Question about 2008 Saab 9-5
My 2000 Saab 9-5 was is smoking grey heavily out of the exhaust pipe and the oil area in the engine. I think there was a small oil leak that perhaps got out of control. It started smoking while driving on the interstate. We put oil in it right away but it did not seem to totally help. Also, when it first started smoking we shut off the air conditioning and that made it stop for awhile. Yes, oil depletion is very bad. I am assuming that is what happened. However, I was able to get the car to our house. It was also not accelerating normally. What do you think the problem is and how much would it cost to get fixed?

this sounds like antifreeze entering the crankcase..blown head gasket .warped head . cracked the block . pray it's only a blown head gasket and get it checked for cracks and straightness with a new head gasket might be all that's needed. the high pitched whining noise was probly your waterpump spinning dry . might need a new water pump to (where is your coolant lvl and what is the strength of it for the cold weather)
and a few exaust doughnuts wearing thin letting smoke out in the engine compartment not healthy to breath you should get it looked at.

You might want to try replacing the Crankshaft Position Sensor. Saab 93's and 95's are notorious for these faulty sensors. they don't cost much, mine cost around $55 with tax and it took me around 1 hour to replace. Go to this website: www.fixmysaab.com then search for 95_repair. They show you how to replace the sensor. They even include pictures and the tools you will need(only a long ratchet with a swivel attachment). Try this before taking it to a dealership as they will mostly likely charge you app $400 plus for less than an hours work! I hope this helps 8)
Peace and happy driving 8)
