    Hello, My 1991 9000 2.3L turbo is spewing white smoke from exhaust, oil filler, and after busting the PVC hose, smoke is coming from the breather, top right (when facing number plate, knees on) of the rocker cover. The smoke used the smell sweet as I had radiator coolant in it but now I am in...

  8. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    I have noticed that I sometimes get a sort of stale smell coming through the face vents on the fascia of my 9-5. If it does happen, it seems to do it shortly after I have started driving, before I turn the climate control on. I don't get any smells once the climate/aircon is on. THe A/C is...
