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: 93 TTid Vector
Hi people

I'm a new owner into the Saab world having purchased my 2008 93 vector TTid a couple of weeks ago.

Everything has been going swimmingly, although after a couple of days I noticed diesel fumes in the cabin, especially when sitting in traffic. No biggie, my wife hadn't noticed it and I certainly wasn't going to bring it up in case id brought a lemon.

But today, whilst sitting in Asdas car park I noticed smoke from under the bonnet. Opening it up I could see the turbos at the front of the engine with a black, round, metal something with a small rubber hose going into it, the smoke was coming from underneath that area?

It starts, drives, pulls absolutely fine. The boost gauge isn't fluctuating at all and other than this smoke, I can't notice anything else of concern.

Has anybody out there got my idea what this could mean?

Many thanks

Wayne

Take the heat shields off and you'll get a better view. I had the gasket fail between the turbo and the cat.

That's a brilliant suggestion, thank you. I've been proper worried for the past 24 hours that I've gone and got a lemon. I still may have, but this makes me feel much better that it may be something that isn't the turbo being Fubar.
Many thanks
Wayne

Could be a water leak from the vacuum chamber area onto the turbo... Possibly.

Or a split flexi on the exhaust front pipe (but that usually smokes up the rear of the engine during regen)
