Ok.. So I'm not a mechanic by any means and can hardly check the oil lol.. But my Saab broke down 2 weeks ago and the guy that usually fixes my cars said the engine is shot and that's it. Me being a stubborn women, said F*** Y** and started to work on it myself! So here is some back history I have had an oil leak due to the holes in my oil pan for a year now but I keep putting oil in every other day about 2 mo ago it started missing and it didn't matter if i was going 5 mph or 50 it would just:roll: do it whenever. Two weeks ago however I was on the highway and I though my car blew up smoke everywhere so I pulled over and got it towed. I wouldn't say its white smoke more of a gray or puffs of dark then turning white maybe but it fills the road to where you can not see. So I did some digging and watched a lot of youtube and I changed my spark plugs and one of my coils the car starts great runs fine in the driveway oh might I add on the highway I lost power like the pedle didn't work lol.. After I did the plugs I drove it around the block and all seemed good had power nice pickup Bla bla.. yesterday I was taking it to the parts store and about 5 miles into my trip poof smoke again and when I would stop I had poor excelaration it seems the smoke is worse when I go to excelarate idk I also did a pressure test and all were fine.. PLEASE HELP could it be turbo or is it a head?
