    Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi all, I have a consistent misfire/judder when holding the revs (partial throttle) between 1.5-2k rpm. Seems apparent in every gear but more so in third (guessing because of the gearing).

  20. 150bhp TiD bit gutless to 2000rpm

    Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)

I didn't expect the diesel to be as fast, but I did expect more low down torque and therefore improved drivability. its really pretty gutless until the turbo kicks in at 2000rpm. I have yet to clean egr but I know...
