Engine Mechanical problem
1999 Saab 9-5 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 100, 00 miles

Check engine light on. Dealership indicates failed "gas tank gasket.&Quot; Dealership indicates entire gas tank has to be replaced. Is it true that the entire gas tank has to be replacec and not just a gasket?

Unfortunately, the "plastic" connection is welded and if it cracks, you have to replace the entire gas tank. Poor engineering if it isn't designed to go 300,000 miles before failure.
