I have seen posts about this but very vague answers maybe I wasn't looking hard enough but, my 04 9-3 lost all signs of turbo today, I drove home from work it was fine I stopped at the bank atm car stayed running then I drove off and I noticed no spool at all,I'm curious if it's the actuator stuck open is my guess bc it still drives , is an actuator for an 05+ applicable to the turbo on my 04? I notice there's like NO parts online for the 04 so I was also wondering if 04 is a half model, because I found I nice one online I was going to to get. Let me know. 04 saab 9-3 5 speed arc b207r

My first guess would either be a bad charge air bypass control valve or boost pressure control valve. Could also have a vacuum leak. All of which would eventually throw the car in limp mode. Spool but no power (in my experience) is indicative of a boost leak.

But yeah, a code reader will let you know what's up.
