They'll use the ISAT (Intelligent SAab Tester) to interrogate the fault code(s) stored in the ECU. Wonder if the fact the motor was changed is relevant to any fault code stored in the ECU. It in effect was never energized after the timing chain went bad. On the other hand, if all they can do is change the DI and ECU in five minutes, which I doubt, I can do it in the same amount of time. SAAB, or any other automakers for that matter, has taken the wrench out of the hands of weekend mechanics like myself. coxinga -- Coxinga/ The 17th century warlord, son of a pirate, who was bestowed the last name of Ming emperors.
