    I have owned my TTiD 180 since October 2017 and covered 12,000 miles since mostly motorway in all this time I have never seen a DPF message would that suggest that due to my driving mostly motorway it's doing a passive regen? Would I not see any evidence of it doing a regen? There is also the...

    Noticed that my 2007 TiD auto will sometimes produced a slightly awkward auto gear-shift. It's apparently random, and odd in that 99.9% of changes are seamless. It's not dreadful by any means, but it is noticeable. The car has now done 63,000 miles, and when I think back I guess it's done this...

    Hi I've just been reading through an article in a "Blueprint" mag (if you don't know Blueprint supply aftermarket parts for Jap, Korean & some US cars) regarding failed DPF Regen. Those of you lucky enough to own a Saab with a DPF might be interested. The relevant part said "... The dipstick...

    Hello 9-3 Forum. Well I wish I'd looked at Saabscene before buying my 2005 1.9 TiD Vector Sport in February - the squeaks and rattles alone are enough to drive me nuts. Anyway - no warning codes, just vast amounts of blueish smoke throughout each regen, going 10 feet into the air, such that...

    I went to manually regen my dpf using op-com tonight and when i pressed the start regen button a message pops up saying "Function not available yet!" (or words to that effect). Can i have some advice please from anyone familiar with Op-Com operation?
  19. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Is it safe to run a manual if you saturation level is at 104%. I have a OP-COM and have found this option to do the regen. does the car decide if it safe or not. dont want toi mess it up more.
