Remove the four screws from the ignition cassette located in the center of the valve cover. The sparkplugs are underneath it.

There is a top panel between the 2 overhead cams that holds all the ignition wiring that is bolted in with saab hex head screws.
Once these are undone you will lift this panel off, I would suggest leaving the wiring connected and then you will see the 4 plugs underneath like most normal cars.
Make sure they are the correct ones though

Here is what I could find on it:

P1300
Random Misfire Detected. Catalyst Damaging.

Chances are that the Saab Ignition cassette is failing. You can find them on ebay, I recommend a new one since it is a common failure. Best to put new plugs in it while you are at it.

Easy to change, you just need a T-30 Torx (4 small bolts)
and one electrical connector on top of the engine. Oh and a good spark plug wrench.

A better question: how long will synthetic engine oil protect the engine? I don't put a lot of mile on the Saab 9-3, 1999.


You need to change the oil every year or 10.000 miles. The oil will be polluted with foreign material like water, sulpur etc.

My saab 95 won't start I think its the Direct Ignition how can I check it


Need year and 4 or 6 cyl. Assuming 4 cyl, need to know year and miles. Is the check engine light on? Easiest way is to swap out. Have to be careful with the DIC. Must be attached to plugs, must be upright. Could get 4 plugs, make sure it is up right and attached to computer. See if there is spark. Usually foul electrical smell if DIC fails. Also could be CPS (Crank Shaft Positioning Sensor).

Change sparks plugs on 06 hyundai sonata v6


You didn't specify whether you have the (4) cylinder or the (6) cylinder engine..... I have a 2004 Hyundai Sonata 2.4L 4 cylinder and I just changed the spark plugs in it. I believe that the 2005 2.4L engine is the same. To locate and change the (4) spark plugs on a 2004 Hyundai 2.4L 4 cylinder engine: Remove the (4) 12mm bolts from the decorative plastic engine cover. Remove plastic cover from engine and place it off to the side out of your way. Standing in front of the car, the (4) spark plugs are located laterally (left to right) in the recessed area underneath where the plastic engine cover was removed. Note: This engine has (2) coils....They are located above spark plugs number (2) and (3) from left to right. Starting with the fist spark plug on the left: Remove the spark plug cable by pulling straight up on the insulated connector. Using a spark plug socket, remove the old spark plug and install a new one in it's place. To access the second spark plug from the left, remove the electrical connector and the spark plug cable wire from coil number (1) and then remove the (2) 12mm bolts that secure the coil to the engine. Spark plug number (2) is located directly under the coil. Lift the coil straight up removing the insulated connector from spark plug number (2). Using a spark plug socket, remove old spark and install a new one in it's place. Repeat same procedures for spark plugs number (3) and (4). Note: If you have the (6) cylinder engine, the front (3) sparks pluge are readilly accessible but in order to access the (3) rear spark plugs, you will have to remove the intake manifold

Saab 9-3 1999 convertible


On 1999 9-3 models there is a fuel filter located under the pass rear door. However if this was plugged it would not kick back in after a short time. Typical suspects are crankshaft position sensor which will work well on a cold engine and intermittently cut off and on when the engine is hot. Its a cheap sensor, and very easy to change. Possibly check condition of spark plugs and the DI cassette as well. Also check function of Fuel pressure regulator. Any fault codes stored (CEL on?)
