1995 940 2.2 turbo hot start issue

Just got a 1995 940 free because it fails to start about 20% of the time after running fine and being shut off for a short shopping stop. Sounded like a crank sensor to me, but I don't think this car uses one. Seems to have a distributor at rear of engine head, a coil, and fuel injectors for each cylinder. Is there a part in the distributor that would heat up and temporarily fail when the car is stopped after a run? Other ideas? THANKS

Probably IS the crank position sensor-classic symptoms. It is hard to reach (of course)-behind head at top of transmission bellhousing.Not a very expensive part-try it.Will the car fire at all? If so,then it may be the IAC-try holding down the gas pedal slightly if it runs,replace this.

RE worded Hesitation issues on occasions tonight drove 15 miles stopped put in gas. Drove off got about 1000 yards engine just died had to cost to a space tried to start cranks but wont run?


Do basic testing. When in failed mode, check for spark. I suspect ignition module or coil, as these parts fail when hot and when you turn off running engine it gets hotter before it cools. Hard to diagnose because when you remove module to test, by the time you get to a parts store to test it's really cool again. Make them run test three times and tap with a pencil as you test.

sounds like a fuel issue ,do you have a vaccuum leak in your fuel line,check all fuel lines and hoses for cracks holes or kinks,it has to be somewhere between your tank and the fuel injectors,also make sure the injector o rings are not damaged or you will loose alot of suction there,make sure they are all snapped tight down in to where they go,check your fuel filter it might need replacing or you could have a weak fuel pump,or clogged injectors,i know thats allot of stuff but you start with the easieast to do first to find your exact problem

Saab 9-5 blowing white smoke from exhaust


One way to check for a blown head gasket, is to simply smell the coolant reservoir. Pop the cap, and see if it smells like raw gas. Every headgasket, I've diagnosed has had this smell, even if the oil is not contaminated. Another way is to hook up a coolant pressure tester, and run the vehicle for 15-20 mins or so. If the head gasket is blown, the pressure will exceed 15 psi. sometimes as high as 25 psi. If there is oil in the coolant overflow tank, the head is cracked, about 90% of the time.
I'm working on a 03 Saab 95 2.3l t. This vehicle smokes on initial start up, then the smoke disapates, and the vehicle is fine. Another mechanic diagnosed it as bad valve seals. I disconnected the pcv system, and the vehicle no longer smokes. If the valve seals have gone bad, the vehicle will smoke on acceleration. Also if the turbo seals are leaking it will smoke more heavily on acceleration.
