I have a problem with my coolent system in that if you look where the oil cooler pipes run under the alternator, when the header tank is filled water just runs out of this point.
The car was towed to a local garage who have done most of the more technical work on my let, they phoned me after about half an hour of having the car and said they suspected that a plug in the bottom end had failed and would need 2 hours labour just to investigate the problem.
I'm just wanting to know what this plug is, what it does and how hard it is to fix so i have some info when i get quoted for the fix.
I think that the damage was caused during winter after not having enough anti-freeze in due to an ongoing radiator problem.
Could this have caused damage to the bottom end and if it has, what am i lookin at to fix it?
Obviously, after spending months on upgrading, i'm expecting the worst, would be sods law if it was totally nacked.
Just lookin for a bit of info to put my mind at rest.
