    Not just Saab, can't think of a new car that doesn't and most 15 year old cars do. Spooky TCM side note is that sometimes the thousand little voltage surges of connecting the battery cable in a newer...

    Almost a dozen different things can make your car start and run like it's got a stuck mechanical choke and your codes all point to AC and main cooling fan voltage problems. If your cooling fans turn...

    If it weren't for all the electrical codes I would go right to valves on an 07 with 22xxx miles. With all these cooling fan codes I suggest you start under the hood with fuses and get your cooling...
