Taking the car to Botany Bay

Botany Bay is located in Sydney. As you might know it was the first place where prioners arrived from Brittain to Australia. It is very beautiful which small beaches and sand stone rocks. I can also mention that Sydney harbour occupies a lot of space in the bay :(

After we had taken a walk we went to Maroubra beach and took a swim. We found a good parking lot and managed to get under the car. It is so low and sporty so it is not an easy task! However I think I have localised the leak (or one of the places where it is leaking). I think the car is leaking oil as well. Or the symptoms are a bit strange. One time we stopped it was dripping oil, no water. The second time we stopped it came water from the place I have been taking pictures of. After parking outside the house it is leaking from the left hand side of the engine room (previously it has been the right hand side). This is really pusseling us… However the oil level is still very good and it is no water in the oil. The cooler liquid had also had a high level. The same level (or almost) as when we went to IKEA last time. This is promising. Just to blow up our confindence a bit we noticed that all cars basically where leaking at Maroubre beach. BMW, Volvo XC90, Marcedes, you name it.

Before presenting you the pictures I would like to tell you that we went to a Danish party last night. Some reflections on this can be read at Sofia Karlsson’s blog from Sydney.
