i have a 89 saab 900 non turbo. the trouble started as i was driving down the road, now i am trying to find out how to fix it. you can only get it to start up by pushing on the gas some, wont start without the gas. if you let off the gas it will stall, or maybe idle for a few seconds rough then stall. i heard of somthing called the aic. i do not know where its located or what it is. the thing between the airbox and throttle body with the plug in which i think is the mass air sensor thing? i dont know what the problem is. it has a new cold start sensor and fuel pressure regulator on it because we thought they were the problems. any help ?

when you hold the throttle at one place it sounds good but one you let off or rev it up or rev it to where your gunna hold it it sounds bad,

also this is what happened.

when a friend was driving it down the road it started acting up i guess then it quit after she tried to keep it going by giving it gas and pumping it.

thanks i will try it , it looks like a fuel filter shape kind and is on the passenger side of the motor in the front right? i think thats the aic.

thanks for the pic, i thought that was it but didnt know for sure :p

by the way before the car died it used to idle high ,around 1500 rpm maybe more, was like that when i got it. i heard that the guy before me could of adjusted it high because aic problems before, maybe used to stall for him so he adjusted throttle higher to keep it running?

cleaned the aic with carb cleaner and wd-40.looks real clean. the problem is still there. i dont think the aic was the problem. maybe fuel filter?

the air meter is new, so ill try everything else. thanks
