    Default Coolant leak on 53 plate 1.8LS

    Ive got a coolant leak on my vec.
    It looks like its comin from the radiator somewhere above the drainage tap. I can see a couple of runs down the side of radiator, and a small puddle under that area on the floor.

    I just wanted to ask if anyone knows of any common things to look at round that area.

    Any help would be great.

    Thanks
    Carl

    If it's any consolation. I've got a leak in the same area. Sometimes leaves a little pool on the drive, sometimes it doesn't.

    Getting it sorted soon when I have my timing belt done.
