90 900 turbo no start

10-08-2006, 11:12 PM
Found a good deal on a 90' 900 turbo with 120k on the clock. Its got a no start, cranks and starts then dies. Whats the common issues on theese for hard starting, i heard the cold start injectors are a common issue. The car would be a great car to buy, fix, sell for some profit but I dont want to spend lots of $$$ to fix.

hmm i own a 97, i assume you already have checked the battery (obv) the alternator? Saabs are very tricky cars electrical wise, soo once the car gets running make sure everything works...... check the spark plugs as they are a vital part of how a saab works, even more so then any other car out there because the direct igntion system, which i think is awsome because it cuts change your plugs time in half......

I am sorry that I am not writing about this care. I am looking for VeeDubMechanic. I live in Eau Claire, WI... about 1.5 hours east of Minneapolis. I saw a previous post that you thought I could find updated wiring harnesses for my 99 Beetle. I tell you... this car comes down with all kinds of problems. This is the newest one. First they said that an assembly for my right headlamp will cost no less than 270 for the part. Then they said that the reason that I have been back in five times to change my bulbs is that I need an updated wiring harness. VW here said that a wiring harness costs $170! They must be talking about a whole wiring kit or something. Anyways, I am hoping to find VeeDubMechanic since he seems to know what's up and that he is in the same area as I am and might know what I can do. I cannot pay $500 dollars to get my right headlight working right! I hope you can help! I can be messaged if you click on my name, I hope! Thanks!
