: '89 9000S starting problems

13th January 2003, 10:22 PM
I have an '89 9000S that doesn't like to start cold, much like the symptoms described here (http://www.saabcentral.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=6292).

The other symptom of note is that, when cold, I have to turn the engine over for 15-20 seconds before it finally catches and I can stomp in it to keep it going...

I was going to try to clean the IAC as described here (http://www.saabcentral.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=6933), but I'm not sure exactly what I'm looking for on the non-turbo car.

Any other tips for this high mileage car? I'll no doubt be back with more questions :cheesy:
