Why does it take a few seconds to pick up speed after each stop.


Asked by Nov 18, 2014 at 07:54 PM about the 2003 Saab 9-3 Linear

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Runs good but engine light on & with each stop & go takes a few seconds to pick up speed. It feels like the car is holding back a bit.
