Question about 1995 Saab 900

1 Answer

900 Saab V6 extended cranking time

I installed a 1996 Saab 900 V6 engine into a 1995 Saab 900 V6 car and the car will crank up after the engine turns over several times. If it has been sitting for a long time, it will crank up immediately, but it runs rich. I have replaced the fuel pump, fuel check valves, fuel pressure regulator, fuel injectors, the air mass meter, and the engine computer box (fuel control module). I need help; any suggestions would be most appreciated. ( JR

My 1995 saab 900 se v6 ingnition turns on but dash lights do not and the car will not generate spark but does turn over. Sometimes it starts. Ignition or CPS?

ignition ,i think and either a crank sensor or an ignition module ,but as this is a vehicle built for the american market as a V6 wouldnt sell here only seen diesel volvos unless its an older 240 .I did have a V6 given to me once it was a renault engine but i sold it for scrap to a portugese man who took it back to portugal as he wanted the body parts .This had an ignition module and a distributor ,think it was a 93 or a 94 but V6 petrol at the price of fuel here ??and it was a automatic ,its the dash light here thats confusing me when it does start do the dash lights come on ?? if so then i would hazard a guess and say CPS

When doin the timing belt on a 94 saab 900 dohc v6 are the timing marks suppose to move after you adjust the tentioners

Sort of. If you have the slack on the wrong side, it is possible for you to end up a tooth off after adding the tension. The only way to be sure is to manually turn the crank 2 turns, and line the marks back up again.
Make sure you only go the right way. You can't back up of you over shoot.
If it is half a tooth off, there is nothing you can do about it. But if you are a whole tooth off, release the tensioner and do it again.
But remember the movement of the crank means only half what the movement of the cam means. So you can have more slop in the crank than the cam.

1996 Saab 900 SE is stalling and shuts off when I start to come to a stop. Engine light came on with an !. Couple times it would start and just die. had to hit the gas to keep it going. sometimes this...

just had to replace the fuel pump on my 1999 Saab 9-3 with 130 K after being frustrated with stalling over the past 6 months. Earlier attempts to fix the problem were to replace the crank sensor and purge valve but that was just a waste of $600.
It's always something with this car unfortunatley!

I need an engine diagram for a 1995 saab 900 se V6

A SAAB dealer should be able to print one out for you. BTW that engine is practically identical to the V6 used in a caddy Catera, and Saturn Ion. Those diagrams would be the same, so you might want to search that also.

Extended starting time

Sounds like an ignition problem..
The Direct Ignition module in the turbo model can fail but is easily tested and replaced.

Remove turn the , Direct Ignition module put the spark plugs in the holes, ground each plug to the negative battery terminal by use of a wire about 2 feet long and stripped at each plug. Crank over the engine over watching the spark plugs. If there is a problem with the cassette, one of the plugs will have no spark or a very weak spark. Also, when you turn the ignition key off there should be a shower of sparks that runs all of the plugs simultaneously several times.
DANGER BE CAREFUL ! ! ! EXTREMELY HIGH VOLTAGE! There have been occasions when the Direct Ignition module would test ok when turned upside down but would fail when turned back over to install into the valve cover ?
Also: Oil leakage from the individual coils of the Direct Ignition module have also been a problem. Oil leaks can be identified by noting that there is oil surrounding spark plug hole.
Hope this helps.
Cheers MMP
