2006 Saab 9-3 Problems

Engine Coolant Loss and no Leak Noted

2.0L engines may become low on engine coolant with no cause found for the coolant loss. Our technicians tell us than in some cases the engine block may require replacement due to porosity.

Slow or Sluggish Gearshift Operation May be Noted

Slow or sluggish gearshift operation may be noted on vehicles equipped with a six speed manual transmission. Our technicians remind us it is important to ensure the correct Saab approved gear oil is used. Also, Saab has revised the fill capacity from 3 liters to 2.4 liters to help address this concern.

The Anti-Lock Brake System (ABS) and/or Traction Control Light May Illuminate

The anti-lock brake system (ABS) and/or traction control light may illuminate. This can be caused by corrosion in the (ABS) wire harness connector at the right front wheel speed sensor due to water intrusion.  Corroded connectors should be cleaned or replaced as necessary to correct this concern.
