    Hi, Just got my 9-3 tuned with stage 1 today. After I drove it to get food, ripped it for 30 minutes then decided it was time to head home. I stopped and noticed it sputtered a little bit at idle but thought nothing of it, then It got worse. When I went to rip on the car it felt like the car...

    Car runs rough especially at idle, lost power and occasionally in hot weather engine may stall at low rpm. ECU spits these trouble codes P0300, P0325, P0340 and P1350. What I did so far was to clone the existing ECU to another used ECU using the Trionic CAN flasher but nothing changed. Car has...

    I have an 03 9-3 Linear and been trying to fix the dreaded p0300 code. The only other code to pop up for a little was a P0411, but for right now it's gone and I don't care for it. As for the misfires, I replaced my plugs with some NGK Iridium IX's all gapped at .037 inches and also 4 coil packs...

  9. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Okay, so I know that these codes are relatively common, so pardon me if there is a go-to thread on the issues. I was driving along the highway when I had a backfire and lost power. I was able to limp off the highway and then home, but not before I stopped in and got a readout on my check engine...

  13. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Half way through the winter my 04 ARC when first starting her up in the morning would run rough for a good 10-20 seconds or until I gave it some gas and the idle would immediately clean itself up and stay that way for the remainder of the day. I could turn the car on and off multiple times...

    Hi, I have a 2006 9-3 2T wagon. I bought it for my son as a first car, and had nothing but trouble after about 4 months of owning it.

    My 04 SAAB 9-3 2.0t has a lean code, random misfire code, and a purge valve malfunction code. I did a fuel pressure test and got 10 psi while priming the pump and just under 40 psi while running. Car has intermittent misfires and bad hesitation at time. Any suggestions?

    Hi, Saab 9-5 2.0t 2004 I just changed the register chain and one of the exhaust valves (part of the spark plug broke a hole in it). Of course I had to drop the engine to the ground to get to the register. After putting the engine back together I'm reading a P0300 code and the engine does not...
  18. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Ok so I know this p0300 code has been gone over hundreds of times. I have searched and have not found anything that matches my issue. I have a p0300 code that I have reset multiple times. It keeps coming back every time the outside temp drops below about 40 deg.F. when this happens is when I...

    I have a 2007 9-3 with 2.0T engine. A couple of months ago the car was hard to keep running after a cold engine start - the rpm would vary quite a bit after initial start, and drop so low the engine would stumble and kill. After 1 or 2 starts like this it would settle down and seem to run OK...
