Saab QuestionsRefine by vehicle
I replaced car battery late in 2014. I had car repaired to fix erratic timing last month. Today car did not pass smog test. I had no fault indicator lights on the dash. Last repair was done et SAAB expert repair shop which now says to drive the car and (?) hope that it correct monitors. Last week end I drove the car for about 4 hours not knowing that I would fail test today.
Noise sounds like Wha Wha Wha...
at the same time i replaced the front o2 sensor because because it was throwing the code for it.now it is throwing the code for a camshaft pasition sensor . Do you think i should put the cheap plugs back in .I know you list several things it could be for that code . but do you think it could be the plugs since thats what i changed first and made it run rough.
The oil light goes on under 1200 RPMs while idling but, only when the car is warm. It also goes off in neutral. Is this most likely an oil sludge pick up screen/oil pan gunk problem?
Daughter's car on occasion will rev up in drive but won't move, like it stalls, but then will take off. Changed out the automatic transmission fluid, seemed to fix problem, but a week later same symptoms occurred.
Had the driver side door lock switch replaced and it still happens
The timing belt on a V-6, 3.0 engine traveled toward engine and became shredded and failed 30,000 miles after timing belt service. The engine had about 210,000 miles. What would cause the belt to travel ? There were no signs of pulley or tensioner issues, ie "no smoking gun". Could it be incorrect installation procedures ?
When letting off the gas? I don't have coolant in my oil and lost power. Going through oil and comes out exhaust. Would it be the head gasket or the piston rings
Is have the check engine on so i want to.know what is the sensor p1617
Upon starting the car we found both headlights, high & low beams not working. All fuses are ok, replaced both bulbs nothing. All other lights are working. ?????
have bought a 2005 9-3 linier 1.8t with 100k km on the dile.
first few month it felt like heaven to drive, and then shit hit the fan, and i spent a fortune on this car, and about to spend some more....
battery just died had to change it, and fuel pump before that,,, and now retention..
however its my recent issue that worries me... at some point last week the car had very funny idling while parked, it felt like it was choking, and wont even move properly,, only until i start driving then its all gone,,,,
the next day as i was driving on the highway on cruise control, the cruise control just died, i pressed the gas and realized that turbo was gone too, though i can still hear it whistling.
funny thing is once u restart the car its back on. till it dies again when ever it feels like it. and when turbo is down cruise control wont work.
when the turbo is down first gear barely works, i need to switch to tip tronic to get moment from the car...
and yesterday i noticed that when parked rev goes up a bit then drops over and over again...
that being a long story short....
so any opinions, ill appreciate the help....
and also any links to fixing soft tops would me helpful
Previously my car started stalling, slow acceleration, no power when I hit the gas, so I had it diagnosed and it state throttle sensor bad, I just replace the throttle unit, because my car lost acceleration power. Now that is in limp mode how do I return it to normal, so I can enjoy my car?
only when accelerating, my saab will begin to shake violently. Just bought the car yesterday, doesn't matter what gear I'm in, shaking still occurs. When I let off the gas, the shaking stops. Tires are fine, previous owner told me its a CV axle, but I've also read that's probably not the case... Please help!
been to service mechs no one can figure it out
Message"pull out key, turn steering wheel.Restart" appears. Cannot start car, accessories, other than the display, don't come on. Any ideas?
33,000 miles 97X ARC 5.3 Car was left for 9 months and not started. When I returned from long stay away I found a dead and a not reusable battery (1 year old). Put a new battery in and the car started fine but when I shut it off the blower motor stayed on.
Problem started suddenly. Windshield fogs down although I can hear the fan working at full speed - as well as changing speed. Seems like no air slips out. Tried diagnosing, got up a 02 code after some trial time. Tried again - and nothing. AC and computer is not in order - never has been in my time with this car. Can this be a mechanical problem like something falling down and blocking? OR - relay or fuse?
Replacing alternatorsoon is the blower motor and resistor
every time i take the key out of the car the window and sunroof automatically open on there own, and it will continue to try over and over please help
Lights but no sound
Lights but no sound???
regardless of how much fuel is in my tank the fuel gauge is constantly jumping from full to empty - the fuel light goes on when the gauge hits below the red zone then goes off when the gauge jumps up. sometimes it reads full even though the tank is not full. is it a fuel sensor issue ? what do I need to check or replace? nothing worse than driving a car and trying to guess how much gas I have left or if I will run out of gas. I already tried adding the fuel injection cleaner in the tank when filling the tank but it didn't help. any advice would be greatly appreciated.
For full front suspension and alignment, is $1300 a fair price? He showed me the knuckle of left front strut was split in 2, and right spring is broken.
sometimes wouldnt start unless i took out fuse ....put it back then it started(happened often). finally died while driving lost all power ....check engine light blinking
it has a pin and goes up and down when the roof goes up and down and it covers the hydraulic parts on either side of the roof.
