My mechanic, let's call him Rich, has a scanner of course. Is it possible that his would not be able to spot the problem you mentioned?
Or, does he absolutely need the Saab scanner?
Also, just to make sure, I drove the car again this morning, and I have good results when the engine
acts up (again, foot on the brake, no gas, at a traffic light per example), by putting it in neutral every time. The revving eases up, and I switch it to drive, like a manual transmission
car when the light turns, and accelerate gently. It is drivable that way..
I will the car with Rich again Tomorrow with your answer. I hope I do not have to take it to a Saab dealer. This was a inexpensive car I purchased for my son, and I hope it does not turn into a money pit.
Thanks for your help.
