    brake fluid coming out of the clutch pipe which goes onto the gearbox at the top maybe?

    no reason why the turbo would whistle though...

    you sure its not coolant and theres a hose split (on mine, one of the heater hoses split underneath the battery tray area by rubbing on the gearbox mount bolt)

    some more info will be required but youd best get sniffing to find out what liquid it is!
