Saab service & maintenance

Asked by Aug 26, 2017 at 08:45 AM about the 2006 Saab 9-3 2.0T

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My service engine light on the dash has
started to come on about every 6-7 th time I
start the car but when I get to where a
diagnostic reader is, when you start and
stop to get a reading the check engine goes
away. Can't figure out why? Does check
engine come on for basic service like oil
changes etc? I've only had it for a month.
Any help would be appreciated! Thanks

Hook up a scanner that can pull historical codes. Some cars have a maintenance light but it comes on and stays on until reset. Most of them at 5K intervals. Check engine light is different


find a good garage for classic cars (no one else would want to work on a SAAB for good reason) and get your maintenance up to date- if you don't keep that car perfectly maintained, it will turn around and bite you-
