Forum rules

When you put a new thread up in the Workshop please put your car's year and model in the thread title, along with just a brief indicator of the problem.

Car Year - Car Model: Brief description of issue. EXAMPLE- 1999 9-3. Problems starting when hot.

Please also add as much information as you can about the problem, to your post.

This will help us to help you, without having to ask basic details such as what car you have.

Threads with non-compliant titles will be moved to The Pit Lane (in which no replies can be posted, but the OP can edit the thread - upon which the thread will be released to the workshop forum)

Nb. Generic thread titles for truly generic issues that genuinely are not model or variant specific (such as "how do I change the spring in an forge wastegate actuator") are acceptable

**The first 5 posts for new users require individual moderator approval (which they will only get it if they are in line the rules of the forum). Please be patient and allow time for that to happen, and avoid duplicate postings.**

Car Model: Saab 9-3 Aero TTID
Hi - hoping someone can help me with a really frustrating issue. My 9-3 Aero TTID had been running perfectly since I bought her nearly two years ago. Recently the car spluttered and went into Limp Mode. RAC plugged in and said EGR fault. They did a Regen and suggested a clean of the EGR Valve. This cured the problem and all was fine apart from a fume smell and what sounded like a blowing exhaust.
Anyway, couple of weeks and no issue.
However, car spluttered again and I took it straight to a garage. Plugged it in and said Air Mass fault. Replaced air mass and have car back. Engine management light still on. Checked the part and wiring, couldn’t find the fault.
First garage suggested it goes to another garage. Second garage found where the fumes were coming from - and replaced the front exhaust section. But, they couldn’t get the Air Mass Fault cleared either. Done a regen and using TechII equipment.
Any one had similar experience? One idea is ECU has gone wrong..???
