    Coolant low Oil high!

    Just about to head of out on a long ish drive, filled the screen wash (boy do those headlight washers suck the fluid for nothing) though it was about time i checked the oil level as i hadn't done it in a few weeks and noticed its rather high thinking this was strange went and then checked the other resoviars only to find the coolant level is just below the min marker.
    Am i right in thinking the worse?

    bear in mind the car has only covered 7000 since the 20th of March and the fluids are all checked at cold.

    Many Thanks

    That's not good mate! This may happen because of a faulty water pump or a gasket gave up. Try to remove the oil cap an take a look inside the engine. Do you see some kind of foam?
