Seals on filler cap tend to be dodgey (comman fault) small leak somewhere (hoses/radiator) or the worst case scenario ur head gasket :eek: I hope u don't have any slimey gunge around ur oil fill cap, if you do it's the latter :(

theres no noticable leaks which is my concern :( no gunge around the oil cap, im not sure lol! im going to replace the cap i think...worst that can happen is it doesnt cure the problem..cap seems to be holding the pressure fine though :cry:

Just be a leak somewhere, have a good sccot around the engine bay you will find it eventually, and give the radiator a good looking at, you will see the antifreeze where it is leaking, just let it tick over for a while so it gets upto temerature and gets plenty of pressure in the system

as above, most possible a small leak...look for damp patches at the base or on the floor where you're parked
