    Hi everybody, I have had a misfire issue on my car for quite some time. It hasn't gotten better or worse and the car keeps chuggin along. The misfiring occurs when I press the throttle 50% or more. The car then shudders pretty badly. I was getting acceptable MPG, SID usually estimated around 21...

    I recently picked up a wideband kit and was baffled as to where I should have to shop weld the bung to. I know it needs to be at least 18 to 24 inches from turbo and 10 to 15 degrees so condensation doesn't build up. Can people let me know of a good convenient location with possibly pictures...

    I have a 2003 vector with an 04 2.0t engine in it. I originally had some rough idle issues that went away. But they did set off a check engine light which spits back a code for a bad upstream oxygen sensor (too lean i believe). I am experiencing poor acceleration, sub-par gas mileage, and this...

    I have a 1996 9000 CS and from time to time my check engine light will come on and I got the code checked out and it says it's the oxygen sensor. I have also been getting about 6 or 7 miles per gallon less than I normally do so I think it's time I change them. Is there anyway to tell whether it...

    The check engine light has been on my 2002 four cylinder Saab 9-5 linear for a long time (several thousand miles). I just took the lovely car to the mechanic. He told me that I need a new Catalytic converter to the tune of $900. He just read the codes off of the computer and did not even...

    Hey folks, I ended up having to swap engines out a few months ago on my '99 9-3se 'vert. Bit of a heartbreaker and probably the wrong long-term decision, but $3k+ later, I have my car back.
