    I know there is previous advice on this issue but I thought I would add my experiences. Recently the engine warning light came on. My simple plug in stated the EGR valve. I changed it about 2 years ago so with a mere 91000 (09 TiD auto) I was sure it was not a fatal problem. I went down the...

    Hi, I've been experiencing loss of power and build up of soot in my EGR and intake manifold system. Typical diesel yada-yada... Weekend before this weekend I cleaned my EGR valve. It was a complete mess, proper sootfest. The power restored for a couple of days, but I felt it started lagging...

    Can anyone tell me where to source valve shims for a 93 8v diesel. I suspect that this might be a generic part rather than specific to the Z19DT engine. I don't want to start out on the job without first having a source.

    Hi Guys, I'm wondering if someone can help. I think I mentioned previously that my Dad has the same 93 as me and he's having an issue with turbo boost low down the rev range. He's convinced it's a PCV that's the problem as it's an intermittent fault. I know it could be more than that, but I...

    Hi everyone, I was doing my monthly tire pressure checkup today, and when I screwed off the valve cap on one of the tires I saw that the tire valve was plugged with a strange wax-like substance! Does anyone know what this is? It's preventing me from pumping the tires. The car - a 2001 Saab 93 -...

    Been reading over on Saab Central (US forum) about problems with inlet valves on 2ltr Petrol engines which cause poor cold starting issues (Low compression when cold). I haven't come across any incidents reported on UK Saab forums and wondered how common a problem it actually is? I am not...

    Hi all, Changed the purge valve on my v6 today due to usual difficulty to start after refuel and a related fault code. All went well up until disconnecting the black connector from the old valve. Twisting and pulling ended up snapping it! I've held it in place with electrical tape at the...

    Hi there, anyone did it already ? Is it really complicated ? I mean once the gearbox is removed from the car, how difficult is it to just swap the valve body AND the filter with new ones? Nothing else just swapping. Thank you.

    Valve,cam or rocker...Not sure of the official name, but regardless, one is leaking. I can't find the fastening torque anywhere and I'm hoping someone can help here. On more modern vehicles the gaskets are normally fitted dry although there are some cars, like a BMW e39, I once owned, which...
