  2. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    My DPF was completely blocked so I've had it deleted. I have also cleaned the EGR valve and checked the solenoid is working OK. Now, I get huge amounts of black smoke on acceleration although I have full power throughout the range. What would cause this ?? Turbo knackered ?
  3. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hey everyone, getting a little desperate now, because I can't seem to find a solution. Car is a MY99 9-5 2.0 LPT 110kW automatic. Problem - the car on idle has noticeable misfire (rpms drop and rise on the tacho in the range of ~700-1000). If I floor it and let go quickly the rpms drop to <500...
  4. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    ...on gearchanges on the open road. Nearly blinded a Land Rover driver as I pulled away from the tollbooths at the Tamar Bridge on my way in to work this morning (he probably deserved it, but still...) This seems much more significant than the occasional puffs of smoke on startup I posted...
  5. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    So randomly today whilst on the way to Bracknell, i noticed a strange sound. When i accelerate it sounds like there is no airbox on the car and the induction 'suck' noise is really loud. There is no loss of power and the airbox is attached but still when the turbo come in (about 2-2500 RPM)...

    Hi guys, Not been on here for 6000miles now! Thought it was too good to be true. Just had my '54 Vector 1.9td (120) MOT'd, no probs there until I drove off down the road and heard a clunk under the right side of bonnet. Now when I'm pulling off in the 1500-2000RPM range I get this noise a bit...
  7. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Took my recently purchased 1986 saab 900 spg into my mechanic's shop today to get it smogged and was told my car was running on three cylinders due to a leak. He said he also believed there is low compression. He estimated it would be 2000 dollars to fix some valve but he wasn't sure. Anyone...

    HI Just need some advise. I was driving and had huge amounts of consistant grey smoke coming out of my exhaust. I pulled over and checked the oil it had been completely drained. Does it sound like the turbo? or any ideas please? Saab 95 2.3t on a 1999 T plate currently don 154k miles Thanks Haf

    Don’t point your browser towards The Truth About Cars today as it’s likely that Robert Farago’s saliva will end up dripping out of your monitor and all over your desk. It’s just my opinion, but I’m pretty sure the recession in the US is like a godsend to him. General Motors just posted a huge...
  13. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Hi, I was driving along the highway yesterday and heard such a loud popping/banging sound in my car it made my ears ring. At first I thought it was a blow-out, then perhaps an air-bag, or finally a speaker blowing. It appears that none of these things are the culprit, the engine seems fine and...

    This isn't a recent thing as far as I know, but I was prompted to look it up again after posting the Saab Sonett II earlier today. That Saab Sonett was found by the seller when he purchased a storage unit at auction. Imagine buying one of these and finding that beautiful red Sonett inside...

But I would like some other opinions on good places to...
