    Hey, I apologize if this has already been discussed but title says most really, it accelerates perfectly fine as long as I don't press down to far, changed spark plugs, clean air intake and manifold I believe, and then did a compression test on engine, that came back fine. Thank you guys in...
  2. Classic Saab 900 (1979 - 1993)
    Hi, I have a 92 Saab 900S turbo convertible and she runs incredible except everyone once in a while she sputters and jerks. She will smell of gas and stalls when it is hot. I believe it is gas related. Either the ethanol in gas is not conducive to her well being, or there is water in my tank, or...
  3. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Hello, I recently ran out (or nearly ran out) of gas in my 9-3. I sputtered into the gas station and filled up.However, the car has never stopped sputtering. When first starting the problem is not so bad. However, it progressively gets worse as I drive, and it doesn't take long. I am receiving 2...

    Hi my '97 CS has been ocassionally sputtering while accelerating (at lower RPM-1500-up) as though it was misfiring or had bad gasoline. It has 146K miles on it and I did the fuel filter about 10 months ago. My gas mileage is still around 30 (estimated) while this is happening so I don't...
  6. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Near the end of a 300 km (+/-200 mile) run yesterday I noticed the engine (2L Turbo, non-DI, 5-speed) wasn't as smooth as normal. At a stop light the idle was rough and kind of sputtering (not unlike a 2-cycle outboard motor in idle). Low-end power is poor too but once it's up to speed again, it...
