I'm struggling to restore the wiring of a 1989 non-turbo 900 manual hatchback to basic functionality - at least enough for it to drive under its own power. A friend *ahem* helped to get it running by doing a little cutting and dicing and bypassing of wires (the problem actually...
The fuel pump in my 99 9-3 OG just shit the bed. Is there a decent alternative to the $500+ OEM assembly? The car is at the mechanics waiting to be repaired in about a week. Thanks for the suggestions.
I have a 2003 9-3-344 and need a new fuel pump. I've been told that my car actually needs a 2004 fuel pump because it was built in the second half of the year.

This is a mystery to me but I hope not to one of you has been through it or knows the systems better than I. The problem: Intermittent No-Start while Cranking Normally.
Without warning and without pattern (that I've noticed) the 2002 9-5 will crank but not start. Normally it starts within 1-3...
1999 Saab 9-5 4cyl.

I am new to the Saab world, as a friend recently "donated" her 97 SAAB 900 se to help me out (previous car is dead as disco). The hitch is that this car doesn't run (yet) either, so here goes my first ever saab learning experience. So here's the rundown: She would start with starting...
For the Walbro 255, Bosch 040, etc. fuel pump conversion the correct rating for in-tank fuel hose is SAE 30R10.
NAPA sells hose in the correct diameter for OG 9-3's (and probably others), 5/16" (7.93 mm). Part number NBHH209 for 1 ft. It's not cheap.
