Default 1997 SAAB 900SE questions

Hello everyone,

A few questions that if can be answered, will really help me out. I have a 1997 Saab 900SE Turbo with 88k miles. She's been running great until about a week ago. She's been hesitating when i hit the gas and the check engine light came on. Also, on saturday the TIME FOR SERVICE alert came on. My questions are:

1- Can anyone recommend a quality SAAB mechanic in the NYC-ish area? I can drive anywhere realistic. I'm totally unfamiliar with any SAAB mechanics in NYC and any help would be great

2- Any ideas on what is wrong with her? the TIME FOR SERVICE alert, i'm guessing is for the upcoming 90k mile service?

Thanks for your time,

Paul

Sounds like the mass air sensor. Have it checked. I had the same problem, hesitation, stalling, and poor gas mileage. And change the oil.
