Leaking coolant

Hey everybody I'm leaking coolant somewhere on the back right end of the motor don't know exactly where it is. I think it has something to do with the overflow because it only leaked till the coolant level get just above the min line is there a hose back there that is related to the over flow or could it be something else. Heads look fine. I just put on a new coolant cap so I don't think it's used to the amount of psi that is going through it now it never did it with the old cap.

I'd be checking the small hose that goes from the oil cooler to the EGR cooler. If yours is orange, that's definitely your issue. The new hose is blue and less likely to leak but they still do.

If it is the hose is it a simple fix? Just replace the hose? It's still a bit weird it doesn't leak when it's running though I would think it would leak more at that point

Kind of a pain because of where it is located but not horrible.

It doesn't leak when it's running because it's hot and swells which stops the leak. After it cools off and contracts, the leak begins.
