I just got home from down town, got out of the car, and i hear this hissing noise, so i look under the car and see all this coolant. I very quickly pop the bonnet and see all this coolant coming from under the injectors (is there a hose under there?). I really didn't need this, I'm broke, the rego just came, and now this....
Please help guys, please give me your opinions on what this is.
I'm really hoping it's just a shit hose that's finally hit the dust...
on my Ef 6 i had a similar problem, the heater hose and valve were right there and when they gave way they pissed coolant everywhere around that general area, including all over the coil pack, especialy with the miss firing, i was convinced i had blown the head gasket, untill i saw what really happend..
May not apply to you, as i dont know where the heater hose runs in an ED, but have a look under the car to see if its split if its even around there. Or like me, i couldnt see it at first, whack some coolant in there or atleast some distilled water, start it up and see where its comming from....
If its comming from between the head and the block, prepare to find some clean underware, you'll need it, when you find out the price of repair.

Thanks mate, i think i have the same problem, because the hose i saw under there was the heater hose.
Mine lost almost all it's coolant so i will not be game to start it untill i put some water in there or something to see where it comes from.
I'm just lucky whatever happened, happened when i got home. otherwise i might have been eating a fried 4.0 litre engine for tea :err:
I have the same problem in my ea...i couldnt tell where it was coming from though? It almost looked like it was coming from the overflow hose...maybe theres something weird happening with the radiator cap
Ok i know it's the hose, me and my dad put water in and i saw it coming out the heater hosing. Will get some new hosing and fix it on sunday.
Ohhh and i would have to take the injectors off to get to it hey?
Ok I'm fixing it now as we speak (well trying) but....I cannot get the clip off the hose (small one). Can anyone help me out here?
I took the injector rail off but still can't. Please help guys, would be very much appreciated.
