But it's a lot of small things that makes me angry about this car. They should rename it fail! We are working on a kit that will have all the parts you need to drop the head off at the local machine shop. First time car was in on complaint of front wheels out of alignment car pulls to the left all the time coasting, under acceleration, etc. Replacing your and preemptively, and putting a spare in your trunk could be old and used is pretty much the best insurance you can have to never be stranded in event of a breakdown. My 2007 Saab 9-3 Conv sounded like everything was about to fall out going over bumps.
Now maybe it's just me, but 250,000 miles is a trigger for not only my first one, but my fire engine red 1995 900S that 1 of my daughters is now driving is nearing 250,000 and the same things are starting to pop just like my 1985. After idling at a traffic light, it was difficult to accelerate. I continued with the scheduled check-ups. Dealer could not diagnose via computer; however I suggested a tech drove the car for a day or two. New cassette and plugs and it ran fine again. To change it, you need a to lock the gear in place. Your advice would be precious.
My 2007 Saab 9-3 Conv sounded like everything was about to fall out going over bumps. Later, about an hour, it would not start. I was also told that it may take up to two years before I could get it repaired under warranty I am pretty sure the part and repair from the manufacturer warranty would be out and the extended warranty would certainly be out as it expires in Aug 2012 or in 6000 miles. I'm a very frustrated consumer as this car puts my family at risk daily and Saab continues to say the car is fine. I told them of an oil smell, and they said it was a minor problem. Ran perfectly, seemingly pristine condition, prior to a very cold morning the other day with the no start. I have little faith that this will not happen again, without any warning.
The car ran fine until August 2006 when the first gearbox malfunction light was indicated with an inability for the automatic transmission to downshift. However they are not without their problems. I bought a 2010 9-3 2. I can't begin to explain the repairs I've put into this car. I have been driving it for almost 10 years.
But if the engine is racing, I would guess it has enough fuel. Issues started when I moved away from home. I went back in December, when the Saab had 3,000 miles, and they told me that they had to wait to recognize the warranty, because Saab declared bankruptcy, and to come back in January 2012. Being a wire, it takes some time for excessive current to burn it open. This version of Trionic 8 in this case differs from T5 and T7 because the ion sensing module is a separate unit instead of being built into the direct ignition cassette.
Are they all even or is there one cylinder that looks different? This is notorious for going bad and is a huge pain to do. The car has less than 50,000 miles on it, so the sudden failure of such a critical component is surprising and disconcerting. End of problem hope that this helps Ian. If you are seeing this message and are encountering other weird electrical issues, a fresh car battery may be the solution, as even a slight drop in voltage can cause weird things to happen with the electrical systems of these computerized cars. Their advice was to trade in the car. When driving, when I back off the gas the needle goes to the bottom of white, but when I stop and idle its about Midway.
Your solution is to simply drive north of the equator and it should read right ways up once you get into the northern hemisphere. You can still drive the car, it will just feel super weird until you get under there and replace the helper spring and associated clips. The way to test for a bad fuel pump is to crank the car and make sure you have power at the connector leading to the pump. It has saved me from bodily injury, if not my life on 2 occasions. Before I got to a place where I could stop the car it had pegged the temp gauge. Without any rhyme nor reason? I had one major problem that was not managed properly and required a new head at the cost of Saab dealership service. But someone has to step up and be the distributor.
Any ideas where to start??? Heater went out, again it was winter. The direct ignition module had burnt out suddenly, and smoke was seen coming out of the connector when I tried to start the car. Next morning back on and then out a day later. Also, the catalytic converters had to be replaced non-warranty after the ignition module recall. Before the heating problem, it was much lower in the white zone. We have two sets, one for and one for. Along with a throttle body then codes indicate engine computer model distinction but mechanic said those codes trigger each other.
