I need an engine diagram for a 1995 saab 900 se V6


A SAAB dealer should be able to print one out for you. BTW that engine is practically identical to the V6 used in a caddy Catera, and Saturn Ion. Those diagrams would be the same, so you might want to search that also.

APC Solenoid Valve Knocking


The APC valve regulates boost pressure (via the wastegate) to avoid over-pressurising the engine. It ensures that a safe boost pressure isn't exceeded. Don't run with it disconnected or you risk blowing the engine!

Problem areas can include: knock sensor on the engine block (also poor quality fuel, dirty engine causing knock); engine ECU.

You need to provide more information about when this happens:

hard accelerating? (likely poor quality fuel, dirty plugs/engine causing knock) and general driving similar.

idling? possibly a knock sensor or ECU related problem

What rpm? what boost gauge pressure?

as an outside chance, maybe a sticky wastegate

Check Engine Light!


Sounds like you will need to have the codes read at SAAB dealer to confirm no fautly sensors have caused this to happen.
There may still be a bad component that is triggering lamp.
