    Just thought i'd post up what I've been up to with my dirty diesel. A few weeks ago I got around to sorting out the rattling duel mass flywheel. Bought the genuine flywheel and clutch kit from neo bros for £329ish. It took me about 16 hours to complete the job on jack stands on my driveway. I...

    Before I change all four glow plugs can you please tell me is it normal for the glow light on the dash to only stay on for two seconds? If that is normal and the glow plugs actually heat up for longer so be it. My wife's Nissan stays on for at least five seconds. What I am asking is that are my...

    Hi, since replacing inlet manifold, clutch and dmf and a few other bits have still been getting a rough sounding engine until warm. Spoke to parkinson's diesel tech in newark who said it's likely to be a glow plug rather than injector and the car running rough with a cold cylinder until it...

    Is there a place I can find this and is it the kind of job a very amatuer mechanic can undertake?
  11. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    I've never done this before ..... I imagined it would be like replacing spark plugs ........ It (Sort of) Was ..... Starting with a hot engine: I found after removing the lead from each plug, then dropping a few Ml of DD40 over the top, pausing for 10mins, applying a long reach 9mm socket &...

    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...
  16. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Just picked up the above suffering from a couple of minor faults. It was the right price because the power steering pipe had done it's usual trick of rusting through and spraying PAS fluid everywhere. That isn't a problem, the new one arrived in the post this morning and I've changed them on a...

    Hi everyone, a few separate questions here: 1. I have blanked off the EGR and I'm getting the engine light come on, which I was expecting. I know that I can get rid of it by drilling a hole in the blanking plate, although I would prefer not to if there was maybe another way, like...

    Hi, i have difficulty starting and idling until warm. When the engine is warm it starts and runs with no issues, just from cold whatever the weather, I have tested resistance on the plugs and the are fine, however the leads show high resistance between leads and ground. I suspect the...

    Hi Guys, New to the forum and this is my first post so please go easy on me! ;) Purchased my 58 plate TTID Aero about 6 months ago now and pretty much since I've had it it runs a little rough on start up and is very smokey. The smoke stinks and clears after about a minute and then the car...
