    New Member Introductions.
    Hello Everyone, My 2007 Aero Convertable's rear view mirror is losing it's silvering around the edge, and whilst this doesn't effect the view rearwards clarity wise, it does look a bit tatty. Recently I had cause to visit a SAAB recycler for a battery cover and found Auto dimming mirrors of the...

  10. TTID big turbo not working?

    Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi all My ttid only boosts to middle of the gauge now and is missing power like the big turbo is being bypassed. No obvious leaks so my best guess at the moment is the boost control solenoid for the big turbo is not working, meaning the waste gate is open (by default)? Question is which of the...
  11. Turbo Boost gone??????

    Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Just become the owner of a high mileage 1991 2.3 Carlsson manual gearbox with TCS. When I got it the turbo was burning a little oil but still boosted OK.....I've had it a week and last night the boost stopped wont go beyond the yellow and is as flat as the perverbial...

  13. No Turbo

    Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    I just bought a 96 2.0 CSE, and after having it for 2 days, the turbo has gone out. The car drives fine, albeit a little sluggish, but other than that, there are no indications of a problem. The boost gauge is inop, so that doesn't help. Any suggestions on trouble shooting this? Thanks.

  16. Screeching Turbo, any ideas ?

    Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    My 96 Aero ( manual ) has started to make a sort of high pitched screech when i start to accelerate hard and am well in boost. I am certain that the noise is from the Turbo and it sounds more like an air leak than anything mechanical. The car still feels fit and i cant see any loose pipes after...
  17. Turbo Fitment Advice please ?

    Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Can someone tell me for certain if the 2.3 LPT and FPT 9000's (NON AERO) use the T25 Turbo. Someone said they use a T3 fitment but i was under the impression it was a T25 and not a T3. Also if these models do use a T25 what is the normal A/R figure on both the exhaust housing and the outlet...
  18. Turbo Fitment Advice please ?

    Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    This is a little bit off line for this forum but still the correct place to get the right answer. As well as my 96 Aero (manual) my wife runs a 97 1.8 MX5 to which i fitted a DIY Turbo and intercooler. The results are excellent but i have always been aware that the Turbo on the Mazda is one of...

A good friend of mine, David, has just done a complete engine rebuild on his 900 Aero which is a 2.3 FPT ( I think that's the case). Less than a full tank of...

    Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    OK... i am looking at buying a '92 9000 CS 2.3 Turbo with auto box, 240,000 kms on it, etc... because the bonnet on it is in perfect condition, and the aero needs a new one.... and this '92 is cheaper than a new bonnet! Question. this engine is the 200bhp/300nm one right? it has the 2.3...
