My Saab 9000 has developed an interesting oiling problem.

I started to smell burning so I stopped to check under the hood and saw smoke coming from the area behind/below the throttle body.

The valve-cover gasket could be leaking, but... THAT much? Anything else it could be?

I haven't' been driving it recently but I need to start working on this problem.

Also the turbo has been sounding funny.. the pitch of it's wine is getting higher. I don't know what this means.

Exactly where my valve cover gasket is leaking. It's not leaking much, but enough to annoy me lol.

Also, can you better describe the sound your turbo is making? And when does it happen? All the time? When it's cold? When my car is cold and the turbo starts to spool up its starts to screech. Pretty sure the bearings and seals are going bad on mine consider I've got oil in my intake as well. But
