One of the cylinder block core plugs has rusted through,the price of the part is virtually nowt,
the price of fitting could be a bit more though,it looks a bit of awkward to get at sensibly without removing a few bits.

Going to try Wondarweld first......

Radweld sorted out a leaking core plug on an old Mk3 Cavalier I used to have. It was in a very awkward place, and loads of work was necessary to move things to access it.
