    Boot lid problem

    All sorted now guys was definitely water causing the problem, the sensor connection was soaked, dryed it out unplugged it for a day and it's been okay since. It was the bung letting water through cause of the cold weather. Sealed now though so all good! Thanks again everyone

Well I'm no expert but took it to the garage before and they did some really bad job at trying to fix it if anything they messed it up even more! Heres an old picture of where it's leaking.

    Creamy oil cap?!

    Sounds about right my coolant is slowly leaking aswell but I'm not sure if it's leaking inside the engine or outside as I can see a few drops around the temp housing... Don't think it'll be worth fixing the gasket if that's the case :(
