hey guys, and any girls lol...

ive got a drama on the EB at the moment, its losing coolant/water to the order of a litre plus a day but its not overheating or playing funny buggers..yet, im taking it to ultra tune down the road next week but im pretty sure its the bottom rad hose.
to low coolant light doesnt come on so i assume theres still a bit left in there combine that it doesnt overheat, it gets a tad hotter than usual but the guage always goes up and down a lil..
i drive 40k to work each way everyday so if it was gona overheat i think it would have by now, yet its only started doing it in the last week.

any thoughts, ideas or theorys? i cant really see where its coming from but i suspect its down low, it seems to be dripping from the middle of the underneath of the car but maybe its running ontio something

Check the condition of the hoses under the intake manifold and also the heater hoses/tap. I had a heater hose just above the distributor split, which in turn sprayed coolant onto the dizzy. When the car was idling, you couldn't see where it was leaking from.
