  1. NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    Wading thru the hundreds of posts on here about this, because it happened today. I'll continue to scroll thru for a possible solution, but figured I'll post the symptoms. (1997 900SE 2.0t, 5 speed vert. 137k miles. Purchased 2 months ago. Very clean, service docs, ran smoothly.) When I first...
  2. 9-5 Workshop
    I have a saab 9.5 2002 and if the engine gets hot it wont start for between 30 and 90min. When driving cold it pretty much always missfires once or twice when cruising. I have no idea what creates this problem although it seems like the coolant gets mixed with the engine oil, can this be the cause?

    So I was on my way to lunch today, drove out of the parking lot and then out of nowhere, the car suddenly died. I tried starting it, and it did once for a few seconds, then died again. After that, it would crank, but would not start. I checked the codes and they were "the usual" for this car...

    Hi, After driving for a while and then stopping the engine, when try to start again after few minutes or 30 min, the engine will crank , the engine is starting for 0.5 sec then dies. It will always start after few more tries (usually 2 to 5 tries). No dashboard messages, no check engine , no...

    Last 2 weeks could hear a slight squeak at start up, that would go away once I was driving. I figured it was a belt slip and no biggie. Today car wont start. Lights work, radio ect. Turning it all off and no start. When I turn the ignition i hear two clicks and that's all, no attempt to...

    I've been having some crazy issues with my 2003 9-5 V6 3.0, and it seems like every time I fix something, three more problems pop up. We are moving this weekend and I'm freaking out because I can't get the car started. This may be long, but I don't want to leave anything out. Thank you in...

    My 2002 95 occasionally will not start. I have gone for a couple of weeks now with no problem till a couple of days ago. The car is not hot, has not been driven for several hours. I open the door and the interior lights do not come on, bad sign. I turn the key, nothing, not a sound. I try...

    I recently acquired a 2007 9-3 turbo from some friends. They were driving it and getting ready to sell it. They drove it home and parked it, and now it will not start. You can hear the fuel pump start when you turn the key, so I know that is working. The car will backfire, but does not run. We...
  9. 9-5 Workshop
    Greetings, this is my first time posting and aren't even sure if I posted in the correct thread, so forgive me if I didn't. I have a 2001 9-5 and was just working on replacing a headlight bulb. I replaced bulb, it still didn't work, so I checked the fuses. Now the car will not start and I am at...

    2001 9-3 Viggen Yesterday I came to a stop sign yesterday and the engine sputtered. I gave it gas to keep it from stalling but that didn't work. It wouldn't re-start and I had to get it towed. The engine sounds like it wants to start but doesn't turn over. There were no symptoms leading up...

    I have a 2001 9-5 V6 Wagon that shuts down with an exclamation mark showing the battery and oil icons on the dash. I've recently changed the oil and changed it again thinking it may be a bad oil filter causing the low oil pressure to come on. I have also replaced the belt and battery in the...

    Hi everyone, I have a 02 Saab 9-3 w/ the 2.0. I started the car the other day and got out closing the door and let it run for about 5 mins. When I got back to the door and opened it the car shut off. Then all the car would do is turn over acting like there was no spark. I'm lost on this one...

    Hello, I am extremely new to the Saab world, so forgive me if I sound ignorant, but I read through the faq and didn't find my issue. I am so new to the Saab world in fact, that on the way home from purchasing my new/first Saab I stopped to get gas and upon leaving the station my car will not...

    I just purchased a 2001 Saab 9-3 Turbo 5-Door and accidentally "immobilized" it. I was foolishly testing the sunroof with the key in the ON position (engine was not running) and when I finally tried to start the engine, it did not start. I assumed I had worn down the battery, so I moved the key...

    Hi guys, I have a 2001 9-5 V6 SE with 144k miles. Here is my problem: I drove from campus to walmart this afternoon and everything was fine. Half an hour later when I left for home, I felt a shake when I got onto the highway. After that the car seemed to lose strength: I pushed the accelerator...

    Hey fellow enthusiasts, Here's my dilemma: My 1999 Saab 9-3 will not start or even try to start. I have lights, interior and headlights. I have a one-month-old battery, straight outta Advance Auto. When I turn the key... nothing. I don't even think it clicks. The alarm lights and...

  20. 9-5 Workshop
    Hello everybody. My 2001 9-5 SE is suffering from the all too common intermittent starting problem. When I turn the key to start the car, all my interior lights and radio come on and I hear an electrical humming noise (I'm guessing it's the fuel pump priming) but the engine won't crank and the...
