2003 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.
If the HID head lights are flickering or have failed, it may be caused by the window washer fluid leaking onto the HID modules. The washer fluid check valve for the head light washers develops the leak and drips onto the modules mounted under the head light assemblies.

Where is the fuel pump valve located?
Mechanic wants to remove head gasket to repair which is very expensive. Anyone else have this problem? I read the turbos heat up causing the gasket to dry out. Can I use an additive instead?
