Subject: [Saab c900] Start, Fires, Dies


Ho hum. After a productive afternoon replacing the defective heater valve I had my 1985 8 valve injected 900 idling away quite happily to get up to temperature so I could check for coolant leaks. The car idles a bit too fast so I took the opportunity to just back off the throttle stop a touch. It started to hunt then died. No worries thought I, just speed it a little... It now starts on all four cylinders, runs for a second or two then dies. Throttle position has no effect. It was low on fuel but now has over two gallons, the pump in the tank can be heard to run for a few seconds and then stops, fuel reaches the filter and is under pressure. The car ran perfectly this morning. Ideas? I'm a bit stumped and it's in the way where it is at the moment. -- Simon
