Start the iterations with courant number 1 or less with 1st order discretization scheme. Run it for 20 or 30 iterations and later you can increase the courant number slowly. Once you see the solution is stabilized, change the discretization scheme for "flow" to 2nd order and run it further.

Does your problem requires coupled solver (high speed aerodynamics or similar...)? If not, try to switch to the segregated solver, which usually is more stable.
