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!

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.
