    I have severe vibration in the engine.. So bad my entire car shakes and exhaust does. Randomly it settles down to almost nothing, other times its severe and has no power. Misfiring, stalled once. Runs terrible at times and somewhat fine other times. Rpms are sticking for a few seconds longer...

    07 9-5 2.0t BioPower Auto.. So we had a storm here in Ireland the last few days, and whilst travelling at about 65 mph, I came down a hill to find a river of water running across the road. I was in a group of cars and we all hit it hard and without any warning. I felt the car get pulled to the...

  5. NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    Hi All, I just set of 4 brand new tires. I noticed vibration on steering wheel between 60-70 mph. Vibration is stronger when rolling in neutral. I will surely go back to tire shop and will ask them to check balancing. However, besides tires what could it be: engine mounts, axels? SAAB 900 SE...
  6. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Have a 9-3 i bought for $3k. Developed a vibration in the front end that sounds like something rapidly spinning against plastic, for lack of a better description. It vibrates through the steering wheel and pedals in the 1800-2200 RPM range in all gears. Took it in to the Saab tech. Two visits...

    An inexpensive way to restore the quality feel of your Saab :cheesy: My new to me Aero (162K miles) had significant vibrations at idle and stopped in traffic, so much so even the Wife noticed it. I bought the 3 easy to replace units (left engine, right transmission and bottom torque) and swapped...

  9. C900 Workshop
    Hi all, My c900 (auto) has a strong vibration when idling and at a stop in 'drive'. This will go away when placed in neutral or reverse. I initially thought it might be a bad engine mount, but when I took the car in for its roadworthy inspection, the mechanic (SAAB specialist) said it was a...
  10. 9-5 Workshop
    Hi, I recently (6 months ago) bought a 9-5 2002 model with about 120K to replace my old 9-5 1998 with approx 250K which still ran very smoothly but was falling apart interior etc. after a hard life. The new one has lots of power but is vibrating when taking off and idles a bit rough when put...
  11. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Dear Saab friends, My TX SC is running well, but has developed this unsettling noise sometimes when starting up. It is a medium pitched sound and associated vibration in the steering wheel, floor, dash. Earlier it went away after a few seconds to a minute after start, but yesterday the noise...
  12. 9-5 Workshop
    9-5 vector 2.3t auto estate 2003. I have a severe vibration that happens only when the engine is hot and coasting, as long as I have my foot on the accelerator she feels great. The longer I coast for the worse the vibes get. If I select neutral while coasting the vibes stop! I have changed all...
  13. 9-5 Workshop
    06 9-5 Sedan...I know I'll have to deal with the suspension bits in the next 15k miles, but in the meantime the Aero suspension combined with the horrible roads around here cause some serious vibration and rattle in the trunk and deck lid area. I'm hoping others have tackled the same issue at...
  14. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    I have a 9-3 2008 manual transmission convertible. About 2 months ago I was driving and something changed where I felt a vibration while accelerating. One could feel it while car was idle and there was a lower sounding hum to the engine. It would get worse at higher rpm so i start shifting...
  15. 9-5 Workshop
    This has been asked before here, and I've read multiple threads here and on other Saab forums, but without anything definitive other than "possibilities" like engine mounts, etc. So, here goes for the nth time by someone: My recently acquired 2006 9-5 sport/aero (85k miles, but great shape...

  17. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Hi Everyone, Last week I had my clutch, pressure plate, and slave cylinder replaced which, as I’m sure many of you know, is a pretty big job! Being that it’s a bit out of my league, I had my trusty mechanic tackle the job which required him removing the engine and pretty much the entire front...
  18. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Hey all, About a month ago I purchased a 2004 9-3 Linear, standard transmission, 90k miles. For about a week now there has been some engine vibration, and it seems to be getting stronger. There is not much external noise when I open up the hood, but when I sit in the car at idle, there is a...
  19. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Hello, So my "new" TXSC has been a pita, but at least the drive train seemed healthy. Now, after driving a few 100 km in a few weeks, I started noticing a "humming" sound or light vibration that's speed related, not rpm. It's barely noticeable, mostly between 70-110 kph. It's not felt in the...
