I have this car, and over the years there has been an error that nobody seems to be able to fix. Four (!) garages have tried, I have spent a lot of money trying to remedy this, but now I am very close to giving up.
The thing is, the car goes into limp mode. Error messages are P0400...
I'm looking at 9-3 in a few days which is labeled as a mechanic's special. It's been taken to two dealerships and two indies for various bits.
The car has had a pretty good service record but it looks like it failed emissions because of high NO x. The coolant system has been...
My car went into limp mode (in a particularly terrifying crossing on road), AA came out and checked it over. Said that the EGR valve was one of the points up on diagnostic. Reset it and nothing came back up.
Went to the SAAB garage and they said that there was something wrong with the...
2008 9-3 Aero TTiD Sports Sedan Manual
82,000 Km (Approx 51,000Mi)
Bought the car about 2 years ago and since then the time and effort it seems to take to get the car to start from cold is getting worse. Originally it was not too bad and I just wrote it off as being a diesel thing, as...
I am aware that newer cars may not have EGR valves and so far its very difficult to try and find out if the 2005 9-3 2.0t Linear fits into that category; would anyone happen to know the EGR valve configuration, if there even is an EGR valve installed in this vehicle?
Have got a SAAB 9-3 TiD (150 BHP).
Over the last few days, the engine management light on the Saab has been on a off.
Payed a visit to the garage where normally services the car, and they told me that after reading the codes they saw the code P0400 EGR Open Circuit.
They told me they...
I’ve got a 2005 Saab 93 1.9 TD 150 BHP and I seem to have developed a quite major problem with my Saab that I am unable to narrow down after trying.
Just a bit of history for you. I’ve had numerous problems in the past with the usual culprit the EGR Valve!
I don’t tend to do many...
Hi everyone, whilst cleaning the EGR valve on my 2.2 TiD today I noticed that a vacuum pipe that runs close by was worn through. The pipe goes to a diaphragm type valve that is above the EGR and I was wondering what this valve does and where does the pipe run to/from?
I have been having lots...

Hi Saab peeps
Re. Saab 9-3 2.2 TID
I recently replaced my EGR valve as the spring was goosed.
On to the next problem
I took the car for a good run on the motorway and when I reached high revs it went into limp mode.
When I got home I put diagnostics on and it, flagged (P0244 - Powertrain...
I just bought a 2006 Saab 95 Tid, 1.9L very cheap. the guy that owned it gave me a great story how he was imigrating and the diesel filter needed to be change and it would sort out the low power and the misfire on idle. It didn't
This is the problem. When you start the car it runs very wrough at...

just wondering does anyone know if you can blank off an egr valve totally on a 9-3 8v engine?? i know it can be done on egrs that are just mechanical but this one is electrical aswel. i like the idea of blanking it off as effectively it stops the engine eating its own sh1t, and i presume you...
