    I think if you search you will find a enough pictures to guide you through both jobs. Im not sure anyone would be willing to use mr muscle on another car, i certainly wouldnt risk it!

    What model have you got? If it's a 2.0 it's fairly easy. If it's a 3.0 then it's a bit more difficult!

    Its not a 5 minute job & tbh the Mr Muscle way is only a temp solution if it actually works aswell, best bet is to remove turbo & clean it properly.

    Honestly I dont think its worth £200. Firstly with that money i can get an indy to change clutch and flywheel. If u are going to go ahead I hope you get him to clean intake manifold by bolting it off.

    Also try BG244 in your tank to see if it makes a difference

    How long has the BG244 been in the tank? You need to give it at least a third of a tank to clean up your system. It won't make any difference straight off.

    Have a look under your oil filler cap or on the dipstick for white / yelowish sludge - this would most likely indicate that water is getting into the oil

    Also try putting in a dry place & put cardboard/paper underneath to see whereabouts its coming out from, a general area will help trace it, but thats a vast loss of coolant tbh if it was empty.
