    Hi. I've had a warning come up on the display a few times telling me that the coolant level is low. Recently I have noticed a burning smell when I stop and get out of the car.

  14. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Saab 9-3 with the 2.2 diesel. It has suddenly devleoped a serious coolant leak from the vicinity of the bottom pulley, its dry above and i'm stumped. My thoughts where that the only coolant in this area is internally in the water jackets in the block - hence my theory of a cracked block...
