Hello all
My 04 diesel tourer now on 187k has developed what I think is a coolant leak from the egr cooler.As I have got rid of windows 7 ( now using Linux ) I dont have access to the workshop manual I had, and was wondering if there is a pipe or o ring round the back of the ***embly next to engine block that could be leaking. I did clean the intake manifold of gunk when I first bought it but cant recall if there is a pipe or something that water could be leaking from, tucked to the back of it, next to the engine block out of sight.

I can sometimes catch a glimpse of steam /vapor coming from under the bonnet when car is stopped and facing sunlight , but the smell of it is creeping into the car. Rad and hoses all ok as far as I have checked, I recently changed coolant, visualy rad and pipework seem ok.
Cheers TJ
