Rough Idle/Stall on Cold Start - Saabnet.com Bulletin Board
I just purchased my first Saab, a 2000 9-5 SE, and I am really enjoying it! However, I have some problems starting it some mornings. It will start and run for a couple seconds, then the revs drop and it idles really low and rough for a few seconds. Sometimes it pulls out of the rough idle and runs normally, sometimes it stalls and I have to re-start the engine.
Does anyone have any ideas what might be happening? My dealer sure doesn't, and it has just had its 30k maintenance done (new plugs, etc.).
Thanks in advance!
