comment Vauxhall corsa diesel leaking oil
If it is water, you shouldn't drive it - as that water is used to help cool the engine. If it is boiling out, your engine may overheat and fail. Expensively.

comment Could very minor impacts have caused electrical problems?
Have you checked to see if you left lights on, or the bump meant a door sensor was stuck open, leaving interior lights on? They are pretty likely. I've accidentally discharged my battery before by accidentally leaving the boot (trunk to US-ians) not quite shut and going on holiday for 2 weeks leaving the boot light on...

comment How could an oil drain plug fall out after 36 days and 2500 miles?
This doesn't really add anything else. Answers and comments already agree the most likely cause is that someone removed it, not a garage leaving it loose. But in any case if they did leave it loose it is impossible to prove - your own insurance is only ever going to be the successful route.

comment Is it safe to reuse oil that was drained for a repair?
@dodge - Paul explicitly says in his answer that it is almost certainly fine. It is only in these comments that he goes into his actual opinion. I'm not sure what your comments or flag are trying to accomplish, and I'd suggest rereading his post and comments to see why you are mistaken.
