    Post Oil Leak from Head Gasket and timing cover.

    On my quest to rectify every oil leak on my 05 9-5 my last one is where the head meets the timing cover just below the chain tensioner. My car has a new head gasket so I think a careless error was made in the installation, Perhaps the head bolts need to be torqued? Anyway, I'm at a loss. If the head needs the come of what should be done differently to make sure it doesn't leak? (The pic was taken after I cleaned up the oil). Someone else on Saab central started an old thread with my exact problem but he never posted a solution, https://www.saabcentral.com/forums/s...d.php?t=229735

    There are two o-rings that can be changed in that tensioner. They can leak all over the place and cause grief.
