Issue / Question:
Whenever the engine get hot it loses power, if you don’t press the accelerator she idles fine when depressed its not picking up. We already changed the fuel filter and fuel pump. Its almost that feeling when there is water in the gas.

Answer:
We need to look at it, it must still have a fuel pressure test it could have a bad regulator, air flow meter could also have a problem, let us know if you want to get it in 407-629-2661

Number 4 not Firing

Car Information:
Saab/9000ce
Year: 1996
Engine Size: 4 cyl turbo
Trans: Automatic

Issue / Question:
My check engine light is on saying “#4 not firing”. Is there away to make sure it is the coil pack or could a injector do the same thing? I pulled the pack and placed spark plugs in it and they all look like they are firing. This is a pricey part and with the wonderful gas we have to use now I would like to make sure its not an injector or something else.

Answer:
We use noid lights on both the injector harness and coil to the plug. We can also look at the data stream and if not available we brake out our lab scope.
