I HAVE JUST PURCHASED A 99 9-5 2.3L TURBO W 102,000 MILES. THE ENGINE IS BLOWING BLUE SMOKE SOUNDS LIKE A DIESEL AND HAS LITTLE TO NO OIL PSI. I HAVE NOT TORN IT DOWN YET BUT I BELIEVE THAT IT IS GARBAGE. I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW WHAT THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE 99-00 AND THE 01 AND UP'S ARE AND IF IT IS SOMETHING THAT CAN BE OVERCOME TO MAKE IT WORK. ALSO, IF I CAN GET MY HANDS ON AN AERO MODEL 2.3 ARE THERE AND PHYSICAL DIFFERENCES OR IS IT JUST ELECTRONICS. IS THERE ANYTHING ELSE I SHOULD KNOW BEFORE I PULL MINE OUT OF THE CHASSIS. THANKS TOM. :nono;
