    oil leak

    I was looking at a saab that is for sale i have a 9-3 but would like to get something more classic the owner says that it is leaking oil in to cylinder 2 and getting all over the spark plug. I'm just having a hard time trying to figure out where it is coming from cause its clean from the valve down to the plugs. its a 2.1l
    he also said there was a grinding sound coming from the cams?

    What model and year???

    If oil is not getting past the valve stem seals it may be piston rings and/or a piston problem.
