  1. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi all, New here, hoping for some help. The car is a 2005 9.3 SportCombi 1.9 TiD (150hp). Today my 9-3 started smoking a darker colour smoke (or even bluish) from the exhaust, which it has never done before. When I came to my destination, the engine was running rough, with a strange rithm. I...

    Anyone ever had an issue with smoke from the glow plugs? I had plugs fitted around January, done a couple of 500 mile round trips and the car runs spot on. The car has been stood onnmy drive for a couple of months due to using the van for work six days a week. Today I thought I'd take it out...

    Can anyone post pics or diagrams showing layout of pcv hoses and oil trap on a 2007 9-5 vector. I`ve done the fix on a 2002 9-5 Arc but this car is different. I`ve tried a search but not found a layout like mine, with a larger oil trap with four hoses. Looking at the oil trap from beneath the...

    As I discovered today when my 2009 1.9 TID passed the MOT the limits are dropping by a factor of six in some cases from May this year. My understanding was the new limit would be 1.5m currently 3.0m WRONG the new limits will be the plate value as shown on the passenger side door pillar label...

    Hi all, My 2007 9-3 1.9 TID Vector sport estate is giving off black smoke if I drop a gear and floor it. I know it's 10 yrs old . Is there anything else I can do to minimise this smoke from the exhaust.

    Hi There, My 9-5 wagon pushes out white smoke at startup after sitting overnight. Recently, the oil pressure light cam on after driving in town for only about 20 minutes. It has a new turbo and new crankshaft bearings and oil pump. The pump pressure is fine. A mechanic said it was either...

    On an irregular basis there will be a cloud of smoke pour from the exhaust when idling after a temporary stop. Sometimes it is after coming off the motorway but other times it will happen in shopping runs. The vehicle performs normally and does not consume oil. Anybody got a suggestion?

    2 weeks ago I noticed a lot os smoke coming from my exhaust when sat in traffic. I pulled up in a car park to check oil, which was below level, so topped up and attempted to drive home. I found that I was getting a lot of smoke whenever I came to a stand still in traffic and had lumpy idle...

    Hi, advice would be appreciated before I spend potentially lots of money:confused:. I have a Saab 9-3 arc 2.2 tid 2003 145000 miles, which is producing excessive amounts of sooty black smoke.

    This has been a long running issue of a really high level of exhaust fumes when it decides to do a dpf regen. I recently took the car to a new Saab garage for its service and I mentioned the dpf issue. The mechanic said that the dpf I have on my car did not look like a genuine Saab one but an...

  20. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hi, this has been going on for a while now. There's no warning or pattern other than I'll notice a fume smell in the car followed by a lumpiness at idle and a fair amount of blue smoke when accelerating. Sometimes it stops by itself and always just stopping the engine and restarting will cure it...
