9-3 2.0t engine

  1. Help with head gasket. Is it worth it?

    Hi all. I have a 2009 Saab 9-3 convertible with the 2.0 turbo. This past week I learned that the head gasket had likely blown as coolant was vanishing into the oil. I'm at a crossroads. I have 140,000 miles on it. Having been garaged, it's completely rust free. Never leaked. Never left me...

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    2 days ago, my 2003 9-3 2.0T started accelerating poorly (like I can't even speed up to get into traffic) after it's warm. For the first 10 minutes (until the temp needle reaches the middle) it's fine. I can accelerate / the turbo gauge climbs to almost red and have full power. After the car...
