Subject: 1999 9-3 Starting Cold OK - then Stop

Hi, I have a 1999 9-3 with about 200K on it. It's been running ok so far, but yesterday I started it in the morning (-10 C) and let it warm-up for about 5 minutes. I could hear the RPM go down as the "choke" was coming down, and then it stopped. No unusual "Check Engine" or warning messages on the SID. I tried to restart it to no avail. I let it cool down for about 2 hours and restarted it fine. It purred as usual for 4-5 minutes, then stopped. I'm thinking some pressure regulator or temp sensor is acting up, cutting off the fuel supply to the DI cassette when the engine warms up a bit. Did anyone experience this before? Any ideas? With 4, 5 minutes of run time it's tough to get it to the garage, at least to get a code reader on it and see what's up. Cheers, Ben
