Re: SAAB 9-3/ENGINE OIL LEAK/SMOKE COMING FROM UNDER HOOD - Saabnet.com Bulletin Board
john i just dropped my 2001 9-3 se off at the dealership with an oil leak. they said that they have been seeing this problem with the engine gasket and that by adding a hose it usually fixes the problem 90% of the time. my leak was so bad it work into the axel boot and the exhaust and i could smell it in the car when i turned on the heat and AC. i am not very happy with my saab because this is the third time something has gone wrong that i believe is the manufactures fault...my throttle body went bad and i hope you know tha there is a recall on the ignition coils...at least they are fixing this for free...its a good idea to take it in because if this goes you will just stall and the car will not run...good luck and if you find anything else let me know and i will do the same
