1997 Saab 900 SE Stalls With Full Tank

My 1997 Saab 900 SE will sometimes stall when I'm at a stoplight. But whats weird is that it will only do this after I fill it up with gas. I have also noticed sometimes it will make a 'klunking" noise when I'm stopped at a light and the gas guage is about 1/4 lower then it shoud be (i.e. after I fill it up it says 3/4 full). I asked a mechanic friend and they said it was probably something wrong with wiring and it could turn into a big problem if I let it go on. Anyone else have this problem?

How to replace blower motor on a 1997 saab 900 se. I need a diagram of where it is located....thanks


The blower motor is located behind the firewall in the engine compartment.You can access it by removing the plastic cover above the firewall beneath the windshield.Remove the screws securing the firewall.You now have access to the blower motor but it has to be separated from the evaporator housing.The complete list of instruction are too many to list here.Go to the website SAABNET and do a search on the bulletin board New Generation 900 section and post your question.You can print the instructions out.

just had to replace the fuel pump on my 1999 Saab 9-3 with 130 K after being frustrated with stalling over the past 6 months. Earlier attempts to fix the problem were to replace the crank sensor and purge valve but that was just a waste of $600.
It's always something with this car unfortunatley!

Check Engine Light!


Sounds like you will need to have the codes read at SAAB dealer to confirm no fautly sensors have caused this to happen.
There may still be a bad component that is triggering lamp.
