    Default 3.0 Diesel in a Saab

    Chaps,

    The 3.0 V6 Diesel in the Saab 95 is the same as the vec one right.... but am I correct in thinking that there were issues with it in Saab form?

    Cant quite remember?

    Ahh - that was it!! Cooling..

    Was there anything that would be done?

    Vehicle : Opel Signum

    Trim : Sport

    Engine : 3.0 CDTI

    Year : 12/03

    Default

    They have cooling issues (they all do really even in the Vec!). If you look under the bonnet you'll find that the lump in the Vectra/Signum has one more coolant pipe running in front of the cylinders, the Saab one doesn't. Also as said, the 9-5 engine bay is smaller.
    The turbo on the 9-5 3.0TiD is also slightly different and can not be fitted to a Y30DT because the exhaust part of the turbo has a different design.

    In sure I read somewhere too that they only ever did a manual which was also limited too with a 5 speed gearbox so no good for motorway driving.

    Yep, the 9-5s all only had 5 speed boxes including the big petrol engines as wasnt space for a 6 speed box i was told when i bought my old 9-5. fuel consumption was shocking on my 1.9 (150) as a result at cruising compared to similar vectra engines.
