  1. C900 Workshop
    What NGK spark plugs would be correct for a 1991"red box" turbo, mostly around town driving?
  2. 9-5 Workshop
    This is for a 2009 9-5 with 166k mi. Two weeks ago my car would crank but not start even with a jump. Had a new battery put in and all was good. Then we had that polar vortex and the car once again would not start when I was leaving work. Had it towed to the shop and they said once the charged...
  3. NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    Hi. I have three CEL codes P0444, P1312, and P1334 on my car. I have a 2001 9-3 SE. The 1312 and 1334 I have seen as being misfires in cylinders 1+2 and 3+4. I have also been told these two codes can be fixed by getting a new DIC. I have replaced my DIC 4 times with this car and these codes...
  4. NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    I have been trying to find out by searching, but I don't seem to be finding what I am looking for so.... I am a saab newbie but I have seen that we are only supposed to use ngk spark plugs. My car is a 02 9-3 se HOT. I am having intermittent misfire issues, so I pulled the plugs and they are...
  5. NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    Had the codes when I bought the car. Replaced plugs with new and installed new DIC then cleared the codes but finding they return after hour running. Also...I removed both seats to do some repair/servicing...thought I'd found one wire connector pair loose and clicked that together but now...
  6. NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    Hi guys, So I drive a 2000 9-3 SE Recently I noticed that my car was hesitating and it has had the codes listed below for quite some time. These codes point to a problem with the ignition cassette so I saved up the money for a Genuine Saab replacement cassette, as well as new spark plugs...
  7. 9-5 Workshop
    I apologize for the back story since I like to give you guys a detailed perspective! :D Hello everyone! Currently owning a 2000 Saab 9-5 V6 with 137k miles. I purchased it a couple weeks ago and I've been seeing my exhaust has been smoking a lot recently. Knowing the cold season is pulling in...
  8. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    I recently acquired a 2007 9-3 turbo from some friends. They were driving it and getting ready to sell it. They drove it home and parked it, and now it will not start. You can hear the fuel pump start when you turn the key, so I know that is working. The car will backfire, but does not run. We...
  9. 9-5 Workshop
    Today as I was just pulling into my parking spot at work my car suddenly died. I decided to try and start back up and it started just fine, but after only a second or two it died. I tried this again a couple times all with the same result. I then started it and promptly pumped the gas pedal. It...

    I just had a light tune up on my 92 turbo - plugs, wires, and distributor - and am now seeing much better response from the turbo. Seems strange since turbo function seems to me to be unrelated.... Is this common after a tune up?
  11. 9-5 Workshop
    Could someone send me in the right direction. I have a 01 Saab 9-5 SE with a 3.0 that has 146k on it. Recently just had head gaskets and valve cover gaskets replaced. Have probably only put about 150 miles on car since this was done and it has recently started to run really rough, sputters and...
  12. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Hi I just bought this car, 2004 9-3 aero, 140k miles. Already sunk over 2 grand in bringing it up to snuff. I just put in new ngk plugs, they're gapped properly, they are torqued down to 21 ft/lbs, the coil packs seem fine. Finished up, drove car around and it was driving much more smoothly...

  14. NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    Alright, so I'm going to replace the spark plugs on my NG900, which a stage 2 tune. Any ideas of what the best spark plugs are to use now? I'm not very knowledgable in the spark plug department
  15. 9-5 Workshop
    Okay, so got P1312 two months ago at right around 120,000 miles. Replaced the spark plugs as they were due. CEL went away, car was running better, better gas mileage and power. In the past two weeks, same code twice, have gone away on their own without me clearing them. The car still seems...
  16. C900 Performance, Mods & Tuning
    For a modified, high boost, '88 SPG with an oil and water cooled turbo. What is the best coolant? best engine oil (including viscosity)? and what are the best spark plugs? I know "best" is sorta relative...but what works well, what should I avoid? Thanks, AJ
  17. C900 Workshop
    So I'm replacing my spark plugs and I have been told its really important to get the right ones. The Bentley says NGK BCP7EV or NGK BCP7ES The Saabsite.com only has BCPR7ES11 (I'm assuming they are NGK's) or BCP6ES Partsforsaabs.com has NGK BCP7EVX for 1984-1993 Turbo 16 Valves but they have...
  18. 9-5 Workshop
    pep boys gave me NGK BCPR7EIX11 for my 2000 9-5 lpt. Seems to be running well (with a new DIC) for the past 6 months. It was the only NGK plug for the car. (@6.99ea) http://www.pepboys.com/catalog/partresult?category=11&group=2 Should I be concerned ?
  19. C900 Workshop
    Here is a picture of the plugs I just removed from my car. They are arranged in the order in which I removed them (1, 2, 3, 4). Notice anything strange? Can someone tell me what might be wrong with #2 and if I need to worry. They are NGK BCP7ES. I replaced them with NGK BCP6ES. I checked the...
  20. 9-5 Workshop
    Was accelerating my 2000 SE V6 Turbo pretty hard from a stop sign the other day and the engine started missing and I experienced loss of power and a slight shuddering (me and the car, haha). The check engine light immediately came on blinking, then stayed solid. I was able to continue driving...
