That is what is called combustion "Blow By" and it means you have a badly worn engine.

I had white smoke from the tail pipeand getting hot ... I had the heads done , gasket valve . and resurfising. when I got the saab back ,I drove it about 49 miles started driving slugish , bufs of black...


Sounds to me like they did a bad head job. No pun intended. lol, White smoke indicates moisture in exhaust but black smoke indicates a oil leak. I would take it back and have them check the job they did. If the car is over heating then the head gaskets are pretty much blown.

My 1996 saab 9000 cs has started smoking badly upon warm up. After the car is warmed up it does not smoke at all. The smoke seems to be oil and I am losing some oil. It started doing this all of a sudden.


the valve seals in the motor are worn and letting oil seep into the cylinders when the vehicle sets overnight. when you start it in the morning it burns off the collected oil.. have oil seals replaced if you are parcial to your car....

2002 Saab 9-5, 2.3t smokes when leaving the accelerator


The valve stem oil seals require replacement.
This repair can usually be performed without removing the head from the engine, so it should not cost too much.

Im thinking of buying a saab 2004 2.0t aero ?? anything i should know or check ?


Look at the oil and condition and check the internal crank case pressure. You can check that by removing the engine oil cap and put your hands over the fill hole and see if there are lots of pressure coming out, if there is just walk away. (The internal parts a worn like valve guild ect). idle the car and go for a test drive when the engine is warmed up. Look for any signs of blue smoke from the tail pipe when boost is applied at 1/2 to 3/4 throttle and see if there is any engine performance problem and then try it again at WOT without getting a ticket and be safe friend. after your test drive and the transmission feels good, check the transmission fluid for condition and level. Good luck and i am sure you'll know if there is something wrong with the brakes too on your own.

Saab 9-5 blowing white smoke from exhaust


One way to check for a blown head gasket, is to simply smell the coolant reservoir. Pop the cap, and see if it smells like raw gas. Every headgasket, I've diagnosed has had this smell, even if the oil is not contaminated. Another way is to hook up a coolant pressure tester, and run the vehicle for 15-20 mins or so. If the head gasket is blown, the pressure will exceed 15 psi. sometimes as high as 25 psi. If there is oil in the coolant overflow tank, the head is cracked, about 90% of the time.
I'm working on a 03 Saab 95 2.3l t. This vehicle smokes on initial start up, then the smoke disapates, and the vehicle is fine. Another mechanic diagnosed it as bad valve seals. I disconnected the pcv system, and the vehicle no longer smokes. If the valve seals have gone bad, the vehicle will smoke on acceleration. Also if the turbo seals are leaking it will smoke more heavily on acceleration.

I have a 1999 saab 9-5 model and i have 195.000 miles on it i went with the 0 weight 30 mobil one synthetic motor oil on my oil change ran it 3,000 miles and just as i was about to change the oil again it...


Sounds like it's time for a compression check. The head or gasket could be blown, and this test will confirm or deny this fact. Your smoke/steam and the oily residue are pretty good clues...accordianman
