Take the car to Autozone, they will read the codes via OBD II for free. Other parts stores may have the same policy ... call first. My VW dealer charges $40 to pull the codes!! I bought a low-end OBD II reader for $50, as the wife and I both have VWs.
White smoke is usually antifreeze, the most frequent cause of this is head gasket blown or cracked head ... big bucks. Hopefully this is not you. Unless the car had a dramatic overheating incident, for most makes of cars, this should not happen until you have over 100K miles, probably closer to 200K.
White smoke could also be break fluid sucked in from power brake booster. If it's brake fluid, it will smell very bad.
On cold days, when the car first starts, white smoke can just be normal condensation in the tailpipe ... if it happens after the car is warmed up ... it's something else.
Check your coolant overflow tank level ... if it's very low or empty ... put water in (don't bother with antifreeze yet in case you are burning it up in the engine).
Good luck, ..ajm

Had same problem, in the boot right hand side, behind the removable panel there is :
1 - a hydraulic reservoir which must be at correct level.
2 - a black box (stc) this controls the roof system,
switch ignition off then pull the 2 connectors off for 30sec then reconnect.
This worked and hope this resolves your problem

LOL, take it down to pretty much any parts store, most can diagnose engine lights for free. Its possible the Evap isn't working right, or the EGR isn't working right. As the light says, check the engine. Just means there's a small problem, doesn't mean its broken. My sister has an 02 Pontiac, She drove for months with the check engine light on. I had her stop by an Advance Auto Parts that checked it for free, and it just showed the Evap purge solenoid wasn't working. I sprayed some carb cleaner on it worked it a bit by hand and it works fine now. Get it checked for sure if you live in a place that still does emissions checks for new tags.

unfortunately this means you need to get yourself to a trusted transmission repair facility very quick. the torque convertor on your vehicle is not operating the way it should. this is going to be an expensive repair, i tell you this so your not suprised. but do your homework and find someone with a great reputation for their work. dont take your saab to just anyone. these cars can get really screwed up without the right people workin on it. the transmission will need to come out.

If your engine warning light has come on this is indicating there in a serious problem and the limp mode has been switched on to safe guard the engine. It could be a number things, but I'll give you some basic things to look at which may help you.
