  1. P0033 Error Code After Initial Fix

    I have a 2004 9-3. For a while my car was throwing the P0033 error code, usually on the highway when quickly accelerating and braking. I would lose boost power and my car would be very slow to accelerate. After searching for help on this forum, I managed to fix the problem by replacing the...
  2. Strange red wax-like substance in tire valve (2001 Saab 93)

    Wheels & Tires
    Hi everyone, I was doing my monthly tire pressure checkup today, and when I screwed off the valve cap on one of the tires I saw that the tire valve was plugged with a strange wax-like substance! Does anyone know what this is? It's preventing me from pumping the tires. The car - a 2001 Saab 93 -...
  3. Non-turbo PCV system

    C900 Workshop
    I've got a question about the PCV system on a 1990 900S. Looking at the black plastic nipple that is installed in the valve cover, there are two barbed hose attachment points. One is large and has a hose that runs to the throttle body upstream of the throttle plate. The other is small and has...

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

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    Ok. I give up. I've looked and can't find it. I've replace the one on my son's 2001 9-3. That was easy. Can't find that damn thing on mine. I did notice the manufacture date of my 9-3 is 04/98 if that matters. My 9-3 is a 5 speed manual and has the older 2.0T engine. Any help would be...

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    I currently own a Saab 1998 900 SE Turbo with an idling problem. After a few minutes of idling, the engine seems to "chug" every 15-20 seconds or so. Every once in a while, the entire car actually stall out. I have replaced the IAC valve and PCV nipple, as well as checked for vacuum leaks using...

    Hi everyone, whilst cleaning the EGR valve on my 2.2 TiD today I noticed that a vacuum pipe that runs close by was worn through. The pipe goes to a diaphragm type valve that is above the EGR and I was wondering what this valve does and where does the pipe run to/from? I have been having lots...
  16. diverter valve sound

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    Hello all, it's been kind of a joke between me and my audi-driving buddy, but i've been starting to wonder if my diverter valve's silly sounds are meant to be this way, or if it indicates a malfunction of sorts. when i let off the gas, the diverter valve makes a sound like a bird. since that...
  17. Exhaust Valve history Saab 99 and 900

    99 & 90 Workshop
    I have a 1976 99. We bought the car in 1999 and it was running hot and sometimes missing. Since we had a "good spare" head from a 1974 99 (new 1984 purchased from the dealer to replace the 1974's original head), we installed it on the 1976 99. Ran for 50K miles--still ran hot, btw. We were...
  18. Broken plastic heater valve tab

    C900 Workshop
    8So I have heard that a common thing to check when you're not getting heat is to see if the control rod has been dislodged from the plastic housing it's supposed to fit in. The problem I have with mine, however, is where the plastic housing has broken off the white plastic bit that is attached...

What is that all about? I haven't found any evidence of my 92 car having anything other than the regular setup (and...
