Question about 2002 Saab 9-5
I have a 2002 Saab 9-5 Aero, with 206000 miles. The fuel pump was replaced about two years ago and the throttle body about a year ago. The problem I'm having is after driving it and it's hot, it doesn't want to start back up (this has happened three times). However, after sitting about 1 1/2 hours it starts and sometimes on the start it will run rough for a few seconds and sometimes it doesn't. About three weeks before this started happening it would on occasion have a difficult time starting with an extra 5 seconds or so of cranking needed and when it started it acted like it was flooded.
This engine is controlled by a computer, when a problem like this occurs a fault code is set, I suspect you have a loss of ignition spark going on here, have the system tested for the code(s) that is set when the part that is causing this stall fails, this fault code test is crucial to making an accurate diagnosis and repair and is always the 1st step in this type of problem, many parts stores run the OBD2 engine control system test for free, Kragen and Autozone do this as well as many others, have the test ryun and provide the fault code(s) and we will move on, otherwise this is all a guess with you buying th parts.
