hi guys

i have a saab 9-5 2.3 Turbo ecopower

i fitted an induction kit too it and it kept on stalling and the noise was awful so i took it off,

since removing it and fitting the standard airbox on it seems to stall if i accerlate hard in first them push in the clutch and let the revs die down. its doesnt do it all the time but its annoyingly frequent.

does anyone know what may cause this and what i can alter to combat this, also the idle seems to fluctuate when i use more electric stuff

but if it was the MAF would it not run badly all the time on idle ??? wether i accerlate hard or not??

its very strange as the car idles FINE, until i boot it in first push in the clutch and let the revs go back to idle,

normal driving is perfect and fuel consumption is good, engine runs smooth throughout the rev range too

im not sure if anyone else has had this problem

the MAF hasnt been though since fitting the filter as i fitted it onto the end of the standard intake pipe so i dont see why it should have got hit or bashed about

your help is much appreciated guys :)

The bosch valves are quite prone to this problem :confused:
where would i be looking to solve this problem do you think

i know the pipe coming from the top of the standard BOV is quite perished, would that cause it?? it seems a bit of a job to change though

well at last i cured the problem , it was a very badly perished vaccum pipe on the BOV changed it and it completely smoothed out the running of the car,

also found aq cure for the strange intake noise, the filter was too big, tried a smaller one and its fine

thumbs up all round :D
