The fuel pressure might be low(fuel pump , pressure regulator)
You may have vacuum leak somewere in intake system.
Bad air flow sensor , throttle position sensor etc...
Multiple causes for case like this.
Probably better take it to a workshop , unless you have knowlage and tools to check all those components.

    I believe the fuel filter is directional.Check to see if there's an arrow on the filter indicating fuel flow direction.The arrow should be pointing to the fuel line running to the engine.

How can I test the fuel pressure on my Saab? It randomly died like it ran out of gas full tank, began with a mildy rough idle and ultimately died a few seconds later.


Look for a test port on the fuel pressure regulator. It will look similar to the valve stem on your wheel where you add air to the tire. Connect a test gauge there..

04 saab 93 turbo ran out of gas yesterday put 3 gallon in the car turns over but will not start???????


you may have to crank for awhile to purge the entire system of air. If that doesnt work you may want to check the fuel filter and fuel pump. If you ran the vehicle dry then all the junk that was sitting on the bottom of your fuel tank is now in your fuel filter and could have clogged it.

I am changing the Fuel Filter In my 1991 SAAB 900 Turbo I bought it from someone who had it sitting in their yard for 3 years and though It would be good preventive maintenance to flush coolant, change oil...


LOOK UNDER CAR FUEL FILTER LOCATED FORWARD OF FUEL TANK. RELIEF FUEL PRESSURE BY DISCONNECTING THE ELECTRICAL CONNECTOR AT THE FUEL PUMP OR REMOVE FUSE.CRANK CAR UNTIL DIES FROM LACK OF FUEL. THEN REMOVE FUEL FILTER USE IN LINE WRENCH AND OPEN WRENCH.THIS KEEP YOU FROM DAMAGING FUEL LINES.WHEN INSTALLING FUEL FILTER THE ARROWS SHOULD BE POINTING IN DIRECTION OF FLOW.

92 VW Jetta ran great one day and wouldn't start again. Daughter ran it out of gas, changed the plugs, put gas and gas line anti freeze still nothing. thinking fuel filter, are there 2 filters? and where...


First, you should Make sure that is the problem. Usually if your filter is clogged enough to kill the car, if you wait 10 to 15 minutes the car will restart. The fuel will eventually seep thru the filter. You more likely have a relay or fuel pump problem if it is fuel. Try removing the air filter and spraying carb cleaner into the intake, if it is a fuel problem, it will start. If it is a spark problem it will not. Most vehicles have a filter inline about half-way between the tank and the engine underneath the car. If you jack the car, trace the 2 lines from the fuel tank tds. the engine. There will probably be a cover to protect the filter.

92 Ford 7.3 non-turbo won't start - worked fine minutes earlier


this may sound stupid but the next time this happens take some ice cold water and pour it over the injection pump.if it starts what you nhave is a bad pump.this is usually caused by someone washing off a hot motor and what happens is it changes the clearances just enough that hot, the pump cannot reach min injection pressure. the injection pump is located in the center front of the motor
