    saab 9000 new rear shocks but rock ride and big fuel consumption

    hello i bought new rear shocks and my back of the car when you test the absorbers of swing the back of the car it squeals .is it drop link bushes, anti roll bar bushes, arm bushes or end worn springs??when i replace used shocks original ones the car was the same stiff like rock,. maybe bad strut mounts

    so this strange saab-lancia anti roll design and bushes and no comment DI cassetes issues (they should use old stuff rotor and cap and cables),..changed 2 so far in half year (original ones) still hard crancks the car in 4 seconds time,.. and car stil have bad idles,.. cleaned IAC valve,.. car still coughs,..(maybe i should stick with old volvo 850 ) i dont know what is wrong,... but ironic car is fast runs like hell since we rebuild the turbine but coughs bad at idle

    please help me out i put in the car like 500 eur or more but still i must buy all new rear and front ARB bushes, new inner & outer tie-track rod end have in the car for future instalation ,..

    i wanted to sell the car or swaped but i change my mind when i put 500 EUR in the car without new winter tyres to come

    another thing is big fuel consumption,..(noticed on 3 fuel injector have something like grease ,and i think maybe leaks so looking for fuel injector seals up from 1993 and nobody sells them),.. when i fill the tank it shows 400 km,.. than suddenly 50 km ,.. or when you turn off the ignition switch,.. maybe lambda maybe crankshaft position sensor or throttle body position sensor,.. since my aero dont have MAF sensor ( air filter hose)

    so please give me some advice here nobody knows the car well and i dont have OBD 2 to test the check engine codes,.. maybe i should buy one but which one?

    i changed all new 4 brake discs and pads, new battery, new vacum hoses.Ordered new rear and front arb bushes, new pcv valve,new Gear Shift Lever Joint today from partsforsaab, need also new trottle p. sensor and i hope for great comfort ride

    Can you offer the year and model of your car, also the amount of road traveled.


    hello i bought new rear shocks and my back of the car when you test the absorbers of swing the back of the car it
    squeals.is it drop link bushes, anti roll bar bushes, arm bushes or end worn springs??when i replace used shocks original ones the car was the same stiff like rock,. maybe bad strut mounts

    No Strut mounts in the back, just the front. The car was a little stiff when new but not rock hard.

    so this strange saab-lancia anti roll design and bushes and no comment DI cassetes issues (they should use old stuff rotor and cap and cables),..changed 2 so far in half year (original ones) still hard crancks the car in 4 seconds time,.. and car stil have bad idles,.. cleaned IAC valve,.. car still coughs,..(maybe i should stick with old volvo 850 ) i dont know what is wrong,... but ironic car is fast runs like hell since we rebuild the turbine but coughs bad at idle

    Car should not consume new DI cassettes are you using dielectric grease when installing? Long crank could be bad crank sensor and or leaky fuel injectors, smell a lot of gas when starting? Assuming your car is 94+ if so you can hook up to a computer and do some diagnosis with free T5 suite software. Since you rebuilt your Turbine insure your base boost is set correctly and you are not over boosting which could cause engine damage.

    please help me out i put in the car like 500 eur or more but still i must buy all new rear and front ARB bushes, new inner & outer tie-track rod end have in the car for future instalation ,..

    I have owned 4 9k's and changed bushes on all of them. The cars have been in service quite a while and it's a maintenance item.

    i wanted to sell the car or swaped but i change my mind when i put 500 EUR in the car without new winter tyres to comeanother thing is big fuel consumption,..(noticed on 3 fuel injector have something like grease ,and i think maybe leaks so looking for fuel injector seals up from 1993 and nobody sells them),.. when i fill the tank it shows 400 km,.. than suddenly 50 km ,.. or when you turn off the ignition switch,.. maybe lambda maybe crankshaft position sensor or throttle body position sensor,.. since my aero dont have MAF sensor ( air filter hose)

    Again Fuel injectors, fuel pressure, one of the sensors etc...I see it's an Aero now should be T5 ECU and the free software shows you everything inside.

    so please give me some advice here nobody knows the car well and i dont have OBD 2 to test the check engine codes,.. maybe i should buy one but which one?

    T5 suite and a Can Buss adapter with a laptop you can live tune the car while you drive.

    i changed all new 4 brake discs and pads, new battery, new vacum hoses.Ordered new rear and front arb bushes, new pcv valve,new Gear Shift Lever Joint today from partsforsaab, need also new trottle p. sensor and i hope for great comfort ride

    Our Aero is a really fun and fast car to drive. My daughter will never give it up.
