    Coolant leakage!! Advise!

    Ive noticed since doing my runs at santa pod last sat that the temp of my engine (water temp) rises much much faster than it used to. Upon investigation my coolant bottle has a tiny amount of coolant around the lip and about 5-6months ago my mfd flagged up coolant level. Do we think that its a combination of it a) being summer and having hotter air comin into engine and b) loosing coolant gradually. Is this a common ploblem on the astras?
