Default '99 9-5 3.0, Starts but then dies

Hi, first time on this forum and running out of ideas.
I've a 1999 Saab 9-5 3.0 wagon and having starting problems. The car starts and revs up to about 1000 revs, but then stalls. I crank it again and after about 5 seconds it starts again. I do press the gas pedal a bit to coax it along. It runs fine after that. So far, my local garage (south Florida, USA) has, Cleaned the Throttle body & Masa air and re-set base idle. Also changed the fuel filter and lastly the whole fuel pump. It's getting expensive and I still have the same problem. Any ideas out there that I can give my mechanic, before I throw more bucks at him??
