    9000 Workshop
    Hi all, I recently finished an operation on a 1994 Saab 9000 Aero that included pulling the engine and trans, replacing both the head gasket among other things. After a month or two of daily driving, I've noticed a few strange things. Maybe they're all related, probably not. I'm curious what...

    My 2001 Saab 9-5 V6 seems to have an issue where it burns a lot of oil at one time. If I am rough on it off the line or go around a corner too sharp I blow smoke everywhere.
