Having problems with your Saab 9 3 ?
2000 saab 93. Slow acceleration out of gears, especially first.
\015 I can get up to speed and drive on highway, but it seems to getting worse as I release the clutch in first. It changes gears just fine, but when I accelerate it revs without accelerating\015
Car picks up speed if you accelerate slowly, but the engine races, with minimal speed increase of the vehicle, when the throttle pedal is pushed harder?\015\012\015\012I'm not aware of the typical layout of the Saab, so while these things below are what I would suggest you look at... Not all will apply.\015\012\015\012Note that if the clutch plate is worn or otherwise slipping, the more you race the engine, the sooner will you burn off any remaining clutch life. Take things easy 'till you have a solution.....\015\012\015\012On any vehicle, this is a classic sign of a worn, damaged, or out of adjustment clutch.\015\012Or\015\012Possibly oil contamination from a leaking crankshaft rear oil seal. It causes a glaze on the linings of the driven plate and loses friction.\015\012Or\015\012The clutch pedal is not returning to it's normal rest position when released. Check for objects trapped between the pedal and the vehicle surfaces.\015\012Or \015\012The cable (if used)may be binding, thus the clutch doesn't fully return.\015\012It may be out of adjustment. Check for adjusting points at the cable ends. If no slack exists in the cable, it appears as though the clutch is worn.\015\012The clutch may be self adjusting. It's possible for self adjusters to seize.\015\012Or\015\012The hydraulic system (if used),has sticking cylinders. You may be able to clean and reuse the cylinders....
