02 Viggen intermittent no spark... - Saabnet.com Bulletin Board
I've recently had some intermittent starting problems... DIC has about 4 years on it but very few miles (well under 30,000 would be my estimates, but I would need to check my records). I'm getting fuel; I can hear the pump running and I can smell it in the tailpipe after a bit of cranking. Doesn't even stumble or sputter.... no signs of spark. I removed the DIC and rotated it around a few times (it's oil filled and it was very early this morning... seemed like it could do something and I didn't have any other ideas), and when I put it back in and tried to fire it up it still took a while but there were signs of life (some stumbles). It finally fired up and runs perfect once it's running. No check engine light at any time.
What do you all think? DIC???
