Engine Mechanical problem
1997 Saab 9000 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 200K miles

I own a 1997/98 SAAB Aero 9000 turbo charge. Notice in the past two weeks, during idle speed blue smoke emits from tail pipe, it's spuratic. Notice that when using my turbo, a loud "whinning" sound can be heard, but only when turbo kicks in. Car runs excellent, but smoking appears to be getting worse. Mileage is approximately 2007 K. Can you advise?

Do you
have the same problem?
