Question Asked: 

We have a 1995 Saab 9000CS with 193,000 miles on it. We were driving it today and noticed that the bottom of the drivers side windshield began fogging up. Then we could smell something burning that I thought might be oil. Smoke started comming out of the a/c vents and I did not have the a/c on as it was mild today, about 60 degrees. So I pulled over as quickly as possible and opened the hood. There was not smoke or steam in the engine compartment but the pipe with the valve flap at the end of it that extends out of the firewall had liquid pouring out of it. I thought it might be oil but discovered later that it was coolant. A large amount of liquid came out onto the pavement. It dripped right on top of what looked like the catalytic convertor or muffler. Our local mechanic did a head gasket replacement last week. Could this be related to that gasket replacement? The wrecker driver thought it might be the heater core. Why did it pour out of the pipe? Thank you, Doyle
