Hi all, I have a Saab 9-3 with almost 200,000 on its clock.
I recently replaced the throttle body on it because the shudder valve was not closing on it properly and also oil was leaking from the bottom of the throttle body seeping out from the box where the electronics and circuit board of the throttle body are.
52929


I replaced the throttle body and now the shudder valve works properly and there in no longer and judder/thud when the engine is switched off, but oil is again leaking from the same place again.

here was the inside of the old throttle body from my car inside the electronics box of the bottom of the throttle body.



here is inside the throttle body itself, a bit of oil which I am not sure is normal or not for a car with just under 200,000 miles on the clock (199,586 miles )



the car drives great over all and have plenty of power. I would appreciate any input. thanks
