Looked at a '92 Saab 9000 non turbo 5 sp today. The owner, a mechanic wants $1,800 for it. Got 213k miles and drove really nicely. Selling it privately, in as is condition. I have a concern. The oil looked weird... grey; and the owner - a mechanic who sells used cars - said he uses Mr. Molly an additive to improve mileage by about 1 mi/gallon. There also appears to be a leak over the engine which he said was the valve cover gasket but I'm wondering if it's the head gasket. He's going to replace the valve cover gasket and clean the engine but wonder if there is an engine problem he's using this additive to hide. Marty
