2006 Saab , 9-3 2.0T AUTO.
Has always had the CEL on and said misfire on the code .
I tuned it today to stage 1 , and the CEL went away BUT ,
When i stomped it from a stop , it started stuttering and the CEL
Started flashing :cry::eek::cry: . Wondering if all new plugs , and all new coils will fix this
Before i spend the money !

Any help would appreciated .. THANKS :D:D:D:D:D

Welcome. It's your coils. A tune will always make the problem more apparent.

Make sure to not cheap-out on the coils: http://www.saabcentral.com/forums/showthread.php?t=535961

You can get the Duralast coils from autozone - they're like $80 each after 20% coupon. Basically repackaged OEM black-tops. NGK PFR6T-10G plugs are good also, gapped to .09. Whose tune did you get? Some tuners have their own pkugs recommendations.

Get NGK BCPR7ES. They are like $10 for 4.

You still need a coil. Get one Duralast like suggested and swap it down the line until you find the bad coil.

so swap it then drive it until the stutter goes away ?
Instead of buying all brand new coils ?
And definitely buy all new NGK's

Yup. Put it int he first cylinder. Drive it around. No good? Put the old coil back in and try the second cylinder. Lather rinse repeat.

Now about the plugs do I have a choice of some , and what is the gap on them . I only ask because I see multiple gaps everyone uses .
