Yeah that's what I was thinking.

I'm just going to take some tools with me so I can do a coolant flush and a change if it looks like it is getting out of hand. Water will probably find its way the other way at some point or other in which case I'll then do the leak stopper stuff. Self amalgamating tape will be traveling with me too.
