My usual SAAB certified mechanic said that is what he thought but don't know for sure justtaking his word. The engine blew a hose towards the back right hand side of the engine (when looking at it with the hood up) I had oil in the coolant just prior to the hose failure but there was no water in the crankcase or transmission. I asked the Tech. that and he said it had to do with pressure and that the oil can seep through but not the other way around. The engine runs but car is in the limp mode.
