After a head gasket replacement, my car will still not start. The timing looks ok (the Exhaust camshaft might be off by one tooth) There seems to be fuel getting to the engine, the battery is good, spark plugs are new. What could be wrong with my car?

Saab 9-3 cylinder head retorque
I'm showing how to do the cylinder head bolt retorqueing on a Saab 9-3 but
this will work for 900 (1994-1998) Saab 9-3 (1998-2003) and Saab 9-5 and
maybe the 9000. It's very vague but it shows how and what to do.
Saab 9-3 Vector 1.9 TiDS Steptronic Full Review,Start Up, Engine, and In Depth Tour
With so many entry-level luxury car choices from Germany, Japan and
America, it's easy to overlook the Swedish Saab 9-3. But the truth is, the
Saab 9-3 could be a great match for buyers looking for a spacious, safe and
comfortable automobile with a proven safety record and a distinctly modern
Today's 9-3 lineup is the latest in Saab's long line of near-luxury cars
dating back to the 1970s. Offered in a variety of body styles, with
abundant cargo space and frugal yet powerful engines, it has always
represented a competitively priced, character-laden alternative to the
me-too near-luxury offerings from other manufacturers.
Though the unique and practical 9-3 hatchbacks were discontinued after the
2002 model year, the 9-3 family continues to be offered in multiple body
styles: a four-door sedan, two-door convertible and four-door wagon, the
latter called "SportCombi." All utilize small-displacement, turbocharged engines that extract big power while
salvaging respectable fuel economy. Recent examples have been made
available with V6s as a step up from one of Saab's traditionally lively
four-cylinders. Furthermore, the Saab 9-3 tends to be priced aggressively,
at least in sedan and wagon form. Convertible models have always been a bit
less of a bargain.
Among the Saab 9-3's chief shortcomings are its lower performance
thresholds and somewhat cut-rate interior in comparison with German and
Japanese competitors. Still, it remains a good bet for near-luxury car
shoppers seeking something different in a class of look-alikes.
Current Saab 9-3
Today's Saab 9-3 is sold in three body styles: sedan, SportCombi wagon and
convertible. Sedan and SportCombi models feel spacious, with low floors,
upright windows and seating for five, though three in the rear seat can be
tight. Legroom in particular is a sore spot. Convertible models have a rear
seat for two adults of small-to-average size. Cargo room in all models is
The 2.0T trim is only available with front-wheel drive and is powered by a
turbocharged 210-horsepower 2.0-liter
four-cylinder engine mated to either a six-speed manual or five-speed
automatic transmission. When equipped with front-wheel drive, the Aero trim
comes with a turbocharged, 255-hp
2.8-liter V6 mated to a six-speed manual or six-speed automatic
transmission, and rides on a sport-tuned suspension. The all-wheel-drive
Aero XWD gets a higher-Boost version
of the turbo-4, making 280 hp and 295
pound-feet of torque. We'd suggest driving enthusiasts opt for this choice.
Another option is the turbo X limited
edition of the Aero XWD, which features larger wheels, lowered and firmer
suspension with self-leveling shock absorbers, larger brakes and sportier
trim.Inside, dramatic two-tone color schemes with lots of matte-black
finishes create an intense, distinctly Scandinavian ambience. Longstanding
Saab-isms remain, including a floor-mounted ignition switch and a "Night
Panel" button that darkens all non-essential dashboard lights to reduce eye
fatigue. However, the climate and audio controls are now generic,
ergonomically friendly GM units.
One of Saab's strongest suits is safety. Thus, the 9-3 offers two-stage
side seat-mounted airbags, curtain airbags on sedan and wagon models,
whiplash-reducing head restraints, stability control and antilock brakes
with Brake Assist.
Editorial reviews have praised the Saab 9-3 as one of the better-handling
front-wheel-drive cars on the market, while taking note of its comfortable
front seats and cavernous cargo areas, even in the convertible. The Aero in
particular, although expensive, has a lightweight, agile feel missing from
many of its competitors. Complaints focus on a sometimes harsh ride
quality, turbo lag and a sense of
quality far short of its German and Japanese competition.Shoppers
interested in a used Saab 9-3 should note that the vehicle has changed some
since 2003. Originally, the vehicle was available in three trim levels. The
base Linear and more luxurious Arc shared a turbocharged 175-hp 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine
and nearly identical styling. The Vector wore sportier clothes, rode lower
and offered a 210-hp version of the same engine, which was also optional on
the Arc. The 9-3 Convertible appeared in 2004, followed by the SportCombi
wagon in 2006. In 2005, Vector models were renamed Aero.In 2006, the base
Linear trim level and its weak motor were dropped, while the Arc was
renamed 2.0T and gained the 210-hp engine as standard. The Aero received
the 2.8-liter turbocharged V6 that year.
All 9-3s got an interior freshening for '07, including less bizarre climate
and audio controls. The all-wheel-drive Aero sedan and wagon arrived for
2008, along with the limited "turbo X"
~ 700hp Turbo Saab, 312kmh (194mph)
Extreme turbo Saab + 300 kmh
Many viewers have misunderstood this video, so I explain it a little:
-Speed at finish line (1mile/1609m) is measured. Time is not measured.
-First Saab does 1st and 2nd gear with ~half throttle. Second Saab has
limited Boost for 1st and 2nd gear.
- three extra seconds between 0-100kmh typically means ~30meters wasted.
But three extra seconds used in speeds close to 300kmh, means almost
Here is equally powerful RWD cars (if not even more HP's) These RWD's are a
lot faster between 0-150kmh, but
these Saabs are faster from
150kmh-300kmh. You get the point when you compare speeds at finish line.
-A Saab 9-5 driver pushes a little too much throttle @3rd gear and looses
traction. He lifts a throttle and pushes it back, but too much again and
then he gears up 4th, a bit earlier than planned. (optimal is@205kmh).
Earlier that summer I broke one gearbox when pushing too hard on 3rd gear.
With new gearbox and at later event, I drove very gently on first three
gears to avoid breaking it again. I pushed WOT for the first time on 4th
gear @ 190kmh. You can hear it clearly on following video. Engine tone
changes totally around 200kmh. Incar video is from 299kmh pull (at 1 mile
race) Something happened to camera during the run. So I didn't get any
incar video from a 305kmh pull. To see that run from the start line, please
see my other videos.
Here is incar video until camera dies. Start is @1min.

No Start, Diagnostic Basics - EricTheCarGuy
This video is a response to the Honda Main Relay video that I did. I've
had a couple of people come to me with questions about no start conditions
and how they should go about fixing them. This video is a starting point
to a series that I plan to cover on this subject. The point I make in the
video over and over is, don't make assumptions. Assumptions get expensive
and can frustrate you to the point of homicide, follow these simple tips
and it will lead you down the path of success.
