Recieved a call off the missus, smoke coming through the bonnet so iv parked the car up on the grass near bishop viaduct.
I left work early to go and have a look, it wasn't smoke it was steam.
Got the car home and had a look underneath, seems I have coolant coming from somewhere, its running down onto the front subframe, sump and other places round about. It was dripping onto the hot engine hence why the missus thought it was going to go boom. It aint a lot of coolant but I've looked underneath and cant figure out wtf its coming from.
Any ideas?

The most common coolant pipe to fail is the top rad hose, my money is on that

Good luck

To be honest paul, its a car that if I sell, in 10years time my son will say "ere dad that white subaru you had are going for 10k now". Its unabused completely standard. I havnt had the chance to enjoy driving it yet but im sure ill get there. Im waiting on Kindon getting me a price on all the ancillary hoses to give to Mr Jones to fit.

Iv just had a look and water aint gone down, iv been underneath and there is residue on the cradle and on the base of the up-pipe. I let car warm up and laid underneath and a few little drop were on the cradle but can I shite find where from. Am I right that the top banjo bolt on turbo is water in and the 1 underneath is a oil feed?
The thing with water is it finds its own path, iv looked all over the engine, ICV, throttle body and no signs of water.
Heavens openez up now so came in.

you have oil in on the top of the turbo and oil out under the turbo, the two on the side are the water in and out, i had a similar leak and was the bottom water pipe on the side of the turbo it was rubbing on the gearbox and put a hole in it,

Just a little update, had a really good look today, been under it, over it the lot. I noticed coolant standing on top of the block which led to me looking higher up. Only leak I could find was on the idle control valve, the RH pipe some how has come loose and coolant has been dripping out of there and finding a path down the LH side of the engine. So iv managed to sort it temporarily til I find a replacement part. Seems to be ok at the moment, no water dripping onto the road. Only thing that is noticeable is oily smoke coming from turbo side. Im hoping with the coolant being oily texture its just that burning off.
