    Hello all, I can not wrap my head around why my engine seems not to be damaged.. I had noisy hydraulic lifters. Well one for sure. noisy ticking sound that disappears after 1 minute or so.. Opened cam cover, set timing to zero by turning crank. Everything lines up nicely. Removed camshaft...

    As a newbee to Saab (1year) I have been given various advices about the lumpy starting and whiff of petrol on my 2009 Aero Petrol 2.0T 50k miles The Saab Indy garage I brought it from(Chelmsford Saab) has changed the plugs and put the WURTH petrol treatment though the car but it still...

    I recently had idling issue with my 2001 Saab 9-3 SE Conv. [130k]. I checked the engine compartment after I heard a suction noise and found a open hose which must have come off from a black kind of valve. I was able to put the hose back to the valve and the engine would immediatly go back to...

    Hi, who knows what the resistance of a evap purge valve for a 9-5 2005 aero should read? I keep reading 45 ohms or there abouts is normal for these, i'm getting 25 ohms. The valve is different from one i tested on a my99 which reads 45 ohms. Please clear this up for me i don't have wis Many...

    Hi, My 94' 9000 aero is sick. It drives but above 2500-3000 rpm I have no power. The electronic throttle body was changed few months ago. I am thinking the TCS valves (on bulk head & inner wing) need replacing. Has anyone got a pair going cheap?? I am in west midlands. If anyone can help email...

    SAAB 9-3 AERO TTID 2008 180BHP Hoping someone can provide me with some advice I was stationery at traffic lights when the engine began to rev uncontrollably, even when the ignition was switched off. It was so loud; I genuinely thought it may blow up. Eventually it stopped and I had to have it...

    i am toying with the idea of either propping open or removing the swirl vales in my inlet manifold on my 1.9 tid 150. off the top off my head i cant think of any problems this will cause. but i thought some of you who are more familiar with the saab engines might know some. cheers for any help...

    Hi all, My 2005 9-3 1.9 tid has been suffering from a severe lack of power lately. noticeably up to 2000rpm then it will boost up to 3000rpm before it dies out. I have had a look at the engine and noticed that the rod that links all the swirl valves together has become unattached from the valve...

    Hi all, I stupidly chose not to have the cambelt done at my last service on my 9-3 tid vector (62000 miles, thought it would last one more year) . At 65000, the cambelt slipped but didn't snap. I took it to a local garage who say there is a lot of damage and are quoting £1600 for repair...

    Playing around with a lot of old T5 boost valves of late. Holding two in my hand at the moment. One rattles when you shake it up and down in line with the way the solenoid would move inside. The other doesn't. What is the default. Should they both rattle or should they both be quiet?
  12. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    I have a 1991 Saab 9000 CD 2.3L N/A. Timing chain broke and bent a s*** load of valves. The problem now is finding valves? Does any one know where to find them. I only located the exhaust valves. Thanks in advance.
  13. Saabscene: Performance
    I am looking at putting larger exhaust valves in my cylinder head and was wondering what oversize valves are available for the B207 cylinder head. In the States for the L61 you can get 1mm oversize but not certain if this is actually oversize or conversion difference from inch-mm

    Evening all, I've noticed a bit of a problem with one of the tyres on my 1998 9-5 2.0lpt, one of a set of Dunlop SP Sport 3000 215/55/16s - it won't hold 36 bars of pressure, and over the course of a week it drops down to about 26, but then stays there. The alloys are in reasonable condition...

    Ok guys engine check light has come on and the car has gone into limp mode so i pulled off the engine cover to have a quick look and noticed that the swirl valve bar is completely off all 4 valves. I did see a guide here ages ago about doing this job but cannot find it on the search button...

    When I had a little time I investigated my jumped timing belt problem a little further. The damage was restricted to the front cylinders only, a compression test on the back pots proved OK. So I removed the cylinder head from the front (an easier job than I thought). The damage was restricted...

    I've got an 05 1.9 Tid Vector (150). Replaced the egr valve due to reduced performance etc and it's worked a treat, like a new car. But I understand it can be a recurring problem. From what I've read there was a new design egr valve on back order in 2008, my question is do these new ones do the...

    I own a 1.9Tid 150 Saab, bought new in 2005, It now has 40,000 miles on the clock and last week I lost power momentarily, this situation occcured 3 or 4 times over the next few days so booked the car into the local Saab dealer for a diagnostic check, although the engine management light didn't...

    Am I correct in thinking that the 9-5 Aero (MY00) doesnt like having an atmospheric dumpvalve fitted?
  20. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi everyone, Just a bone question here. Does the 1.9Tid 2004 8v (120bhp) have swirl valves? The reason I ask is that during a long, expensive diagnosis of several problems on my car SAAB said that I may need a new inlet manifold and swirl valves/actuator. I didn't get this done because the fault...
