Mcdevito75 here, With all that work, you most likely have a bad either elctrical or fuel connection, have the shop check the fuel connections on the motor along with fuel pump operation and all connections with-in the ignition sytem, (sytem that makes spark to the plugs) If all checks out fine, change the cars ignition Module.

Hello, I am a Saab technician from upstate new york. It sounds to me that the turbo wastegate rod may be seized to the turbo control valve. The easiest way to try to fix this is to spray penetrating oil on the turbo valve/ wastegate rod and work it back and forth with a pry bar. Many times u can also heat this up with a torch and pray. If those two things don't work than the turbo valve itself is seized into the guide hole machined into the turbo. good luck.

Shot timing belt on 95 900 SE Saab

Your post mentions a belt in the title and then a chain in the text. If V-6, it is a belt, if 2.0 turbo, it is a chain. In either case, these are interference engines, meaning that the pistons will make contact with any valves stuck in the open position. Accordingly, there is head work involved when the timing is catastrophically interrupted. A very good repair will involve taking the engine out to remove the cover so that new guides can be installed for the chain and also the head will have to be pulled and some valves replaced. If damage to piston crowns occured, you may need one or two of these. Some shops have figured out how to weasel the engine around to remove the cover without full engine removal, saving some time. I do not think you can get out of this for under $3,000.00, unless you find a cheap used engine and do a simple swap. Even then, it will be close.

Your Saab does not have a timing belt, it has a chain. You need to remove the chain tensioner and see how much it has extended. If it has plenty yet to go, your chain is fine to go more miles. If it is fully extended or nearly so, you are on borrowed time.

Top end knocking noise

Try doing a compression test to see if all cylinders have same reading.
If compression is low on 1 cyl, that is obviously where to start.
Check the valve clearances to that cylinder.
If valves not set too tight, then it must be piston related.
