questions on some services??

Well i finally went to the dealer to get the DI recall checked and sure enough that was the problem. Now that its fixed, here is the other issues that they found. I am looking to see if any one can give me some insight on how long this should take to complete by myself? CRANK CASE VENT. KIT, OIL PRESSURE SWITCH, SERPENTINE BELT, and then they suggested to clean out my injector system were they have to hook up a pump to clean out all the crap. Is this something the DIY person can do or is that dealer only service.

any info would be appreciated thanks.

PCV #6 takes an hour or two from what others have said. No idea on oil proessure switch. Serpentine belt shouldn't take long, but you have to remove PS wheel and wheel well arch to get to it. Replace idler pulley and possibly tensioner and/or pulley at same time. Just use a bottle of techron once or twice a year to clean out fuel system.

I used this DIY for the Serp Belt.

This is the best PCV DIY that I've seen.

pcv update is really easy, and you can do it from above. http://fixmysaab.com/9-5_repair/PCV/intro.asp?nsteps=2
As for the fuel system I always have and will always use Lucas Oil products.
I've never done the serp. belt, too much of a pain in the ass, just pay someone to do that.
