  1. 9-5 Workshop
    Hi Guys, I've got a 2005 9-5 Arc that's been giving me some weird issues. I've been having the coolant gauge turn itself from operating temp to 0 for about 4 years now. No real pattern to it, hot outside the car, cold outside, doesn't seem to effect it other than it gets up to operating temp...
  2. NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    Hello, My 2000 Saab 9-3 2.0T has trouble starting and running when I have my MAF sensor plugged in. When I unplug it, the car runs perfectly fine. I have already installed a new MAF sensor and also replaced vacuum lines. What else could it be? All help is appreciated!
  3. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Hey folks, I'm looking at 9-3 in a few days which is labeled as a mechanic's special. It's been taken to two dealerships and two indies for various bits. The car has had a pretty good service record but it looks like it failed emissions because of high NO x. The coolant system has been...
  4. NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    Hello - any & all help is much appreciated! None of the threads I have seen Anywhere (here, youtube, other Saab sites, etc) show pictures that look like my engine. They all say to 'Reset the throttle Body' - but mine doesn't look like what they show. I have attached pictures. I would also...

    P2229 error code - Barometric PS [SOLVED] This week I picked up a 2006 9-3 Aero SportCombi 6sp stick. I'm in NJ, and its inspection sticker is expired. I have a CEL, with error code P2229. I have done a fair amount of searching Saab forums and the web in general. I was hoping that a quick...

    The car was running poorly recently, especially since a week ago, and throwing intermittent P0300 and P1181. I thought I'd start with the cheapest fix (Vacuum). When I removed the engine cover to inspect them, I noticed that my PCV is completely banjaxed - see this thread. My mechanic...
  7. C900 Workshop
    My Bosch MAF sensor was running okay until it started intermittently failing (no signal at all). I had an EEuroParts TPI MAF sensor around so I put that in and it ran like crap and threw a burn-off error CEL. So I returned it and got another TPI. This one runs much better but still throws that...
  8. NG900 & OG9-3 Performance, Mods & Tuning
    Hi, I'm new here and also new to the car community in general. Someone's selling a cold air intake system for the Saab 9-3 2001 (my car's exact model). It seems like a steal, $90!! What's the procedure to install this? I heard that the MAF sensor will get confused if I install it wrong and I...
  9. 9-5 Workshop
    G'day everyone, I'm looking to do an open air intake install this weekend, and just wanted to confirm the required piping diameter for connecting to the MAF, on both the pipe and filter sides. This is a good representation of the setup I'll be aiming for: Is it 3" on both sides of the MAF...

    Hi Folks- I'm on the brink of resolving my roaming idle and high idle (see recent "Engine Trouble" thread). I need to replace the large throttle body vacuum line on my 2006 9-5 2.3T. The line runs from the left lower rear of the TB to the left side behind the power steering reservoir and then...

    Hi, I have a 9-3 vector sport 2.2 diesel on a UK 53 plate. The car is in limp mode, the engine light on and is showing fault code P0107 I have just replaced the MAP Sensor, MAF Sensor and the atmospheric Pressure Sensor, but the fault is still there.:( When driving the car after clearing...

    I had just noticed that I my gas mileage had dropped drastically from 32-33mpg on the highway to 22mpg or so. This was according to a reset SID which I have tested as accurate. I had just had my clutch changed last week and had a new S&B air filter installed so I figured something must have...
  13. NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    I've replaced the MAF sensor from Carquest. I continue to get a P0100 which points to the MAF. Any ideas? I've erased the error, still comes back within 10 miles of driving. Any help would be preesh!!
  14. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    New owner here, and I had some dried battery acid to remove from the driver's side of my 9³'s engine compartment. Apparently, one of the connectors came loose when I removed the battery tray for cleanup. NOW THE CAR WON'T START. Dash lights up like Christmas but when the key is turned--...

    What is the best way to detect a large evaporative leak? I had codes P171 and P0455. I've removed and cleaned the MAF sensor; the codes remain. Should I replace all hoses on the car if I got a great parts supplier quote? Is that something a beginning DIYer can do?

    Car won't accelerate below 2500RPM Hi All, Since I'm new on this forum I'll share a bit of background about my Saab and me. I'm driving a Saab 9-3 SS 1.9TiD MY 2006 for almost 2 years. I have always wanted a Saab since I was young, amazing and special cars. Doing about 12K miles each year...

    MAF is in unknown condition. May or may not work. I took it out of my car because I got an MAF error once every blue moon, but I also had many issues with TB, so it may have been the TB. The first time I got an MAF error, I cleaned the MAF with MAF cleaner, and the error went away. So, status...

    I have a 2001 Saab 95 V6. Other than oil changes and other minor maintenance, I'm pretty much a newbie when it comes to working on cars. However, I learn fast. With the help and advice of an indy friend I've replaced a DI cassette, the fuel pump, the radiator, and then all together: the timing...
