200 Saab 93 S series Consistent Break Down

I have a Saab 93 S Series convertible.
Each time I take it out, depending on the length of time I have driven it, when I go to re-start it, it will not start.
All power is off like the battery is dead, but it is not the battery.
It could take 15 mins to hours and then it will re-start.
I have had battery replaced, the kick plate (?) ...I think this is what its called, replaced as I was told that was over heating...and it is now still doing it...

    Hi,
    Thanks for your reply.
    My Saab has clocked over 260,000 kms.
    Why?
    Cheers

    Hi again,
    Can you explain what the electronic relay is as I had a plate replaced that sits on the top part of the engine, or near to it!!?? last November and that sounds familiar.
    cheers,

For a older car like yours, sometime sick just like an older people like me. Car is different, if you can find the reason why cause this kind problem, as soon as you fix it, it will run for a while, but it is not easy, I think when you drive for a while, the engine is hot, the ring on the piston expanded, that’s cause the engine stalled, after 10 to 15 minutes, the engine cool down, it will start and drive a short wait until the engine getting hot, it will stall again.

How do you solve this problem, go to junk yard and find a low mileage engine put in or rebuild your engine.

Hope this can help.

    Hi Lushes,

    Sorry I didn't reply you sooner, because I was too busy and forgot read my emails.



    Electronic relay for older cars looks like a 2” x 3” black iron box with a relay inside, sometimes overheat can cause the engine stall. I remember I only had one case when I had my Union Oil Service station.

    Best wishes

Saab 93 convertable, Rain water fills the drivers footwell when the car is parked downhill.


I am not sure if it is the same problem I had with my '04 93 SS, but there is a cabin air filter that has a drain next to it that allows the rain water to run down to the ground. Mine was clogged up with leaves and other junk which caused the rain water to leak through the filter into the cabin. Being that yours is a different body style, your filter may be on the drivers side which would cause this. I would try to look up where your Cabin Air Filter is and try to clean the drain.

Check engine light Saab 05 93 Linear


Take the car to a local auto parts place and they should be able to scan the computer and give you the code that triggered your check engine light. Most places will run this scan for free. Even if your Saab appears to be running fine it is prudent to have this checked to avoid a sudden break down. I hope this helps. Good luck.

2001 saab 93 convertible top problem


If you lower the back seat you will see a plastic cover on the botom of the opening. Remove the cover (6 appolstry fasteners) to reveal a metal box. The box is not actually a box but a cover for the hydrolic pump. Remove the fscrews from the lid and lift. The resevouar is clear and easy to check against the two fill lines on the side.

93 convertible top wont go down


This happenrd to me the first few times after filling the tank. When the roof stops push the switch to up then back until movement stops then go back to down, eventually it will get rid of all the air in the system and the roof should start to work.

Saab 93 convertible roof won't open


Your tonneau motor is probably bad, though reprogramming the limits may fix it. You will need the factory tool, unfortunately. There is a lot of information on this webpage. Be sure to read the information relating to updates on 1995 models.
