How's the heater matrix looking?
You can make up a pressure tester with an old header tank cap and bike inner tube valve. Pump it up to about 10-15 psi and you'll soon see any leaks.

Ditto.

I only found mine very early one morning when it was quiet.

I heard a very faint hissing noise coming from under the bonnet.  :lol:
