Coolant had been leaking in small bits, I'd been topping it up for months. Then forgot to top it up n loud sound happened whilst driving. Pulled over cos steam was coming out of engine. Then coolant was all over the road under the car. Car was towed to repairer n it took him 3 weeks to get and replace water pump.
