NG 9-5 engines - any issues to look out for?
« on: 14 September 2018, 07:46:26 AM »
I frequently read on these pages and other Saab forums/Facebook pages etc about people having problems with 199TiD versions of 9-3ss and OG 9-5s. The petrol engines seem more reliable, but they still have issues with turbos, timing chains etc.

What engines where in the NG 9-5, and where they carry over the engines that were already on the 9-3 OG 9-5?

Or, were they new GM derived units, and if so, what issues did they have?

As NG 9-5s drop in price, they are looking more attractive, but they are also higher mileage, so is there anything we should look out for when buying one? ;)
