Customer Question

Jeff, I've got a 2002 Saab 9-5, 2.3T with an extreme oil leak from the passenger side. Leak does not stop with the new PCV update, and will leak a quart in ten miles. I've inspected it, there might've been some head gasket-Timing chain cover leakage before the PCV update, but I'm not thinking that would be it, due to the extreme flow of this leak, I replaced the crankshaft oil seal to no effect. Oil pump possibly leaking? There's so much oil sprayed around by the serpentine belt I can't isolate it. The leak is minimal while idling, but increases drastically under load when driven.
