with a Tech 2 in the area of Radcliffe...
  7. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Hey there, looking for some help on what my options are (Car is a 2008 Aero XWD V6) I needed a new fuel pump and thought to just buy the whole cage/basket assembly. I didn't do research and ended up buying a Delphi unit and of course, it didn't work. Fast forward now, I ended up buying the XWD...
  8. NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    Howdy! I just thought I'd add some things I learned while dealing with my fuel pump to hopefully help out others in the future. This is not meant to be a replacement for the Haynes manual, or a bit of searching here and there online. Just to fill in some knowledge gaps. 1999 9-3 160,000 miles...
  9. 9-5 Workshop
    I’m talking about the line that goes from the check valve on the fuel pump to the fuel filter. Was trying to replace the check valve and barely managed to make it happen using a union and some extra hose. Not satisfied with it and want to replace the whole thing. Below is the line for the 9-3...

    Hi. My 99 won't start. She cranks long and strong, but not even a sputter. I replaced (competently) the fuel pump, points, rotor, condenser, fuse, relay, warm-up regulator, etc. I also checked as many of the electrical connections as I could. Might it be the ignition switch?
  11. 9-5 Workshop
    Should you be looking for a 2 Year replacement fuel pump, I can enthusiastically recommend WorldPac. They guarantee their parts for 2 Years and mine lasted exactly 2 Years and 2 Months. When last we checked, they were out of stock, there must be great demand for replacing fuel pumps every 2...
  12. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Folks, I'm sure this has been said somewhere but I'm letting it be known here again. Orio is using ProParts Sweden as the OEM for 2.8 fuel pumps. I have replaced 5 pumps on 2.8s and once on the 2.0 and I have had to re do the job EVERY TIME. These pumps are DUDS. They do not function...

    2001 9-3 Viggen 3dr hatchback: pretty sure my passenger window switch is messed up, and so I’m trying to manually gap the female connector in the center console to roll it up. Picture included, if anyone can tell me which pin goes to which. Already picked the WIS and EPC for info, nothing there...
  14. 9-5 Workshop
    Should there be a solid stream of fuel coming from valve when depressed? My 2003 9-5 with the 3.0 died on the highway. Have changed the CPS but no change, still won't start. I can hear fuel pump running for a few seconds when key is turned on. Seems to be OK. When I depress the valve on...
  15. C900 Workshop
    Can it be done and work properly? I'm having trouble finding stock on the replacement pump in Canada, so I thought I could borrow the pump unit (internal unit, not the whole fuel bucket) from my '90 900T. The pump from the turbo is Walbro 4500270. Haven't been able to get the securing ring off...
  16. 99 & 90 Workshop
    Hi friends. Usually when the tank gets filled there is a gas smell in the trunk. The filler and vent tubes do not seem to be the source. Maybe the fuel pump or sender have leaky gaskets? I oped the two access caps and see anything, but it does seem "gassy" in there! Do I need a special fuel pump...

    The fuel pump runs when I jump the 27 top and 30 bottom fuses. However, when the fuses are in and I try to start the car the pump doesn't run. The fuel and system relays were tested, and can be felt to be working when plugged in and the car is powered on. (The ignition was replaced with...

    Time to ask if anybody knows or been through this. Working on my fuel pump as I don't have any pressure readings when tested. Found crack in thin plastic tubing at pump motor. Got some 3/8 tubing from auto store but it just doesn't want to bend or fit well on the nipple of the pump. Yes I...

    Hi. I have a 1976 SAAB 99 GL, 4-door, manual. Where is my fuel pump? And what is the Bosch part number? Help, please...
  20. NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    Hello, Well, I've been working on my 2001 9-3. A week ago my car cut out in power during acceleration and then died and wouldn't start up. Crank, no start. The next day I went to go check out the car and it fired right up so I brought it home. Ignition pressure measured 5psi-10psi, idle was...
