  1. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Hi all! I've been using this forum a lot to work on my 2004 9-3 since i bought it last year but there's one problem i have not been able to find an answer for anywhere. For the past few months, I've noticed that my gas pedal becomes much stiffer when i press it about halfway. It presses easily...

    So I am not very knowledgable when it comes to cars :o. Anyways, I have four codes on my 2002 Saab 9-3... I bought this car at auction a few weeks ago. I have only been putting Regular gas in it. Is it possible that regular gas can set off error codes? Thanks, BK

    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)??

    I had my 1992 900s parked on an incline yesterday for about an hour. The rear of the vehicle was higher than the front and the gas tank was full. When I got back in the car there was a strong gas smell. I found that there was gas pooled up on top of the fuel pump. All hose fittings and...

    OK.. here's the deal. I have been getting appx 20 mpg on a 06 9-3 Aero. Then ran through some water and sucked up a big gulp *ooops*. Took it to the trusty Saab shop in Houston and they dried it out properly, replaced plugs and air filter, and it runs fine now. Smooth run and idle, good power...

    I just completed a clutch replacement this month and replaced engine oil while I was down there. Car's driving wonderfully but every once in awhile when idling it will turn off. It doesn't really stutter or stumble (maybe the tiniest bit). It'll be idling right below 1k (I don't know where...

    I have an 08 9-3 2.0T and the fuel level sender just recently started to go on the fritz. Some times it reads, some times it doesn't. I haven't really noticed a pattern for when it reads. I tried just running some fuel line cleaners through it and that didnt work. Another person just suggested...
  8. NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    Hello All, Firstly, I have never joined a car forum before, so forgive me if I say or ask something stupid. I have purchased a Used '97 NG900 and it has been a wonderful car, but I have recently ran into 2 issues that may need to be addressed. I am aware that Saabs can be expensive to fix, so...
  9. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    So the gas gauge in my 2005 saab 9-3 2.0T stopped working one day after my friend was topping off my tank for me. He only had to put in about 5 gallons before it was full. When he closed the gas cap I turned on the car and my gas gauge didn't go up and my gas light went on. The computer in the...
  10. 9-5 Workshop
    Hello, I recently purchased my 2002 Saab 9-5. I've had to put some money in to fixing it up, but it seems to run like a champ. I had a quick question for anyone who has any ideas: The previous owner used regular gas in it and when I purchased it I switched immediately to premium. Is there...

    Good afteroon! I'm Charlie, and over the weekend we bought a 2006 Saab 93 Sportcombi Aero! It is a great car! It current has about 143,000 miles on it. Our first Saab, but far from the first European vehicle. I've owned several Vw in the past, Beetle 1.8T, Jetta TDI, Cabrio 2.0. One little...

    I have a 1993 900 convertible that has an odor within the car (though not on the outside). My girlfriend thinks it smells like gas or exhaust and doesn't want to ride in the car because it gives her a headache. I have gotten used to it -killed enough brain cells - but would really like to have...
  13. NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    Greetings all! Alright, one more problem for the goose. I've recently had an intermittent fuel odor from the front of the car, but now it seems more prominent and more permanent. Also, it's getting into the passenger cabin, more so when the air isn't recirculating. I'd really appreciate some...
  14. NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    I decided to start a new thread on this one. Long story short, I wired the plug wires up to the distributor cap wrong when I was working on the car and couldn't figure out the correct order, thanks to the forum I eventually got the cap wired up right, but the car dies as soon as I try to start...

    My 07 9-3 Aero says premium recommended, but not required. Can I use regular 87 unleaded? Any thoughts? Thx.

    I have a 1968 95 V4, and the seller told me it needed either a new hard fuel line or a gas tank. Pulled the sending unit and looked at the tank and it all seems fine there. The car's behavior makes me doubt that a new fuel line is the complete issue- it runs fine until you start driving it...
  17. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    I've been experiencing an intermittent annoying issue with my 2007 9-3. The car will not completely start up after turning the key. It sounds like it will but then it doesn't quite get there. It's kinda like trying to start a car that just ran out of gas - sounds good for a second then dies...

    I have a 92 900 turbo and my son said all of a sudden it quit. Don't know if this has been a on going problem. Fuel everywhere...block,turbo cooler...everwhere..Beside a bad FPR how could this much gas get everywhere? Would the computer tell the injectors they where closed if it malfunctions...
