  3. Throttle position sensor or something else?

    9000 Workshop
    The other day my check engine light came on with my 1996 Saab 9000 CS and gave me the P0121 code. From time to time there will be a bit of a delay when I am stopped and go to give it the gas. It kind of bogs down and then all of a sudden its like full throttle. Does that just mean its the...

    ...so after figuring out that it was NOT the head gasket and getting it put back together, it fired right up. There's a video of it starting and idling on my facebook, but it's not public unfortunately. It idles great, 850-900 RPM (guessing, sorry I'm used to a Honda tach where every 100 RPMs...

    It's been ages since I posted any update to the "jerky low-end throttle response" drivability problem I've been having with my '06 9-3SS. To summarize, when I let the throttle out gradually, there is frequently (but not always) a total instantaneous slamming-shut of the throttle plate before...
