    Hello, I have a 2009 93 Aero TTid 180bhp and yesterday when I was shifting the gear from 2nd to 3rd ( after driving for about 20 minutes) the engine began to rev by itself at full revs and lots and lots of white smoke coming out of the silencers. I tried to switch it off by the key, but it...

    Hi all, Newbie here, hoping for some help with the AF40-6 gearbox. Recently bought a 1.9TTiD Aero with 80k on the clock (to add to the Aero 2.0T already in the family!) Loving it so far, BUT, I'm noticing the gearbox slipping in 2nd and 3rd gear after it has warmed up. Nothing cluncky or...

    Hi guys First post so might be full of errors. Just bought a Saab 2008 TTID Aero, and wanted to ask about a starting issue and black smoke when you floor the accelerator. The car has recently had water pump and cam belt changed, it has 100k on the clock and the engine is smooth and picks up...

    Hi there, need some advise on this please. Have been offered a well known quality brand of 4 x 225/40/18's for my 93 Aero TTiD (180), but everywher I have checked says that they must be 45's not 40's. Can anybody throw some light on this for me please, can I run 40's and if I do what...

    Doing an enquiry for a fellow NI member here. Hes been looking at an 09 VS, its been advertised as a TTiD but doesnt have a turbo gage, the reg is OU09 YDE. As fair as i know all TTiDs have a gage regardless of if its a VS or Aero. Told him to get the VIN and i'd do a check. Whats it likely to be?

    Hi, Positioned crankshaft (cyl 1) and camshafts at timing positions, but engine doesn't start. Could be 180 degr out? Wondering how the ECU knows when to ignite, given that that are two revolutions per full cycle. The crank sensor will tell when getting to TDC, but one is the compression, the...
  13. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi all I think that I posted my arrival when I first got the car back in March - I have put 7000 miles on in that time, so now up to the heady mileage of 26k. So far, pretty happy with it - especially the mid-range performance. Not so happy about the cornering, but then I have just come from...

    As many will know ive been scouring every classifieds in the search for a saab. I'd had my mind made up on a 9-3 vector sport (120). Since then ive noticed a couple of ttid 180's for sale for the same price (5.9k). Ive heard that the 1.9 tid is fairly reliable but dont know much about the ttid...

    Hi Guys, I've a long standing problem with my 2010 9-3 TTID 180, sometimes at idle (usually just after startup) the idle is very lumpy and the car shudders slightly. Revs don't seem to fluctuate too much on the needle, but I have noticed the turbo guage bounces up and down between approximately...

    I've noticed a certain lack of performance of late and am curious as to a couple of comments on the forum regarding the turbo whistle from the TTid, I've never really noticed the noise - Anyone care to contribute a sound clip or description of volume while on boost???
  18. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi Guys, I'm planning to give my car a bit of TLC and swap the glow plugs out while I'm at it, since it's done 65K and I've no idea if they have ever been done. But I'm having a nightmare trying to figure out which glow plugs to order - from what I can tell WIS says that the Z19DTR (which I...
