ID:	250482 I have no clue what this means or what to replace. I was going to try ignition module but car starts and doesnt typically die. I unplugged the ignition module while car was running and it didn't stall out, no change in motor at all. Could this mean its faulty ?

Can't read any of those. Please post codes.

"Car is parked and cant run it, it starts but runs like ****."

If you let it idle like **** for awhile does it clear up (like 10 minutes awhile)?

Pending codes you provide to us, might be worth doing a compression check on cold engine. 2008 is right in the bad intake valves era.

If i let it run the check engine like will flash and then stop, it will run the same.

Codes are

P0300, P1340 and P1343.

Also on a live scan it checks ok on most but this:

MID: $30 TID: $06
Lean to Rich sensor siwtch time (calculated)
Min: 8,320 Max: 45,107
Current: 65,520

^^ The hell does this mean?

I will be doing a compression test, just of course trying to narrow it down on a tight budget. Thank you for your help.

Fitted any coils lately as p1340 is camshaft postioning sensor which the B207 engine doesn't have,the code can be thrown up by wrong coils fitted and what do you mean by ignition module..
Unplugging stuff on a modern car with engine running containing sensitive electronics is not a good idea..

Ignition module or ionization module (same thing)? And I replaced the CPS on my car last week. I also have switched coils and swapped cylinder 3 with a new coil pack (yes Saab oem) and no change.
I've been reading alot on this issue and I think I'm going to try changing ionization module with a new one. A while ago when driving the car if I would get into it on the highway it would flutter (like a misfire) but I remember now at one time it gave a code p0303. I cleared it and it went away. So this problem gradually got worse. Could ionization module fail over time?

Lots of people claim Saab OEM but what exactly did you buy?> Link plz.

P0300 means multiple cylinders misfiring. Could be ionization module.

ionization module fault code is p1312...If the p1340 appeared after replacing/fitting the coil then by the sounds of it,it's not OE..

The coil pack was "tried" out on the car through eeuroparts. I spoke with one of thr sales guys there in my area and he helped me troubleshoot. So it was the Saab \mistsubishi coil. We put in on cylinder 3 when I was only getting code p0303 and there was no change. I also (without having known like I do now) bought aftermarket coil packs before we did above test and I put back the original that where on my car.

Was it Proparts? Or is that one off the car too and no back to all the old coils?

the aftermarket coils are NOT being used.
i went back to the original coils seeing that the test by switching coil for cyl 3 didnt change anything. my original coils on the car are oem. ive even switched coils around on car and still get misfire cyl 3.

im going to purchase ionization module from eeuroparts next day or 2 and really hope thats my problem.

Default replaced ionization module

After replacing the ionization module There was no change in the motor. Still misfiring on cylinder 3 with code P 0303 .

I took the spark plugs out and noticed On spark plug four there was a little bit of oil yet again on the bottom of it. Could this be causing my problem?

Hi, Have you checked the fuel injector on cylinder #3? I had a similar problem on my car where I was getting all of the misfire codes i.e., P0301, P0302, etc.



I was advised that it was possibly my ECM but that was not the case. So I bought a new set of injectors and my problem was solved.


Just a thought. Good luck on getting your problem resolved.


Best Regards,


Todd
