#1 of 13 fuel pump going out??
Jul 15, 2007 (3:13 pm)
I have a 1999 Saab 95, auto, 4 cylinder. I believe the fuel pump is going out. The car will sometimes stall at a stop light and when I stepped on the gas hard it sound/feels like it's stalling but gets going again!! I already checked the fuse, what else can it be? The car has of 100k on it and it's the original fuel pump.

I'm new to this site and to Saab's but when is the last time the fuel filter was changed? If you haven't, you should ... it's cheaper and easier than the fuel pump, and will help the fuel pump live a longer healthier life.

Fuel filter is the good place to start. However, your problem is due to a bad or leaky check valve. The check valve is located next to your fuel pump under the rear seat. Be very careful when inspecting this check valve or anytime working with the fuel pump, since you don't want to snap off any lines.

Hello jpkenny, Ive been having the same symptoms with my 2001 Saab 95 and can't quite figure out what the problem is. Did you resolve yours and if so what exactly was the problem? Thanks

We had to replace the whole fuel pump system.

Thanks for the quick response...one more thing...when u say "the whole fuel pump system" you mean everything that makes up the fuel system (fuel pump, fuel filter, fuel pressure regulator) or just the pump?

We had to replace the fuel pump only. I'm not sure how it stopped working but it did.

Could also be the throttle position sensor, which requires replacing the throttle body. The computer should show a TPS fault code.

Brakes are hard as rock. I have been told Master Cylinder or brake booster (vacuum booster? not sure if this is the same as brake booster). Does anyone know what would cause this and how pricey to fix?
