hey, hope you guys can help,

a few days ago my temp gauge went up to the red, i pulled into a garage and put water in the tank. when i took the collint cap off steam obviously came out the top, i stopped about half way then water came rushing into the tank then when i took it all the way off, the water disapeared.

i checked it today in the drive way and noticed there is a leak coming from under the engine dripping off the sump but i cant see above the sump or even know what is behind it.

any ideas whare the leak could come from around that area?


cheers

Well you have a coolent leak, Its gonna cause weird overheating issues.

You need to watch the motor to see if you can tell where its comming from (probally thermostat housing or water pump) and fit it.

its the thermostat housing. You need a new one, they are prone to leak. Easy fix 3 bolts to remove it transfer the thermostat and re-install it. Good luck
