Subject: SAAB 9000 (1989) misfiring when revs go over 3000 RPM

Would appreciate any help with this problem on my brothers SAAB 9000 CD 2.0i 1989. Whenever the revs hit 3000rpm the "check engine" light come on and the engine starts to misfire and stutter. Switch off the ignition and restart seems to clear it but again once 3000rpm is reached the fault appears. So far he has fitted 5 air-flow meters from breakers yards and each time it has fixed the problem but it reappears again after a few weeks (or if lucky 2 or 3 months). I don't know if something is causing the air-flow meter to malfunction or the fault lies elsewhere. Grateful for any advice. Mark
