Replaced the Turbo in the 2000 Saab 9-3 Hatchback (Start Up, First Drive, Before/After)
Well I finally am getting the video up on the 2000 Saab 9-3 that I featured a while ago with an engine malfunction. Turns out that it was a bad turbo. we replaced it and gave it a good service and now it runs like new. no it didn't take this long to fix, it's been done for a while, just waiting for the people to come and get it if they come get it haha, plus I've been at school so not a lot of chances to go home to video it. If not we'll just detail it and give our warranty with it like the first time and make someone else happy with it! :)
1999 Saab 9-3 SE Convertible - NO START
After a head gasket replacement, my car will still not start. The timing looks ok (the Exhaust camshaft might be off by one tooth) There seems to be fuel getting to the engine, the battery is good, spark plugs are new. What could be wrong with my car?
1999 Saab 9-3 turbo
This is my brother's 1999 Saab 9-3 four cylinder turbo 5-door hatchback. It is a Swedish made car and it has awesome handling. Unfortunately, General Motors (GM Europe) announced they are getting rid of the Saab brand. Saab was originally made by the Swedish aeroplane company Svenska Aeroplan Aktiebolaget (SAAB).
Blown Head Gasket Saab 9-3?! Start Up With LOTS of Smoke
Well a lot of you probably remember the 2000 Saab 9-3 Hatch back that we had at the dealership a couple of months ago. Well something happened to the engine to where it just billows an un natural amount of pure white smoke! They brought it back so we can get it fixed for them. In this video I try and assess what's going on and see if you all have any suggestions on what it could be before we send it to the shop. Dad also pulls it around and sees for him self. we're thinking it's a head gasket and maybe a motor mount or a tranny mount. Post below what you guys think it is and I'll let you all know when we find out. You will see what I mean and how bad this thing is haha, enjoy!
1999 Saab 9-3 - Acceleration Problems
My saab started stalling (the engine acts as if it stops running, and then starts running again). This causes the rpms to fluctuate (sometimes going down 1500 rpm before coming back up). However, if I let the engine idle, there is no stalling. The longer I drive it, the worse it gets, until it stalls when slight pressure is applied to the accellerator. When I turn off the car and start it back up, it runs normal for a little bit. This problem has been getting progressively worse and now the car isn't driveable.
Also, when the accelerator is pressed hard from idle, there is a dip in the rpms. However, when in park I can raise the rpms to any level and it will stay there without fluctuating.
The computer is throwing the code P0108, the map sensor is showing higher pressure than expected. I have replaced the map sensor and all vacuum lines connected to the throttle body (they were in bad shape). After doing both of the above, the car seemed to work fine, then 30 miles down the road it was back to the same problem. After this I started throwing parts at it, and replaced the fuel filter, the fuel pressure regulator, and the spark plugs, I also cleaned out the throttle body. These had no effect. Just now, I used a baby snot bulb connected to turbo bypass valve to test for leaks, but it didn't seem to be losing vacuum.

The mystery of the Saab headlamp switch
Here's reason #1 why Saabs are known to be "quirky"... The headlamp switch is not typical. In this video I explain the "modes" that control the sophisticated lighting system in a 2007 Saab 9-3. I demonstrate how to use these functions: flash-to-pass, follow-me-home, and remote control.
