    Hello everyone, I have a 2009 Saab 9-3 2.8 with XWD. My car has been tuned to Stage 2 by Brian at Vtuner and I cannot figure out what my issue is for the life of me.

  3. Help with 2006 Saab 9-3 2.0t

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    So about 2 weeks ago I bought a 2006 Saab 9-3 2.0T. Checking it about, everything ran great, it ran smooth, nice A/C, etc. Well not even 4 days after owning it the traction control failure warning came on twice and the clock reset itself and it was just acting weird. Upon research it sounded...

  6. Random stalling at idle?

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    I just completed a clutch replacement this month and replaced engine oil while I was down there. Car's driving wonderfully but every once in awhile when idling it will turn off. It doesn't really stutter or stumble (maybe the tiniest bit). It'll be idling right below 1k (I don't know where...
  7. 1998 900 SE Idling/Shut-off Problem

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    I currently own a Saab 1998 900 SE Turbo with an idling problem. After a few minutes of idling, the engine seems to "chug" every 15-20 seconds or so. Every once in a while, the entire car actually stall out. I have replaced the IAC valve and PCV nipple, as well as checked for vacuum leaks using...
  8. Stalling Problem

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    I have a 96 Saab 900 SE Turbo, as we all know it had lots of little issues and the most recent one to stump me is an issue of stalling. My Saab stalls when I clutch but only if my foot has been off the gas long enough for the engine and turbo to relax a little. It also has a greater chance of...

  11. Engine stalls when applying brakes

    9-5 Workshop
    Hi there, I've done a couple of searches but I'm really stuck as to what's making my lovely Saab 9-5 2-0t Automatic (2004) stall when brakes are applied. My first notion was that the Cranckshaft Position Sensor was screwed (again), but the symptoms are different this time around. The...
  12. Window suddenly not working

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    This morning the power window on the passenger side decides not to work anymore. It was lifting it up, it goes 1/3 of the way and stalls. I hit the down button and it expressed down and stays. The passenger door lock still works however.
  13. An update...

    C900 Workshop
    ...so after figuring out that it was NOT the head gasket and getting it put back together, it fired right up. There's a video of it starting and idling on my facebook, but it's not public unfortunately. It idles great, 850-900 RPM (guessing, sorry I'm used to a Honda tach where every 100 RPMs...

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop

For the past three weeks, however, we have had issues that seem to keep compounding. It all began... Husband smells antifreeze outside of...

    Hi, Have a 1999 2.0 9-3 vert which started to slightly hesitate under light acceleration (or rather throttle lift off and then light re-apply) in 5th on motorway -didn't think much of it to start with -just thought maybe revs were a little low and maybe I should have changed down!

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    My 2006 (80K miles) Saab 9-3 typically idles at 900 RPM smoothly. Recently it has been sporadically dropping to 600 RPM at stops (but sometimes it stays at 900). Over the last couple of days on two occasions, the drop to 600 nearly caused the engine to stall but the engine "caught" the stall...

    My 900S has started to stall when pulling up at lights and when driving "off the throttle". I can also reproduce this behaviour by starting the car from cold and leaving it running at idle for 20 minutes! Any ideas where to start?
