Question about 1999 Saab 9-5
I would replace to turbo. To make sure it is the turbo and not the head gasket, remove the air intake to the turbo (not a hard job) and then (with engine off) grab that turbo shaft. Try and pull and push it and move it up and down. If there is ANY play, it's the turbo. If you got 161k out of one turbo, that is VERY GOOD. Normal is 120k or less. There is a guy on ebay that sells rebuilt for about $300. If you do the work yourself (Experienced Tuner) you can save $1k. Else you will have to have a shop do it, usually about $1,200 or so for everything. If you are in the WI area, we could work something out.
