Can't Stand Leaks?!
I have come to the conclusion that British cars have a certain amount of leaks considered accepted. For those of you however, who cannot stand leaks, here is my method of locating them.
Purchase some brake cleaner and after cleaning the suspected area, spray it down with Desenex or other aerosol foot powder! Run the engine at around 1500 rpm for around ten minutes and look for the leak. If it's bad enough it will soon show up as the cleaned area with the powder will reveal all.
I have found all types of leaks using this method, from transmission fluid to fuel leaks. Best of all, it cleans up easily!
