2001 Saab 9-5 will crank but won't start

I have a 2001 Saab 9-5, three months ago it died with no warning and then wouldn't start. I replaced the coil. It ran great for about a month then it wouldn't start if it was hot. I replaced the crankshaft position sensor. It ran great for a month. Then it died again. I checked everything, the coil was dead. I replaced it and the fuel filter. Now it cranks but won't start. Any suggestions, I love the car but am frustrated.

Let us know what you have spark, fuel or air? Pull plugs and attach to the DI, ground plugs and see if you have a spark. The 01 9-5 will accept a standard (Autozone, Advanced auto, Napa) fuel pressure tester on the fuel rail, what kind of pressure are you getting? Is the fuel pump running. pull up the back seat, there is a flap with the fuel pump there, does it try and run when you try and start it?

Any electrical problems, aka key replacement or twice problems?

ETA: search for Neutral safety switch (NSS) spray trick, if its an automatic.
