    So probably for about 2 weeks now I've had this issue on start up. If I let it idle for too long, the engine will stop. It also did shake on startup the first few times it started doing this for about 15 seconds. After running for about 2 minutes, the smoke does not continue to expel. I am not...

    My husband and I recently purchased a 2003 Saab 9-3 and love it! I wish I would have done some research prior to letting a friend try to install an aftermarket radio. He removed the ICM and cut all of the wires. All of the wires have been reconnected but the car will not start or crank. All of...

    Hi all, About a year ago my 2006 Saab 9-3 convertible started jumping into limp mode. Reading the error code with an OBDII I found the error code P2138. This code suggest that there is something wrong with the gas pedal sensor. As I have no experience with doing any repairs myself, I...
