2001 Saab 9-3 repair Question 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 71000 miles

I noticed oil on the garage floor. Took the car in to be checked and they are indicating that the leak is from the engine and that I need an engine overhaul - new head gasket and the like.

Can you give me an estimate of the cost?


Do you
have the same problem?

Ok, check this saab online site for prices on your parts need, [ the saabsite. Com] input your correct vehicle year & type then u will need a cyl head gasket & 10 head bolts , plus turbo flange gasket, valve cover gasket & coolant u can buy anywhere, after that cost for R&R head can be around $300-600 dollars pending, time for job will take around 2 hours with a cold engine. But note book labour is about 6-8 hours dont quote me on that, good luck also u may want to replace your oil pressure switch while u r there, oil leak from the head is common if the vehicle never had a gasket replacement before.
