    Long time Saab Lover, first time owner! I just purchased a 1999 9-3 Convertible, and I've got my Haynes manual, but hoping to utilize the Saab knowledge in forum for some of the more interesting hiccups along the way. So far all the work I've done consists of oil change (mobil 1), with K&N...

    Hey everyone, I'm getting this whining noise on cold starts that persists when I drive (sounds like an elephant every time I shift as well). Only occurs in cold starts. In addition, what sounds like one of the pulleys or timing belt, I get this clicking as the car runs idle. Thoughts? Refer...

    Hi, My name is Pep and I'm from the Netherlands. For the past semester I studied some history- and Russian-related subjects in Tallinn, Estonia. I have always had a love for for old cars since I grew up with my dad fixing up and modifying air-cooled VW's. Saabs were never part of my interest...

    The 1992 2.1 sedan I bought has blue (?) coolant. I'm used to red and green being the two main dyed formulations sold in Australia. Is blue a special Saab coolant? I think mercedes benz oem coolant might be blue. The green and red are different chemical mixtures. As the car basically did...

    Hello, Ive just bought an aftermarket Amp and sub, spent hours yesterday trying to get it to work with the original AMP which is located under the drivers seat. I already had an RCA adpater/Hi Lo converter but I'm not that technically gifted nor as handy as I wish I was so I just gave up. I...
  7. Cars Wanted - North America
    Currently looking for an AWD, 6MT Saab 9-3. Those are the three big things. Being an Aero trim level or having a V6 is just a bonus. Looking for something on the cheaper side as I'm not particularly concerned by mileage and general mechanical/aesthetic condition. I plan on building the car a bit...

  15. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Hi there, I just bought my first Saab 9-3. It's a 2.0 SportCombi Wagon, and I truly love it. The 120 000 miles is coming up soon, but the car is running amazing. The only thing I really feel it is missing out on is the power on the lower gears. Now I have read that the engine is limited on the...

    Have a 9-3 i bought for $3k. Developed a vibration in the front end that sounds like something rapidly spinning against plastic, for lack of a better description. It vibrates through the steering wheel and pedals in the 1800-2200 RPM range in all gears. Took it in to the Saab tech. Two visits...
  18. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    So, I've enjoyed all the fun the P0638 code has to share. I had a catastrophic failure, had a Saab guru replace the ECM ($1200 repair on my $500 dollar car), and all was well. Then, the walking pace (seriously, limp home is a generous description) cruise back home. I removed the throttle body...
