9-5 2001 2.3 turbo saloon. Engine warning light came on. After diagnostic check garage said just a phantom light and it had switched off. Came on again few days later but engine ran normally for approx three weeks.Today engine cuts out as soon as throttle lifted but runs ok if some revs. As automatic difficult to drive.Anyone any ideas of possible fault. Always used fully synthetic and regular oil changes. Any ideas/suggestions appreciated.

Did you check what code you got? If you don't have a reader, you could take it an Autozone or similar - they can read it for free. Could be several things wrong. But think you could get better response from the forum with ideas if you could provide the code(s). Could be Crankshaft Poisition Sensor going bad, Direct Ignition Cassestte, Turbo (have you seen any unusual smoke clouds coming out of exhaust?), MAF, other sensors, etc., etc.

Thanks for your reply. Problem seems to be due to split. corroded pipes in the emission system and not as serious as thought. Thanks again
