On another note, my boss had me drive him to pick up his car today from the shop. A new Mazda. The main catalytic converter just went out. $1500 fix.
I have never had to do a fix like this on any of my 14 Saabs that I've owned. I made sure that my wife knew this. Now two out of the three Saabs are running great and she gave in to me buying another. All may seem gloom and doom at the moment, but keep in mind that you can go with a newer, "more reliable" car, but it may not work out that way. When your brand new plastic car's fuel pump goes out, you'll be looking again for a Saab.
So my advice... start with the cheap, easy fixes and work up from there. It sounds pretty simple. Like others have said, check that a vacuum hose, PCV valve, or air intake clamp is not loose and work around the engine for the obvious stuff.
