Subject: Head Gasket


Hi, Took my 2001 Saab 9-3se in for a scheduled 70 000km service yesterday. I was shocked when they told me that the head gasket is leaking and would probably need to be changed amounting to a cost over 1000 euros. They suggested first to try tightening the head bolts and if it still leaked after this then change the gasket. Is it worth to try tightening the bolts? does it normally help or is it just borrowed time? what is the cause of a leaky head gasket? I always thought it was an old car disease! thanks, keith
