Forum rules

When you put a new thread up in the Workshop please put your car's year and model in the post subject/thread title, along with just a brief indicator of the problem.

Car Year - Car Model: Brief description of issue. EXAMPLE- 1999 9-3. Problems starting when hot.

For Tech II issues or help requests please state the following in your title ''Tech 2 help required - state issue and your location ''.

Please also add as much information as you can about the problem, to your post.

This will help us to help you, without having to ask basic details such as what car you have.

Threads with non-compliant titles will be moved to The Pit Lane (in which no replies can be posted, but the OP can edit the thread - upon which the thread will be released to the workshop forum, note compliant threads will be moved back when the mod/admin team next visit the Pit Lane. if your thread has been sat in the Pit Lane for 24hrs+ after editing, pm Tech II to request release)

Nb. Generic thread titles for truly generic issues that genuinely are not model or variant specific (such as "how do I change the spring in an forge wastegate actuator") are acceptable

**The first 5 posts for new users require individual moderator approval (which they will only get it if they are in line the rules of the forum). Please be patient and allow time for that to happen, and avoid duplicate postings.**

Hi guys I’m new to Saab but really loving it so far after having BMWs for the last 10years . Ok so the problems I have so far is as follows

The clutch ( I was told was new about a month ago )
Slips in 3rd/4th etc but feels ok in 1st and 2nd .
The pedal has normal biting point etc but at the floor has a very slight spongy/ spring feel ?? about a inch worth I thought this maybe because it was overfilled so I checked it and it was above the line so I removed some and is now at correct level but no change ?

Totally unrelated

The car seems to take a few turns to start in the morning ( 8 secs max ) and I’m getting pretty poor mpg . When I got the car it was owned by a old bloke who just popped to his local shop and back in it for a few years so I thought it maybe a blocked EGR so I booted it a couple times and it has improved but not as much as I’d hoped for I was getting about 22mpg now about 33.7 ?

No warning lights on dash etc

Any help would be very much appreciated please guys :wall:
