  2. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    HI all, A week or so ago my 9-3 stalled comin into a roundabout and when I restarted there was a big reduction in power. It'll drive okay and (just about) overtake but it's still missing a lot of power. It's also become very rough and smokey at startup but once it runs for a couple of minutes...

    Whilst I like my old little smoke-mobile I don't want it failing an MOT because of it! It only seems to happen when left for a while and engine returned to cold. No obvious sign of oil leaks within engine compartment, smokes for 15secs then disappears. Blue oily/diesel smelling smoke...

    Ive noticed that every time I go into my revs where my turbo kicks in that theres a lot of smoke. Its hard to determine what colour it is as I only see it at night with car lights behind me. It looks like its a very dirty smoke. I recently booked it into my local garage where they found my...

  6. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Every now and then when I start my Saab up from cold it is a little bit smokey ( blue smoke) and has a lumpy idle. I cleaned out my EGR valve and inlet pipe as it was absolutely covered in dirt. Has anyone else had the same problem?
  7. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Getting blue smoke when easing off the loud pedal after a nice turbo boosts. I suspect its the oil seals in the turbo that are/have wearing out - seen kits on ebay for little money. Now how difficault is it to DIY service the turbo ?
  8. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi everyone, My delightful 2.2TiD is playing up again, it has started hesitating at around 2000rpm (when the turbo comes on boost I think) and has started being a bit smokey, not massively but more than is right. I have given it an oil and filter change and put a some diesel injector cleaner...

    Hi Guys, I have a 2006 Saab 9-3 TiD Sport 120 and it has covered 114k with FSH,I recently had the cambelt changed (not by a main dealer) and when he went to remove the old belt he noticed that the 2 markers didn't line up and the timing appeared to be advanced. I don't have any trouble starting...

    My MY2002 9-5 3.0TiD vector seems to smoke a fair bit when I put my foot down. I say seems as I only see it in the rear view at night in the car behind lights. Is this normal or should I get things checked out? Thanks, Craig.
  12. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    I'm having a very odd problem with my 2001 2.2 TiD and just wondered if anyone else had experienced anything similar or had any thoughts on what the cause could be. A week or so before the 66k miles service was due the engine warning light came and the car went into limp home mode. Switching...

    Hi All, Had my saab for about 4 months now and loved every minute of it. However Ive noticed recently that the car hesitates and runs rougher than normal when cold. Once hot the engine feels as sweet as ever. Also there is alot of smoke at start up as well as a funny smell. Im not sure as to...

  16. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    I'm sure its been covered before but here goes. After being left overnight my 85k mile 2000 9-5 LPT 2.3 puffs out a noticeable amount of oil smoke. There isn't any in evidence at tick-over when hot or at any other time. The crankcase breather pipes were replaced some time ago and are still...

    I've got a 9000 2.3T Griffin. 170,000 with 2 head gaskets, one encompassing the valve stem seals being re-fitted. After short journeys I have a light blue smoke which, to be honest, pours out the exhaust on idle. However, after a good rev or starting off this disappears. The car is still on...
