    Engine on mine (99 Saab 9-3 Convertible Auto) almost stalls if I brake hard - it's an auto but it's similar to the effect you get if you don't drop the clutch on a manual when you brake. A local garage had it for 2 days and changed a hose somewhere on the engine, and thought they'd fixed the problem, but they haven't.

On 1999 9-3 models there is a fuel filter located under the pass rear door. However if this was plugged it would not kick back in after a short time. Typical suspects are crankshaft position sensor which will work well on a cold engine and intermittently cut off and on when the engine is hot. Its a cheap sensor, and very easy to change. Possibly check condition of spark plugs and the DI cassette as well. Also check function of Fuel pressure regulator. Any fault codes stored (CEL on?)

You might have picked up some water in the gas some where. Put a can of Dri-gas or some other brand of fuel system cleaner/stabelizer. it should fix your problem.

Check all battery terminals and 12v power feed connections are clean and tight.
Check all battery chassis and ground connections are also firm and in good order.
Check any in line 'Maxi' fuse connections are firm.
Check for water ingress in any cable loom or bulkhead connector exposed to the water spray.

Car feels sluggish driving then sudden loss


Has the check engine light gone on? The focus is going into 'limp' mode to avoid damage to components, due to some problem. Even if there is no check engine light illuminated, bring it to a parts store for a free check of any codes stored in the cars computer. You need this info to figure out what is wrong. If after having the parts store scan for codes you still have questions, re-post them with the codes here.
