Mountain Dew... nectar of the geeks!" > That's correct, they didn't change any wires. When I had it in for repairs they tried a new direct-ignition module,(that's the big red thing), but they told me that that didn't work. They changed the four, (what I thought was could "sparking plugs"), small things that's under the direct-ignition module. One of them looked a little different then the others and I thought that was the problem, but nooo... I will talk with my local SAAB repair shop tomorrow and I hope we'll be able to localize my problem. I forgot to describe how the car runs when I think it only uses 3 cylinders. Symptoms: A different sound from the engine, louder.. The stering wheel vibrates, infact the whole car vibrates more or less. The acceleration is a joke, it feels like driving a Volvo 240 not a SAAB Turbo. When I accelerate the car vibrates a lot. Sometimes I can hear the engine starting with 3 cylinders but then "fix" it self and sometimes I've to drive for 10-15 min before it starts to run normally.
