Question about 1996 Saab 9000
When it last worked it was jerky but boosting
Hello, I am a Saab technician from upstate new york. It sounds to me that the turbo wastegate rod may be seized to the turbo control valve. The easiest way to try to fix this is to spray penetrating oil on the turbo valve/ wastegate rod and work it back and forth with a pry bar. Many times u can also heat this up with a torch and pray. If those two things don't work than the turbo valve itself is seized into the guide hole machined into the turbo. good luck.

Turbo not boosting.check make sure air filter not clogged.look for duct leaks that join to turbo.also check waste gate for carbon build up leaks and weak broken return spring.

Coincidentally i have the same car and i also had the same problem.There is a vacuum hose that runs from the PVC valve to a t-connector.One hose runs through the firewall and the other hose connects to the turbo valve.On my engine the hose was leaking and my turbo had zero boost.I replaced the leaking portion of the hose and my car is like a rocket now.
