    Hello all, While changing the o-rings on the nozzle end of my injectors, one of the discs that would be between the intake and o-ring broke off/shot across the shop. I was wondering what this disc does, and if I can machine a replacement? Since I am a machinist, I can get pretty close...

    So I was on my way to lunch today, drove out of the parking lot and then out of nowhere, the car suddenly died. I tried starting it, and it did once for a few seconds, then died again. After that, it would crank, but would not start. I checked the codes and they were "the usual" for this car...

    I have a 2009 9-3 and I've just hit 120,000 Kilometres. So far I've had nothing wrong with the car - at all. Until recently. When I'm driving and put my foot down to overtake or speed up, sometimes the car seems to 'jump' and it almost feels like its not getting enough fuel? Almost the same...
