    Hi guys.....

    i noticed this weekend after washing my car that i have a perfect circular wet patch under the carpet on my drivers side foot well.. about the size of a small plate.... also for about the past 4-5months i have been having to top my coolent up every 1000 miles... (asked local garage to test pressure.. and it did not lose any pressure so i wasnt so worried)

    could these be linked?? :idea:or totally different ?


    any help would be fantastic!!
