A short clip of our SAAB 9-5 2.0T which has developed a rather annoying high pitched whine until warm.
This problem (from what I've been reading) stems from oil sludge building up in the sump which will eventually starve the engine of oil. Heres to hoping its not quite that serious.
The car is a 1999 and has 156k miles on the clock.

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!

Saab 9-3 sump drop/turbo failure
After buying a Saab 9-3 with turbo
problems I decided to investigate. The turbo had completely failed. Will post video on
that later. As you can see sump completely slugged with bits of breather
pipe. Anyone with a 9-3 or 9-5 always drop your sump to check. This car
hasn't done a lot of miles and full Saab history.
Saab 9-5 climate control repairs
My repair of the dual zone climate control system, where one side was stuck
on heater only. I used the on-board diagnostics to identify problems. Both
sides required work for a complete repair.

My repair of a Saab SID display, which had lost pixels on the LCD screen.
Ultimately, I discovered the ribbon cable had deteriorated beyond repair,
and I purchased a replacement ribbon cable. A $400 unit was fixed for a
little more than $40.
