Leading up to the end when I was stoping I was checking the oil and saw what looked like a misty vapor. The large hose from the pvc valve was cracked. Right before the car when into limp mode when I checked there was some oil spattered around the hose. Then it when into limp mode and I called AAA. The shop that the car was towed to told me the car needed a new throttle body. I asked for the codes and checked this site and called my Saab mechanic and found out about limp mode as well as how to get out of it. I got back to the shop and reset the throttle body. The car started and I could give it gas and it responded. There was a white smoke coming from the tailpipe. I saw a put of this earlier on startup. The shop was going to drop the pan and flush the oil but felt it was too difficult. Instead they took off the valve cover, cleaned what they could and flushed the system twice. Last call from them said that they thought the engine was shot because of the smoke. Could it be a problem with the crank case ventilation system that is causing the smoke?
