It sounds like you may have a vacuum leak. A good way to check for a leak is to take a squirt bottle with water in it, and with the engine COLD and the engine at idle, spray some water around where the intake mainifold and the head meet. If the idle changes you found your leak, also spray any vacume hoses. Stay away from the alternater.

sounds like your idle air control valve is defective, it controls your idle speed, Check around and get the best price you can. check your local auto parts or internet for the best prices.Eary to replace ,if you can operate a screwdriver you should be able to replace it youself..just a couple screws and a wire connection..

1995 Saab 900S - Engine stops. Oil changed, other


I hope you win your bet but, the drain for the oil is center of the oil pan. There are no other drain plugs near that. They may have drained the differential or transfer case by mistake if that is a front wheel drive. If they over filled your engine oil they should be repairing the engine though. Transmission fluid is red and it would have been obvious they drained that by mistake so I would agree that wasn't what was drained.

My saab doesnt idle well. it races and stalls and sputters. worse when cold. my mechanic says its doesnt register on the comp. analyziser. changed sensors and checked vacuum hoses. is there a chip or...


First check your battery! The electronics for the fuel system can be affected if the current isn't correct. You can also check the fuel control module....94 & 95 models are notorious for having problems with them. Check the fuel pressure regulator...the distributor....spark plug wires....ignition module....fuel pump. I hope this helps. Good luck!

My 1998 900S run fantastic until you come to a red light. While applying the brakes the engine seems to shudder (idle up and down). Now I have an automatic transmission so the idle should be constant...


try the following it usually cure s this kind of problem
Here is the most common cause of surges and stalls at stops and low erratic idle speed and rough idle, it is the idle speed control air-bypass valve and throttle valve (IAC for short), they get full of gunk over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls, low idle) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake

SAAB 900 s 1997


you should check your fuel pressure and be sure it is within spec, is this a 2.0T or a 2.3 non turbo and also this is fuel injected correct? same as the U.S.A. 97 saab 900s? if it is a 2.0 with direct ignition try changing out the DI cassette with a friend or junkyard unit to see if that solves it -Jeff also please rate
