Oil leak at timing cover, how serious? - Saabnet.com Bulletin Board
2001 9-5 4cyl. 32,000 miles. It has been diagnosed with an oil leak at timing cover due to the PCV problem. Also has the blue smoke at start up. I have read threads on the PCV mods and can't seem to get a bead on whether to get the PCV mod fix or not. Mechanic says to try the PCV mod before he would fix the timing cover. Does this seem right to you?
If my extended warranty covers turbo replacement should I go ahead and get this fixed now or wait?
