    On the way home now an " alternator not charging" warning flashed up. A quick look under the bonnet revealed that the serpentine belt had come off and coolant was over the front off the engine. It has happened before about 6months ago. The belt just got put back on.

    Could it be due to a faulty tensioner? Where would the fluid be coming from?

    So I re-installed the belt on Friday and it has just come again with coolant all over the front RHS of the engine. Anyone have any ideas where and what is causing the fluid to be expelled? Could it be the thermostat sticking and the built up pressure being relieved?

    It seems that the fluid leak is the root cause leading to the belt coming off.
