I have a Saab 93 2008 Linear 1.9 TID , which has been causing me issues for a long while with cold starts , issue seems to not happen ever once the fule temp is up in any way . Got a diagnosis from a

changing the pulley and belt does'nt seem the correct advice to me ,only in the context of while thiese parts are removed makes good economic sense to replace them now and not have another bill in 50k km's time, if the cam shaft sensor is causing an issue only when engine cold then i would think the problem is with the circuitry between the ECU/PCM and the cam sensor , if you can forward me the OBD code i should be able to help further ,

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.

Let me know if this helped, or if you have additional information or questions. Feel Free to contact me at!

STAND WELL BACK AND BE READY TO SHUT ENGINE OFF as soon as the coolent starts to bubble turn engine off and leave to cool before replacing cap, start engine again with cap on drive for a little while untill the temp gauge shows warm and check that the fan in engine bay is working have heater blowers in car on all the time whilst doing this operation!

93 Vector Sport. Turbo keeps cutting out

very common issue with post 2001 turbos. the fault is usualy down to the air flow meter (mounted on the airbox or induction pipe). you will find its at its worst when warm. do not fall for a garage telling you the turbo has failed.

I have a Saab 93 TID (2005 Vector) KEYFOB PROBLEM!

I suspect you have a problem in the security system receiver module, which in most cars must be programmed by the dealer.

Front Springs

I spoke with the Saab dealer whom sold me the springs last March, he told me there is an ongoing problem with many owners having to change springs, I have bought 2 x new springs and had them fitted total costs incl repair of damaged tyre £450, I will not be as originally planning purchasing another Saab, after sales are poor and excuses unacceptable when requested they honour warranty.
