where is the coolant coming from?

so my truck hasnt been run since friday, and when i went outside this afternoon, there was a big puddle of coolant/water under the front of the truck. so i popped the hood and the first place i see water is under the egr cooler... think its bad or is the little rubber hose on it leaking?

It's the rubber hose leaking. This is a very common, but easy to fix problem.

Agree, common for the hose to leak, replace with the updated blue hose.

I call BS. Go back to the dealer and ask for part number RH-153.

You don't need to remove the turbo to replace that hose.

my 04 is leaking from the egr cooler hose. how are you able to change it out without taking off the turbo? looks impossible.

Remove the two t-30 torx bolts from the oil cooler adapter/top plate, seperate the two halfs and pull the top plate with the hose still connected. This use to be a very sweet warranty repair until ford found out how we were doing it. If you are in the SW Fl area I would be more then happy to help/do it for you.
