9-3 head issues
Posted by Paul Willis [Email] (more from Paul Willis) on Fri, 19 Apr 2019 20:22:23
I have been seeing that maybe 07-10 9-3s can have head problems like sloppy tensioners and failing valve seats or the like. Is that really a thing? I have had classic 900s so am not used to the 4-cylinder in the 9-3s which I believe was a Saab-massaged GM mill. I have read enough to be scared away from the V-6s in the Aeros but if anyone has any thoughts on the 9-3 4cy heads that would be good to hear. Thanks
