  1. NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    Hi everyone, Just picked up a 1998 900S and enjoyed the experience for about a month until... The engine started dieing at idle with the clutch in while stopped at lights (just after warmup, a couple of kilometres from the house). It would restart straight away initially, but after a couple of...

  3. 9000 Workshop
    My car is a 1994 9000cse 2.3 fpt with an Aero 5 speed swap. I was on my way down the highway when my I started losing speed and gave it a little more gas and then the boost gauge read full boost but my rpms were still low. Right after that I put the car in neutral and it stalled. I put it in...
  4. NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    When I get out on the highway occasionally the engine will just shut down. I can shift it into neutral and restart. On a 2 hour trip it may happen anywhere from 0 to 5 times. Has never happened with city driving. thanks

    Cam Position Sensor??? Hi all, Just got a 2002 93 SE a few days ago. Was driving along fine this morning, then I pushed the throttle to pass a car, and NOTHING happened. I was able to drive at cruising speed, but couldn't accelerate when I stepped on it. I did this for probably 1/2 to 1...
  7. NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    My wife's 01 Saab 93 SE Automatic has developed a slight problem that I'm trying to track down the cause. When she brakes heavily and comes to a complete stop, the engine stumbles as if it is going to die and then struggles a bit as if it might stall and then comes back to life. Any idea...
  8. 9-5 Workshop
    I have a 2000 9-5 V6 Wagon. I have a surging problem and here are the details. Surge starts to happen only after the engine gets to normal operating temps. Fuel pump replaced 2 years ago. Spark plugs only have about 4k miles on them. Car doesn't stall at lights when the symptoms are present...

    I own a 1999 Saab 9-3 with 124k miles. I got caught in a bad storm and ended up driving my car through a flooded road. The water was way too deep and my car died instantly. I pushed my car out and let it dry. Now when i start my car it idles at around 600 RPM. Way too low. And sometimes itll...
  10. 9-5 Workshop
    Alright guys, here's the deal: I have searched and have found some useful data but have tried it all and nothing has worked so I figured I'd toss it out to all of you. I bought my 01 9-5 in March of 2008 with 135k miles on it. It now has 142k. This is my first saab, previously I have driven...
  11. 9-5 Workshop
    Hey all, please help with problem on my 99 9-5 V6 3.0 (150k kms). Had radiator/oil cooler/oxygen sensors/cat-back replaced last year. I know there have been a number of related posts to the oil cooler issue, but it feels like several things are going on here, including some underlying problem...
