    Default SAAB 9-3 TTid?

    Guys,

    Do you know much about the 1.9 twin turbo diesel engines? I'm thinking about buying one off my parents, i drove it yesterday for 300 miles, it was superb, very fast and averaged 55mpg

    So if you guys can shed some light on this engine, common faults, reliability, and cost of genreal spares that would be great

    They are the same 1.9 16v unit in the Vectra's as far as i know, just with 2 turbos whacked on it. So just the usual EGR and Swirls to watch out for mainly.

    Engine parts should be easy to come by since Fiat, Alfa, and Vaux use this unit, other parts i'm not sure since Saab went bust

    Always fancied one of these too, Steven. The Saabs seem to have an excellent spec. Modding is going to be a bit more difficult than a Vectra/Signum due to relative lack of bits.

    What are the common faults Paul?

    It had a new engine fitted @7k due to overrun, but this was a common fault on some due to exhaust DPF blocking. This has been cured by fitting carbon scrapers on the valves according to SAAB. It really does drive superb, makes my vectra feel very old and aged...even though its essentially the same car!?

    So the DPF is easily removed? Does this need the software removed?
