Not sure how that happened. I am afraid to drive it. I can Eel it strong on my hand, like heat from a vent. Someone else threw a half bottle of Lucas in as well. But the turbo itself is seriously still going off and well when it does have what it needs. It's definitely something that affects the turbo, due to the oil though.
I am going to attempt to follow the step by step procedure here, but have a few questions first. But she is still running, just hesitating big time. Check all your lines and see if any are detached and if everything is in tact you can rule that out. Then the next day, the oil light came on again, as well as the check engine light, and the triangular hazard light. Then, I had to take it off the road for a year or so.
I came across this and found that these issues are the ones that I am having. While You were replacing those turbos, do You think they were possibly just blocked off by something or do You think they definitely needed to be pulled out and replaced? As well as a worsening in the hesitation, more than has ever been experienced. I am actually not exactly sure about how a car even works, but I have studied the human body and am seeing the similarities. She has 175,000 on her so replacing the turbo wouldn't be favorable. Hello, I am new to the site.
Thank You for Your reply, I am going to look it up and learn about it. White smoke pouring out the tail pipe and from underneath the car. You're not really gonna know how bad things are until you get it apart. The issues that I have been experiencing with my Saab is: Originally, I bought the car and it ran wonderfully. Would that do that if the turbo is failing? It is like it was choking up, but then once the turbo kicked in, it shot off like the tension released from a spring. What the different indications are between these two different alerts, I do not know. As for the turbo, replacement isn't too terrible but you have two options: 1.
The oil pressure light in conjunction with the triangle and check engine lights as well as the smoke out of the exhaust suggests to me that your turbo has failed and needs replacement. The performance of her thereafter owed a definite improvement. I threw a bottle of oil sludge remover in her, and it seemed to make the sound of the turbo a bit more sharp. So now I have an overabundance of oil in my engine, and an oil light on, with the top of the engine's ticking, knocking, worse than ever. The code that was pulled up for the check engine light was P1110.
I have a couple places where there is a minor oil leak, but really nothing bad at all. Hope that helps and if you have any other questions, just ask. That is when I came across this site, Your thread, and thinking that the oil strainer is clogged and I need to clean it or I am going to have a blown engine. The oil sludge remover quieted my valves wight up, but still a ticking, though much lower. Someone said it is the oil pump that went, and that the oil is not getting to the top of the engine, in turn, causing the loud ticking,knocking.
She is now shifting gears better than it was when the excess oil was there, but still struggling. Thank You for Your feedback. Some guy checked the oil and said it was fulll, but still put another quart in. Well, I noticed that it only did this about 70% of the time, and the difference between the other 30% of the time where it did not hesitate, choke. You mentioned that in 2000 Saab manual transmission, that I might need to drill holes to get to the hidden bolts. P1110 is a pretty common cel code. About three months of average driving, I began to notice a hesitation when trying to accerate into the start of each gear, mainly 1st, 2nd, 3rd gear.
It's a more reliable turbo and will probably last the life of the car depending on how you drive. But my Saab has a ticking, knocking sound coming from the top if my engine that has gotten increasingly louder the passed to weeks. I'm hoping it is just from the excess oil that was in her for that day. The turbo was heard loud and clear at the very beginning of the acceleration in each individual gear. It has to be oil because when I put the sludge remover in her, the top of my engine got quiet and the performance in the turbo was obvious enough for even my 6 year old to notice.
So it's either something connecting the turbo and the oil. It is like it moved something. How loud is the upper end noise you're hearing? I need some advice, Please. I was driving and smelled burnt rubber. Just a heads up: I am not a mechanic but have done basic things like fuel pump, oil change, etc.
Otherwise, why such a jump in increase of performance? I have been having some serious issues with my 2000 Saab 9-5. Oil light came on, so I put a quart in. When I put it back on the road, she ran real well, other than a basic oil change, etc, she just needed a battery replacement. I doubt the turbo is failing; you would see a ton of blue smoke from the exhaust if that was the case. Let me know if You think of something else. I do have a detached, breather hose from the top of the engine, and it is pouring out hot exhaust from it and that has never happened before.
