Does coolant react with anything to make it white powdery looking?
Cos I looked under my car to see a patch of trans fluid (not the problem because I know why that is there) and opened the bonnet and coming out from under the heat shield was some coolant which was on some white stuff and was also sprayed onto the steering column. Looked to me to be due to some chemical reaction...
Haven't had a chance to find exact source but will look tomorrow.
I really hoping this isn't head gasket no. 2 but I seriously doubt it. I am baffled...

yep, its burnt/dried coolant. some coolants tend to do it more than others - the tectaloy gold i had didnt do it at all, but this stuff im running now leaves huge white marks. looks ugly if you get a leak, but easy to find them :D
