  1. p0300 set at cold start idle while engine surges

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Ok so I know this p0300 code has been gone over hundreds of times. I have searched and have not found anything that matches my issue. I have a p0300 code that I have reset multiple times. It keeps coming back every time the outside temp drops below about 40 deg.F. when this happens is when I...
  2. Help me love my Saab!

    9-5 Workshop
    TLDR: 2008 95 Aero has rough idle and weak turbo boost. Okay guys, I'm going to be honest here. I'm a single young gal who has no clue about cars. My dad gave me his Saab a couple of years ago. It's a 2008 95 Aero wagon, now at about 93,000 miles, with a turbo engine and a little "sport" button...
  3. Rough idle? P2135 and P1681 codes? Hesistation? Surging? How I fixed it.

  5. 9-5 Surging While Idling in Gear

    9-5 Workshop
    Hey Everyone, I'm a complete Saab newbie, just bought a used 1999 9-5 2.3t, and in general I love it so far. The one problem is that when I first start it up and put it into gear (drive or reverse) it seems to surge, then slow, then surge again and so on. It also starts doing it when stopped at...
  6. P0101 Code, replaced MAF, still surging.

    9-5 Workshop
    This is the first time I have posted a question, so I will try to keep it brief. Car surges occasionally when at a stop light, turbo boost gauge with move up and down and so will the revs, the car will try to lunge forward if I let off the brake. Trying to correct his problem I purchased a...
