    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

Prior to dismantling, the head gasket was blown (not from overheating) and the...
