Get down to Advance Auto Parts and buy a can of "SeaFoam" and add it to the tank per instructions...Drive at least 100 miles...If the problem persists, I'd guess a O2 sensor (x3) is bad/fouled...Look to spend $200-400 depending on the mechanic you use...DO NOT GO TO THE DEALER!
Good Luck

I have a 2003 Saab convertable and the traction control light comes on from time to time. When it does it causes the engine to stall a low idle


That same thing happened to my 2002 Saab convertable and I believe it ended up being a failed throttle body sensor. It was quite the pricy part, I think after everything was said and done it was around $1,000. Good luck!

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.
