I have a 97 900s with a 2.3 non turbo. Up until today I have had no problems with my engine. When I went to start it today it just kinda gargled so i shut it off as it didn't sound right, then when I went to restart it it started up like normal or so i thought. 2 seconds later when it attempted to idle it just shut off. after numerous more attempts same thing every time. Only way to keep it going is to keep my foot on the gas so it doesn't idle.

I took the air filter off as I thought a dirty air filter could be starving the engine of oxygen, but it made no difference.

So now I'm thinking maybe spark plugs, fuel filter, or a sensor
But I would like to hear what some of you think
Anybody else have similar problem? And any known fixes?
