    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...

    The follow video shows the turbo needle bouncing about like mad. This video isn't actually too bad. Sometimes it is jumping left to right then back again really violently. The car jiggles a bit when it is happening then after about 2-3 minutes it all calms down. Any ideas...

    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...

    Hi, I have had a 2004 9-3 Aero for a number of years. Never had any kind of problem. This morning I started the car and clouds of blue smoke started coming from the exhaust, not just a puff literally clouds. I turned the car off immediately. What could this be ? The car is on 115,000 miles and...

    I have just bought a 2001 9-3 TID with 113000 miles. On startup it smokes heavily but this soon clears. The engine warning light stays on for a while then goes out on revving. Does anyone know what this could be?

    Hi All Got a 93 sportwagon 1.8t (Hirsch upgraded), was absolutely fine, but the dmf started to go, so dealer replaced it with solid under warranty. Now on startup it feels like the engine is going to vibrate loose it shakes that much, is that a normal operation for solid on this motor, or is...

    Apologies for excessive alliteration in the title, it kind of crept up on me.;) Anyway...2002 9-5 2.3T, quite high mileage. Just noticed cloud of blue smoke on startup from cold. Couple of times today. Never seen that before. Seems to run ok but have not had time to drive it much since first...

    I have had the same problem twice now in my 2001 9-3 sedan. I will get in the car, start it and the idle will shoot miles high, 3000 plus. The first time, I disconnected the battery for thirty minutes, reconnected it and all was well. A few days later, driving the car at a steady 55 mph when...

    Hello... long time listener, first time caller. I have an '02 Saab 9-5 2.3t that drives and runs perfectly except for one thing: when I go to start the car after it has sitting for thirty minutes or so and has been driven and is warmed up, it tends to immediately die once or twice (sometimes...

    Hi all, Our 2002 Saab 9-3 Convertible (73k 2.0T) has a strong smell on start up accompanied by white smoke. This goes after a few mins and the exhaust smokes goes as well. Any ideas? Head gasket?

    My 2001 43k mile 2.0t 150 has begun to start up on what feels like three cylinders after leaving overnight. Quick blip of the throttle clears it, but with quite a bit of smoke from the exhaust. Replaced plugs, no help, doesn't happen every day but probably 4 out of 5. Thoughts are maybe oil...
  14. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    I was told that either too much oil is present (just had a oil change when I saw this) or the turbo is going any thoughts? the oil is in the mark area on the low end of the scale.
  15. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    I have just started noticing blue smoke from my exhaust during start up. Recently I had catylitic converter failure and it seemed to start following this event. Could the pressure from the plugged converter have caused damage to the turbo?

    Just bought a 2001 saab 95, it's been smoking a little on startup...seems like it is worse on short trips, but either way it has to sit for a while before it will smoke. I've changed the oil twice at 1000 mile intervals and I took it to the Saab doctor and they installed the new PCV # 6 updated...

    Hello all, about 20-30 miles ago my '98 2.3LPT auto started making a clicking noise from the left side of the engine, around the area of the auxiliary drive belt. I started it the other day (but didn't drive it) and the noise had worsened. Yesterday I started the engine and it ran for about 2...

    Hello, Hi everyone, dedefender here. I thought I would give the site a look see, and I already have a question. Hope I'm doing this right. I own a 1994 Saab 9000 CSE non turbo. I've replaced the following parts after the car wouldn't start after turning it over many times: I've replaced the fuel...

    Hi there, I am new to Saabs, I bought an 07 plate, 93, 1.9 Diesel Sportswagon last November with 48k on the clock. I had it checked out with the RAC, private sale, all okay. Or so I thought. About 6 weeks later I noticed the car sounded awful when I restarted the car when it was warm (on the...

    Hi all... I have a 2005 Saab 9-3 1.9 TID with 130k on the clock... It runs well, but has begun to give a loud knocking noise when I start the engine... It is not present when the engine is idling or even revving. I can also "replicate" the knocking if, in first gear I apply power and...
