So, noticed coolant down about an inch below min after a thrash the other day. Did not see any drips though so replaced expansion bottle cap as there was some residue on it. Topped up. No heat issues that day or before.
Under some pressure to clean car after seeing the superb 160 on the Chatsworth thread I just removed the front grille for paint and noticed a slight pool of cooolant in that area, clearly a rad or hose leak.
Heres the question...do I dare to make my way to Chatsworth tomorrow as planned? Last thing I want is to encourage HGF but with about 300 miles (I am joining at Hassop, not the drive) I guess thats a decision probably just taken for me by the car?
Conscious that all advice is good advice but that it is me who has to fix the car, is it worth the risk?
