Classic Saab 9-5 (MY 1998-2010) / Hot Box
« Last post by twosaabs on Today at 05:52:00 PM »
Last week we had a run around Holland and Belgium in the Aero Auto. The traffic in Belgium was quite vile, culminating in getting stuck trying to get round Ghent for a couple of hours. The auto box was starting to get a bit twitchy and jerky and telepathy suggets it was getting seriously hot. I'm putting her in for a fluid change (150,000 miles) which might do some good. It's fine on an ordinary run and fine using the paddles. Anybody any views? Apart from "don't go to Belgium" of course.

Do you know the exact fault? If the sensor was the crank position sensor then it will make the car run like a bag of nails, the ECU can deduce how to run without a CPS signal by taking a secondary signal from the pump but it will run very very rough. Without knowing the exact codes though I can't offer any real help.

The driver's seat of my 56 reg Aero has seen better days especially the base, which looks like it had a cigarette burn and poor repair.

So I was wondering that if I can get another seat cover from the same type of car, ideally from a passenger seat, can the leather cover be taken off the base and be swapped onto my driver's seat?

Thanks, at my indi today.
Faults with the pump, position sensor was one, cant remember the other, indi stated that he only see's these faults when the pump is RIP.
He thinks he could hear a boost leak when we revved the engine.
I suppose its the bike tube job.

The intercoolers on the diesels seem vulnerable to bulging and splitting.

Not just the diesels, I had the complete side of the intercooler blow off on an Aero. Major lack of boost.

Great, glad you got it sorted and for posting the conclusion  :)

I try Steve. Mind you having an over enthusiastic young black labrador keeps you fit, with long walks morning and night and anywhere in between if he gets the chance!! Friends nicknamed me whippet as I was much slimmer than them. Having said that I was a long distance runner from early teen till late twenties when fatherly duties took over. Ran for Norfolk and even carried Commonwealth Games batton for couple of miles before it went to NZ. Mind you I don't smoke, don't drink much alcohol (i'm normally driver) and don't eat any cr4p food (Mrs NJ is excellent cook. Holidays are also spent walking through the Scottish mountains and Highlands.

Suppose I'm pretty lucky to not have changed size much in 40 years.................excuse pictures but 42 years between them both - just thought am I supposed to put these kind of pictures up or are we supposed to be mysterious behind our avatars?? Mind you know one would recognise me now as no longer driving a Saab - lol.

I'm not that familiar with modern diesels, but black smoke suggests too much fuel, so unlikely to be a fuel problem.  Much more likely that you still have an air leak in the inlet system.  Check all the pipes and the intercooler itself between the airmass meter and the engine.  The intercoolers on the diesels seem vulnerable to bulging and splitting.

Hi, I've been through the wars with my 2.2 recently. I have 205k on the clock.
I had bad misfires under load and the tech2 pointed to the injector pump.
However, changing the fuel filter solved the problem, the filter was treacle black.

I then had a split inter-cooler hose, ok sorted that.

Now, while cruising at 75mph a gradual hill will trip-out the cruise control, Prior to tripping out she gets a bit juddery, like a slight miss-fire. Under load she is very smokey, black smoke. After several trip-outs of the cruise she goes into a limp mode which allows about 75-80 mph on the flat. A brief stop and restart has her back to nearly full power. I fitted a new air filter, no change.
Is this the fuel pump on the way out.

Sorted, tugged at the wires and it came to life, bad connection behind the boot trim.

Thanks for your help.
