hey everyone,
my saab is having a werid idle problem. Its always at 1000rpm never under, this is cold and warm. When I shift from park to drive, or park to any gear, its very rough, almost like its going to stall. Any ideas?

PS My mechanic told me this is normal saab thing? Any ideas?:eek:

im a domestic guy, and all my domestics idled in neutral at about 700. The car is rough when shifting from gear to gear (its auto). Its especially rough when the Air Conditioning is on. Any suggestions?

The cleanable idle air control is sticking/clogged. This is a tune up item, one of many systems to service...

Good luck in finding a mechanic who knows about this.
The Saab idles at 800-900, but the computer "corrected" tach shows 1,000 rpm..
Cold idle is 1,200 - 1,300 for a minute or less..from what I observe with the '96 900S

The RPM's do drop just a bit when going from P to anything else, especially on the NA. A LITTLE drop is normal...to the point of a near stall is not.
