di recall

i asked the local saab dealer to run my vin previously and they told me i just had a lug nut recall in vehicle cause i suffer from the alarm issue.
Never the less i am leaning towards a bad di cassette again from the salvage yard due to the soot left on my new platnuim plugs. Which resembled the old ones i pulled out, from when the initial issue occured (those plugs where about two weeks old). i did a idiot check of other things like fuel pressures which was fine. I think i have to let the yard know about there mishap.

maybe a bad di ?

After i filled up with gas..... the unsual thing is i filled up at a known good station. Plus i have already just replaced the fuel pump. Hmm i'm guessing that the di i got may have been a bad apple. Is there anything i should know about matching a di to my vehicle other than colour? I heard something about numbers on the units. If the p0340 is a result of a bad cassette, i have a sigh of relief. It wouldn't be the first time i would be chasing two different issues and tried to threat it as one.
If anybody has any more info please speak up thanks guys i'll keep you posted.

SaabDriver87 The camshaft code is usually related to an internal fault in the D.I. I would try finding a good D.I. and go from there.

dan-the-kid Did this happen before or after you filled up on gas?

Misfire? or timing?

What's up saab nation..........
i drive a 99 saab 95 and a month ago i was at the gas station filling up when it started to have a moment.(lol)
I got a rough idle and vehicle died on start up. I limped it home under throttle..... got out the obd2 reader and pulled random misfire codes. I thought at first it had to be the di cassette kicking the bucket. (the vehicle has 170k on it pretty sure it's original.) Now today i got a used di from the salvage yard from a vehicle that had "rapping" issue, so i thought the ignition would be fine. i put it in and now i got a p1300, p0300, and p0340. Now i expected the first two codes ( po300, p1300) but the p0340 (camshaft position sensor bank 1 low circuit) through me for a loop. The vehicle does actually sound like it is out of time. What i am wondering i guess is whether or not it's a timing issue, or ignition ( bad di cassatte from salvage)?
Also i guess is there anything i should know about about purchasing di cassettes is there something other than colour matching ( red, black ) should i look for?
