Saab Problems? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello, my name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I have noticed that your question was not getting a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.If you did not have this problem before replacing the air filter then go back and make sure the air filter housing as well as the intake hose is properly sealing and that there where no other lines disconnected and or knocked loose during the install. Check this for me and post back with the results and we can work from there.
One thing you should try is to disconnect the negative battery cable and then take some carb cleaner and a soft cloth and givce the throttle body a good cleaning, after doing so, reconnect the cable and start the engine and allow it to idle for 15 to 20 minutes to allow the computer to relearn the closed throttle values.
Well then the next step would be t scan the computer system and see if there are any fault codes setting.
The code P0101 inundates a performance problem with the MAF (mass air flow sensor) , have you tried cleaning the MAF with some MAF cleaner/
