  1. Is this conclusively a bad throttle body? REPAIRED!!

    9-5 Workshop
    We've taken our 2001 saab 9-5 SE 3.0T (lol) V6 on a seattle-to-LA road trip every year for a few years (2) perfectly fine. The third year, the car made it about 6-8 hours into oregon, started misfiring, and died shortly after. To make the story short, we rented a car to get to LA and I picked up...

    9-5 Workshop
    I have a P1230 code on my 2002 9-5 Aero -- dead throttle body. I opened up the electric motor side of the throttle body and all wiring insulation has crumbled to dust. Tried calling BBA Remain. (I've seen that recommended on some of the forums.) BBA said they currently have no rebuilds for...
  3. Stiff gas pedal and slow acceleration

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    I was in the middle of making my way back home when my gas pedal became extremely stiff out of nowhere and very slow acceleration at the top end of the rpm range. It will still go up to the top of the rpm range but it takes alot of force on the gas pedal. T7 9-3. What do you guys think? Throttle...
  4. Throttle body rebuild

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    Hi All, I have a 2001 9-3 which had a throttle body problem, intermittent jerking on acceleration, loss of power, stalling at idle etc. I replaced it with an old one from a 9-5 (that I knew wasn't perfect but it ran fine for a while) I opened up the old one and the wires all had the insulation...
  5. Throttle body rebuild?

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    Hi all, I have replaced the throttle body on my 9-3 with an old one I had hanging around. It works but not perfect. I started to pull the old one apart to see if I could fix it and found that the wires inside have nearly all got their insulation gone. Almost as though it had burned off but not...
  6. New turbo

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    Hello all, I just replaced the turbo in my 2002 9-3 2.0 which was no small feat for someone with a limited experience level btw. Anyway, I ran the car for about 15 mins and watched the smoke from the exhaust continue to pour out and check for any leaks. I noticed oil dripping from parts of the...
  7. 01 9-3 SE won't idle and bucks at 2000 RPM

    So I've been trying to get my CEL to turn off (P0101 - MAF sensor performance) for a good while. I changed out the MAF sensor, throttle body, and vacuum lines but it just won't turn off. The other day while I was entering the freeway, it suddenly started bucking at about 2100 RPM. I could...

    Noob With A Problem!! I just got my 03 Vert back from the shop for a oil light coming on as it would come down to idle. They replaced the oil pressure switch and it ran great for a day.

  17. 2004 9-5 Aero crappy throttle response

    9-5 Workshop
    I've been trying to diagnose rather laggy throttle response on my 2004 9-5 Aero. I had the TB off a couple months ago and cleaned it out, and I've also adjusted the throttle cable so it's taught while against the stop. I get full boost, but there is significant lag to throttle inputs at low...
