Saab Problems? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
This code refers to a condition where the camshaft might not be synchronized with the crankshaft, therefore combustion might be occurring simultaneously on multiple cylinders. A two-channel scope, not a scan tool is the best tool to verify and diagnose this issue.
How about some background on how this all started? Any symptoms other than the check engine light on?
Well, I thought I could guide you through all the diagnostic steps, but if you don't have access to the necessary tools, then I do think it would be best to take the vehicle to a qualified repair shop - HINT: ask them if they have a 2-channel scope and a Tech-II scan tool. If they don't, chances are they're not qualified to work on your vehicle. Run for your life... :)
