Subject: Re: OIL leak


The oil filter may not be on properly or the gasket on the filter is not sealing properly. I have an 87 9000S and do my own oil and filter changes. If something goes wrong, I have no one to blame but myself. It may be worth it to just try another filter. Make sure the contact area is clean for the gasket and you put a little oil on the gasket. The filter should not be more than hand tightened. Ken Washington 87 9000S 87 900S 83 900T Cochroach wrote: > Please help. > > Just got my Saab 9000 CS 2.3t 1992 back from having its MOT.
