  1. NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    Hi Saab Central I´m new to this site but figured it´s just the right place to get some much needed guidance for my 2002 Saab 9-3 2.0T aut. What happened: About a month ago I was driving home and the turbo decided to fail. It sent all the engine oil to the cylinders and as you can imagine the...
