Hi, I have Saab 9-3 1.9 TID 150 with 113,000 on clock.


Crank and no start. Study these pages and you may be able to identify your problem.......
Crank No Start

It should not be blowing smoke though. Can you advise the colour of the smoke from the exhaust?

If the smoke was whitish in colour this indicates there is coolant leaking into one or more of the combustion chambers which is a bad sign. You did mention the engine was misfiring which is possibly indicative of low compression due to a combustion leak.
If there is coolant leaking into the cylinder(s) this will be via a failed head gasket or a crack in the cylinder head or both.

I had the same problem on my 9-5 vector 3.0 TiD with the top up coolant warning. Nearly became bankrupt trying to diagnose the problem and trips to Saab. Header tank, sensors, pressure tested etc. The Saab squaddies couldn't figure it out until it got worse. It's a head gasket failure despite passing pressure tests initially...sounds like it's still early days on yours. Had to replace the engine for near £5000.but under warranty :-) Reckon 2.5-3k at a good specialists.

When should the timing belt be changed on a saab vector 1.9 Tid


Standard Answer for Timing Belts/Chains: 100,000 to 120,000 miles is when the Timing Belts/Chains start malfunctioning or failing. Some people want to go ahead and change them before malfunctions/failures happen.
I just replaced mine on 2002 Dodge Grand Caravan which just turned 100K. Most Timing Belt/Chain failures will cause more costly engine damage when these fail, including a need to replace/rebuild an entire engine.

Saab 9-3 diesel 120, My turbo charger is load and whe given a bit of throttle 2 overtake ect.. lots of black smoke piles out the back and sometimes e turbo will stop workin untill u tur the car of and back...


The turbo will not cause black smoke. White smoke, yes, if its passing oil into the engine, but not black.
First check that the air intake and filter is not blocked, check that the air hoses from the turbo and intercooler are not collapsing when given throttle.if thats ok, then get the injectors tested, if they are ok then you need to get the injection pump serviced. Black smoke is a result of overfuelling, either by the poor dispersal of fuel from the injectors or the pump, or blockage of air into the engine on the intake system.
Hope that helps

Two most common problems for this are the DIC and the fuel pump. Can also be the CPS. First check the code. You can try this first before going to a code reader: 1.With the car already off, switch on the ignition without starting the engine. 2. After approx. 6 seconds, the 'Check Engine' light goes out for an instant before lighting up again for 3 seconds. This 3 second flash is a warning that the actual flashing code is about to start. 3. The flashing code consists of a number of short flashes lasting 0.4 seconds. The 'Check Engine' light goes out for 2 seconds between each new flashing code (if there is more than one fault). 4. After the last flashing code, the 'Check Engine' light goes out for 3 seconds before lighting up again for 3 seconds, after which the flashing codes are repeated. Readout continues in this way as many times as you wish. Number of flashes / Function 2 / Manifold absolute pressure sensor 3 / Temperature sensor, manifold 4 / Temperature sensor, coolant 5 / Throttle position sensor 6 / Oxygen sensor 7 / Adaptation 8 / Purge valve (EVAP valve) 9 / ECM, internal fault If no flashing codes display, the problem is something else (other than those nine listed above) and must be determined using a generic code reader that supports OBD 1, or using the GM/Saab Tech II code reader and programmer. My money is on the DIC as it is a very common failure component and fuel pump failures rarely throw a code. The DICs are good generally to 100,000 to 150,000 miles, but this varies wildly, especially if the car is run with overgapped plugs for any length of time. The plug gap should be 1 mm and no more. Cars that are scrupulously maintained vis-a-vis the plug gapping can see DICs last over 200,000 miles.
