Nathan, I had somewhat similar symptoms in a '92 9000 standard.They were described in a previous post. Check your socket connectors in wiring harness for secure connections. And of course vacuum hoses are included in rounding up the usual suspects. Resp'y Rod Subject: '92 9000 Loose socket connector pins Date: Mon, 17 May 1999 00:07:07 -0500 From: scrapiro <> Newsgroups: While on a recent road trip, in the vicinity of Memphis, Blue Bell's engine quit. Prior to this event, the engine had stumbled at infrequent times enroute from DFW. The stumbling was attributed to possible water in the fuel. Prior to the stumbling, the fuel pump had been replaced by an independent technician with several years SAAB experience/training.(The reason for fuel pump replacement was that the engine wouldn't restart after a short local trip). The Memphis SAAB dealership determined that the crankshaft position indicator connector pin was not connected (loose) and the technician left on a road test. However, he had to be trailered back as the engine quit again. It was determined that another connector pin was not connected ( ECM pwr supply) and the next road test was successful. ( The Memphis Dealership provided excellent SAAB service ) . The return trip was without incident. Mileage is 114K. I would appreciate comments as to possible causes. One opinion was that the pins had been loose for some time and that Murphy's law was activated.Having owned several SAAB's. this is the first instance of this type of mishap! Can I trust Blue Bell again ?
