1997 Saab 9000 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Manual 115000 miles
just bought my saab 9000 anniversary, but 2 days later it blew a water hose. Saab dealer says that the head gasket has gone. They are also telling me that the head is probably warped due to the fact that the car overheated. The overheating was short as either I pulled over and put more water in it, or the temp dropped back down to normal very quickly. Does this model of saab suffer from the oil breather pipe problems of the 9-5 - is this just a simple blown gasket, or is it more likely that it's the block has warped?
