  1. 99 & 90 Workshop
    Dear Fellow SAAB 99 owners: I am doing my best to spruce up my beautiful 1976 Topaz 4-door manual 99 GL. I discovered something a little odd yesterday, and wonder if someone knows something about this. There is a coolant line and a return line that has been added to the smaller (upper) side of...

    Alright im working on my 04 9-3. About 2 weeks ago I got put in limp mode for a p2138. iv read I think almost every post on here in regards to the code with no luck.

  4. NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    Hello - any & all help is much appreciated! None of the threads I have seen Anywhere (here, youtube, other Saab sites, etc) show pictures that look like my engine. They all say to 'Reset the throttle Body' - but mine doesn't look like what they show. I have attached pictures. I would also...
  5. NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    Hi. This is my first post and I've had a lot of help in the past from many members' previous experiences but I'm having a few problems now with my Saab 93 convertible. There's a little bit of oil which is always around the intake pipe at the throttle body. Also, the rpm sits at around 2000rpm...
  6. C900 Workshop
    So the wires leading to the throttle position sensor have corroded to the point that I can't even solder the wires reliably. The three prong plug connecting to the throttle position sensor works fine but the wires need to be replaced or fixed some how. The attached picture shows where the...
  7. NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    In the process of determining whether or not to replace the turbo. Took the air intake off of the throttle body and there is oil inside the manifold. What I want to find out, is if there is any other possible ways it could get up there if the turbo seals are not bad. Car only smokes, on...
  8. 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. The battery light comes on, the oil light comes on...
  9. 9-5 Workshop
    Hello! I recently purchased a 2003 9-5 Linear with 180k miles. The dealership replaced the fuel pump right before I bought it because they said it died when they started it. The check engine light came on shortly after I bought it (same day actually). Then I noticed when I was idle at a red...
  10. 9-5 Performance, Mods & Tuning
    I recently purchased all that was required so I could stage two my 2006 SAAB. I replaced the spark plugs, new filter, and a tuned ecu. However I have noticed know that after I step on the gas hard the car bogs down for a second and gets jerky and than continues to accelerate like nothing...
  11. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Hi all, About a year ago my 2006 Saab 9-3 convertible started jumping into limp mode. Reading the error code with an OBDII I found the error code P2138. This code suggest that there is something wrong with the gas pedal sensor. As I have no experience with doing any repairs myself, I dropped...
  12. 9-5 Workshop
    Hi all, I've had a search through the forums but couldn't find anything that directly applies to the problem I've got with my Mum's car. It's an '06 9-5, 2.3t. Recently, it's had a problem where it will intermittently become very sluggish, to the point where it's dangerous when pulling out...
  13. 9-5 Workshop
    Hi everyone, I'll try to keep this as short as I can, but I'm at a bit of a loss with my mother's '06 9-5 2.3t. Essentially, the problems started when the car developed a jumpy idle speed. When sitting at the lights (in drive), the idle would fluctuate between ~1250rpm and then dip very low...
  14. 9-5 Workshop
    Hi guys, Long time, no post! Hoping for some help with what must be a pretty common problem, though I'm struggling to find suitable threads - probably because the keywords are a bit generic! Car is a 2008 Aero automatic with 80K miles. Regularly serviced, no modifications - bog standard...
  15. 9-5 Workshop
    I hope someone can shed some light on this as I have no codes to go on. After about 5 to 10 minutes of the engine getting to operating temp, there is very poor throttle response. From a standing start it feels like I'm starting out on 3rd gear. It boosts but only to about 90 of boost range (as...
  16. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Hi, After suffering with blue smoke and ticking noises on start-up, which were intermittent initially, and regular after a few months, I decided to do a top end rebuild. I have a 56 plate 9-3 TID 150 bhp Sports Sedan. All has gone well, replaced broken rocker, replaced valve stem seals...
  17. NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop

  20. NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    Over the last couple days my 900SE Turbo started doing something weird. First off, it's a manual, so when I'm accelerating, like normal I go clutch-in/foot off gas, but when I do that the engine keeps revving even with my foot off the gas before dying down. Some times or more obvious than...
