  1. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop

One time it happened 3 times in a row before it runs. But after it starts up it runs perfectly fine. No...
  2. 99 & 90 Workshop
    Hi. My 99 won't start. She cranks long and strong, but not even a sputter. I replaced (competently) the fuel pump, points, rotor, condenser, fuse, relay, warm-up regulator, etc. I also checked as many of the electrical connections as I could. Might it be the ignition switch?
