Brera engine steam

Hi guys

I've got a 2006 Brera 2.4JTD that has started to steam after a few miles use. There *seems* to be a water leak from a pipe at the front of the engine (not the radiator, not the main engine) which spits out fluid onto hot surfaces therefore creating the steam.

The engine temperature is fine, performance seems fine so it's not like the radiator has blown.

I can't be 100% sure where it's coming from (and I've taking it to a me bank tomorrow) so I wondered if you guys had any ideas/experience of this.

Check the coolant reservoir for splits.

My 159 had one that only opened up when hot. Straight onto the exhaust manifold.
