fuel pump failure

  1. Engine start, runs for a minute and stop

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    Hello guys! My car is having some issues and I can’t find what’s wrong. Engine starts ok and stays running for a minute or so (sometimes runs fine, sometimes stall), but at the end, it will always stop and die. If I push the gas pedal, the engine stops running too. After that, it will start...
  2. 2003 9-5 died on the road

    9-5 Workshop
    Hi, I was on my way to work on Wednesday and the car died on the road, did few 'sputters' and would not start again. I towed the car back home and tried starting again - which drained the battery dead. I put a new battery on and tried again, this almost started the car and after that it did not...
  3. Check engine light, funky rpms, stalling, poor fuel economy?

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    Upon starting, I've noticed hesitation. At one point, the car stalled completely and I had to restart. While driving, I've been noticing loss of power at random times. Today, a check engine light came on and the rpms started to go up and down, without me giving any gas. Also, I've been noticing...

Anyways, I've been trying to troubleshoot my saab to see if my fuel pump has in fact gone bad after I experienced my saab cranking but not turning over completely. First of all, I've done all the reading and...
  6. Fuel Pump not getting power (1999 9-3 Conv.)

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    Hello All! Alrighty! I've done a lot of troubleshooting so far. As stated, my 99 9-3 convertible is NOT getting power to the fuel pump. I did not know this at first, so I replaced the darn thing... I should have metered the wires first. *sigh* Anyways... I've tested the pumps with external...
  7. Fuel Pump went at 35K

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    I drive a 2007 9-3 2.0t convertible which I purchased last year. Without any warning (SID or sound) the engine died on the highway and I lost all power steering and brake functions. The car was towed to the dealer where they said it was the fuel pump had failed. Has anyone else had trouble with...
