White smoke 2011 Saab 9-5

Asked by Mar 27, 2017 at 07:39 PM about the 2011 Saab 9-5 Turbo4

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I was driving yesterday on highway ND
towards end of 90 mile trip, car was
making a high pitched whistle noise
which got louder upon acceleration.  Car
sat for 4 hours. On my return trip noise
worsened and then major smoke and car
would barely go.  Best guess is head
gasket. Any guess on cost of repair. Car is
in otherwise great shape, only 78k miles.
Saab 9-5 V4 Turbo.

There are a LOT of variables, most domestics would run you around 1500-2500 if getting work done at a shop, being a Saab it will likely be higher. I would get it diagnosed to make sure that is the problem though.

If your car has a turbo-charger it is possible that the turbo has gone out.
