    Hey Guy! I have a new to me 2002 9-5 2.3LT. It Starts fine and has no engine lights but it does idle ruff and while driving it feels to be surging (not turbo related). I just bought the car and it had zero gas in it so I just figured that was the cause of the surging, filled it with premium...

    I've an x reg 9-5 2.3 Aero estate which runs like its on rails, even after 140k. But the thing that bothers me is that after a while (probably 10-15k) the EML light comes on and stays on until I pull fuse 17 (20amp) and that seems to clear it until the next time. As I say, the light coming on...
