  1. NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    Car: 94 NG900 SE Turbo Ever since my dad and I changed out the clutch I have been experiencing problems when the weather is hot or if the car is driven for long periods at a time. The clutch action feels extremely hard and "sticky" (The best way I can describe the feeling is it's almost like a...
  2. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    So I replaced my ECU today on my '06 9-3 2.0T (Thank you Brew City Boost! Stage 1) and all of the problems that I'd had have disappeared. My A/C works now, and the car has dramatically reduced the number of personalities that it has. It has reduced to only 2 now... hot and cold. When the car is...

    Hey guys, just got a 2002 9-3 2.0 4 Door Hatchback. A/C seems to work fine and the blower is strong but the air never blows hot or warm on any setting. All fuses are good and antifreeze levels are norm. Car operates at normal temperature. I've searched the forums and couldn't find any info...
  5. NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    Hello, I have an A/C system with many new parts, cleared of blockage, vacuumed, holding pressure (pressure numbers are almost perfect), fan is working, and hot air in cabin. After compressor replacement, it was creating a vacuum on the low pressure and high pressure was about 100. It was...
  6. NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    Hey everyone! I seem to have developed a pretty significant issue with my 2001 9-3. It started when I couldn't reach full boost, which was just an inconvenience. Through regular maintenance, I replaced the spark plugs. I noticed the old ones looked much too white. That coupled with my boosting...

  12. NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    I own a 1999 Saab 9-3 SE 5-door Hatch and here is my question... How do you tell if your car is the standard 185bhp SE or a 200bhp HOT SE? I look everywhere and i don't see a number or something that could point me in the right direction... I hopped on CARFAX and all it told me was that i had a...

    Due to a new job downtown (yay!), I'm forced to sell my Saab (boo!) I absolutely love the car, but I'm only driving it once or twice a week now. I'd like to see it go to another Saab enthusiast who will enjoy the car as much as I did. The car is fully loaded, with the exception of factory...

    I have a 2001 Saab 9-5 2.3t with 165K miles on it. I took it to the Philippines where I am posted for work (I know, I know...it may well be the ONLY one here). I'd like some feedback on how hot it's running. It's been a NY/MN car previously. Generally the gauge reads in the middle, however...
