So I went under my V6 for the first time this morning, to try and locate the sources of two small leaks I have.

My coolant is the only fluid that seems to be dropping, but I'm not 100% that it's coolant ending up on the floor.

The third picture is where I think the first leak is coming from, it's just under the cambelt. The second picture is the second place that I think a leak is coming from, what is this tube?

THe first picture is a bit of wheel arch missing. How would I go about getting a replacement for this?

I'm pretty stumped on how to find these leaks, there is two and they're only small.

Do you have any ideas on what it may be?

That looks more like oil and if so, my suspicion would be the oil cooler - a known trouble spot.

Behind the bumper on the right side will be a small radiator like device. That's the oil cooler. Follow the pipes back towards the engine and one will possibly be the pipe in your second picture.

Not oil cooler pipes.....power steering pipes.

Clive
Is the oil cooler on the drivers side or the passenger side?

Clive, those pipes are coming from the power steering? Where should I look to have a look for that? I haven't noticed the power steering fluid going down

Not sure I've ever seen a cover on the nearside especially on 6 speeds as the gearbox protrudes beyond the arch liner.
