    Low Boost

    So sometime in the last few weeks, my '06 US 9-5 has lost a fairly significant amount of boost at WOT, and I'm at a bit of a loss as to where I should start looking for solutions. I don't know...

    I remember all the negative reviews of this re-style when it first came out, and I remember not really liking it very much myself, but it has aged extremely well. Someday I'll get that ragged front...

    2006 9-5 SportCombi

    Finally got my poor wagon cleaned off in time for the first wintery weather of the year, but luckily I got some glamor photos before the snow started to fly.

    I'll definitely keep those in mind for tomorrow! I limped it home last night after work and the one time I was able to get it on boost at all, there was a very strange whooshing sound. Before this...

    Very High Idle

    So, as in my previous thread about the weird hot-start issue, my Saab's CEL is on for, as far as I'm aware, the same P1181 code as the last few times it's come on. Now though, in both neutral and in...

    Since the CEL came back on while running errands last night, even though it started normally, I'll keep that in mind! Thanks for the tip!

    Dave, I appreciate your input but I seem to have found the main problem, which I didn't really think of until I checked the reservoir when the car had cooled; the level was simply low so I got some...

    Power Steering Fun

    So over the last week or so my '06 9-5 has developed a rather impressive groan from the power steering pump, usually going away after warmup, but this morning it kept groaning the entire way to work,...
