57 2.4JTDM Brera oil leak?
I've had my 57 reg Brera for a couple of weeks now, and actually enjoying its various quirks! I've noticed a couple of things under the bonnet though. Firstly the engine coolant seems to go down fairly quickly. I've driven about 300 miles this week, and the level has dropped 1-2cm. Not sure whether it's a leak, or whether it's nothing to worry about, or both!
The other thing is that I've noticed a 'splatter' of a black liquid (presumably oil/lubricant) on the engine side of the coolant liquid box. I'm hoping it's some kind of pressure release valve making a mess, but can anyone shed any light on what it could be? I've cleaned it off and watched it come back after a drive, so it's definitely something that's still happening.
