I have 2004 Saab 9-5 with 250k on the clock. I've owned it for a few years and its never had issues starting other than when it needed a new crank position sensor. Went to start it on Saturday morning and it wouldn't crank on the first three times I turned the key. I tapped the gas pedal on the fourth turn and it started. Had no problems starting it for the rest of the day Saturday or Sunday. It started right up this morning [Monday] without issue. I drove it about one mile from my house and it sputtered once then just died while I was at a stop light. Started it back up and it died again. Started it again and was able by keep it running by lightly pressing the gas pedal for a few moments. Drove it 25 miles to work without issue. Are these signs that my fuel pump is on its way out?
