Disadvantages of the Saab D207L engine
- Most engine problems are related to intake manifold swirl flaps.
- When worn, they begin to close at random, wedge, and may even fall off.
- The fuel system is very reliable and only the metering valve regularly bothers.
- At high mileage, nozzles often start to pour, but they are quite suitable for repairs.
- Sometimes the exhaust manifold cracks or deforms in the area of the 4th cylinder.
