  2. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)

  3. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hi, this has been going on for a while now. There's no warning or pattern other than I'll notice a fume smell in the car followed by a lumpiness at idle and a fair amount of blue smoke when accelerating. Sometimes it stops by itself and always just stopping the engine and restarting will cure it...

    Hi, I have had a 2004 9-3 Aero for a number of years. Never had any kind of problem. This morning I started the car and clouds of blue smoke started coming from the exhaust, not just a puff literally clouds. I turned the car off immediately. What could this be ? The car is on 115,000 miles and...

    Hi guys, I am close to buying a 93 wagon and although the facelift 07 onwards cars are great looking, I have found a couple of very nice low mileage 56 plate cars and I like the older shape too. After having aftermarket audio in the last few cars with blue tooth phone and audio streaming from...

    ...on gearchanges on the open road. Nearly blinded a Land Rover driver as I pulled away from the tollbooths at the Tamar Bridge on my way in to work this morning (he probably deserved it, but still...) This seems much more significant than the occasional puffs of smoke on startup I posted...

    Hi all, Our 2002 9-3 2.0T Vert generates a blue haze on start up, but goes when warm. It uses a bit of oil and water. There's no emulsion under the oil filler cap though. I am thinking Head Gasket. What do you think? Many thanks. Jonathan
