Car details: Fiesta MK5 (2001) Endura-E 1.3 engine.
Steam started coming up from under the bonnet yesterday and we discovered a small jet of coolant spraying from inside the engine. At first we thought it was the pipe heading in to the oil filler cap, but on further inspection there is a hole in the engine block which is spraying out water when the engine is hot.
I've attached a photo of the offending hole. I'm sorry that there isn't much context to it as it's a bit of a close up. If you can't tell where it is I can try to describe it... As you look into the engine bay from the front of the car, it is on the right-hand side, vertical part of the engine block.
What I ask is, how easily can this be repaired? Anybody with any experience of this?
