Case closed! If you say so... But what makes you think the end of the engine connected to the transmission should be the "back" if it's actually on the left (or right when facing it)?? So you say the front of the motor (it's actually an *engine* BTW, not a MOTOR. But don't let that bother you...) is on the right side of the car, which is on the left if you face the front of the engine compartment? I guess it would be a lot simpler if the damn SAAB engineers would just orient their engines properly like a good ole' amurican car, right? But I have to say, I've never heard of anyone referring to the orientation that way before in my life. Either way, the reference to the waterpump gave me a clue as to where the leak was, and I already answered according to that. Cheers, -Fred W
