  1. 9-5 Workshop
    This is one I can't seem to find an answer for. Lately when I start the car, if it hesitates just a bit to start (rpms drop for a sec for instance during starter firing), then randomly it will immediately engage Night Panel as it starts. This happens maybe once every 5-10 startups. The car...
  2. 9-5 Workshop
    First of all, greetings fellow saabists! I have had a weird issue a couple of days ago whilst checking my left stepper motor, when I move the key to ''ON'' I hear a brief click sound coming from outside the car, and when I start it up it revs up the first time but then it slightly revs again...
  3. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    I have a 2000 Saab 9-3 SE. Recently i replaced the DI cassette and it was running smooth for a month or so. Then I had a couple of random misfires, no CEL, so i looked at the MAF and air filter. MAF was clean, but i needed to replace the air filter. All done now and on start up it happened...
  4. 9-5 Workshop
    When I first start my 2004 9-5 wagon, it makes a weird ratcheting sound for about 30 seconds until it is warm. It then goes away and never really comes back until the next morning. The car has 115,000 miles. I am thinking some chain (timing chain?). Thanks for any help. I have posted a video...

  7. 9-5 Workshop
    99-V 9-5 2.3 eco estate 68k full history. Blue smoke on startup for about 3-4 secs, but not every time (70%). I bought this car over a year ago and have covered 15k. One owner from new and he had Saab dealer keep it overnight twice. He was told it was nothing to worry about but it might be some...
