Car Model: 2001 saab 9-3 2.2 tid
hi all i have just signed up to this site today and iv no clue on how to use it or ask questions or if anyone can even see this post but i need help i bought a 2001 saab 9-3 2.2 tid se coupe last month it was my friends fathers since 08 and i allways liked it as it looked very smart compared to others around anyway i bought it with it needing a new bottom arm and there was a leak on the power steering so it turns out both bottom arms need replacing and the hydrolic gearbox/engine mount . not a problem so i have been driving it gently until i can repair it when i started having starting problems and would have to tow start it. then i was driving to a friends house the other day and it started to judder then cut out but there is still a quarter of a tank of diesel in it so i sprayed easy start into the airbox whilst on jump leads and it fired up so i was reving it to make sure it was not just running off of easy start or fual left in the lines i let it go to run on idle and it cut out again and would not fire off of easy start so i then towed it and it fired briefly then cut out and now will not do anything i rang 2 saab specialists today and both said fual pump which i suspected and said to scrap it but one did mension to try clean the egr valve before sending it to its death . i am not going to scrap it as i love it but if anyone has any advice i would really apreciate it . and sorry about the long story just wanted to get everything in for people to read :)

many people get a reading that the egr valve has problems,in most cases it may be but after spending £1000 with 3 different garages claiming they can fix the problem,i descided to take it elswhere and they told me that in a lot of cases look at the turbo intercooler,a lot of times the pipe splits,£200 on average depends where you shop, waiting for mine to be repaired on tuesday,fingers crossed i will have my sporty diesel beast up and running mid next week, but to be honest after all this hassell,my next car will be the mondeo turbo diesel lol.
