I played this game a few months ago.
Couldn't see where the leak was coming from and thought I had a good enough
look at the short piece of rubber line in the turbo coolant line and thought
it looked good.
Removed the p/s pump to get better access, thinking maybe w/p leak as well.
Finally found evidence of leak at small rubber hose in turbo coolant line.
Also found that t-belt was not properly tight and was able to tighten it up
without causing a w/p leak.
Had been fine ever since.
