2002 Saab 9-5 ProblemsEngine Dies while Driving Or Will Crank but not Start
The direct ignition cassette can fail causing the engine to die while driving, and/or it will crank but not start. The engine may also have a rough idle and run roughly. Diagnosis may discover trouble codes for random misfires.
The front passenger side axle can wear, and the tri-pod bearing is known to fail. Vibration can be felt from the passenger side when the axle becomes worn.
If the engine will crank but not start, it may be the fuel pump has failed. Diagnosis may find no fuel pressure when attempting to start the engine.
