    hi guys, i got in my car last night and 10 seconds after starting it there was a loud bang, i couldnt see anything and it seemed to be running ok, but after looking this morning theres antifreeze all over the engine bay, im really concerned about this so any ideas guys?
     
  2. sounds nasty...eaither a coolant pipe has burst or ya water pump has exploded by the sound of things.

    Are you sure it's coolant? Where has it spilled from, how's ur power steering?

    I assume you've also checked things like your aux belt to check it's still there?
