Question about 2001 Saab 9-3
This is an known issue with this engine. The Oil pickup screen is clogged from using non full synthetic oil and / or not being perfect with oil changes. a sludge builds up and clogs the oil pump screen starving the engine from oil. If you continued driving it after the oil light came on you likely need a new engine. Otherwise you need to have the oil pan dropped and the screen cleaned and the engine checked out for damage.
