Coolant Leak and Funny Patch
I've got a 2008 Mini Cooper R56 with 3800 miles on the clock.
For a couple of week, i've noticed that the engine coolant level has been low so have topped it up a couple of times. After the second top-up, in less than a week (~200 miles), it is just below the minimum marker on the reservoir again.
I can't see or think of anywhere obvious that it is leaking from. It also always seems to drop to this level then not decrease any further.
Also, I notice that to the left and up from the reservoir, their is a small patch of some fluid on one of the engine pieces, again with no trail of leak. This is what is shown in the attached photo.
Could anyone please point me in the right direction.
