    If so, between the manifold and gasket, between the gasket and heads, or both? Was a valley pan gasket leak and not the head gaskets thank God.

  9. Valley gasket, water pump or something else?

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    Came out of Sainsbury's yesterday and found my car had wet itself. All of the coolant that should have been inside the engine was now on the floor beneath it. From the drip pattern on the floor, it looks as though it only started to leak in the 30 feet or so before I parked so I doubt there's...
