    Just posted on your 'Smell from Engine' thread.

    It looks like you may have found the source of your smell problem??

    If you are getting steam from here then yes it could be rather serious, is your car a diesel?? I'm assuming that it is:

    Diesels run colder than pertrol versions and it is so easy to cook the head on one and require a new head gasket and all that goes with it (skimming/new head/Massive Expense!!). So go get it checked properly ASAP.

    I would urge you to get it checked asap and not use the car unless it is essential and for no more than about 5miles at a time if you do. Have you not seen any probs in the engine temp or electric fan kicking more often than usual etc???

    It really does sound like your pump has failed.

    Let us know of any diagnosis or outcome.
