When this type of a problem occurs you must have the electronic engine control module scanned for fault code before any other work is done, it is step one.

The problem may be a dirty throttle body. Clean the throttle body with a recommended cleaner and you might want to add some injector cleaner to your gas tank. You may also want to check your vacuum hoses and make sure they are in good repair. I hope this helps. Good luck.

I have a 1997 SAAB 2.0 Turbo and it has started to run rough after it warms up and when driving it loses power and runs very rough until power taken off. Any ideas?


suspect low fuel pressure to the injectors
run the fault codes to determine where the fault may be before you spend money

Why does it shut down while driving?


First, do not run engine low on oil. Next, run tests when it has failed. Spark to plugs? Correct fuel pressure?

Rough idle while in park, cutting out on highway


It could be something as simple as a vacuum line,but sounds fuel related. Possible pump.get a fuel pressure reading done and if pressure doesn't hold.....suspect fuel pump

Put 4 New Spark Plugs in Now engine starts And cuts right back off wait few minutes will do same .


Well something is either cutting off the spark or the fuel soon after starting. Myself I would suspect a fuel starvation issue. Before you go spending a lot of money have someone trouble shoot it. If fuel it could be a pump, filter, or pressure regulator. Makes sense to know which before you go replacing parts.

2000 saab 95 wagon,2.3t. oil pressure light came on. checked and filled oil, about 2 quarts. light did not go out. driving on highway, car shut down when check engine light came on. now car will only run...


Oil pressure sensor blocked or faulty. both oil level sensor and oil pressure sensor activate the oil light. engine goes into safe mode and shuts off ignition.

Oil light comes on under deceleration.oil levels are fine


I would guess your oil pump is going out causing it to loose oil pressure. If you continue to drive your car in this condition it will most likely ruin the engine. If it is not your oil pump it is something else causing you to loose oil pressure and I would have it looked at soon.

2002 pt cruiser dies then fires right back up randomly going down the highway


most of the times when the car cut out it is cause by the crank angle sensor you wait for it to cool down and it will fire back up again, best way to check it is to take a bottle of water with you and try to locate (which is between the fire wall and the engine on the driver side on the engine block) where the crank angle sensor. when the car cuts out pour the water on the sensor to cool it down if the car then starts right away that is the problem.
