Depending on the miles, a MAF/IAC cleaning might/should be in order. Saab 4 cylinder engines are really nothing special, being a British Leyland/Triumph engine in sheep's clothing, so to speak, the electronics are Bosch, again holding little surprises as they are nearly identical to stuff found on a Subaru.

If bad, like the mighty Subaru, the "check engine" light will be on (of course the two are not exclusive together), there is also a knock sensor, looks like a Subaru one, same result if bad (retards timing 10 degrees, puts check engine light on). The electronic engine management is almost identical between Subaru, and Saab. (one is "the original" the other is Memorex, there is very little difference, other than the Saab parts are cheaper!)
