Engine number on a 1999saab 95


Blowing blue smoke is NOT an issue with the turbo, it is an issue with either piston rings or valve guides. You need an engine overhaul.

I had white smoke from the tail pipeand getting hot ... I had the heads done , gasket valve . and resurfising. when I got the saab back ,I drove it about 49 miles started driving slugish , bufs of black...


Sounds to me like they did a bad head job. No pun intended. lol, White smoke indicates moisture in exhaust but black smoke indicates a oil leak. I would take it back and have them check the job they did. If the car is over heating then the head gaskets are pretty much blown.

Will need more info, but possible problems are turbo issue, spinning and stopping and spinning, any smoke / white smoke out tail pipe? Could be fuel pump on providing enough fuel. Need more info when / how often, other issues.

Depending on the overall condition of the engine, it could have worn or frozen rings, worn valve guides or the turbo you installed is worn out. These are driven by exhaust pressure and if their bearings are worn, you may be getting a mix of compressed air from the turbo and oil that is seeping past the compressor's internal seals.

Smoke out of exhaust and loss of power


sounds like your turbo let loose. The smoke is the coolant that runs thru the intercooler which cools the turbo. I would say either remove the turbo from the system , or replace it.
which engine is in your car?
w/o B234R eng; (T25 turbo) [rare]
or
w/B234R eng (TD04 turbo) Garrett type? (tag72623 Garrett pt# 452083-15)

for a used Turbo you are looking at around $150 plus shipping. but you will need to know which turbo you have of course.

The intercooler is gonna run an additional $50 or so (Hollander part number 317-51291) plus shipping.

give me a zip and tell me which engine (or turbo) you have and I will be happy to get you hooked up with the salvage yard closest to you that has these parts.

White smoke from exhaust


White smoke from exhaust = water into the cylinders, when this happens it usually means head gasket gone or starting to go.
Check the water level, and take the car to the garage for a check up , if it is the head gasket, as I think, you risk to blow the engine at any time.
