Cambelt failure is no joke and unfortunately, if this happens to you, major expensive engine damage is the inevitable result. As one of the hardest working parts in any vehicle, the cambelt drives and controls several important parts of the engine, keeping everything working together with perfect timing. Changing it prevents snapping, cracks or tears and so significantly reduces the risk of costly damage.
Check your Diesel Particulate Filter too!
If you own a diesel Saab, it will have been fitted with a Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF). This needs regular cleaning to ensure that it doesn’t become blocked and inoperative. If most of your journeys are in stop and go traffic or short drives, soot loading builds up and the DPF warning light will illuminate. But you can avoid this ever happening by having a DPF and fuel system clean for only £69 extra whenever your Saab is serviced.
Now the good news!
