Hi all, im new to the site and this is my first post so please bear with me.

I have been having issues with coolant loss as of late (suspected blown head gasket) which i have put chemi weld through the radiator to give me a bit more time (saving for a new engine mine has 380 tho on the clock and is very tired).
The chemi weld stopped the fluid loss so i thought i would flush the rad and put new coolant in it. I checked the fluid today and it has gone down again but low and behold i looked at the power streeing fluid resoviour and there appears to be green coolant in it, I sure as hell didnt put it there, just wondering if anyone out there has seen this before????? as i didnt realise it was even possible.

Any help would be greatfuly accepted.

Head gaskets arent very hard to replace, if you buy some gaskets and have a torque wrench you could do it in a couple of hours alone.

Not sure how you would get coolant on the power steering resoviour unless its squirting there under pressure from somewhere else. (just re-read it) There is no way coolant can get inside it as far as I know.
