My car is a 9.3 turbo Saab. 2005. It has about 137,000 miles on it. I believe it's a 4 cylinder engine. The check engine light used to come on, but that happened long before the sputtering started.

Good, this is a OBD II car and if anything malfunctions like misfire ,bad fuel mixture this will be recorded in the management system .

What you will have to do is check what codes where recorded and post them here for me to assist in decoding them .
Once we know what code problem you have them we can start a repair to rectify your engine issue ,

Please get back with the codes .

Kind regards Greg
