Question about 2000 Saab 9-3 Viggen
Was working fine this morning. Stopped for coffee and then problem arose. Just bought it the other day, thinking it would be a very reliable car. I (looks well maintained and ran fine till this except for throwing a 133 (O2 sensor) code.
Now I discover that local mechanics won't even look at it. Had it towed home. Lots of charge in the battery
I have basic tools and basic knowledge from fixing old American cars when I was younger. I do my own brakes and fluid changes, etc.
I'm thinking starter or starter solenoid but if anyone has confronted a similar situation and knows of something else worth checking before I go swapping parts I'd be grateful to hear about it. Thanks.
Check all the large cables, at battery , engine block and starter for corrosion or loose bolts, you can also do the tap the starter with the hammer test, thats what you do if you have a full battery and solenoid clicking, means starter is on its way out
