    Hi all My 1999 9-3 SE Turbo convertible is blowing off plumes of white smoke from the exhaust. It starts just minutes after starting the engine and clears after about 5-10 minutes of driving. It's worse if I have to stop at traffic lights - cars behind are staying well back!! It's seriously...

    Hi.....I have a 1999 9-5 aero hot auto, quite high mileage. only had it a few months and I'm thinking the turbo has gone, the smoke was pure white, if I'd seen the lord walking out of it it wouldn't have been out of place.

  3. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    I took my 2008 9-3 2.0t wagon in for the "intermediate" service at about 21K miles this morning. As far as I can tell, a $300 oil change, but GM is paying. Pulling out, I'm laying down a smoke screen on acceleration, and again on deceleration. Yikes. Absolutely was not doing this before the...

    Just thought I share the great news! After much smoking over many months on start up and when I boot it - Saab Fulham fixed a blocked breather pipe a few months back which greatly improved matters, so one near miss when I though my Turbo/bank balance was broke, then it started happening again...

  8. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Twice now, months apart, I have started the old girl only to see big clouds of white smoke passing me by. Turned it off and restarted and no smoke. The car is running fine at the moment and because it is clear on restart, am I right in thinking that this is electrical ? Haven't checked for...
