COOLANT LEAKING

2004 saab 9-5 is leaking coolant (orange) from the rear of the engine compartment, only has 28000 miles on it. Could it be a gasket, there's also white smoke coming out from the engine compartment. I've heard that the orange coolant detiriates the gasket quiker.

Most likely it's a cracked head gasket. I had the same problem with my 2001 Saab 9-3. Check the oil for any yellow gunk stuck to the dipstick. This would indicate a cracked head gasket.
