antifreeze leak

I can see antifreeze around my starter and coming down around my bell houseing. Any ideas? I hope its not my head gaskets. I have been loosing coolant for a while but never seen it drip out just lose about a gal every couple months or so but now its leaking. It had been siting all day I just changed my fuel filters and started it up and was checking for leaks and found it. Looked in the drive way and don't see any sign of a long term leak.

It is probably the small coolant hose from the oil cooler to the egr cooler. If it is red/orange it should be changed to the updated blue hose.


Lord I shall lead them to the water but I will not try to make them drink

no dice man, i have an 04 and recently had a similar leak if the nose was parked high. the orange hose looked fine, but it would spin on the barbs, traced the leak and did an egr delete, leak gone.

yes you need to pull the turbo to fix, let alone do ther delete.

Coolant and flush and hose repair probably not a bad price.

Glad it worked out for you.

That little hose can be replaced without the removal of the turbo, if it is the OEM hose and replacing with OEM. Most delete kits have hose clamps, thus, the turbo might need to be removed if they ever leak. Tough to reach that covered up clamp.
