Technical 2001 2.0 JTD 16V Fiat Ulysse - Water pouring out at rear of engine

Oct 3, 2006
Hi all,

I have a 2001 2.0 JTD 16V Fiat Ulysse.

The issue I have have is for some time now, I have had to keep topping up the water on her.

The Head Gasket is fine and thought it to be leaking water from, most likely, a hose, somewhere.

Anyway, Yesterday, came home from a run, temp below 90 (less than have way on the gauge as is normal - no overheating).

Steam coming from the engine and water in the gutter of the road.

Tops it up and bleeds it and starts engine. Water peeing out underneath. Took a video as best as I can.

The water didn't appear to leak while topping it up (a lot of topping up)... it only occurred when the engine was ticking over.

I know it is a long shot and that the car would have to be viewed, but anyone, from the video footage, know where it maybe leaking from, please?

There is an issue with blue smoke on start up and pouring out (from exhaust) when standing with engine ticking over ie: traffic lights/jam.

Are there any mechanics near Port Talbot, South Wales on here, by any chance?

Your help is appreciated on the water issue.

I will edit this post with a link to the video in several minutes.


Not to sound odd but.. why havnt you taken it to a garage were they can just look undernieth while its running.. surly they wont charge you or maybe the core plug has sprung a leak..they pop if it gets really cold or through rust.. if your sure all the hoses are fine they can get fine splits that leak when the preasure builds up..
But mind it doesnt over heat if the hwad goes tou get bubbling un the expantion tank. And water comes shooting out when you take the cap of but its the bubbleing you hear first when yiu stop the engine after a run
Hhope this helps..
