    As I am sure you know Saab ceased trading back in 2012 so talking to Saab isn't going to happen. I have a NG 9-5 but it isn't a Diesel and doesn't have a DPF I am therefore unable to offer any...

    If you have the money you would be better advised to buy an original one.

    GM coolant is pink.

    I would choose the GM oil on the basis that GM owned Saab at the time your car was made.

    Yes, but there is a DI Cassette code so wouldn't it be a good idea to address the code that is present rather than assume one that isn't? Or have I been doing it wrong for the past 30 years?

    I agree it can't be fuel but there is a code for the CPS and it isn't one of the ones reported so I would be going with what the car is telling us. However, if buying a DI Cassette the cost and time...

    The knock sensor is in the DI Cassette so the first code clearly suggests that item as part of the problem. You can use a Red Di in place of a Black one but one difference is that the knock sensor on...

    I suggest that you check the vacuum hoses (3mm or 4mm rubber hoses) also check the bypass (dump) valve for leaks. Any air leaks can cause problems and the higher the state of tune the more effect...

    The clutch pedal has to be depressed completely, as far down as it will go, before you try starting the car.

    I think you have misunderstood the comment. If you know how something works, in detail, and what happens when it doesn't, you can often get to the cause of a problem more quickly than with an OBD2...

    Given that:
    Saab no longer exists to support technical issues,
    GM sold Saab before they ceased trading and will thus consider this not to be their problem and,

    No axles on a 9-5, they are drive shafts. What you describe is a reluctor ring, they crack and if the ring isn't a continuous loop they stop working because there isn't a magnetic circuit. Cracking...

    The most likely cause is a broken reluctor ring and you won't find that with a multimeter unfortunately. That is what Bruno has called the ABS ring.
