If it's coming from "behind the engine" it could be the same problem that Boxwolf has with an octopus and/or return pipe? I don't have a clue but that's my guess.

Could be a multitude of things but I'd think octopus is most likely - "dribbles fluid".

Maybe worth a punt for someone who could view & assess. Have seen a BX failing MOT as "dangerous hydraulic leak - could not continue test" where one of the two rearmost octopus connections had popped off. All depends on what the rest of the car is like.
Occasionally constrained by geography. When not driving, can rely on ferry, two wheels and musclepower when a couple of miles as the crow flies would become a round-road-trip ten times the distance.

Anyone down that way?
