Hi Biggles, "let me tell this to jou" (did you see film happyfeet, ya must go)
Pretty easy really, it was a great car for my family. I was diving (very fast, wont say as it could get summons and caution!!!!) when it just died.
Apparently an earth strap going from Gearbox to Engine got dissconnected and thus the Engine Management system and I include Air mass meter went.
(This was in 94/95 SAAB 9000i) It was more to do with the garage than the car I would imagine. ANyway, I tried to kick up a shindig but no one listened so I had to pay £1200 Irish to get fixed (only getting back what I had before).
I decided tokeep it for at least one more year to pay for itself. It worked great until one day I bcked it into trailer overhang which was not in my mirrrors. SHit happens, so new back window (you know the big ones coupe style. When the twots put it in the never used the seals and it filled with wter everyday and I couldnt find the fault...It had to go.
I never went back to that dealer ARCH Motors in Galway. They have since lost the SAab agency. I really liked that car till its untimely end.
and so it is...
