It hesitates on take off and wants to stall. Also giving me a diagnostic code that's something is wrong with the temperature.
Cylinder 2 is miss firing
I took to get a oil change and they said they couldn't service it because it had a oil leak
And there was oil in my tailpipe and it's burning white smoke
New battery but something running after key turned off. Tried to jump start and put new battery in but when key turned off and removed, clicking noise heard around fuse box under hood?
I want to know is there any coil relay for the pack
Problem appeared yesterday. Message says to make safe stop. Basically the car cannot be started.
Front drivers seat belt stuck and will not come out . Very p.o.ed at this along with all the other issues on this crap car.
Noise sounds like Wha Wha Wha...
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?
Had the driver side door lock switch replaced and it still happens
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?
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?
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?
Lights but no sound
Lights but no sound???
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.
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.
the car will shut off when it reaches drive temperature. It will start and idle smoothly until shut off and it will not start again until the engine has cooled off. It has a newer crank sensor in it, a new direct injection cassette, new battery, and I tested the voltage to make sure its not the alternator or voltage regulator. One thing I notice was that the radiator fan was not kicking on while it idles and not sure if that has anything to do with the problem. and last thing is that the computer is reading no codes so that's no help either. any ideas or direction would be extremely helpful. I am new to saabs.
