Sport Mode Funk

135

Asked by Jun 05, 2010 at 02:11 AM about the 2003 Saab 9-5 Aero

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have an 03 Aero. When I'm in Sport mode and accelerate hard, the car seems to buck when speeding up. It feels like the car is twitching when this happens. This ONLY happens in Sport mode. I'm thinking it is a solenoid in the transmission. Any ideas?

hrmm... buck or does tcs try and take over? you may be tripping tcs to thinking that you are losing traction. Turn off tcs and see if it still happens.

I replaced the diverter valve. I know its not the traction control because nothing pops up. Im thinking its the apc solenoid. The bucking has been cut down a lot from replacing the stock diverter valve. Thank god for Forge.
