No acceleration 2001 saab 93

Need more details but that reminds me a little bit of a 9-3 we had that had a failed MAF (Mass Air Flow Sensor) that lost a ton of power and was groggy until we swapped it out with one from another car. Won't coast baffles me... maybe the turbo is seizing up??

My 2003 Saab 9-5 Aero 4-cyl Turbo Won't start. However, I have power in car, lights windows and radio works. But it won't turn-over. It could be Starter or Starter Relay. I can't find out

Ok, those systems might still work because the not require as much energy as the starter. Check the Battery Voltage with a good Voltmeter. If below 12, there might be your problem!

2002 saab 9-3 turbo car starts and runs when driving during acceleration turbo boost shoots to the red and car shuts down P0300 random misfire what can I do.

by the sound of it you could have one or both of these problems.
1. a vacuum leak which is causing the car to over boost.
2. ignition fault which is causing the car to die.

1. look in the engine bay and look for small rubber hoses, check all you can find and look for cracks or splits. make sure you check the small rubber hose on the turbo itself.

2. you may have a faulty spark plug, coil pack, HT lead (depending on which engine you have)

1 is probably your boost problem
2 is your cutting out problem
i hope this helps

Service engine soon light

if certain that car has no sensor then carry on with self preservation (plus,leads,filter and such) as the warning light does come on sometimes to tell you to service/ take to a garage to service.
