Turbochargers do not kick in they always work from the time you start your engine to time you shut it off, normally the fault of turbo means you have loss of oil and black smoke of the exhaust, if there is a loss of power it can mean few things and it is only diagnostics and proper garage to tell, as well it can be a fault in the fuel system. Get it checked properly.
Both Auto Zone and Advance Auto carry the plugs you need for your Saab....you can check on-line for the store nearest you...if they don't have them in stock they can order them for you and you can usually get them the same day. I have never had a problem ordering plugs for my 1997 Saab 900S nor for the 1997 Saab 9000 and 1999 Saab 900SE that I work on for friends.....hope this helps.
The thermoswitch, if there is one*, is located on the lower portion of the radiator just in front of the turbo outlet pipe. Here is a picture: http://quasimotors.com/fanswich.htm The other "radiator" is probably your A/C condenser. You have a 1997 which is T5 engine management (begun in 1995), so there is no thermoswitch because the fan is controlled directly by the ECU from the signal given by the coolant temperature sensor. I would suspect that one of the fan relays has bought the farm. (On some cars, there were two relays, one for low speed and one for high). Here is a picture: http://quasimotors.com/cooling_fan_relays.htm For general diagnostics of the cooling system, go here: http://quasimotors.com/coolfan.htm 2 stage cooling fan wiring diagram here: http://www.thesaabsite.com/9000/9000-fan-wiring.pdf This also will tell you where to find other components to check, like the fan speed resistor, and provide other diagnostic checks.
