  1. 2007 Aero 2.8t engine skipping/bucking

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Hi all, first post here. Starting last year, my 2.8 started to slightly buck sometimes when driving. Brought it to Saab, and they told me to wait until it throws a code. One year later, it is getting much more serious, and is bucking very hard at idle and between 2,000, and 2,500 RPMs. One thing...

  3. A/C Console Dark

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    Hello, all, long time lurker, first time poster. I'm a severe amateur, but this one is driving me nuts. About a year ago, I had my (now ex-) girlfriend's brother work on the 2002 Saab 9-3 that she gave me. He is a mechanic at... a chain, but unfortunately, he hated working on Saabs so much...
  4. Coolant temp issue

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    I've recently started having some issues with my temperature gauge. I've read plenty of instances where folks have replaced the thermostat and/or coolant temperature sensor and plan on replacing both soon since it is a relatively low-cost repair. I am curious about the problem though as from...
  5. A real mist-ery!

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    We have a 93e conv. and for the first 10-12 miles of a trip it runs perfectly. Then the engine temp dial needle drops like a rock and mist - highly humid air - comes into the cabin and needs a window to be opened quickly to clear it. If you stop, just for an instant and turn off the engine...
  6. Engine Overheated-Upper Radiator Hose Split-Temp Gauge Plunged! PLEASE HELP!

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    Hey guys. After 2 hours of intense Philadelphia traffic yesterday from 4 to 6, I had began my leisurely 30 minute ride back home on the highway. Cruising along at 70. Suddenly, I noticed my Temperature Gauge was all the way up at high, so I drove about a mile until I could pull off. As I...
  7. Strange A/C Issue

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    Lately my A/C has been cutting out while driving on the highway. When it happens the temperature gauge goes from its normal "9 o'clock" position to not even registering. If I pull over, shut down the car, and restart the A/C works but the temperature gauge will only register slightly above the...

  9. Clutch does not work in hot weather

    C900 Workshop
    I have an 1989 Saab 900 Turbo, 178000 miles, original clutch. The clutch pedal is perfectly firm and high when the temperature is cool or cold. But in summertime, when the temperature goes above 80F, the clutch pedal engages only when it is pushed right to the floor. If I leave the car...
  10. Climate Control Fan Question

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    2000 9-3 Viggen So, I think there is a Fan that sucks in air from the Dashboard that lets the computer know what the inside temperature of the car is. Basically, I'm wondering what that part is called and if there is a way to fix it. It has started making a clicking / ticking sound and it...
  11. Silly SID (what a kidder!)

    9-5 Workshop
    My SID always seems to think that it's 122 degrees F outside. I live in north-central we know that can't be possible!! Is this a quick fix or something I need to take to the dealer and pay some money for?
