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,

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

properly from inside with some sort of cleaner,brush, etc.
