    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    Hello everyone, I was driving my 2002 Saab 9-3 2.0 convertible, I accelerated fast and heard a loud popping noise, it sounded like it came from under the car. However after that I got a code P1300 (Torque limitation low). While accelerating my turbo gauge went up to the redline and check engine...
  2. Couldn't figure out broken distance sensor

    9-5 Workshop
    Hi. I have a 2001 2.3 Turbo Aero car. I have "PARK ASSIST FAILURE" message on SID. I am trying to figure out broken sensor. I have a ELM327 clone and Android Torque pro app and for this, I have tried to read fault codes but nothing has been returned. I have tried with some other apps but the...
  3. Proper torque for rear motor mount bolts to subframe?

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    I just attempted to replace the rear motor mount on my manual transmission 2002 9-3. (For those curious: yes, it's a bit more challenging than the front engine mount or the transmission mount, but definitely a DIY job with a bit of patience. Helps to have a really long extension bar for your...
  4. SMOG Check - Which readiness monitors?

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Hi everyone, This might be a silly question. I need to clear a Californian smog check, but I have continuously problems with a P2138 error code (check the threads here). As a consequence, I need to clear the fault codes frequently because the car goes to Limp Home Mode. Doing so, I also clear...
  5. OBD2 Reader not getting codes

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    I have scanned my Saab 9-3 2000 with a few apps using a bluetooth OBD2 reader and can't get any error codes, it works for revs etc but can't read codes, am I missing something? Torque is good, just just loads when I scan for codes, does it take a long time, has anyone else had success?
  6. Can you run a spec clutch plate with stock pressure plate?

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Title says it all. I need just a little extra torque holding for my stage 3 linear with 275ft/lbs of torque. My current clutch is from the factory with 192K miles on it and it will hold sometimes... sometimes its a smoke show though so I wanna try a new OEM clutch kit with new flywheel and throw...
  7. Torque Steer

    9-5 Performance, Mods & Tuning
    How significant is torque steer 'normal' highway driving conditions (40-80 range) ? EDIT: How significant is torque steer after stage 3-4 tune in 'normal' highway driving conditions (40 to 80 range) ? Noticeable ? Also, is it possible to give the steering wheel a more weighted 'feel' ?
  8. Perforated Disc on crank

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    Hey Everybody, I am planning my reassembly and I can not find the torque for the bolts holding on the perforated disc. It is the part in step 2 here: Would these bolts fall into the "Other Bolts" in the...
  9. Auto shifting pattern after tuning

    9-5 Performance, Mods & Tuning
    Hi, I have a question on tuning. I very much like to rely on the torque factor rather than power when driving. (I dislike the downshifting when increasing throttle while already accellerating inside or near max torque rpm range.) Before I go to BSR (Stage E85+Sport flow) with my '03 2,3t auto...

    9-5 Workshop
    After removing 3 broken exhaust manifold studs on my '99 9-5, Does anyone have the correct tightening spec?
  11. Maximum torque on Sensonic clutch

    NG900 & OG9-3 Performance, Mods & Tuning
    My Saab currently suffers from a leaked head-gasket. I'm planning to let this fixed. While letting this fixed, it might be the right time to replace my stock turbocharger with a bigger one. My current turbo has been working for over 250.000km, so I don't expect it to run much longer. (especially...
