2008 Saab 9-3 2.0T Misfire


Topic starter

Hi Scotty, 


My automatic 4-cylinder 2008 Saab 9-3 2.0T has 175, 332 miles on it, and it has been misfiring A LOT. The OBDII codes I found are P1312 ($07E8 SAAB), P1314 ($07E8 SAAB), and P0301 ($07E8 Generic). I bought the car recently because I needed something for my commute to school and work and was honestly very desperate. I don't know what those codes are referring to (other than the misfire in Cylinder 1), but the scanner says to consult the service manual which I don't have. My question is: where can I acquire a service/repair manual for a 2008 Saab 9-3? I have tried looking for it online but can only find the owner's manual and service/repair manuals for older model years. Can I use the 2006 Saab 9-3 manuals to help me fix the problem?


Thank you Scotty, love your channel

The Saab WIS (Workshop Information System) is available online, it's what the dealers used for diagnostics:

A Tech2 scan tool is very helpful for working on those. (The engine is pure GM in those cars.) You might also want to ask on Saab-specific forums:
