Saab has sent several service tips to dealers about crankcase ventilation problems. If a clogged crankcase ventilation system is not fixed the oil will be contaiminated leading to a broken turbo and/or broken timing chain. High oil consumtion and oil leaks are also probable results of a clogged crankcase ventilation system. > Dealer says this is normal for turbos. False. > Am I being snowed. I have no idea.
