    Hi all, My 07 93 Tid has about 180kmiles on the clock. It has been using a bit of the oil the past year and I suspected the turbo for some time, oil around the intake pipes and pipes out of the turbo. It got progressively worse so I changed out the core of the turbo for a new powertec part...

    Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Just wondering if anyone is, or has used Shell V-power Diesel..? I've started using it given that it's only a quid or so more expensive than a standard tank. Back in the days when I had a sportier machine, it was V-Power petrol all of the way, but this is the first time I've used the stuff with...

    Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    The (fairly) faithful 95 2.2TID 156,000 miles decided not to start this morning. It fired up, chugged happily for about 10 seconds and then cut-out. Now it turns over, but it won't fire up at all, so I'm waiting for the AA to toddle round. I don't think its battery, but it'll drain donw iof I...

    I posted a message around a month ago about a leak in the rubber hose between the engine and the expansion tank in my 2003 3.0 TiD Vector (155K miles on the clock) and how the car was fixed near Maidstone in Kent. Unfortunately, as we were driving back to the continent two weeks ago, the engine...
