2000 Saab 9-3 S turbo issue?

G'day,

I'm Marcel from Tasmania.

My Saab, a 2000 9-3 S lost power.
According to the " dealer " the turbo died.
Unusual he said, because the Saab has only done 96,000km.

So now I'm looking for an other turbo.
Everywhere I find turbo's for the B205, but mine is a B204.
Will a B205 turbo fit?

Does anyone know which turbo there is in mine Saab?
A GT17, GT1752 or GT1752S?????

Where on the turbo can I find what turbo it is?

Hope someone can help me out.

Cheers.
Marcel

It's stamped on a plate on the compressor housing facing the belt side of the engine. If you post some photos we could probably tell you.

Here in the states, b204s had a t25, b205s had a gt 17. You should stick with what you have for ease of fitting. It's a pretty easy repair, give yourself 4 hours or so first time...

Do the t25 and gt 17 look the same?
For what i can see on photo's the gt 17 looks like the one on my engine.
The gt17 is a Garrett?

Tomorrow by daylight i will remove the heat shield and have a look.

Thanks

2000 9-3s would have the GT17. I only cautioned because of your location... Not sure what Saab sold in other markets. I could tell by looking at the way the intake tube attaches... Either two 10mm bolts for a t25 or a vband clamp for a gt17.

Ok, I'll have a look later on.
I just found out I have a " red di ", that means a red cover casette.

The intake tube is bolted on with 2x 10mm bolts.
So it is a t25.

How do you know if it is the wastegate or the turbo it self that is broken?

first see if the arm on the waste gate has fallen off, if not grab it and work it back and forth to see if its seized. Turbo's that are bad usually seize, break shafts, make noise, cause smoke. Any cel's?

Nothing is broken off, no noise and no smoke.

I can still drive it, only a bit less powerful.

the T25 on my old 9000 died because it wasn't spooled down.The shaft siezed.I wonder if that's what happened to yours?

I got one off a parts car I bought for 250 and rebuilt it,worked like a charm.

I think it's interesting your 2000 9-3 is a red Di and T-25,my 2000 U.S. model is a b205 with the black DI and a gt17.

What do you mean with spooled down?
This is my first Saab and first turbo, so have no idea what I'm talking about.

You need to search, lots of info on these cars and turbo's. This could be a bad vacuum line, bpc, turbo, limp mode, plugs, DIC, etc...
Also, if the shaft is broken you will not see it. Pull DP off and check shaft play. Pull delivery pipe off and check for oil.

By spooled,I mean letting the car idle after running it hard,to let the turbo get cooler oil in it before shutting it down.
