Question about 1994 Saab 900

1 Answer

Will a 9.3 2.0L engine interchange with a 2.3L?

I have a blown engine in a 1999 9-3 2.3 Turbo two door. I have found someone that has a 2.0L four door and am needing to know if they are interchangeable. Plus, what will be the major obstacles in the installation.
Thanks Paul

    Thanks Thundergod,
    Here is the exact situation. I have found an individual that has a 9-3 that has been in an accident, but the engine still runs fine and he is willing to sell the whole car for very little. So, I would have access to all the salvageable parts. But, like I said it is a 2.0L and my engine is a 2.3.

    Paul

    Largest problem with non-identical swaps is that accessories may have different mount points and computer will not operate different engine.

If you are ready to do some extensive harness swapping and have a good factory wiring diagram to work from, I see a lot of headaches coming your way. Used to be that you could put just about anything into anything. Now, it turns into a wiring nightmare. If you want to make this a project car and don't have a time limit, go for it. If you need it as a daily driver, then It may be more than you want to invest as far as time and headaches are involved. Been there, done that and won't ever again!!! And was in the business since '67!!!

A6 turbocharged. Whyu does it smoke when it covers a 120km per hour?


I am going to say 'blown turbo'. As I understand it, they needs replacing every few years. They are susceptible to heat and incredible revolutions. They have to be lubricated, the seals go, and you get smoke.

On start up bit like exhaust blown near air box


If you have a Turbo charged engine the gaskets on the turbo are probably the culpirt. If you can lift and support the car on jack stands. Remove the lower shield from the car and inspect the turbo. You may have to remove the right frount wheel and any sheilds in the wheel well to see the turbo. The Turbo seals require relitivly high engine RPMs to seal properly. The Turbo starts to work about 1500RPM. Is it Gasoline or Diesel? The Variable vane turbos used in most USA,VW's after 1999 will start to work slightly earlier. The type of engine oil you are using, is it up to WV specifications could also be a factor. Not all synthetic oils are alike.
Upon inspection look fordark grey/black sooty deposits indicating where your leak is comming from.
