Subject: irreproducible bucking

My mechanics must think I'm nuts, because over the years, I have described tons of problems that they have been unable to reproduce. Well, I guess it's all in a day's work. THE CAR: 1995 Saab 9000CS with 167,000 miles (269,000 km; I'm in the US) turbo replaced recently because the waste gate got stuck open THE PROBLEM: Upon acceleration, especially at low speeds and low RPM (under 3,000 or 4,000), the car bucks rather hard. It feels as if I am jabbing the brake twice a second. I can get it to go away (or at least lessen) by backing off the accelerator. Any advice? Thanks. Tom Reingold Noo Joizy
