Question about 2008 Saab 9-3

Open Question

2006 Saab 93 SportCombi 2.0 t with 32k miles. I just bought it 2 months ago. The check engine light comes on everyday! I'm in sales so I am driving it most of the day. It puts the car into limp mode EVERYDAY!! After it sits with the keys out, most of the time it comes out of limp mode. I took it to a Saab garage (not a dealer) that has worked on saabs for 25 years. They put the scope on it and said that the electric trottle control shows that it went out of parameter. They clear it and Im good for another day, then back into limp mode again!! I googled and found that many people had egr problems. The Saab garage said that they could replace throttle unit, but that may not be it. I'm told that the part is $565.00. PLEASE HELP!! What should I do????

Good chance it's the plastic coupling linking the rear heater area and the front of the truck. It's a small Y-coupling. Breaks and leaks all the time. Easily exposed to everything, like snow and ice kicking up.

SOURCE: Saab 900 auto with "Check gearbox" light

Hello. I had the same problem when the Check Gearbox light came on, it would be very sluggish. It turned out to be a small sensor in the transmission that lets the car know what gear it is in. It started to go out slowly and only sometimes would send the information.

Engine won't go over 5-10 MPH


You need to take the car to the dealer, because you need to recalibrate the electric throttle body with a TECH 2 Scanner, because the system went into a Limp mode.

2006 subaru forester burning oil


never-- I repeat never --use a used car dealer to do repairs on your car
The people employed are seldom qualified mechanics and they only know how to "bodgie" jobs just to get the car ready for a sale
oil will not leak from a head if the engine is running well , but oil will leak from faulty rocker cover gaskets
from your description, I suspect that when the car went in for the head gaskets a clapped out motor was fitted instead ( check engine numbers on the papers )
If you need a motor , there are plenty of good engines from japanese
engine importers
But at best do not have anything to do with that shop as the engine rebuild could be changing the engine back for your original motor

2004 Saab 9-3 Aero. replaced fuel pump aprox four month ago ( @ Aprox 100,000 miles), the last two fuel fills I have smelt gasoline in and around car (no visable leaks). Check engine light came on 1 week...


While a fuel filter won't normally cause the check engine light, it could cause other errors that would trigger the error light to come on.

Since fuel filters are easy to change and not very expensive, I would change it and see would happens. But you might also want to run a pressure test on your fuel pump also.
