Hi thanks for reply
Both these are fine it seems to be coming from deep down front of engine on drivers side,just as thought anyone had this happen if a regen has been done or needs to be done?

Hi Mate


Put some cardboard under the car to see if it catches any drips, need to identify if Oil / Water, possible problems could be Water pump / Timing cover oil leak.

Keep an eye on all your fluid levels. Its probably gradually going to get worse and that should hopefully help you find the problem. It takes a short while for the coolant to get upto temperature and the system to pressurise, its likely that once pressurised that could be when its leaking, best try and have a look at this time with a torch to see where it is leaking from.

Mine started like that turned out to be the main radiator collapsing common fault, if it is be prepared for a big bill could only get a rad from Vauxhall at the time as non in the country cost me £550.

Hi there, mine has suffered a similar problem today. Did you ever get to the bottom of what the cause was?
