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.

Very cheap way to change the appearance of your Saab 9-3 1999 to 2002 or

2004 Saab 9-3 Starter Problem One Click No Start
2004 Saab 9-3 was not starting, just one click. I thought it was the
battery at first, and then the starter, but found out the wire connected to
the starter had corroded and broke off. The easy fix was to run a new wire
from the alternator to the starter.
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"

2011 Saab 9-5 Aero Turbo6 XWD Start Up, Engine, and In Depth Tour
In this video I give a full in depth tour of the 2011 Saab 9-5 Aero.
Released as a late 2010 model, the 2011 now boasts a panoramic glass roof
along with the great redesign. Overall makes the car have a much more
stately appearance and further set it in a more sport/luxury sedan class.
I take viewers on a close look through the interior and exterior of this
car while showing details, over viewing of features, and noting unique
styling cues to the vehicle itself. I also show the engine and the details
of it, start it up and see how it sounds under acceleration. A thorough
tour/review of this car designed to give others a greater overall
appreciation of the vehicle.

Saab 9-5 SID LCD Display Repair
My repair of a Saab SID display, which had lost pixels on the LCD screen.
Ultimately, I discovered the ribbon cable had deteriorated beyond repair,
and I purchased a replacement ribbon cable. A $400 unit was fixed for a
little more than $40.
