Subject: is there an online source for service info???

does anyone know of an online source of "manual-type" info. i know of some bmw sites that basically have the service manuals online (with all the pics, etc.) and i'm curious if there's something similar for saabs out there. i was curious because i've got a very small oil leak in the rear of the motor and i'm trying to narrow down all the possible sources. this summer i want to attack as many possible future headaches as i can. the car's an '89Turbo with ~150,000. thanks for the info... ps i had my oil changed at the dealer (they were doing some other stuff and it's cold in buffalo) and they put a little too much oil in. the level was about 1/2 quart over the "max". i then drove from buffalo to dc and when i got to dc the car was "dumping" oil out. i thought a seal or something decided to go (maybe the oil pump) so i brought it somewhere the next day (after an angry night of punching the walls). however, by then it wasn't leaking. it was back to it's "drop here and there" state. has this happened to anyone and is there a specific "valve" type thing that deals with excess oil pressure? if not, where does the oil come out of? i'm now just at the max line (maybe a hair above) and it may drip minimally if it's good and hot, but i can live with that. i also noticed that the inner pulley straight down from the airconditioner compressor is a bit wobbly when the car's running. i'm assuming that that's a bad thing. anyways, thanks for any info.. jim leone '89 900T
