  1. NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    I have a 1997 saab 900se with 90k miles and white exhaust smoke has been coming out of the exhaust. It tends to smoke after the car has been warmed up. For example on my morning commute it wont smoke but when i commute back it does. I bought the car a couple of months ago and the owner told me...
  2. 9-5 Workshop
    Good morning everyone. I am burning 1.5 quarts of oil per week. Here is what I know: I have 190 PSI in all 4 cylinders. There is black coating on top of pistons. The spark plugs have a whitish buildup on them. There is a bit of mayonnaise on the oil filler tube, but not losing coolant, and...
  3. 9-5 Workshop
    My wagon smokes (blue) so oil, sometimes on startup and it can be a lot. I've done the oil vapor upgrade and installed a clear fuel filter to confirm oil vapor is not entering the throttle body. Last time I did a compression test all cylinders had similar compression values. I am thinking...

    Hey Everyone ! I am really excited to be a part of the community. I do need some help. My '00 95 2.3t is having some idle and smoking problems. The car drives fine at speed but when ever i come to a stop, she idles roughly. Almost so bad to where i feel like it will die on me. Not only that...
  5. 9-5 Workshop
    :o My Saab is a 2002 9-5 Linear Wagon 2.3t Auto with about 74,000 miles. The last time I drove it I felt a hitch while accelerating and saw a puff of smoke roll out of the back. I immediately pulled over and turned off the car. When I started the engine a heavy amount of smoke came out of...
  6. NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    Gentlemen (and/or Ladies)-- I'm a reasonably competant shade-tree mechanic, but I'm also new to Saabs and Saab troubleshooting. The Saab in question is a 2001 Saab 9-3 with 130K on the clock. While driving down the hightway in stop and go traffic my sister began to notice a burning smell...

  8. NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    There is a cloud of white smoke coming out the exhaust when I run the saab, It is a 2000 9-3 5-door hatch. I know its probably the head gasket so I'v already got everything to replace that, I just need to know the bolt order and the torque settings. any advice is helpful, also, does anyone know...
  9. 9-5 Workshop
    Hey all, I'm trying to get my son's '02 95 Aero sedan running again so I can have my car back. I am thinking turbo is out at this point, but wanted to get some advice from folks that know these cars better than I do. He called me yesterday after noticing the car running badly...
  10. 9-5 Workshop
    At 70,000 miles, my 2002 9-5 was occasionally spewing black smoke on start up, in the morning and after a day in the parking lot at work. Not much smoke but noticeable. Replacing the turbo eliminated the problem. The mechanic also did a preventive maintenance: replaced the 10 head bolts and...
  11. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    So the title pretty much says it all. I was at the track racing an S2000 and from the take to the end of the race I was shooting smoke out of the back of my exhaust. Now I didn't see the smoke the S2000 behind me did :cheesy::cheesy::cheesy:. But I figure it had to be a quite a bit of smoke to...
  12. C900 Workshop
    This question sorta goes back to the '88 SPG I'm looking at :roll:, but certainly applies to any C900 out there ;ol;. Now the one I looked at had been sitting for about a month and a 1/2 so I guess some smoke is sorta expected. But as a general rule of thumb if you start a C900 that hasn't...
  13. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Hi everyone, I just came across a problem with my 2005 Saab 9-3 2.0. I recently noticed a burning smell from the back exhaust while idling and some white smoke. I checked the oil and noticed that there was no oil in the tank. I took the car in and my mechanic told me that the turbo needs to be...
  14. 9-5 Workshop
    Hello all, I am new to the forum, but have had a love of Saabs for years, owning 3 prior models. This afternoon, after driving 2 hours to look at it, I bought a used 1999 9-5. It has 160K on it. The owner said that it needed a vacuum pump (brakes), however, he has driven it that way. Prior...
