Question about 1996 Saab 900
The car is having problems with overheating and simultaneously problems with oil light coming on and the car does not stay running after it starts it will eventualy shut off, also while it runs it runs a bit rich... i have read they have issues with gunk building up and blocking passage ways im wondering if this could be blocking oil pressure thus heating the turbo and motor up maybe making it overheat and the computer thinks it leaning out and dumping more fuel??? could the head be warped from over heating and allow the car to start but not continue running? please let me know what you think or if u know of those symptoms because im stumped
Have you oil in the water? (radiater) if so you head gasket has gone and will nd replacing (big bucks) having a mix of water and oil gives you the sludge build up continuous over heating will certainly warp your head check your oil dipstick for a milky sludge instead of just oil
