Coolant puddle after egr delete

Deleted the egr cooler and changed all the other stuff last Sept. Pulled the toyhauler two weeks ago about 250 miles. Since it is not my DD I just backed it out of the garage today to find a puddle of coolant on the ground. It appears to be coming from the connection between intake manifold and the egr delete pipe. The blue hose is dry. What are my options? Take it back apart and use a sealant, or get a new gasket? If a sealant, what kind for this application?

I had a problem with that blue tube leaking after I did my EGR delete. I ended up using a heavy duty hose clamp that I found at ace hardware and torqued the hell out of it. Just make sure the hose it lined up evenly to both ends of the pipe or it WILL leak. Good luck.

That's the thing...the leak is not from the blue tube, it is where the delete pipe meets the intake manifold. Since I'm gonna have to take it apart, probably gonna get a new blue hose as well.

Yeh I've got mine torn apart right now fixing it. The delete has been in there for years by the previous owner and its been leaking pretty good. I kept thinking I was puking because I would smell coolant but could never find it till I went to change the oil and the dried coolant was all over the oil pan. Mine egr cooler delete pipe is held in with a 2 prong piece and it looks kinda like a crappy way of doing it compared to sinisters one piece fitting. I think I'm gonna jb weld the damn thing in there vs spending $300 on a new kit. I hate replacing stuff again so I hope it works. The pipe is wobbling all over in that intake at the bottom.
