1999 SAAB 9-5 Whining noise (The dreaded sludge?)

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.

Fixing Saab 9-5 Security System Problems -EricTheCarGuy
Visit me at: http://www.ericthecarguy.com/ As I said in the video the owner brought me this car along with the supposed fix. The symptoms were an intermittent no start and a message on the dash indicating a security system problem. Apparently this is a common problem with Saabs of this vintage and the problem is usually linked to this siren/security module. Apparently the batteries go bad in the unit causing it to act up intermittently. In this video I show the steps needed to replace the module, it's actually a very easy job that does not require a lot of tools. So if you have an issue with the security system on a Saab of this vintage you might want to give this fix a try. Here's the ebay store link to the company that rebuilds the modules. http://www.ebay.com/itm/2001-Saab-9-5-Anti-Theft-Alarm-Siren-Repair-Service -01-95-9-5-/230743686144?pt=Automotive_Services&vxp=mtr&hash=item35b9653c00 Discussion about this video: https://www.ericthecarguy.com/kunena/18-The-EricTheCarGuy-Video-Forum/44233 -2001-saab-security-system-repair#54463 Stay Dirty ETCG Due to factors beyond the control of EricTheCarGuy, it cannot guarantee against unauthorized modifications of this information, or improper use of this information.  EricTheCarGuy assumes no liability for property damage or injury incurred as a result of any of the information contained in this video. EricTheCarGuy recommends safe practices when working with power tools, automotive lifts, lifting tools, jack stands, electrical equipment, blunt instruments, chemicals, lubricants, or any other tools or equipment seen or implied in this video.  Due to factors beyond the control of EricTheCarGuy, no information contained in this video shall create any express or implied warranty or guarantee of any particular result.  Any injury, damage or loss that may result from improper use of these tools, equipment, or the information contained in this video is the sole responsibility of the user and not EricTheCarGuy.
