Saab defines normal operating temp as being reached after the cooling fans cycle twice (without the AC on). Reach this and then give it say 20 minutes of freeway time. This will get the oil good and hot and dry out most condensed moisture from the crankcase and the exhaust. > How much good would it do to take it on the road for 30 minutes on the weekend? Not much, but better than sitting in the garage making it wait on the torture Monday brings! Don't you ever visit friends or relatives in another city? Get out, explore, find your own road. ;-) > Thanks you guys. And so will your car! Have a good long drive. Feel the power man, feel the power!
