I have a 2000 9-5 2.3T that went to the dealer for a coolant leak. Discovered a blown head gasket. Dealer repaired head gasket and replaced valves. Since then the car has been idling rough, particularily when cold. Engine warning light comes on repeatedly. Dealer detects miss-firing. Dealer removes, inspects and replaces engine head and problem gets worse. After a couple weeks of diagnosis I get the car back with the problem unresolved. Anyone else ever run in to similar problems? Any suggestions? As well, they have now told me my turbo charger is failing. Car has 170,000 Km on it. How long do turbos generally take before they fail? Is it worth having it rebuilt or should I replace it? Thanks.
