1.9 diesel engine advice.

Pal of mine has just bought a 2006 saab 1.9 tid with 39 k on the clock, i was wondering if that engine (GM ) is the same/similar to Alfas 1.9 engine regarding waterpump related problems especially considering the mileage & age.

I don't think the diesel engines are the same as these are FIAT auto Multijet engine, thought it was only the petrol which kinda GM (same block on the 2.2 and 3.2), but could very well be wrong

It is the same engine and does suffer defiantly from the same problems with EGR and (occasionally) swirl actuators.

Water pump I don't know; it's entirely possible that its the sort of thing that SAAB/GM may have sourced from there own parts bin that paying FIAT for the privilege of using theirs.

So am I correct in saying this:

Diesels : (1.9) FIAT Auto production/Manufacture sold to GM (not seen a 2.4 diesel Saab)
Petrols (2.2, 3.2) : GM production/Manufacture sold to FIAT/Alfa

The engine code for the 1.9JTD is Z19DTH and is used by Fiat and GM

You'll find it in such vehicles as Fiat, Alfa, Saab, Vauxhall, Cadillac.

Wiki Article

All the best
