Blown Head Gasket Saab 9-3?! Start Up With LOTS of Smoke

Well a lot of you probably remember the 2000 Saab 9-3 Hatch back that we had at the dealership a couple of months ago. Well something happened to the engine to where it just billows an un natural amount of pure white smoke! They brought it back so we can get it fixed for them. In this video I try and assess what's going on and see if you all have any suggestions on what it could be before we send it to the shop. Dad also pulls it around and sees for him self. we're thinking it's a head gasket and maybe a motor mount or a tranny mount. Post below what you guys think it is and I'll let you all know when we find out. You will see what I mean and how bad this thing is haha, enjoy!

More Problems With the 2000 Saab 9-3 (Smoking, Test Drive, etc.)
Well many of you have seen all the other videos on this car and seen that we replaced the turbo in it a little while ago. After sitting for an extended period and battling to get it started with a dead battery, when I took it for a drive it started smoking, more and more. Today, 1 day later after I drove it, we started it up and no smoke was to be found. Weird, we'll have to check it out more to make sure everything is right with it. but like I said, today, everything was totally fine so idk if the oil/gas mixture got screwed up or something from sitting so long with little to no gas in it (had to fill it up before the drive) or what. We shall see I guess! Let me know what you guys think!

2009 Wildfire WF650-C Start Up, Engine, In Depth Tour, and Brief Drive
In this video I give a full in depth tour to a rather unique 3 wheel 4 passenger vehicle knows as the Wildfire WF650-C. Powered by a motorcycle 650cc engine and a motorcycle chassis. I take viewers through the interior and exterior, start it up and see how it sounds under acceleration. I also show a bunch of the various features of the vehicle. This one was pretty trashed overall but a nice example of what the wildfire is all about and giving a better overall appreciation for the vehicle.





blue devil head gasket sealant repairs a blown head gasket
A product called Blue Devil Head Gasket Sealant is added to the radiator and is said to repair head gasket leaks.This product saved me ~2k +.With their money back guarantee I had nothing to lose.Spent some time on Saturday and Sunday doing the work and was driving on Monday.Can't say it will fix all head gasket issues but i have nothing but accolades for this product.All error codes were cleared.This product does not contain solids as did products from the last century.Go to their website and follow the directions instead of what is on the bottle.What you need to do is remove as much glycol solution as you can,remove the thermostat,fill with water,add the "Blue Devil",cap the radiator and circulate for 50 minutes.This solution will flash when it hits the hot spot(bad gasket)leaving sodium silicate behind.In theory this is a permanent repair. We shall see. Update:3/20/10 After ~1100 miles it is still holding.Oil is clear with no coolant and there is no coolant loss. Update#2: 12/3/10 There is now 4k on the motor since adding BD.Just did the second oil change.Added about 1/2 pint of coolant .Ready for winter.Still going strong.No smoke or coolant loss issues. Update #3: 3/14/11,85,000 miles,7,000 miles since "the" repair. The past week resulted in coolant getting into the cylinders.There was no coolant in the oil and the expansion tank was not bubbling.The vehicle was not smoking like the last time,just a light vapor and coolant dripping from the weep hole on the muffler. Added a bottle of BD and yes it worked again.Anyone want to buy a truck ?





How to Test Head Gasket
** Please see my other videos on this topic* Thx! This video is intended for those who would like to know how to confirm a damaged head gasket on a vehicle prior to making the decision to invest a lot of money for repair. My apologies for the camera focus- next video I will pay closer attention, but the information needed is viewable. Further research should be done on the risks of overheating to the engine block and such. This video is meant to simply show a 'how to' on the test method I used quite often when professionally working on vehicles, the results of which are based on chemistry and industry-standards of the time (1990's). I hope you find this video useful. RI.

97 7.3 PowerStroke cold start.... then the unexpected happens, blown... caught on camera
*[= READ THE WHOLE DESCRIPTION BEFORE COMMENTING =]* Immature comments are removed, so do act like you have some sense if atleast not a bit of respect. After letting my 97 F350 7.3 PowerStroke Diesel sit for a week I go out to start it up after it being 15 degrees the night before. Block heater wasn't plugged in. First the starter solenoid stuck and kept on cranking and cranking the engine without giving me any consideration, it wasn't until I pop the hood that it decided to listen to reason, and I mean just as I was about to open it it shut off HA HA HA! After doing some looking I found some oil dripping from under the engine and my first thought was I blew a HPOP seal or HP oil line, but nope, after some looking I found the oil coming from the oil cooler, and I also was smelling some antifreeze. I guess the weather change caused the seals to finally give up. I have done a complete tear down of this engine, check it out at https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL_QW6HTJbuLbUvGjWPFRcRB5bwUngX0nX In April 2013 I just put a new starter solenoid on it, and I will be taking it back to Advanced Auto Parts to get a new one as it is CLEARLY defective, it's done this several other times but never for more than 1-3 seconds and it usually only did it when I would shut the truck off. Crazy. This same week I was blessed enough to have found a 96 F350 7.3 from the original owner that is was in much better shape just in need of a e-fuel system.

Replacing valve stem seals in 305 H.O. small block chevy from 1986 Monte Carlo SS
I'm putting the original 305HO back in the Monte after taking the ZZ3 out for my Iroc project. This is mainly to make the car mobile but it may end up tagged with this engine for a while. Previous owner reported that this 305 has over 100k miles on it and has been out of the car since 1997. He said it smoked during startup and sure enough the valve stem seals were worn out. Hopefully this will fix the issue.
