  1. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Sorry if this is the wrong forum or if this has been posted before, I haven't found any posts that answer my question I found two 2008 Saab 9-3 Aeros (GCC spec) and one has a photo of under the hood and the engine says SAAB turbo, but neither have a boost gauge inside. I noticed that images of...

    I have Saab aero 2.3l 2007 . When the motor is cold the car is very alive and perform the turbo boost reaches the red area easily, but after about 20 mins of drive with normal motor temp the performance dropping down significantly and the boost is not reaching the red area at all . Any ideas ...
  3. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi Grateful for any advice/ pointers please? Had my 1.9 TTiD Aero from new in 2009, 75k mikes, FSH, no issues. About a year ago my job changed meaning I was closer to home - like 2 miles rather than 50 - so my motoring became very much start stop. This started to take it's toll with the DPF...

    Evening all, just got my 2008 9-3 TTiD taxed and insured from today. Taken it out for a run this evening as come tomorrow it will be my every day car. I can hear a whooshing noise as if there is a boost leak, especially when I hit the loud pedal. I don?t think it is boosting correctly either...
  5. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Hey all, I've got an ongoing issue since the rebuild on my 9-3 Aero, it's a OG T7 B205, basically since the build it's been intermittently cutting boost, sometimes it'll boost fully for a good few miles then all of a sudden either at half boost, deceleration, or flat out the boost will just cut...
  6. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi Guys, I'm wondering if someone can help. I think I mentioned previously that my Dad has the same 93 as me and he's having an issue with turbo boost low down the rev range. He's convinced it's a PCV that's the problem as it's an intermittent fault. I know it could be more than that, but I...
  7. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Hi I have a 2001 93 and I noticed it is not pulling as well as it used to, it starts and runs perfectly just not as quick as it used to be. If I disconect and plug the hose going to the turbo wastegate it is back to normal, so I assume the turbo and hoses are fine. I checked the resistance...

    Driving my TTiD SS a few days ago, I accelerated off a roundabout onto a 70mph road. Full throttle in 3rd it just suddenly lost power. EML was on already as EGR was unplugged at the time but I scanned while on the move to get P2279, which I believe shows there is an issue with the inlet manifold...

    I've just had the car remapped by the awesome SabNoob and after putting it back together I've just started getting a mild ticking from under the bonnet under boost. It's been out of action for about 5 weeks while the ECU went over to the UK and back (I'm now in NZ) and the only other...

    2004 9-5 Arc 2.3. There's a loud wining sound upon hard acceleration and was told it might be a turbo boost leak. Any suggestions on where to start looking? Thanks.
  11. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Hi everyone. I've been having some issues for my 9000, some of which have been around before I bought it. I'm going to try to organize this in a way that makes sense, since it's kind of an infodump. I have a 1996 9000 Aero, manual, non-TCS and 100% stock. I'm using a Bosch bluetooth OBD2...
  12. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi there, this thread has evolved since starting it earlier and i am getting to the root of the problem. My 2003 9-3 Aero is having boost issues, no/low boost, then sometime full boost. the 2003 car was fiotted with an sai system and EGT sensor, it was a bad idea and Saab stopped fitting them...

    Could anyone help with a problem with a Saab 2.2 TID Diesel? - The car standard hessitates terribly on acceleration - constantly making noises as it trys to accerelate. You can either come off the throttle or push the throttle further to clear. If you use a lot of acceleration the car...

    Hi all, I have a 2008 9-3 TTID Can someone please tell me where the gauge on the dash is getting the reading from? Is it taken from the inlet manifold via a vacuum/pressure pipe or is it from what the ecu is reading?
  15. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Wondering if anyone can suggest a possible cause/fix for what I'm experiencing when accelerating hard with my 2004 9-3 2.0L Aero Convertible. As I hit the red on the boost gauge there is a knock (best way I can describe it is as if the traction control suddenly kicks in for a second) once or...
  16. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Hey guys, so I had the car on the dyno and did a run to check base boost and it is at 13 psi. I realize my car should be set to 8 or 9 psi. My question is I have a stg 3 ecu and was wondering if I would notice any benefits from the tune if my base boost is way off.

    What psi boost should I be seeing from a stock 2003 1.8turbo? Thanks

    Hi All, This is my first post on this forum, so please be gentle. I have recently bought a 9-3 1.8t. (85000 miles F.S.H) I decided it needed more power and so had it re-mapped. The car is running fine and pulling very well in every gear. However, the other day, I decided to open her up...

    Hi, my battery went flat on my 9-5 aero so fitted a new one & since then i have noticed that i dont have the same boost as i used to have eg. driving at 30ish & accelerating the turbo would kick in now it changes down a gear without turbo boost although the boost gauge shows normal operation...
