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 idle. Like a petrol car with a bad spark plug. Push down the accelerator and very dead in power until it hit 2500 rpm and then its like a rocket. Once you keep it above 2500 in any gear its like a sports car but below 2500rpm very dead like its running on 2 cylinders. Its showing up no faults. Now twice as I was driving the car it lost power and loads of smoke from the exaust like you've broken a pistion ring. Pull into the side of the road turn the car off and start it again and the problem is gone. No more smoke but not the low power at low revs. It sounds like the EGR valve but the mechanic said its ok
