Pulled out the EGR valve and....(any other suggestions while its appart)

I was doing the normal matance today, oil change, and clean egr valve, and when I pulled out the valve there was coolant dripping off of it and coolant was all in the egr. So I stripped the engine to reach the egr and took it out and vacuum tested it with a vacuum tester and no leaks showed up. Cold it be leaking somewhere else? Also since I have the truck appart what else should i do in the mean time. it has a 109k miles, Nothing changed all stock.

2005 F250 In slow mode.

chances are your cooler is shot. there should be no coolant on the valve or in the hole. if you do.......... sorry to say
