Maybe leaking from the chain tensioner?
yeah - often those seals on them leak. Cheap and quick fix if this is the case. Does the car have the most current PCV system installed?Maybe leaking from the chain tensioner?
They all leak there from that plug. Do you have PVC # 6? If not you may just have some excess pressure int eh crankcase.Hi!
I also realized not acceptable oil consumption in my 9-5 2.0T 1998: aprox. 700 ml per 1000 km.
1. PCV valve works properly; related hoses are not blocked (guide from here: FixMySaab)
2. No blue exhaust gas, no burning smell
3. Engine accelerates well
4. I found an oil leak under the valve cover (see the pic's) - all I need to change the valve cover gaskets - or anyting else? Is it a big work or just DIY?
Thx in advance for the comments!
I fixed it by 'red' high temperature silicone - the PCV and the connected hoses work properly - thx for the idea!They all leak there from that plug. Do you have PVC # 6? If not you may just have some excess pressure int eh crankcase.
