2004 Saab 9-3 Aero 2.0T Auto engine light on...

Hi, the other day while driving the engine suddenly stalled with no warning. would not turn over when i tried to restart. got a ride home came back with some tools to see if i could get it started. turned key and it started up but the engine light was on and it felt like it had very little power. shut the engine off and disconnected the battery then checked for anything that could be blocking the intake or exhaust, found nothing. reconnected battery and it started it up and it was back to normal. a few days later started it to go to work and engine came on and had no power again. did the battery thing again and now seems fine but i'm afraid to drive it anywhere for fear of being stranded again. what could cause this? thanks for any input.

    Have had same problem. First, drove to my dog's kennel and everything fine until I came out and car wouldn't start - panel indicated "Battery not Charging" Had it towed and they replaced alternator, same thing happened 3 days later, towed again and starter replaced. Drove from repair shop and same thing happened when I stopped at the store and came out to start. Have determined it cold starts fine but after driving for awhile and then turning off engine for 10 mins or more, it won't restart. If I wait for engine to continue to cool (about 20 minutes) it starts again. Sometimes when I restart after waiting to cool, I have limited power. If I turn off again and restart I get full power back. Today for first time it stalled when at a stop on the highway. Sorry I can't offer solution only empathy.

2004 Saab 9-3 Aero. Coolant tank and car beginning to not start.


coolant is what makes the car keep cool. it wouldnt keep it from running. sounds like a gas problem. check the fuel pressure and check all the fuel compartments. take it to a mechanic.. not Saab. they will do it for cheap maybe nothing.
