  1. 2.0T Engine Almost Dies on Startup?

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    This started happening about 2 or 3 years ago at roughly 110k miles. Basically, 1 out of 10 starts would kick the engine on, then almost stall and fluctuate to regular rpm until it stabilizes after like 15 seconds. These days at 142k, it's 1 out of 4 starts that this happens, only remember 2...

  4. Cut and Disconnected Hoses

    9-5 Workshop
    I recently bought a 1999 Saab 9-5 2.3 for next to nothing. Runs, drives, but stalls or falls into low RPMs while idling. I'm throwing two codes, but only one that's truly serious for the time being. It's P0300 a misfire code as it reads on the scanner. I checked my plugs and they're all good...
  5. 900 V6 stalling issue?

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    My 1995 900 SE convertible (automatic) is having a stalling issue. Mostly when I start it it runs fine then I'll stop go into a store or something come back out start it again and it'll make a repeated revving noise and eventually stalls out.

    C900 Workshop
    Hello guys, I have a '93 900 S 2.1 with running/idling issues. On cold start it starts and idles normally but after hard driving, or highway driving it will have an erratic idle and sometimes die completely. The issue doesn't come up on steady state cruising and I've driven for hours on the...

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    Hello, I just joined to try and figure out what is going wrong with my saab. It is a '95 Saab 900 (2.3L non-turbo) with a manual transmission. The problem I am having is that I cannot get the car to drive up my driveway (about 15 degree slope I think) It will stall no matter what I do. I just...
  8. Rough Idle/Poor Performance Still Not Solved

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    My 03 vector with an 04 engine in it is intermittently having a rough idle that in some cases the car will stall completely. Currently, i have a CEL for a random intermittent misfire and have had a lean code before as well. The acceleration is sub par and i get engine stumbles. The one confusing...
  9. 9-5 Stalling after 10 seconds, Turbo just replaced

    9-5 Workshop
    I replaced a blown turbo on my 2000 9-5, got it running and burned out all the smoke AND got it out of Limp Home Mode. Now when I start it (it sounds great) but at 10 seconds it will sputter and die quickly. If I try starting 20+ times it sometimes will fight the sputter and I can get it moving...

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    Hi! Please take a minute to give me your thoughts on this problem that is keeping me from driving. My 1998 Saab 900S Turbo stalls on surface streets. This could be something simple.

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    Please help us solve this mystery! My 1998 Saab 900S Turbo stalls too frequently for me to drive it to work daily. Problem started nine months ago. Two different repair shops (one an indy specialist) have had their way with it since then, to no avail ($$$$). They have each told us they are...

  13. 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...
  14. Help! Weird stalling problem

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    My 1998 900S was idling for about ten minutes and it stalled. The engine didn't shudder or make any weird noise. It just turned off. I could not get the engine started again.

    I'm having problems with my 1991 Saab 9000 Turbo. For a while when driving it would randomly shut off all the electronics (radio, gauges, HVAC, ect) and then they would start back after a second or two. Then it would totally shut off while driving and would usually start back up, but then it...
