re: Oil Pressure light

I had a problem with my oil pressure light and posted back a bit. It turned out to be a sticky oil relief valve. It was 'scored' a bit and apparently was sticking. Way to go you guys for coming up with the correct theory beforehand. So if this happens to anyone else hope this experience can help someone.

When the light was on the car sounded like a diesel with the valves chattering. After a while the light would go off, like 1 mile or 20 miles, depending. Once the light went off the car would be OK until the I turned it off. Then IT would return . The bearings must have been getting enough oil pressure to not squeal

So thanks to all you SAAB heads out there. 187,000 miles and still 'truckin'.
