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?
#11 of 13 brakes not to full potential

2001 Saab 95, 86,000 miles. When I depress the brake pedal, I need to press hard to stop and then again, it does not feel like the hard stop my other Saab or Volvo have. Do I have to buy Saab brakes, I went with aftermarket, Wagner Thermo Quiet premium brake pads.
#12 of 13 brake light on, but brakes are fine

What could this problem be? is it the brake sensor?
Also the speedometer is not working, is this related to the brake light issue?
#13 of 13 Rear wheel siezed
Jul 17, 2012 (5:16 pm)
Has anyone has a rear wheel just refuse to turn after the car sat a while?
My 95 SE wagon sat for a year, outside, in the northeast.
Started fine with a brief jump, but the left rear wheel is siezed. Tried flat-towing it a few feet in neutral to break it loose. Ploughed a furrow in my gravel driveway.
EBrake handle is in disengaged position.
Car goes in and out of first and reverse (auto) just fine. But in first it goes nowhere much. In reverse it just sort of climbs up on the rear wheel.
Pulled the wheel off. used chemical rust remover, then cleaned and lubed liberally. poked, prodded and pounded on sturdy parts of caliper assembly. Outboard pad is not siezed to rotor as I can easily wiggle it with a big screwdriver. Inboard harder to futz with without disassembly.
I'm about to head out and pull the caliper on that corner, or try anyway.
Meanwhile I'm wondering if the trouble might be eBrake rather than brake? And if so what to look for, do? Or something else altogether?
Thanks so much.
