Took the esprit out for a data log run this morning and when I got back I was greeted with this….

steam from coolant leaking onto the exhaust manifold from cylinder number 4 area (approx).

There was no steam from the exhaust though.

It’s only metal, it cannot win!

You can also test the coolant for exhaust gas with a tester kit :thumbup:

Ahh, I'd hoped it was that. Minor thing in terms of knock-on consequences, unfortunately requiring removal of the lump for a proper fix.
