  1. New Member Introductions.
    I have a 2007 9-3 Linear SpCombi wagon with the Z19DTH engine. I have just bought it with 143,000km on it. The previous owner had problems but wasn't sure at first what it was so replaced all the sensors. He then found that the problem was the DPF was blocked to the point that the vehicle would...

    SAAB 9-3 AERO TTID 2008 180BHP Hoping someone can provide me with some advice I was stationery at traffic lights when the engine began to rev uncontrollably, even when the ignition was switched off. It was so loud; I genuinely thought it may blow up. Eventually it stopped and I had to have it...

    Hi, I was hoping to avoid DPF problems. But seems the constant short journeys have led to this message. Or is is something more serious? Any advice? Before the dreaded limited performance kicks in? Seems the car is drinking more to and there is a ever so slight rough idle? Will a 20mile run...

    Hi Folks Just swapped my 93 for a 2006 95 1.9TID. Very please so far...:) It had evidently been sitting around on the 2nd hand market for a while as it had only done 200-300 miles since its MOT in Aug. On the day I got it, it gave me a fright after about 15 miles it started to smoke and the...

    Well folks, 2 weeks in and absolutely loving the 9-3 Tid convertible - just an awesome car. I do have a question though. My commute to work is 41 miles motorway each way and I haven't noticed any indicator lights coming on or even any loss of performance so how do I know the filter is...

    This whole DPF situation with the Saab 9-3 confuses me! When I first bought my car, a 2007 model Saab 9-3 Sportwagon, I had to have the DPF manually regenerated at Saab, they did this when they replaced the EGR valve. Now I’m doing 60 miles a day commute to work, mostly fast A road, very few...

    Hi, I drive a 2005 9-3 Vector Sport 150 TID. I thought I'd share some information that could save us money. It started with EML staying on, which turned out to be the error code P0400-5A (EGR). I had this cleaned but the light came back on. I then bought an OPCOM based code reader from eBay...
  12. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Can anyone advise how to force a manual regeneration of the Diesel Particle Filter on a 1.9Tid(150)? Do I need a Tech-II to do this? Can any of the other OBD2 readers on eBay be used? My car went into limp mode with error codes for 'EGR valve' and 'air intake leak'. My main dealer diagnosed a...

    Hi all I'm getting an intermittent engine management light (twice so far). Both times it has come on when I've been going around badly tarmaced backstreets with speedbumps. I was wondering if this meant that something was shaking loose which eventually reconnected again or if it was carbon...
  14. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    can anyone tell me if it is true that short journeys will cause the filter to fail?? and that if you give it a good thrashing this in fact helps??

    Hi All, Well after limping 20 miles to South Wales Saab Specialists it turns out my particulate filter is blocked (1.9 Tid 150). Manual reboot didn't do the job either unfortunately - so the thing must be well and truly blocked! Have the car booked in with them now for Tuesday and they are...

    hi I have been told that my particulate filter on my 2004 1.9TiD 120 is totally blocked and beyond regeneration, does anyone have any ideas where i might get one cheap or used. dealer want £900 plus VAT, could i cut it out and put in a straight pipe? and if so would it need Tech 2 to reprogramme...

    Hi All, It's my first post on this and need advice if possible. I only got my 2005 vector sport (120) 6months ago and a few weeks ago i noticed a drop in power which i ignored stupidly for a week or two. Then on a long journey the engine light came on and i new i needed to see a mechanic asap...

    My 04 1.9TDi broke down the other night - no power, Engine Mgt system light on and smoke coming from engine and through air vents. Assumed it was the EGR filter which has gone before when under warranty but independent Saab specialist says it's the particulate filter blocked up. He's going to...
