Did you read the link about boost pressures and why you only get 200mbar?
Hi Mike,Did you read the link about boost pressures and why you only get 200mbar?
Hi!The plastic valve is the same part as used on the early Saab 900 "APC" Turbo.
Part # 7517477
The entire boost regulation system was produced by the same company that supplied Saab
My valve leaks under pressure between the tan/yellow top cap and the brown body.
Plastic valve dIagnostic tips can be found on Saab forums
I plan on replacing mine with an all-metal aftermarket part in September.
Read the thread on there bringing it back , the part about knock sensors reducing boost. Probably your problem, it was on mine okThanks!
I still have to read through it all on something with a bigger screen than a smartphone, but that's probably the info I'm looking for!
From the quick glance, it looks to me like my car might have a transient boost kit fitted?!
Hello Nuge - reading this thread with interest, I wondered if you could link me to the thread you mention here about cleaning your solenoid? I also have a 1991 that I am trying to 'get up to scratch'.Thanks JR!
I found a post on the Australian forum where the show how to dismantle and clean the solenoid, so I'll try that first. If it doesn't help, I'll get a metal one!
Mike, I've ordered new knock sensors - Valeo ones, used in Dacia Logans and hence cheap 😀
In my dreams! I really admire Mr DeTomaso himself - you just don't get car CEOs like this anymore.Hi Detomaso,
I can't remember 100% which hose is the right one, but I think it's the one straight at the front. Follow the hose and line towards the turbo, you need the line that comes from roughly the center of the turbine (the silver part of the turbo).
P.S. do you also own a DeTomaso?
