It's been quite a while since I've visited the forums. I haven't had too many problems with my Saab over the past year but now that has changed. There are 5 fault codes that my OBD scanner is catching. 2 of them cannot be identified and are probably Saab specific but I"m not sure. Anyway, last night as I was driving home I was playing around with an app on my phone that tests how fast your hits 0-60, finishes the 1/4 mile, etc. I had it pegged and at 71 MPH the Check Engine Light starts flashing, the light is always on now by the way.
This indicates that the engine is misfiring. At least that's what the Saab Manual stated. Just two or so months ago I replaced the Direct Ignition Cassette and all of the Spark Plugs with High Quality, performance level spark plugs. I've had to change my crankshaft position sensor 3 times in the past 2 years or so. I was stranded at Denny's a few weeks ago because my car wouldn't crank. It started fine at home, I ate breakfast, walked out of the Denny's and tried to start my car. All of the lights came on as they usually do when you begin to start your car and then all I get is a "tick" when I turn the key over. I tried jumping the vehicle off (thinking the battery may be at fault), I then tried to find the starter to see if any connections were loose from it as I had to remove it when putting on an Oil Pressure Sensor a while back. Nothing bad there...
So I've had the engine light on with the same 5 codes popping up on my OBDII scanner, my car won't start randomly and now my check engine light is blinking indicating that the engine is misfiring. I've had more trouble with this Saab in the past several months than I have had with ANY other vehicle I have EVER owned in my life. I just need a reliable mode of transportation....
Can anyone offer any insight into this issue? I will assume the codes and descriptions will be desired? Let me know you anyone needs them and I'll post them shortly after.
Thanks in advance!!!
