Just found quite a big puddle of fluid under my car - which wasnt there before. Drove the car on a 10 min motorway journey earlier today (prior to spotting the leak!), no obvious problems. Once I noticed the puddle I popped the bonnet and noticed some signs of similar fluid on a few of the pipes towards the front of the engine bay. The fluid seems to be slightly greasy/oily in nature, although not thick or dark enough to be oil. It seems to be a brown colour.
I am suspecting a coolant issue - bleed valve perhaps? I would really appreciate your thoughts on what this could be.
Bit of a bummer as am supposed to be driving from Manchester to Bristol tomorrow but I'm hesitant to do so now!
Thanks in advance!
