Those are only in turbo models. I'd start with a bit of a tune up. Replace those wires, plugs, cap, use Saab parts. Replace the fuel filter. Replaced the air filter while you are there for good measure, but that's not the problem :-) I would do these all unless they've been done recently. All of these are easy DIY jobs. If she doesn't have a repair manual and you want some guidance, order a Haynes manual from Trollhatten (www.cybertroll.com). You can't buy a repair manual for that car at a local store in the USA. If you don't want to DIY, find an independent mechanic who specializes in Saabs. If you post your state/area we may be able to direct you. BUT, WE NEED MORE INFO... the above may be a waste of time... Does the car have any electrical power when it "dies" ? Do the lights, horn, radio work ? Is the battery extremely old (original maybe?). Saabs are known to be sensitive to bad batteries... although the turbo cars are more of an issue IMHE. Tell us more about what it does when it "dies"... what works, what doesn't, how it gets going again.
