Question about 1996 Saab 900
Hi I have a 97' Saab 900s. When the temp is 30 or less I randomly have a hard time starting my car. Some days it is fine some days it takes me 15-20 min. The check engine light is not on. The car will start for a second and then die. The time is stays started will get longer until finally it starts. If I try to press on the gas when it first starts it will immediatly die. The engine will rev on its own (without pressing the gas) then after about 3-5 min of warming up it is fine for the rest of the day. What could it be?
Engine coolant sensor and Intake air sensor bad -----tech terms( ECT and IAT) The way to check these you need to hook up a scan tool to the cars computer and both of the readings for these sensor should read the same. If reading is off by 2 degrees that's ok not too off. And it should be in the morning before you start your car up. Thats the time you check it. hope this help
