I have a saab 93 SE turbo convertible 2 door 4 cylinder 2.0 and it is not running correctly. the check engine light is on and it spits and sputters and tries to die. i took it to get looked at and they said it was the mass air flow sensor. i had it replaced and it is still the same. can you help?

My Saab 900 se turbo 2.0l 4 cylinder Stals out when I push down on the gas pedal. If I release soon enough it cuts back in. any solutions?

Likely has a vacuum hose leak. The hoses all die from the massive heat generated by the turbo engines. Check all the ones on the throttle for cracks.

Hi, i have a mist fire cylinder #2 on the tester code. i change all 4 plugs but it's only run on 3. my car is a saab 900s 2.0l turbo manual 1997 with 215000 km

Check for compression on the cylinder that is misfiring. If compression is good 100lbs or better than see if the injector is pulsing( you need a noid light for this). It could also be the spark so check and see if you have spark.

Stalling/possible overheating in engine, but not registering on the temp gauge

If it is a turbo, check the Turbo BypassValve. Also check all vacuum hoses, after 100 Kmiles replace them all.

Service engine soon light

if certain that car has no sensor then carry on with self preservation (plus,leads,filter and such) as the warning light does come on sometimes to tell you to service/ take to a garage to service.
