How do you know only 1 cylinder is working? What codes are you getting?

what plugs did you put in and what gap?

Better to see what codes it has before blindly throwing parts at it imo

He'll get back to us when CPS fails to fix it. I think Nanaimo = NGK, autocorrected. So that comes at 0.9mm if he got the right plugs.

I'd like to meet the coder who invented autocorrect. In a dark alley. 🤣

EDIT: I also strongly suspect he cannot read codes yet

You are 100% correct I cannot read codes I'm not a mechanic just the average Saab owner for the last 15 years I currently have two Saab convertibles a 2002 and a 2004 9-3 Arc and my everyday driver is a 2005 Saab 9 7x SUV!! Not a mechanic just a Saab lover

I will read the codes off to you when I get them from the mechanic he wrote them down for me!!

Cool. No sense spending more time and money without a better idea what's up.

EDIT: Ask your mechanic to read the misfire and knock counts, too.

You have 3 cars and no code reader? Buy one already.
