Subject: Re: '93 9000 Aero misfire...


Sounds like a problem I had with my '93 Aero ... The 'Check Engine' light came on. So I checked it by turning the key in the ignition to the 'on' position (without starting the car). Sure enough, the light flashed three times indicating a faulty air temperature sensor, but then it flashed five times indicating a faulty throttle position sensor. So I left it for a while - and continued on my way down the parkway - when suddenly there was a 'jolt' or 'shudder' - quite violent. Almost as if the turbo was 'on' and 'off'. After that though, there was no turbo boost at all. In fact it behaved just like a normally aspirated car ... I replaced the APC solenoid (top of radiator - three hoses going into it) - as I was told it was this that was causing the 'misfire'. But, this didn't solve it. I checked the turbo wastegate actuator - but that looked fine. I checked the vacuum lines - but they looked fine also. So in desperation I took it to my local Saab garage where I was told that the diagnostic equipment couldn't communicate with the ECU and that I'd need a new one! (sod that I thought and left). So I limped back home and decided to check the spark plugs and DI cassette - and lo and behold there was a crack in the DI cassette. Now I don't know if this is what is causing the misfire - but I've ordered a new one - and will probably fit it this weekend along with new sparkplugs. I'll let you know if this cures my not-very-fast-anymore Aero ... (if it doesn't - I'll start looking for a second-hand ECU I suppose...)
