  1. No problem. still haven't found out what this is, so until I can get a gasket it's a case of having to top up the coolant every now and then. It's not a massive leak and only leaks when the engine is running.
  2. ok thank you very much. Like I said earlier. The coil pack is bolted to a bracket which is directly above the bit I am describing. Thank you for your help so far.
  3. No it looks like its a gasket where the "lump" lol meets the engine.
  4. Don't think so, not 100% though. Its looks basically like a lump of metal bolted to the side of the head with two hoses and some sort of sensor, and it is from this joint that it is leaking I can see slightly where the gasket looks like it has slipped allowing it to leak.
  5. Ok thank you. The reason I was asking was, as stated above, in the haynes manual it says to take off the alternator to get to the thermostat, where this is directly under the coil pack itself nowhere near the alternator. Searching on-line I have seen it mentioned that the thermostats have a black plastic housing. However the bit I am referring to is metal. If I look under the alternator I can also see pipes from the radiator leading to something under there, which is why i presumed that was the thermostat and this other bit something else.
  6. Hi there, I have a Focus 1.6 55 plate and have a slight coolant leak. It is leaking from a part which is bolted onto the side of the head. It has two pipes coming off it and some sort of sensor or something screwed into it. It is directly underneath the coil pack. Pipes from it fo to the radiator and through the fire wall. I've looked in the haynes manual and it is not the thermostat, as it says that is underneath the alternator. This is the opposite side of the engine. Any help appreciated.
