SOURCE: My reverse lights are staying on even when car is in drive

Probably faulty reverse/neutral switch at tranny. Should be approx $20- $25 for switch, and I'm guessing 1/2 hr lab to change. Cleaning contact may help, worth a try, but doubtful.

SOURCE: rough idle on 1990 saab 900 convertible, 16V

Because the car has adaptive technology, it may take a while to reset and adjust to the new, cleaner and better conditions than those to which it had previously adapted.

Did you change the cap and rotor? if the plugs needed replacement, likely they do too

Possible other causes include:

loose or corroded connections to any electrical component you disturbed (make a checklist and tick them all off as you check them);

mis-reinstallation of any F.I. part disturbed(checklist again)

obstructed water flow through the AIC valve;

improper voltage output from the AIC valve (for LH 2.4 systems, should output 8 volt at idle, dropping as load increases; for LH 2.4.2 system output 7 volt at idle etc; testing between terminals)33 and 17 at disconnected LH connector;

possible problem with MAF.

Hope this helps

SOURCE: My 2005 Saab 93 Won't Start. Turns over clicks and

The battey may seem fine , but it most likley is weak and needs to be charged , or replaced. The clicking you hear is the ign relay or solenoid not having the amperage to fully engage the starter to allow the starter to turn the flywheel and start the engine. Also really check you battery connections , make sure they are super clean and tight.

SOURCE: Saab 9-5 blowing white smoke from exhaust

One way to check for a blown head gasket, is to simply smell the coolant reservoir. Pop the cap, and see if it smells like raw gas. Every headgasket, I've diagnosed has had this smell, even if the oil is not contaminated. Another way is to hook up a coolant pressure tester, and run the vehicle for 15-20 mins or so. If the head gasket is blown, the pressure will exceed 15 psi. sometimes as high as 25 psi. If there is oil in the coolant overflow tank, the head is cracked, about 90% of the time.
I'm working on a 03 Saab 95 2.3l t. This vehicle smokes on initial start up, then the smoke disapates, and the vehicle is fine. Another mechanic diagnosed it as bad valve seals. I disconnected the pcv system, and the vehicle no longer smokes. If the valve seals have gone bad, the vehicle will smoke on acceleration. Also if the turbo seals are leaking it will smoke more heavily on acceleration.

Check for intake manifold vacuum leaks. Spray around the intake with a can of carburetor spray and if you hit on a leak the engine idle will change.

2001 Dodge Caravan SE Suddenly got VERY loud


I have no practical experiance on this american vehicle but if the O2 codes are coming up then its possible that one of the sensors has come loose and fallen out ,but if you had it looked at by a garage somewhere and they said to replace the whole exhaust then something is amiss here and without a my head under the car i couldnt tell you from afar ,either the garage is after a easy job with a good profit margin or its fallen apart so i would advise that you ask another mechanic to have a look for you

This is usually caused by the crankcase vent valves leaking air. These valves are round and sit on top of the front of each valve cover at the front. The diaphragm leaks and causes a vacuum leak and the car runs rough.

My 2003 saab 93 lost engine power and idles very rough?


I don't claim to be an expert but mine did that once and the vacuum hose was off- also, if your exhaust is loose up fromt, the air and fuel mix will not be right and the sensor will detect that and make it run rough- just ideas,

it could be an exhaust problem. if the pressure in the exhaust is not right then the sensors could have triggered a trouble code and turned your check engine light on. i would take it to autozone and have them hook the scan tool up to the car and see what the computer has to say
