  1. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Just replaced all ignition coils due because of missing in the engine on heavy acceleration. Coils fixed that problem but now the car will intermittently die. Will do this while idling or a while driving. No codes have been shown yet. Any ideas on what could cause his? Crank position sensor?

    Well my 1997 9000 was running pretty well?? I had a check engine light and had the local parts store put the checker on it and it spit out that I had a bad front O2 sensor.
