Hello 9-5 owners!

My girlfriend is planning on buying used 9-5 2.3T with 110,000 miles on it. I understand I am going to have to drop the sump and check for oil sludge first. I have not been able to find much information on the PCV, but i guess you can replace it, any information pointing me in that direction would be greatly appreciated. Lastly is there anything else I should be looking for??? or any other major issues I should know about?

The thermostat on these cars tend to fail. Cheap part, pain in the butt.

Also, the PCV update you want on your 9-5 is #6 if you are car is MY 2000,2001,2002,2002 MY.

Do this first though: Spend 150 bucks and have a saab mechanic check it out and road test it. It could make your life so much easier down the road...
