From the IRAS-PSC, 97 sources with steep FIR spectrum and another 8 were chosen for a search for high-velocity gas. Observations of the CO (J =1-0) line were made with the 13.3-m telescope at the Qinghai Station. The results show that 102 sources are associated with molecular gas. 9 of the sources have reference position problem and 21 have multiple spectrum. Of the remaining 72, 29 contain high-velocity gas, and of these 18 are new molecular outflow candidates. Their properties are discussed briefly in connection with massive young stellar objects.
