Ride: BA XR6 Ute

Location: Brisbane - Perth
QLD, Australia

My ute is losing water, not only that but it seems sowmhow oil has come out from the cap and run down the engine, im only talkin like enouigh to cover a teaspoon, but still, wtf.

Im hoping its something simple, it looks like the genius;;s at ford put water and no coolant in, so im draining and flushin it this weekend and then gonna run it for a while and see how we go,

Otherwise if anyone has any suggestions, im all ears, (really, ive got like 20 of em)

Ive not lost any power, not used any oil, everything else is sweet, Might book it in for an inspection at mechanics in a few weeks,

the water leak will most likely be the o-ring at the back of the water pump that leads off to the heater.
my brothers ba got recalled for it.

Didn't the early BA's have a problem with the heater core as well as the seal?
