Saab 93 EGR Valve cleaning 9-3 2.2 TiD 2003
5 minutes DIY to clean a stuck EGR valve on a Saab 9-3 diesel 2.2 2003,
without remove it. The car was almost dead and had shacky start. Diagnostic
came up with EGR CODES P0400, etc. Amazingly the car regained power and
normal idling back by cleaning and freeing the carbon chocked spring, hook
and the piston shaft with WD40 & Carb cleaner from outside of EGR. For long
lasting repair of course you would need to take the valve out and clean
properly from inside with some sort of cleaner,brush, etc.
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!
How to Add an AUX Input to a Saab 9-3
This video shows how to add an AUX input jack to a 2003 or newer Saab 9-3.
Before doing this you might want to look in your center armrest and see if
there's one there already. I had one, I just didn't know it. Oh well... I
like the location of this one better anyway. My car is a 2006. I don't know
what year Saab started adding the AUX input in the armrest, but some of the
earlier cars didn't have them.
Anyway, now I have TWO AUX inputs! :-)
If your car is a 2003 through 2005, go here to see how to connect the wires
directly to the pins on the back of the stereo:

THEY ARE BACK IN STOCK. If you want one, send an email to
email@example.com and I'll reply explaining how to buy.
Since the other method required splicing into wires or attaching to
individual pins, I decided to simplify things for people by making a
plug-in harness. The connector on the harness is identical to the factory
connector and plugs right into the auxiliary input on the back of the
radio. This makes the installation super-simple and quick.
