  1. Throttle Position Sensor Screw size???

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    Anyone know what size the bolt is or the bolt part number? I know it's long and thin but it's missing both. Hence, it disconnected and it's taped together for now. I don't have a garage at my apartment so I don't have random bolts hanging around. Thanks,

    Hi I recently did some work to my 2007 Saab 9-7x. 5.3 v8, 118-000 km. I was receiving a code for the Throttle Positioning sensor (TPS) being Off. Check Engine light On. No other codes at the time. After some reading, and my mechanics advice to remove the throttle body and cleaning it to see...

  5. 98' 900S dies at idle just after start

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    My 900s often takes a half dozen or so turns of the key to get started and running. It immediately starts, but then only runs for a couple seconds and then dies. I'm thinking this may be a fuel pump issue or TPS? Once it starts and stays running for a minute or so it's fine for the rest of the...

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
