More Problems With the 2000 Saab 9-3 (Smoking, Test Drive, etc.)
Well many of you have seen all the other videos on this car and seen that we replaced the turbo in it a little while ago. After sitting for an extended period and battling to get it started with a dead battery, when I took it for a drive it started smoking, more and more. Today, 1 day later after I drove it, we started it up and no smoke was to be found. Weird, we'll have to check it out more to make sure everything is right with it. but like I said, today, everything was totally fine so idk if the oil/gas mixture got screwed up or something from sitting so long with little to no gas in it (had to fill it up before the drive) or what. We shall see I guess! Let me know what you guys think!

How to Rebuild a Turbo - Part 1 of 2
Rebuilding a td05h 16g turbo. This
process can be applied to many journal bearing turbochargers. :) It definitely comes in handy to
know how to do this when you are in this type of hobby.
4/25/12: Small explanation on the balancing of the rotating assembly since
I get so many comments regarding it. This particular turbocharger, td05h, has its rotating assembly
components balanced separately. This means each individual part (compressor
wheel, turbine wheel/shaft) gets balanced separately. This allows for easy
interchangeability of parts in case they need replacing. This is why I am
able to install a td05 20g wheel on this turbo without having to balance the entire
rotating assembly. THIS IS NOT THE CASE FOR ALL turboS OUT THERE. You need to research whether
your specific turbo (if it's not td05h)
was balanced as an assembly or "component balanced" like I explained above.
I hope this information helps. Good luck in your projects. Stay Boostin'

blue devil head gasket sealant repairs a blown head gasket
A product called Blue Devil Head Gasket Sealant is added to the radiator
and is said to repair head gasket leaks.This product saved me ~2k +.With
their money back guarantee I had nothing to lose.Spent some time on
Saturday and Sunday doing the work and was driving on Monday.Can't say it
will fix all head gasket issues but i have nothing but accolades for this
product.All error codes were cleared.This product does not contain solids
as did products from the last century.Go to their website and follow the
directions instead of what is on the bottle.What you need to do is remove
as much glycol solution as you can,remove the thermostat,fill with
water,add the "Blue Devil",cap the radiator and circulate for 50
minutes.This solution will flash when it hits the hot spot(bad
gasket)leaving sodium silicate behind.In theory this is a permanent repair.
We shall see.
Update:3/20/10 After ~1100 miles it is still holding.Oil is clear with no
coolant and there is no coolant loss.
Update#2: 12/3/10 There is now 4k on the motor since adding BD.Just did the
second oil change.Added about 1/2 pint of coolant .Ready for winter.Still
going strong.No smoke or coolant loss issues.
Update #3: 3/14/11,85,000 miles,7,000 miles since "the" repair. The past
week resulted in coolant getting into the cylinders.There was no coolant in
the oil and the expansion tank was not bubbling.The vehicle was not smoking
like the last time,just a light vapor and coolant dripping from the weep
hole on the muffler.
Added a bottle of BD and yes it worked again.Anyone want to buy a truck ?
Saab 93ss vs Mustang Saleen
Just having some fun at the track. Not my best run. But I kept up with it
until the end :) (Bandimere Speedway 5800' above sea level)
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
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.
Cold Start 2000 Saab 9-3 2.0T Hatchback
This car has actually sold I believe, a little bit after making this video.
I've had a lot of you all wanting me to do some more cold starts so I
figured I'd make a bunch of short videos and put them up this weekend so
you can see some of the stuff still at the dealership. Think of this as
dealership cold starts just separately because I wanted each vehicle to
have a few min instead of blaze through them real fast. This is the 2000
Saab 9-3 hatchback with the 2.0T engine. I do a quick cold start after a
snow/ice storm that left thousands of people without power in the NC
piedmont triad (we lost power too lol, which was why I was at the
dealership) I also show the engine and the car's weatherband function.
