  2. NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    Hi folks, I've done some research on high idling issues but haven't quite found my particular situation. My 5-speed manual 1996 Saab 900S 2.3 convertible (non-Turbo) idles high after I press down on the accelerator but it drops back to normal idle after the engine warms up. It's been quite...

    My 1990 SPG idles normally when cold and warming up, but once warm will rev up to 1500-2000 RPM and then drop back down to 1000, and repeat on 5-10 seconds intervals. I've cleaned the MAF, put seafoam spray through the throttle body and cleaned out the idle control valve. All vacuum lines are...

    I had a strange occurrence with my '02 9-5 Linear this weekend that I figured I'd tell you all about. I was on the highway here in NH, doing about 75, in 5th gear with the cruise control on when I lost power and had to pull over. When I pulled over the car just died. Doing research on here, I...

  7. 9-5 Workshop
    I was driving my 2001 Saab 9-5 wagon. 3.0. And the car was putting when it was at idle. I brought it to the mechanic and he thought it was the spark plugs. It stopped for a couple miles, but now it is doing it again. Does anyone have any idea as to what this could be?

    Hi all, I have a 1997 2.3l n/a 900s. When I restart the car after a rest of 15 minutes or longer I get a pulsing idle. Once the engine is running and the car has moved for a minute or two all is good again. When it does pulse I can restore a regular idle by pumping the brake pedal (guess the...

    Hi, I recently purchased a 2003 Saab 9-5 4cyl 2.3T. I took it to my local Saab dealer to get an oil change the other day. It had been having trouble idling at stop lights. It kind or "putters" and sometimes seems like it is going to "conk out" although it hasn't yet. The Saab dealer gave me...

  15. 9-5 Workshop
    I have two seemingly related problems with my SAAB 95 1999: engine dies when idle and engine is difficult to start. It began with that the car intermittently would take a long time to start (happened three times after the car had been standing for at least a few hours). The starter sounded fine...

  18. NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    I have searched other threads and haven't found any that sound like my problem, so here you go. I have a 2000 9-3. Just recently the car has had a problem while it is stopped and idling, but still in drive (auto tranny). The problem, as far as I have seen, only happens when the A/C is on. The...
