fuel pump

  1. 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...
  2. 99 & 90 Workshop
    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?

    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...

    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...
  6. 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...
  7. 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...
  8. 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...
  12. 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...

    Hey Guys, New to this forum so forgive me if I screw up any rules. Well here is the issue, got an '04 9-3 linear, 94000mi on it, 5-speed. Engine cut out on highway in rush hour traffic and in 96 degree heat, not fun. Started back up, ran for a couple seconds, ran rough and died. Waited a little...
  14. C900 Workshop
    Background: Bought a 1988 Saab 900 8V non-turbo from an old man. He told me the car was running before he let a friend work on it for him. The car went in for a full tune up and some other issues and came back a brick. The old man says he thought it may have ignition problems because his friend...
  15. NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    My Saab 9-3 lost all acceleration when driving. Pulled off to side of road. Turned off engine. Would not start. Starter fluid sprayed into intake and the car started briefly. Diagnosed as fuel pump. We took out the fuel pump and appears that some rubbery substance has clogged up fuel pump...
  16. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Hey everyone, I'm new here and I come with problems haha. I own a 2007 9-3 Aero and I have an intermittent fuel gauge. When I fill up it sometimes goes down to empty then goes back up to full and will eventually after a number of miles level itself out to the correct amount while driving and it...

    Ok, so recently I bought a new gas cap and it killed my car... Earlier today (before new gas cap) a coworker pointed out that my gas cap was leaking air. I have always noticed the hissing coming from behind the fuel door and never thought anything about it, so I never did anything about it...

    While working on this 2001 Saab 95 I found that the gas coming through Fuel Rail is like Milky white not like the regular petrol color, so I drained all of the gas off the tank, using Fuel Pump Priming (Turning On and Off the Ignition switch to pump out all of the gas in the tank) and poured in...

    What are some of the signs and symptoms that my fuel pump is bad or going out in my 99' Saab 9-5 3.0L V6? And if it is going out or bad could it cause my car to read P0172(system running rich)??
  20. NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    Not sure where to post this but please help if you can! My car just decided to stop working. It turns over and tries to start but it will not. I replaced the fuel pump September 2013. When I turn the car to the on position I cannot hear the fuel pump work. When I turn the car over and try to...
