Asked by Apr 22, 2013 at 07:59 PM about the Saab 9-5

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I cleaned the injection system with 3M injection system cleaning kit.
The car did not run any different.  Now the CEL is on.  
I took it to Pep Boys for a code reading.  
Codes are  P0300 Generic Ingnition misfire and P1300  Saab specific code.
Can you tell me what P1300 is?


2 Answers


p1300 is random misfire detected-catalyst damaging


Might you have watery gas? Does it run worse when low on gas? If so fill tank and run a stiff mix of isopropyl alcohol. Red heat.
