It is like it was choking up, but then once the turbo kicked in, it shot off like the tension released from a spring. You're not really gonna know how bad things are until you get it apart. You mentioned that in 2000 Saab manual transmission, that I might need to drill holes to get to the hidden bolts. So it's either something connecting the turbo and the oil. The oil is now back to it's proper level.
Someone else threw a half bottle of Lucas in as well. . I can Eel it strong on my hand, like heat from a vent. I am going to attempt to follow the step by step procedure here, but have a few questions first. 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 will look into it further.
She has 175,000 on her so replacing the turbo wouldn't be favorable. Not sure how that happened. Check all your lines and see if any are detached and if everything is in tact you can rule that out. I threw a bottle of oil sludge remover in her, and it seemed to make the sound of the turbo a bit more sharp. First the check engine light was on at a constant, then later it was Flashing on and off over and over. She is now shifting gears better than it was when the excess oil was there, but still struggling.
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. Hope that helps and if you have any other questions, just ask. The oil sludge remover quieted my valves wight up, but still a ticking, though much lower. Otherwise, why such a jump in increase of performance? I hope it is just oil still left burning from where it never should have been. I was driving and smelled burnt rubber.
But the turbo itself is seriously still going off and well when it does have what it needs. White smoke pouring out the tail pipe and from underneath the car. It's definitely something that affects the turbo, due to the oil though. 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. And the system itself is being starved of oil due to it, but the car is running, so how can it be the oil pump?? The performance of her thereafter owed a definite improvement. 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 am afraid to drive it. 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. Oil light came on, so I put a 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. P1110 is a pretty common cel code. I doubt the turbo is failing; you would see a ton of blue smoke from the exhaust if that was the case. I came across this and found that these issues are the ones that I am having.
So the breather hose was just hanging there. Once it was repaired, the hesitation was less frequent. It is like it moved something. So I later found that I had a vaccuum leak issue due to the breather hose from the top of the engine being lose from the pcv connection having been melted off and broken. It's a more reliable turbo and will probably last the life of the car depending on how you drive.
As well as a worsening in the hesitation, more than has ever been experienced. Then the next day, the oil light came on again, as well as the check engine light, and the triangular hazard light. Hello, I am new to the site. Then, I had to take it off the road for a year or so. 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? Let me know if You think of something else.
I'm hoping it is just from the excess oil that was in her for that day. I will be doing an oil change today to take out the excess oil but that still does not fix the hesitation, check engine light, etc. It is usually a vacuum hose that has detached itself, but it could also be a number of other things. The turbo was heard loud and clear at the very beginning of the acceleration in each individual gear. 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. How loud is the upper end noise you're hearing? Would that do that if the turbo is failing? 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. I have been having some serious issues with my 2000 Saab 9-5.
I have a couple places where there is a minor oil leak, but really nothing bad at all. Just a heads up: I am not a mechanic but have done basic things like fuel pump, oil change, etc. But she is still running, just hesitating big time. Thank You for Your reply, I am going to look it up and learn about it. I need some advice, Please. Some guy checked the oil and said it was fulll, but still put another quart in.
