Oh dear buddy, thats gonna be expensive.. :confused:

It is highly recommended you check the part number on your current turbo prior to ordering.

thanks a lot Finn, that is so helpful ..

one more question pls, what is the normal service should be done to the turbo, and is it true that if there is some oil leak from the turbo to the fire room in the engine it means that the turbo is over ??? or there is a possibility for something else to be done first ??? let me say a cheaper option :D ???

i have booked already on Sat morning to go to the SAAB service, what should i ask for to be checked guys ???

The Turbo is not a servicable item as it is a sealed unit. The best you can do for it is change your oil every 6000 miles using fully synthetic. NO IT SHOULDNT LEAK OIL. You can normally tell when a turbo has blown a seal as you will get blue/grey smoke, especially on start up..

Have your PCV pipe system checked.. :D

Definately!

Plus ask about a Mitsubishi TD04 Aero turbo, its a more reliable unit and ready for more power too ;)

many thanks guys for the great help, honestly i'm learning a lot here, more than i got from the SAAB service near by :D
about the smoke i get i can clearly tell that there is no blue/grey smoke at start up, the grey smoke (not blue) happens only when pushing the engine over the 3000 RPM, under this revolving everything is ok, and there is no smell.

then and based on what you replied i can understand that the problem might not be with the turbo, and it could be with the PCV pips ???

i have checked many of those threads posted before and i can say that i got a good list to be checked ;) , of course starting with everything begins with PCV.

can u please tell me where i can find the mitsubishi turbo ??

Hammodeh, Parts for Saab the link I posted earlier will probabaly help you with a TD04 Mitsubishi turbo unit, its a fair bit more powerful and takes a little bit of fiddling to make it fit, but its good if you are after some more power... Send them an e-mail, they are a helpful bunch :D

Just out of curiosity when did you last have an oil change? :confused:

hi guys ..
back again to you coz i'm really disappointed :cry:
what happened sat morning at the SAAB service centre that those people do know nothing about the pcv, they have one answer only for my problem; "new turbo" unfortunately.
i have read a full article that a problem with the pcv especially with year 1998 - 2000 models would cause the smoke my car suffers from, and for some reason i'm convinced that the turbo is not the problem, and based on the fact of the unknown pcv, i would say i have to check first before stepping for a turbo replacement.
the question here, can i do that my self ? i would so much appreciate it if someone tells where to look for and how to check everything related to the pcv.
i need to know how to find it, what to change coz i'm planning to change all its hoses regardless their case, the pcv valve and anything else could be related.

pls help :roll:

It sounds like the turbo may have gone then :confused: This is generaly a result of the sludging. I think that perhaps you may still have a smokey turbo even after you fix the pcv pipes. There are 4 main pcv pipes to change. I havnt done the crankcase fix but I understand it may help. Finally of course you need to get all the sludge out of the system, idealy use an engine flush and better still drop the sump and have it cleaned, particularly the strainer. :confused:

Yes the TDO4 does need a little pipe work altering for the turbo but any garage worth its salt would be able to do it. Did you try e-mailing Parts for Saab ? They will probabaly be able to get one and ship it to you.. :)
