    Hi I also have the same car with turbo being bad and needs replaced-however I do not even know how to get it off or where it is even located. It is a 1999 Saab 9-5 SE V6 3.0L with about 150,000 miles on it. Can you give me detailed diagrams of how to take turbo off and put it back on correctly? Car has been down for 2 years..where is a good cheap place to buy a turbo?

The turbo is located on the front cylinder bank, under the engine cover and heat shield. The exhaust turbine housing is integrated into the exhaust manifold so this entire piece must be removed. Contact me via email and I will provide information on where to get your turbo rebuilt.

My 2002 Saab 9-5 turbo started smoking. There is oil going into the throttlebody. Is this a failed turbo or something else?

it would appear that the oil seal on the input side of the turbo may need replacing. oil at the throttle body could also be from a faulty PCV valve operation. Have the turbo inspected by an accredited turbo specialist shop. if itr is a seal then there will be traces of oil in the hose from the turbo and in the inter-cooler pipes.

Likely has a vacuum hose leak. The hoses all die from the massive heat generated by the turbo engines. Check all the ones on the throttle for cracks.
