    Agree with Digger. Scan it. Hope you replaced DIC with an OEM. A component is getting heat soaked, and partially failing. Double check your ignition parts.

    My pronunciation was corrected by the marketing director of "O-rio"at SOC 2015. He was at the saabsite table (Orio just bought it). He quickly told me it was not a cookie! [emoji16]

    When I owned a '91S that was reluctant to start, it was due to a bad head gasket, which is common to the 2.1 engine. Bad gasket from the factory, all 2.1s eventually need replacing. Check that.
