My 2001 9-3 (75 000km) suffers from the same thing but not as often as once a week. I notice the "blue puff" maybe once or twice a month. I have the 2.0t Ecopower engine in my 9-3 and I found the below link that may explain the "Puff" http://www.abbottracing.com/2003/support/faq.htm Is this a problem with only the garret GT17 Turbocharger or are all turbos prone to the same problem? If there is a build up of sludge in the turbo forcing oil through the turbine seal, why does this puff not happen at every startup? keith
