Try basic tune up (SPARK PLUG WIRES, Spark Plugs, Distributor CAP, Rotor) and adjust timing if you know how. This is the basic place to start. I this doesn't work then we move on. A GOOD tune up goes along way.

I have a 1997 SAAB 2.0 Turbo and it has started to run rough after it warms up and when driving it loses power and runs very rough until power taken off. Any ideas?


suspect low fuel pressure to the injectors
run the fault codes to determine where the fault may be before you spend money

My car is stalling when idling and sputtering when driving like it is losing power


Try some gas line anti freeze (methle hydrate) It will dissipate water which may have been at the bottom of the tank. If he put regular gas and you put super, add octane boost. and drive for half hour and it will clear.

Sputtering and stalling


Have the fuel pressure tested, running out of gas will destroy the fuel tank moumted fuel pump or cause it to run slow with the resulting loss of power.
