Starts fine when cold but after driving awhile and shut off, it wont start again. Sometimes it starts to run rough after warmed up. Replaced spark plugs, ignition module and coil packs are good.

Do you have any codes?Have you checked for codes?Also when it dies and wont start what dont you have spark or no fuel pressure?
No codes come up, and not sure about fuel pressure, haven`t checked that yet. I`m reading some posts that a weak fuel pump could cause it after it warms up. I hope thats not it as its a pain to replace. Could a plugged pcv valve do that? Thanks
Have you checked for spark when it doesnt start?Also you can rent a fuel pressure tester at auto zone.
I have a fuel pressure gauge, just haven`t checked it yet. I`ll check it and for spark and let you know what I find.
I checked the fuel pressure under no start condition and its within spec and am getting spark also. I`m now thinking partially plugged cat or muffler.
Also when it wont start check for injector pluse. The strange part is if it was a cat you should lose power and then die not run good then not start after shutting it off. Next time it wont start try holding your gas pedal all the way to floor while cranking it. Could be a bad coolant temp sensor.
It did seem a bit doggy after it warmed up some. It did die once and started again but died. I also held the throttle wide open to try to start it and it wouldn`t start.
To check for a clogged cat you need to have a back pressure test done on the exhaust when its acting up.
Can anyone guide through changing the fuel pressure regulator?

How would one know a fuel pressure sensor is bad and how would it be replaced? For Saab 9-5 1999.

While accelerating, car bogs down. Took it to Auto Zone, was told it "could" be fuel pressure regulator. How do i find and change the fuel pressure regulator? Is it difficult to do this...
