Hi

I suspect I have a coolant leak, though I'm having difficulty tracking it down.

Last week (a hot day) I returned to the car (parked in cool undercover carpark) and found a puddle underneath. It was definitely water/coolant, as the AC does not work and it wasnt any other fluid. The water was dripping off the top and sides of the oil sump. I think it was dripping onto there from somewhere above it.

Since then, it has been loosing water at a slow rate, but I can't track down the source - I haven't since seen a puddle or any dripping water.

Anyone have any idea where the leak might be?
